In the era of smart homes, smart heating, heart rate monitoring, and the possibility to connect almost anything to the internet; video game developer Techland made an even bolder move and created a never before seen experiment in the form of a Twitter campaign that will clear the fog from the map of the upcoming Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition.
This is how the event is described by Michał Napora, the game’s Community Manager:
“The idea came from the current trend of connecting anything and everything to the internet. We thought why not let anyone with a Twitter handle use the hashtag #TweetForSpeed to make a real difference in the lives of all Dying Light fans. Every tweet with this hashtag will make our specially modified slot car go around on its
track and by doing so, it reveals more parts from the new map of the upcoming Dying Light: The Following ahead of its release. The further the car goes, the more will be revealed of the map of the already highly anticipated Dying Light: The Following for the both the fans of the game and newcomers alike.”
As this is an urgent appeal and there are a lot of Dying Light fans in need, we would like to urge you to go crazy with the tweets and even if you just feel like sending a tweet to make a little car go around its track, follow and tweet us @DyingLightGame with the hashtag #TweetForSpeed and watch the action unfold on our live Twitch broadcast at http://www.twitch.tv/techland.
Dying Light: The Following will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC from February 9, 2016.
