Dying Light – the game that just keeps giving – is back in the limelight again, this time as players get the chance to celebrate six years since launch with a brand new Zombie Hunt and a tasty little new Tactical Unit dropping in to play.
It seems crazy that Dying Light is now six years old – particularly as it seems like yesterday we were celebrating the half decade mark – and even more since it’s been a long old time since we last heard any squeak of a sequel. But that does means Techland are able to focus on the here and now and just as they decide to showcase the PC version for free for the weekend, the Zombie Hunt Event pops up.
The two-week Zombie Hunt event gives players the opportunity to traverse the city of Harran as usual, just this time they will be terrorised by the undead GRE operatives, mutated bodies that are seemingly extra resilient to being put down. It’ll be up to you – as Crane – to rescue survivors and to retrieve supplies in order to be granted special rewards.
What’s more exciting though is the chance to go and purchase the cheap Harran Tactical Unit Bundle. Priced at a mere £2.49, this will let you attempt to pacify the situation in the best possible way – utilising new armor, new weaponry and new skins. In fact, there’s a bit of everything included here with all of the following allowing you to take down those undead masses with relative ease.
- “Protector” Armor Skin, which boosts movement during night
- “Guardian” Rifle with burst fire mode
- “Dispatcher” Shotgun
- “HyperArgument” Double-handed hammer with hyper-mode effect
- “Four-Wheeler” Buggy skin with police light
You’ll find the Harran Tactical Unit Bundle and the new Zombie Hunt available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC. Further, that free Steam weekend will run from now until Monday 1st March.
Join the Harran Tactical Unit with this new bundle and help your team members pacify the zombie situation! Here, only the best will make it. Become a part of an elite police unit and investigate the dangers lurking in Harran. Form a team with your friends to make sure you’re covered! The zombies refuse to give up; in fact, their numbers are rising as we speak. With the situation in Harran getting worse by the hour, we’re left with no other choice but to send a Harran Tactical Unit into the city. Become one of these elite officers and give the infected a taste of what happens when professionals enter the scene. Which you’ll do at roaring speed in your new buggy, the Four-Wheeler. By the time zombies see your lights flashing, it will be too late for them to retreat. Clear your way with a special HTU hammer that’ll send your enemies flying with its permanent hypermode effect. Then, open fire before they rally and pick them off with your new rifle or shotgun. Do whatever’s necessary, but remember: the operation must not fail.
