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:

A terrible calamity has befallen the city of Harran! Aside from being overrun by zombies, obviously. The Global Relief Effort has announced that a shipment of Antizin, the drug that temporarily suppresses the symptoms of the Harran Virus, has been "exposed to a foreign contaminant," and Dying Light players may find themselves suffering from some rather odd side-effects for a period lasting up to 24 hours.

Do you find yourself suddenly gripped by an uncontrollable urge to punch things? Does that punching lead to unexpected dismemberment, skull-splosions, or the launching of adult-sized undead into near-Earth orbit? Do NFL placekickers suddenly seem to you like a bunch of overpaid, under-skilled pencil-necks? If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, then you may have ingested tainted Antizin. But fear not! The effects aren't permanent; in fact, they'll almost certainly come to a very sudden end with the passing of April 1.

April 1, AKA April Fool's Day, is notorious as the day in which game studios try to prank their fans with fake (and, let's be honest, not-always-funny) announcements and events. It's a confusing and sometimes downright unpleasant day for people in my line of work, and I generally do my best to ignore it as much as I possibly can. But this one is actually pretty good. Not as obsessively detailed as whatever Blizzard will come up with, no doubt, but incorporating the idea into the game like this is a nice touch. If you're a Dying Light player looking for something new to do, fill your overpowered boots tomorrow.
