Techland has announced the release date for the Hellraid DLC coming to Dying Light. The dark fantasy-themed content will now be released on July 23 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for $9.99. Dying Light – Hellraid will also get a beta this weekend for anyone who pre-orders the DLC on Steam.
Dying Light – Hellraid is a DLC expansion to Dying Light, Techland’s open-world zombie game. This is not a full-on standalone game, but rather DLC content the developers created while the originally announced Hellraid project is on hold. Techland is not working on the full Hellraid at this time. Instead the studio is developing Dying Light 2.
In the new release date trailer above, you can see players explore a dark fantasy world where instead of zombies, they fight demonic hellspawn while using medieval weapons. There will be both single-player and co-op options as well.
The pre-order beta will be hosted this weekend from June 26 to June 29. Anyone who pre-orders the Hellraid DLC through Steam can gain access to the beta.
Dying Light 2 was originally set to be released this spring but was delayed so the developers could make further improvements to the core game. Check out a 26-minute gameplay preview with developer commentary in the video above.
