Warner Bros has announed that pre-ordering Dying Light in North America will give players access to the 'Be the Zombie' mode, and reserving the game early is the only way to be able to play the PvP mode at launch. You play as a fast and agile zombie with a rare mutation that gives it special skills it puts to use defending zombie Hives from humans.

Be the Zombie is Dying Light's only PvP mode, and enables you to play as a night hunter, staking human prey through the darkness with superhuman speed, charge and distance attacks, and a tendril that enables you to grapple your way around the game's environments.

Playing as a night hunter grants experience points that feed into developing the character's skill tree, and unlocking other rewards and perks. You can pre-order Dying Light in North America now to get the Be a Zombie mode at launch. Dying Light is out for Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014. You'll find some new screens below.

This look so cool and I hopeful it is better then Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide. I hope Techland making sure this game going be epic or great for Warner Bros. Games. Techland didn't gave Deep Silver any love since Dead Island series is medicore. Let hope this new zombie IP game better and better.

Haven't been following this game but it looks stunning. Assuming it has some great co-op options and doesn't lean heavily on Dead Island's boring side quests I will probably check it out.

Hello Warner Bros and other companies. Maybe you don't realise it, but there's more than only North America. Other parts of the world also have people living. They also appreciate certain bonuses and extra content!

I don't think its that wise to give away a competitive MP mode to only preorders in one country. How populated will this mode be then? Not that much I guess.

Another zombie game is welcome. Love nothing more than smashing zombie faces in. Along with Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 at launch, I'll have plenty to be getting on with.

I don't care if only one place gets preorder dlc. It's nothing special anyway.
Plus there have been plenty of other one Europe gets exclusive stuff too but we conveniently forget that and have a bitch when America gets an exclusive.
It's the Australians I feel sorry for. Have they ever had an exclusive?

I fucking hate this. DON'T LOCK PARTS OF YOUR GAME FOR A PRE-ORDER BONUS!!! It's worse than an online pass.

I was not bitching at North America. I was bitching at companies that seem to forget that the world is a larger place and that people in other regions also appreciate extra content. So that's not only Europe, nor Australia, but the rest of the globe as well.

Great. VS mode ala L4D. So much for this game. Patches and updates (thanks to VS players crying and bitching) killed L4D, and no doubt it will kill this game too. :(

For a second there, I though you showed screens from said game mode.. in any case, I think it would be cooler if you could actually invade other players game as zombie a la L4D, but I guess better something than nothing...

@7 Other developers do this all the time by running UK only giveaways (i.e. Splinter Cell Blacklist MSP giveaway was the most recent). No need to get your panties all in a bunch as this will probably be available to everyone for free at some point after launch.
