This news killed all of the no hype I've had for this game. At first it seemed like another bluh zombie game that would be somewhat passable, but locking a basic mode, that seems just like a different version of L4D's versus mode, as a pre-order bonus is BS.
I'm sick of basic gameplay modes being locked behind a pre-order/pay wall

I have to agree with you sadly this normal these days ans its just going to get worse in the future. This will not change anytime soon since they want the game picked up new not used, so they are using stuff like that to get people to buy it new and when it first comes out. Last game I pre-ordered came with like 8 dlc that was all pre-order dlc by the time it was released, then released a month later for 2-3 dollars each.

I'm tired of these pre-order bonuses.
It's not like anyone's paying more for the game to pre-order it, so why should they get rewarded for reserving a copy? Especially when it's something like this.
Why wouldn't you want to play a zombie in a zombie game? It's like AvP without the option to play as an Alien or a Predator.

Is Night Hunter the exclusive or is the entire mode what is exclusive? I can live with just a class being a pre-order exclusive but an entire mode is a little too far.

Fragment of Chaos The official announcement definitely makes it sound like the mode itself is exclusive, and other outlets (such as GameSpot, Shacknews, etc.) seem to have gotten the same message.

Definitely odd. I mean, I would be less surprised if it was free for pre-ordering, but still released as paid content for everyone else. This is just... weird.

P.S. I've updated it with a bit about the pre-order bonus being North America only atm.

This would disappoint me greatly....


IF I gave a damn about Multiplayer.

Another pre-order bonus? Woah, this must be the new trend that's going around.

I kind of wish this mode wasn't pre-order and would be open to everyone on Multiplayer, it just doesn't seem right that a certain few who get this game ahead of time get this new mode, and some are completely left out. Exclusive content like maps I can understand, but a whole game mode seems a little farfetch'd.

I will note though I like the twist on the zombie graphics, always interesting seeing another company's take on what a zombie looks like.

This is... Quite disappointing. I planned on pre-ordering anyways, but why alienate a large portion of the players? If the game's single-player didn't look so promising, this probably would've killed my hope for this game. Dying Light? More like Dying Hope! *Laugh Track*

I hate to admit it but the biggest problem is they go mostly based off pre-order sales, first week sales and new game sales not used games sales. So they will continue to do this pre-order dlc stuff like this and it will only get worse in the future honestly.
