Dying Light to Receive Free Hard Mode Upgrade

One critic complaint for Dying Light is the difficulty level, and the developer hopes to address the problem with free DLC by adding a hard mode

Finding Dying Light to be too easy? Most critics do as well. Developer Techland has heard the complaints, and a new hard mode will be released for free later this year.

An announcement on Twitter revealed that Dying Light will be receiving new skins and an all-new hard mode. The developer claims that it's "the first of many additions to come."

The upgrade will be available for all three platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One). No official date has been set, but producer Tymon Smektala told GameSpot that the goal is to release it "around the start of March."

Dying Light is a survival horror game published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It received a 7 out of 10 here on GameSkinny, and it's been relatively well-received by critics with some complaints about the game's story and difficulty level. The developer has fixed some technical problems and hopes to address the difficulty in the first DLC released for the game.

It's also been popular for having multiple easter eggs, including playing a recreation of World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros, adding Clicker zombies from The Last of Us, and various signs throughout the game like "Left 4 Bread."

    Do you know if you are able to change difficulty midway through playing? I would love to play this game on the hardest, it kinda feels a little easy because of your freedom of movement.

    Found nothing on that subject, although I hope they would have that feature. Most games have that ability to swap on the fly.
