The first-person hack ‘n’ slash at least survives in such a way from Techland, who – for some inexplicable reason – continue to support Dying Light, which launched more than five years ago.
Hellraid started as a mod for Dead Island (Project Hell), but in the May 2013 announcement, it was a full game. A year later, it was announced for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and they also said they will use Chrome Engine 6, their in-house engine. In May 2015, they paused development altogether to focus on expanding Dying Light. Now, the circle has been closed.
„No one knows where the strange arcade machine came from. One day the residents of the Tower just found it in the basement after an odd power outage. They took it upstairs unaware that their find is a gateway to another realm. Shake up your Dying Light experience by using this eerie device to access a completely new game mode based on Techland’s currently-on-hold first-person fantasy slasher Hellraid.
Hack through the Hordes of Hell – Step into a portal to leave the familiar streets of Harran behind and emerge in an otherworldly stronghold overrun by servants of Hell. Slay brand-new demonic enemies with medieval swords, axes, and hammers as you venture through stone corridors and dimly lit chambers.
Master a New Game Mode – Prove your skills in intense, rewarding runs through the demon-infested dungeon. Pick up bounties for additional prizes as you revisit the fortress. Improve your Hellraid rank to access new weapons you can also wield outside of the infernal realm.
Raid Alone or in Co-Op – Take your chances alone or gather a party of up to four people and be certain Hell’s minions will always be ready for you. Prepare to face unholy forces matching your numbers and strength for a formidable challenge,” the Steam page reads.
Dying Light: Hellraid is going to launch on July 23 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam). It’s going to cost 10 dollars. While we wait for Dying Light 2 (which we suspect to be a PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X-only title as a launch game for both consoles) and Diablo IV, this could be a good replacement.
