Techland and GAME announce bizarre $10m Dying Light special edition

UK retailer GAME has partnered with developer Techland to deliver a frankly ridiculous special edition of open-world zombie game Dying Light: The Following, at the cost of 10 million dollars.

The "Spotlight Edition" includes a supporting role in "Dying Light: The Movie," with parkour and stunt training, an off-road driving course (after which you can keep the car), an on-set trailer, premiere tickets and a first-class screening tour, a zombie make-up session, acting lessons from Roger Craig Smith (the voice of Chris Redfield, Ezio Auditore, and Sonic the Hedgehog), and – somehow – the ability to "become the voice of [protagonist] Kyle Crane" in a special edition of Dying Light.

Techland will even throw in a few copies of the game as well.

Previously, a $250,000 Dying Light package had included a real-life zombie shelter.

Though we haven't done the math, there is no way the contents add up to a $10 million value – even with a mighty four copies of the game.

Destiny expansion coming this year; full sequel 2017

Bungie plans at least two more significant content updates for Destiny before releasing a full sequel in 2017.

Announced in Activision's earnings statement and clarified in a community blog post, the first update is slated for the Northern Hemisphere Spring, and will feature "a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players."

After that, a "large expansion" is due later in 2016, and a full sequel in 2017.

Titanfall 2 will have single player campaign, zero player TV series

The sequel to Respawn's online shooter Titanfall will include a single-player campaign, says the game's community manager Jesse Stern.

Speaking with Forbes, Stern also outlined the studio's intention to produce a television series alongside the new game, in association with The Hunger Games studio Lionsgate.

Stern said that although Respawn lacked the resources to create a campaign for the first game, its sequel will include one that will explain "here's who you are, here's where you are, and who's around you."
