Today Techland published another episode of its ‘Highlights’ video series, in which the developer details the multiple improvements and additional content being added to the upcoming Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition. The new video focuses on the Nightmare Mode – a new difficulty level that restricts overpowered Easter Egg weapons, introduces XP penalties for dying, ramps up the difficulty of enemies, and more.
“We’ve designed the Nightmare Mode for those seeking a really challenging and immersive experience. Nightmare Mode takes everything that was brutal in our Hard Mode and twists it even more” – says producer Tymon Smektała. “We’re trying to bring the Dying Light experience closer and closer to the feeling of a real apocalypse survival experience where every move you make can really determine if you live or die. We’ve added one bit of salvation though. Playing Nightmare Mode in co-op will earn you XP faster and increase your chance of finding gold tier weapons.”
Nightmare Mode will be a part of Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition, which launches February 9, 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One (available boxed and digital). Players who already have the base version of the game will be able to buy the expansion Dying Light: The Following individually as downloadable content.
