Dying Light - Hellraid, the much unloved expansion to the zombie-slasher that puts you into dungeons fighting skeletons has received a huge upgrade. Maybe now people won't hate it so much?

What was originally going to be its own game that was canned, Techland have mostly moved onto Dying Light 2 development but it seems they still have a team going on the original. This new upgrade for the Hellraid DLC adds in quite a lot by the sounds of it, with more to come that will be revealed and added into Hellraid over time. Check out the trailer below:

The plot, they say, will be gradually revealed so they're doing it in an episodic format. Could be fun, it's always had promise but was clearly released under-baked. Maybe in a few weeks it might finally live up to the promise it had initially.

Here's the other trailer:

Here's what's new:

  • We’ve added story mode to Hellraid
  • Now players can choose between story mode and raid mode upon entering Hellraid
  • We’ve introduced a new Hellraid rank: Vanquisher
  • We’ve added new sounds and animations
  • Level’s contours now appear on the minimap
  • We’ve added new weapons—a bow (in story mode) and a two-handed hammer, and a stamina potion
  • Players will now encounter a new enemy—a skeleton with a large shield
  • Players no longer need to stash and retrieve their equipment upon entering and leaving Hellraid
  • Balance and visual changes
  • Minor tweaks and bug fixes

You can buy Dying Light on Humble Store and Steam.

That helmet with these shoulders and the breast plate... It hurts.

Yes I know it's fantasy, but pseudo-16th century shoulders and a pseudo-15th century breastplate might work, but NEVER with a pseudo-13th century helmet. And the short-sleeved chain-mail is also as stupid as it gets.

The "sword" is also a lot of eye-damage.

He does kinda look like he picked up his gear at a garage sale, doesn't he?

When I look at Hellraid I can only see Dying Light without all the delightful gobbets and blood and parkour. It just looks so underwhelming ... like an empty piñata: all cardboard, no candy.

Until you play it with some friends and crank the difficulty up

I probably spent more time on Hellraid than on the main campaign

Found lying around the dungeon and/or crafted from some scrap metal, probably.
