If you couldn’t get enough zombies in your daily media consumption routine, then take a gander at Techland’s Nightmare Row, a novel tie-in to the upcoming zombie-themed survival horror Dying Light that provides all the grisly details of the game’s horrific apocalypse scenario. In the novel, penned by author Raymond Benson, we follow the story of a young athlete named Mel Wyatt who becomes trapped in the center of the zombie outbreak after attending an athletics festival two weeks before. Of course, this means Mel must use her wits and tenacity to survive the marauding undead, or end up as lunch.
“Writing the origin story for DYING LIGHT was an exciting adventure for me,” says Benson. “I’d always wanted to try my hand at a zombie-genre tale and this gave me the perfect opportunity. The folks at Techland created a rich and intriguingly bleak setting for the game, so that gave me a wonderful and creepy world in which to play around. All fans of zombie fiction, gamers and readers alike, are in for a real treat.”
Dying Light is a survival horror game that boasts a unique day and night cycle in which gameplay changes drastically with the rising and setting of the sun. While you may be able to slay a zombie during the day, new dangers arise in the night that turn the tables and force you to run for your life. But don’t take our word for it— you can experience all of this when Dying Light arrives on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 27th.
