Dying Light Gains Some New Content

Two+ year old game receives new content, 10 more planned over the next year.

We’ve been playing Dying Light: The Following for a number of months, on and off, after a group of four of us formed by accident. Frustrations with the matchmaking and other technical issues aside, we’ve all had a blast with it.

After around 30 hours of play, we just don’t feel like we’re even close to being finished with this game. Almost 3 years on, it seems around 500k other players aren’t finished either, according to Techland; this is the number of players still active every week, to this day.

Good news then, as Techland have released the first (labelled #0) of what will now be 11 content releases in total, over the next 12 months. They’re calling this 10-in-12.

On the surface, this looks like a reskin of an existing enemy and weapon, with the usual complaints in the comments on Steam. Techland have made it clear this batch of content is “for the fans” and will be free throughout, which I applaud, so I don’t see what there is to complain about myself.

Maybe we’ll get extra lucky and this will take us through to Dying Light 2?
