Today, Techland announced the final touches are being put on a novel based on the upcoming game, Dying Light. Titled Dying Light: Nightmare Row, the novel will be a prequel to the events depicted in the game, taking the reader to the days before the outbreak that ruined the city of Harran. Dying Light: Nightmare Row is written by Ramond Benson. He is an author of over thirty published titles, including the official follow-up James Bond novels.

“Writing the origin story for DYING LIGHT was an exciting adventure for me,” says Benson. “I’d always wanted to try my hand at a zombie-genre tale and this gave me the perfect opportunity. The folks at Techland created a rich and intriguingly bleak setting for the game, so that gave me a wonderful and creepy world in which to play around.  All fans of zombie fiction, gamers and readers alike, are in for a real treat.”

Dying Light: Nightmare Row tells the terrifying story of Mel Wyatt, an 18-year old American athlete who participated in the Harran 2015 Global Athletic Games two weeks earlier. He is one of many Americans who is stranded in Harran. Mel has been surviving in a small hotel room with her little brother Paul. Their parents were killed on the first day of infected attack in the stadium. There will be more details in the future in regards to the price and the release date soon. Dying Light will be on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on January 27th.
