Earlier in the week, we got the very unexpected announcement that the original Dying Light was going to have some type of crossover with Valve’s beloved Left 4 Dead series. It wasn’t clear what exactly the crossover would entail, but now we have our first look.
The crossover will be a limited time event mode that will see super aggressive zombies (or Virals, as they’re called here) that mimic the fast pace of the Left 4 Dead games. Sadly, it doesn’t seem any of the iconic characters from Valve’s franchise will be there, but it will include three new weapons from those games: Electric Guitar, Frying Pan and Golf Club. The three blueprints for those can be found in the DLC and other variants can be found through doing various challenges. It’s not quite Left 4 Dead 3, but it’s quite the simulation.
Dying Light is available now, and the ambitious sequel Dying Light 2 is coming out way in Spring of next year, which you can read more about through here. The Left 4 Dead event is live now and will last until October 28th.
