Techland’s upcoming Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition will include an all new, harder difficulty mode. The Nightmare Mode is a new difficulty level which restricts overpowered Easter Egg weapons, introduces XP penalties for dying, ramps up the difficulty of enemies, and more. Basically, it’s like someone got some Dark Souls in your Dying Light.
“We’ve designed the Nightmare Mode for those seeking a really challenging and immersive experience. Nightmare Mode takes everything that was brutal in our Hard Mode and twists it even more” – says producer Tymon Smektała. “We’re trying to bring the Dying Light experience closer and closer to the feeling of a real apocalypse survival experience where every move you make can really determine if you live or die. We’ve added one bit of salvation though. Playing Nightmare Mode in co-op will earn you XP faster and increase your chance of finding gold tier weapons.”
Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition launches on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC in February.
