Dying Light players will get super powers for one day only

Super heroes are lucky, one small plunge into nuclear waste and they get super powers for life. Normal people are lucky to walk away with debilitating tumours. Techland’s tired of seeing poor regular Joe and Joe-ettes like us living our daily lives without super powers and so, for one day only, everyone in Dying Light is getting super strength.

And it’s all thanks to a bad batch of antivirals.

Survivors in the zombie-infested city of Harran have been staying one step ahead of the virus by injecting themselves with the Antizin formula. Batches of the preventative drug are being air-dropped into the city daily by the Global Relief Effort.

Unfortunately, the April 1st batch has been contaminated and, while still protecting the subject from the zombie plague, it does have a side-effect. Namely, super strength.

You can see the effects of the contaminated drug in this Public Service Announcement:

“All undelivered Antizin crates have been destroyed, and we would like to assure the survivors that untainted drops will resume as of April 2nd,” Hudson Jenkins, spokesman for the GRE stated in a press release. “We urge all the survivors to use extreme care when exhibiting symptoms of the contaminated Antizin injections.”

Jenkins wouldn’t be drawn on rumours that the GRE was being paid by pharmaceutical companies to test military toxins on Harran’s survivors.

So, it looks like we can be heroes, for just one day:
