Techland has announced new difficulty level for Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition dubbed Nightmare Mode.

The new difficulty level restricts overpowered Easter Egg weapons, introduces XP penalties for dying, and “ramps up” the difficulty of enemies, and more.

Playing Nightmare Mode in co-op will earn players XP faster and increases their chance of finding gold tier weapons, so that’s a plus.

“We’ve designed the Nightmare Mode for those seeking a really challenging and immersive experience,” said producer Tymon Smektala. “Nightmare Mode takes everything that was brutal in our Hard Mode and twists it even more.

“We’re trying to bring the Dying Light experience closer and closer to the feeling of a real apocalypse survival experience where every move you make can really determine if you live or die.”

Nightmare Mode will be a part of Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition which launches February 9, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in boxed and digital format.

Players who already have the base version of the game will be able to buy the expansion Dying Light: The Following individually as downloadable content.
