Pay $10 Million, Get Dying Light and a Role in a Movie That Might Not Exist
Pay $10 million for The Spotlight Edition of the zombie game and you'll get to play a supporting role in "Dying Light: The Movie."
Have an extra $10 million burning a hole in your pocket? Looking to pick up Dying Light's new Enhanced Edition? If so, UK retailer GAME has a version of the game you may be interested in.
GAME and developer Techland have partnered for The Spotlight Edition of Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition. For $10 million, you will be cast in a supporting role for Dying Light: The Movie (which we're not even sure is a real thing), and receive acting classes and a bunch of other rewards (see above).
Maybe the $10 million will be used to finance the movie? It's all very strange, since a Dying Light movie doesn't appear to have been announced. A Techland representative declined to comment on specifics when approached by GameSpot today.
Some of the other bonuses included with The Spotlight Edition include four copies of the game, training from a stuntman, and an expenses-paid trip around the world to promote the movie.
This isn't the first time GAME and Techland have team up for an over-the-top version of Dying Light. For the game's launch, the retailer offered a $380,000 version of the game that included a zombie-proof shelter and parkour lessons, among other things. It's unclear if anyone actually bought this.
There is only one Spotlight Edition of Dying Light available. You can buy it from GAME's website here.
Dying Light Enhanced Edition and the expansion The Following launched on February 9 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Following is a very substantial add-on, at least in terms of size, as its map is twice as big as the original game's.
