By - | Views: 11,885

Love kicking ass and destroying Zombies? Check out the latest update to the excellent open-world parkour action in Dying Light with a new Left 4 Dead crossover event.

The special experience is live now until October 29 18:00, which will see you battle the Viral Rush event which is meant to emulate the hordes that appear in Left 4 Dead. To make it a bit more interesting and unique Techland added in a "new type of shotgun ammo that gives the infected a taste of fire and brimstone". If you don't like it, you can turn off the special events like this in the menu.

Additionally you can claim the L4D2 Bill & Gnome Chompski Pack free DLC here which enables you to have Bill from Left 4 Dead as your skin along with the amusing Gnome Chompski weapon.

Dying Light is also 66% off right now on Humble Store and Steam.

Quoting: undeadbydawnUnfortunately this special even has cranked up the difficulty of DL considerably, with waves of fast zombies spawning every minute or so. This makes it not really worth playing for me as while it isn't 'impossible' to carry on the single player campaign, it is a massive pain to make any progress.
This is a damned shame as I was planning to play this game *a lot* over this week.
For regular play, Dying Light is superb and absolutely worth the money

You can disable the event in the settings: Options -> Online -> Community Event Participation

Yeah, I figured this out immediately after posting this comment, which I then deleted.
I now have Community Events off, at least for this one - cos that was harsh

Thanks. I played again yesterday, i was lvl 2 and couldnt get to do anything whatsoever because there was always a huge crowd of zombies running behind me. It was not fun

At the beginning the game is meant to be played more like ground is lava mentality anyway. Though in the event almost all zombies are virals, so there's no peace on the roofs for long. On top of that stamina at the beginning is limited, so running away is not easy. When you have completed the game, you have a grappling hook, unlimited stamina and a shotgun.

During the event shotgun ammo even lights zombies on fire and visiting safe houses fills up ammo. Though even shotgun doesn't help if you get yourself surrounded...

I did played this game before. But recently i started a new game and it was becoming pretty boring to constantly having to run and not being able to explore. Hell, 5 seconds after leaving a safe house i was already overwhelmed by zombies
