Dying Light is the latest game to add a season pass, joining just about every other large-scale title released in recent years.
Those who pick up Techland’s mash-up of visceral combat, athletic parkour and the undead will be able to further the experience by purchasing the aforementioned pass for $19.99. Doing so will net them a combined discount on three unique add-ons, which will each offer something different, be it new missions, additional items or wave-based arena combat.
This is how the presser describes each one:
Cuisine and Cargo – Available first for Season Pass holders, these two hardcore missions let players put their skills to the ultimate test. Investigate buildings sealed off in the very first days of the outbreak – with the infected inside. Explore ominous corridors of once the most famous restaurant in Harran, and employ both stealth and combat to ransack a zombie-filled loading bay at an abandoned railroad yard.
Ultimate Survivor Bundle – Players will receive seven unique in-game items that will bring fighting zombies to a whole new level. Grab three special outfits and four blueprints for over-the-top weapons to make your survival in the quarantine zone a good bit easier.
The Bozak Horde – The final Season Pass drop will deliver a new map and gameplay, playable in either single-player or co-op. Go inside the Harran Stadium, the most famous landmark in the city, and test your combat know-how against relentless hordes of the Infected. Fight increasingly stronger and larger enemy waves as you oppose a mysterious psychopath called Bozak.
Another option is to purchase the Dying Light Ultimate Edition, which will soon become available for pre-order. This particular version will include not only a copy of the game and special packaging, but also the season pass itself.
Start preparing your survival kits, because Dying Light isn’t far off. The winner of one of my two E3 2014 Game of Show nominations will unleash its infected on January 27th, 2015.
