Dying Light Revives An Old Techland Game As DLC This Summer
Hellraid may continue to remain in development limbo, but the spirit of the game is coming to Dying Light as new paid DLC this summer.
Turns out Dying Light isn't dead quite yet--and neither is the long delayed Hellraid. Techland is planning one more paid DLC expansion for its parkour-focused zombie survival game, and it's scheduled to release this summer.
The new DLC, Dying Light: Hellraid, takes place in the dark fantasy universe of Hellraid, a Techland game originally scheduled to release for Xbox 360 , PS3, and PC in 2013 before being delayed for release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2014. In January 2015, Techland officially put development of the game on hold. Though it takes place in a different universe, the DLC will still feature Dying Light's traditional style of gameplay.
"We wanted to bring a piece of Hellraid to our community, and this is our way of sharing a bit of the dark fantasy world with them," Techland senior PR manager Ola Sondej wrote in an email to GameSpot. "We currently have no plans to resume development of Hellraid, and the game is still on hold."
Dying Light 2 currently has no release date. Originally scheduled for sometime in Spring 2020, the game was delayed indefinitely with Techland writing, "We need more development time to fulfill our vision."
