WB Games has announced a special pre-order bonus for their upcoming survival horror game Dying Light: an exclusive “Be the Zombie” mode that adds PvP multiplayer to the game as well as the option to, well, be the zombie. Imagine that!
The mode will allow players to become a Night Hunter, a specially mutated zed with superhuman speed, special attacks, and a grappling-hook tendril to help navigate the environment. All of these skills will come into play as the Night Hunters have to defend their hives from those pesky humans.
Playing as a Night Hunter offers its own upgradable skill tree, with unique rewards and perks exclusive to the character class. This multiplayer mode adds another layer of gameplay on top of the existing story campaign.
Dying Light will be out in 2014 for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
