Techland announced in a press release today that Dying Light’s dark-fantasy Hellraid DLC is expanding today with a free update adding a brand-new Story Mode alongside new areas, weapons, and visual and technical enhancements. The free update to Hellraid’s dungeon-slasher experience is available today for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Story Mode is a narrative-rich addition that draws adventurers deep into the demon-infested bowels of Ba’al’s Temple to rescue Lucius, a mysterious and powerful mage from captivity. Story Mode features three new quests—Clavis Stone, Imprisoned, and Beneath Seals—all available in solo and co-op mode. Explore new locations and face fearsome, shield-bearing skeleton enemies demanding a fresh offensive strategy.
Against these servants of Hell, players can wield two new weapons. Pierce foes from afar with Hellraid’s first-ever ranged weapon, Corrupted Justice—an ornate and powerful bow. Up close, crush skulls with Bonecruncher, a heavy, formidable Two-Handed Hammer.
Story Mode joins Hellraid’s pre-existing Raid Mode, which remains accessible after completing the new narrative prologue.
Today’s content drop overhauls Hellraid’s lighting system and adds environmental sounds which dramatically enhance the otherworldly tone and atmosphere. The update further improves in-game animations, minimap functionality, inventory management, and more. Full patch notes can be found on Steam.
Dying Light: Hellraid is an entirely new game mode for Dying Light based on Techland’s currently-on-hold first-person fantasy slasher Hellraid. It is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One as a discrete DLC or as part of Dying Light: Platinum Edition, which includes all four major DLCs and seventeen skin bundles for the award-winning, critically acclaimed game.
