Techland has revealed a new difficulty for their upcoming survival horror game Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition. 

The new difficulty is called Nightmare Mode and challenges players by restricting weapons, increasing enemy difficulty, giving XP penalties for dying and more. While you may lose some XP playing Nightmare Mode you can earn XP faster when you play co-op with a friend. Game producer Tymon Smektala said,


“We’ve designed the Nightmare Mode for those seeking a really challenging and immersive experience. Nightmare Mode takes everything that was brutal in our Hard Mode and twists it even more.

“We’re trying to bring the Dying Light experience closer and closer to the feeling of a real apocalypse survival experience where every move you make can really determine if you live or die.”

Nightmare Mode will be included as part of Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition of the game which will be available on February 9 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Take a look at the new mode in the trailer below.
