Originally planned as a new game development it was canceled and Hellraid for Dying Light was born.
Set amongst a medieval-style demonic realm of monsters you must fight your way out of a guarded stronghold.
The fortress has been overrun by an undead army.
The game is in stark contrast to Dying Light’s more realistic post-apocalyptic setting.
Upon playing an old arcade video game in the basement of the Harran tower block, you are transported to another realm.
Swords, hammers and axes will help you escape the nightmarish dungeons of the fortress which can be replayed multiple times.
Playing through Hellraid will reward prizes that can be used in your adventures through Harran.
Better weapons are unlocked using Hellraid’s own progression system.
The game can also be played in a co-op mode to test your skills even further.
Developed by Techland and published by Warner Bros. Interactive, Dying Light was released in 2015 to critical acclaim.
The game takes place after a zombie apocalypse and you must survive the wasteland while helping others and staving off factions as well as the undead.
Played in first-person, the action is fast-paced and includes an excellently implemented free-running mechanic.
An RPG style upgrade and progression system give the game a level of realism as you eventually get better at combat, stealth and upgrading weapons.
Dying Light also features an in-depth story and choice system similar to that of games like Fallout 3 and Deus Ex.
The title received good reviews from online gaming outlets such as GameSpot and IGN who scored the game 7 and 8.5 out of 10 respectively.
Critical acclaim and excellent sales proved the game’s popularity with gamers.
Dying Light sold over 1 million copies in its first week in the United States alone, breaking The Evil Within’s new game I.P sales record.
A sequel to Dying Light is also in the works and is set to be released sometime next year.
The Hellraid for Dying Light release date is set for July 23, 2020.
