Techland introduces the much-anticipated Nightmare Mode to Dying Light 2 Stay Human. The new, fan-requested feature is aimed at players who want to get completely immersed in the game.

Today, we’re introducing the Nightmare Mode Update for Dying Light 2 Stay Human, which adds the hardest and most immersive difficulty yet and an array of additional elements. The main feature has been widely requested by the community, and it invites the players to rely on tactics and strategic management of resources in order to survive in the post-apocalyptic world.

“Nightmare Mode will provide the most challenging experience in the world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human. It requires total concentration and extreme caution on the part of the player and, in turn, delivers the highest level of immersion yet.” — Tymon Smektała, Dying Light Franchise Director

The new difficulty introduces changes to stamina management, called the Tactical Stamina system, limited HUD options for better immersion, and a flickering flashlight that goes out when used for too long. These and other additions serve to heighten the atmosphere of horror and refresh the experience for even the most discerning players. Those who manage to complete the game on this highest difficulty will be rewarded with the memorable Waltz Outfit.

The Nightmare Mode Update adds more features than just the new difficulty – such as general adjustments to the Infected and night experience. What is more, co-op players will be glad to hear they will now be able to take on the Community Maps with up to three friends. Archers will get reworked power shot mechanics. And personalization connoisseurs will have the opportunity to change the appearance of the Grappling Hook – don’t miss the free skin available on Pilgrim Outpost!
