Dying Light’s new DLC pack, Hellraid, shall be arriving on Steam July 23. The enlargement, which sends gamers via demon-infested fortress dungeons seeking bounties to gather, could be pre-purchased on Steam now for $9.99 / £7.99.
Hellraid, as we’ve famous earlier than, is definitely a revival of types – it’s the title of an motion RPG Techland was engaged on previous to Dying Light. It was mothballed when the studio hit it massive with Dying Light in 2015, and now, 5 years later, it’s returned within the type of a bizarre little bolt-on DLC.
The trailer doesn’t give a lot away: there’s a haunted-looking arcade cupboard that seems within the basement of the tower, with a “insert soul to continue” message flashing on the display screen. It’s sort of a mix of The Last Starfighter and the Polybius city legend, by which an arcade machine serves as a bridge between two completely different worlds. Play the sport, and also you’re yanked out of Harran and right into a dungeon stuffed with animated skeletons, demons, and lord is aware of what else. It’s Dying Light meets Ray Harryhausen, and it seems to be like loads of enjoyable.
Here’s the trailer:
Techland says Hellraid consists of its personal development system, and also you’ll should work your approach up the ranks to unlock new dungeon-themed implements of destruction. There are swords, axes, and hammers to make use of, which function trophies to your achievements, however which will also be introduced again and used in opposition to the undead in Harran.
Hellraid could be performed solo or in teams of as much as 4, and Techland says it’s going to be troublesome regardless of the way you select to play.

Hellraid could also be simply the factor to tide us over till the Dying Light 2 launch date, each time that winds up coming alongside.
