Techland’s cancelled game Hellraid is being resurrected as Dying Light DLC

How often does a game get new DLC five years on? Maybe more often than I can recall offhand but hey, here's Dying Light announcing an upcoming DLC for its zombie action parkour world from 2015. As with the main game, you'll be able to dive into Dying Light - Hellraid either alone or with friends. It's planned for release sometime this summer.

The decade, as told in grappling hooks

The last ten years have brought us many joys. We've already celebrated the best games of the past decade, but with such scattergun nomination comes neglect. Only three of the fifty games we picked had grappling hooks, so clearly the entire endeavour was pointless and you will need an alternative resource.Here's my definitive guide to the swinging tenties. I haven't mentioned Worms, because they get…

Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The best FPS games on PC

The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it’s the gung-ho simplicity - look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It's as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this…

Cyberpunk 2077 augments its team with Dying Light’s PvP crew

CD Projekt Red today announced an interesting partnership today with small studio Digital Scapes, with initial plans for them to work on upcoming mega-budget immersive sim Cyberpunk 2077. Digital Scapes recently made some waves through their work on Dying Light's surprisingly entertaining asymmetrical PvP mode while Techland focused on the single-player side of the game.Tempting as that sounds, the announcement says that Digital Scapes will…

Premature Evaluation – Dying Light: Bad Blood

The sound of an explosion and a huge burst of flame sends me sprinting for cover. The attack wasn’t directed at me, it turns out. One of my fellow survivors had walked into a hive of zombies and he was chargrilling them. I stay hidden behind a van and watch him duke it out. We’re both after the same thing: blood samples that will allow…

Competitive zombie hunt Dying Light: Bad Blood drop-kicks into early access

Dying Light: Bad Blood is an odd beast - a volatile mutation, split from Techland's excellent zombie survival sandbox Dying Light. Twelve players roam the infested city of Harran, hunting for blood samples from pulsating zombie hives. Whoever fills up first gets a ride out of town. Competitive aspect and cringeworthy "brutal royale" designation aside, it looks very much like Dying Light, with familiar environments, enemies…

Steam Charts: Morbidly Repetitive Edition

Thank God you're here. Listen, I don't want to over-hype things, but this might be the most essential and life-changing article you ever read. Because if you only click through to read this, you will LITERALLY find out the top ten (nine) grossing games on Steam last week, and seriously, if you bought one of them, you will feel so bloody validated.

Dying Light: Bad Blood starts battling royale in September

Take twelve people who are good at jumping, drop them into a zombie-infested city, and turn them loose to loot, level up, and murder each other until one emerges triumphant. That's Dying Light: Bad Blood, an upcoming multiplayer standalone spin-off from Techland's parkour-o-zombsmashing shooter series. Y'know, it's a Battle Royale/Hunger Games-ish doodad, as is the style of the time. But on a smaller scale, and…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Podcast: The naughty games we weren’t allowed to play

Psst. I know mum said you weren’t allowed to listen to those hellions on your favourite podcast anymore, but the hosts of the Electronic Wireless Show won’t tell if you don’t. This week we’re talking about the games we weren’t allowed to play as youngsters, but did anyway. Alice suffered strict rationing of The Sims 2, and Dave (oh hello Dave) was looked at with…

Dying Light 2 announced, co-written by Chris Avellone

More first-person parkour-o-zombiemurder is coming from Techland in Dying Light 2, announced today at E3. Once again, we'll get to leap and fight through (and over) a zombie-infested city, run missions for people, and try to survive. Simply more Dying Light would be grand, but this sounds like it's going ambitious on the story front too, drafting Chris "The Human Stretch Goal" Avellone as a…

Has Dying Light been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse.Dying Light’s zombies are spooky, groaning and flailing at me as I parkour my player character across awnings and rooftops, but in the brightness of day, they’re exposed. They’re slow — slow enough that they’ll never catch up with my sprinting hero — and…

Dying Light’s free Prison Heist rewards speed with loot

Dying Light, like the best of zombies, keeps on picking itself up to take a bite out of my free time. Yesterday, Techland's cult hit zombie parkour sandbox was blessed with yet another chunky free content update, adding a lengthy new mission for 1-4 players set in Harran's zombie-and-soldier infested prison. Players still exploring the Old Town streets might also bump into a unique Demolisher zombie…

Dying Light celebrates three years of zombie parkour fun

The enduring success of Dying Light is a pleasant surprise. Nobody really expected too much of Techland's Dead Island spinoff, but the studio weathered a rough launch and continued to support the game through patches, free content updates and (eventually) a truly excellent expansion.Most other studios would be done with a game after the inevitable Definitive Goaty Edition, but late last year Techland renewed their…

Podcast: Should survival games die?

No. Let's not be ridiculous. But there are so many examples of bad survival games that it’s important to remember the good ones. So that’s what we are doing on the latest RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. We're breaking stones over the heads of rubbish survival games, but cooking, salting and eating the delicious ones. Adam wraps himself up in The Long Dark but…
