Techland today unveiled details of its The Outstanding Super-Crane event – the latest community challenge for Dying Light– starting October 26th, 12pm PDT (8pm BST) and ending on November 1st at 11:30pm PDT (7:30am BST).
The Super-Crane event, which is happening in tandem with the launch of Content Drop #1, encourages players to unleash their spider-like skills because nothing says Halloween quite like spiders. For this limited period, the grappling hook will allow players to swing between buildings without the handicap of a cooldown period, increase the grappling range, and pull enemies in for easier finishers. Basically turning your character into Spider-Man.
During Halloween, the community has been given the challenge of attaining a global kill target of 10,000,000 enemies – with fall damage – to win a Bounty Skin Pack, with the added individual player incentive of catching 5,000 enemies using the grappling hook for a Gold Tier weapon.
And for gamers wanting to get involved with the carnage for the first time, there are Steam and Gemly sales of up to 60% off. There will also be sales for the console version of the game. Additionally, the players can unlock a free new set of items at Gemly.com — the Halloween-themed The Nightmare Pack contains an exclusive shotgun skin – Rusty Spine, a new poison weapon – the Candycutter sickle, and a third item that will be unveiled this Monday.
Players are encouraged to share their best Super-Crane actions & moves on the Dying Light and Gemly social media channels. A special community video will be made from the best ones.
