Nightmare Row is written by Raymond Benson, author of over 30 titles, including the official follow-up James Bond novels commissioned by the Ian Fleming Estate.

The novel follows Mel Wyatt, an 18-year-old American athlete and her brother, both stranded in Harran as a result of the outbreak.

“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.”

Details of the release date and price are expected soon.
