Dying Light is set to release on January 30th, and Techland has announced that there will be bonus content for those who pre-order on Steam. If you pre-order anytime before release you will be able to access the multiplayer DLC mode Be the Zombie and a Steam-exclusive weapon called Punk Queen. This mode is a competitive mode where one player can become one of the enemies and try and take out others. While I still am not always crazy about the sheer amount of pre-order content and DLC out there, if this mode has enough to do it could be worth grabbing. Additional details below.

Starting today, gamers can pre-purchase Dying Light – Techland’s much anticipated action survival game – on Steam. What is more, these pre-purchases come with exciting free additional content: multiplayer DLC mode Be the Zombie and Steam-exclusive weapon called Punk Queen.

Be the Zombie is a competitive asymmetric multiplayer mode that lets you invade other players’ games as the Night Hunter – an ultimate zombie with a unique set of deadly skills. By playing as the Night Hunter, you turn into a fast, agile and dangerous predator, whose objective is to hunt down human survivors.

Punk Queen is a powerful crowbar with every possible upgrade on board: batteries and wires for electrical damage, lighters for burning damage, acid containers, spikes, razors, and more. It’s the ultimate tool of destruction that alternates between special effects with each blow. Players who pre-purchase Dying Light on Steam will receive an exclusive blueprint enabling them to craft the weapon in the game.

Dying Light will be released in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia.
