Techland, the developer for the hit first-person zombie survival game Dying Light, announced today that the game will undergo some changes for 24 hours in celebration of April Fool’s Day. In addition, Techland released a new public service announcement from the Global Relief Effort you can check out in the player below.
The PSA urges survivors to use extreme caution when using Antizin injections tomorrow. The latest batch has been exposed to a foreign contaminant. It is a non-toxic contaminant, but it will still cause some odd side-effects for April Fool’s Day, which are featured in the video below.
In a mock statement from in-game spokesman from the GRE, Hudson Jenkins: “All undelivered Antizin crates have been destroyed, and we would like to assure the survivors that untainted drops will resume as of April 2nd. We urge all the survivors to use extreme care when exhibiting symptoms of the contaminated Antizin injections.”
It appears that for April Fool’s Day, Techland is making the melee attacks even more powerful than ever before. Case in point, you can now dropkick zombies from the top of a building to the length of like an entire city street. You can punch and kill a zombie in one hit, or use one big jab to send a zombie sailing across a considerable distance. Unfortunately, these “side effects” will only last for 24 hours.
