Dying Light box copies delayed, Be the Zombie mode free

Dying Light’s Be the Zombie mode will now be made available to all players for free, Techland has announced.

The mode, which allows a player to control certain zombies in the game and attack others online, was originally a pre-order-only bonus.

However, Techland has announced that physical copies of Dying Light have been delayed a month in regions outside of North America, and so by way of apology, it will gift the mode to everyone for free.

Rock Band DLC is back from the dead

Harmonix is releasing new DLC for Rock Band 3, 21 months after it ceased production on new content for the game.

Three songs are coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 21: "R U Mine?" from the Arctic Monkey's 2013 release AM, "Shepherd Of Fire" from Avenged Sevenfold's 2013 album Hail to the King, and "Something from Nothing," the lead single off the recently released Foo Fighters album Sonic Highways.

Each will cost US$2, and is also compatible with Rock Band Blitz.

No reason was given for the unexpected return, and it’s not clear if more songs will follow, although the company did refer to its 21 month break as a “hiatus”.

“We've missed rocking with all of you,” it said.
