It’s the perfect time to say goodbye to Harran, the disaster town at the heart of the 2015 zombie game Dying Light. As developer Techland gears up for Dying Light 2’s release date, which is less than two weeks away, it’s hosting a limited-time event in the original Dying Light – capping off seven solid years of regular content updates.
Spike’s Story: Last Call is set after the events of the Dying Light campaign. You have dealt with the bandit leader Rais, but rather than disperse, the bandits are now invading the town. They broke into a shelter, exposing the survivors there to zombie infection, and it created a whole new wave of “virals” rampaging through the streets of Harran.
Your old pal Spike is setting up a new safe zone for the survivors who escaped the bandits. The first part of the event begins today, January 24, and will run until January 28. During this time, you will encounter survivors equipped with special protective suits who will fight alongside you, but you will also encounter many more viruses while you are there.
Here is the trailer:
You will find two new local bounties during this first phase of the event. The first requires you to kill bandits, and in order to do so, you will get the first part of a new weapon developed by Spike, called the Crankshaft. It looks both heavy and spiky, two great qualities to have in a Dying Light weapon.
The second bounty tasks you with helping survivors and killing zombies “using the environment” – which likely results in triggering traps set by Spike in key areas. Complete this bounty and you’ll earn three valuable King Mods.
We’ll likely know more about the next phase of the event when it begins on January 28.
Dying Light 2 is just around the corner, but some new mayhem in Harran seems like the perfect way to dispatch the original Dying Light.
