The first event of Dying Light 2's The Frightening season is here, and it's a crossover with celebrated spooky tabletop property Vampire: The Masquerade.
As promised in September's roadmap, this crossover kicks off spooky season for the zombie sandbox game starting from today, bringing content related to the Vampire universe.
First up, you're now more likely to dismember enemies and deal more damage if you're fighting at night, in keeping with the vampiric theme of the crossover.
As you explore Villedor, you'll also find new vials of blood based on the Brujah, Tremere, and Banu Haqim clans, and they'll grant temporary Combat, Traversal, and Survival powers.
Completing Bounties and Challenges at silver level or above will also contribute towards the Dying Light 2 Vampire: The Masquerade crossover event's goals.
If you complete one of these goals, you'll get three vials of blood, while completing five gets you a blueprint for the Bloodbane Blade, as well as the weapon itself.
Completing eleven goals nets you the Banu Haqim outfit, and if players cumulatively complete 775,000 Bounties or Challenges during this event, they also stand to gain a Banu Haqim Charm and a new paraglider skin.
This isn't the first time Dying Light 2 has crossed over with another game; the zombie open-world parkour game also saw the world of Payday 2 invade its undead shores back in summer.
The Vampire: The Masquerade crossover is just the first of several events Dying Light 2 has planned for The Frightening.
You can also look forward to a For Honor crossover in November, as well as the game's winter celebrations in December and a second anniversary event, which will likely land in February next year.
While you wait, Dying Light 2 is available right now on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox platforms. The Vampire crossover event begins today and ends on November 2nd.
If you're waiting for the next major video game entry in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, you'll be pleased to know Bloodlines 2 appears to be back in active development under the watchful eye of The Chinese Room.
