Dying Light The Following

As somebody who loves a good zombie romp, I find it incredibly odd that I’ve not yet played Techland’s action horror, Dying Light. By all means, the game looks fantastic, and it’s obviously one I should’ve gotten my hands on a long time ago based on all the positive stuff I’ve heard from countless other gamers.

Thankfully, skimping on Dying Light in 2015 may have worked in my favour. There’s an enhanced edition on the way, which will come packed with all the bits of DLC content, as well as The Following – an upcoming expansion.

This expansion is perfect for those who already played the game in its heyday, and are itching for new content. The Following will include a whole new campaign, a new map to explore, and even vehicles. On top of all this, there’ll be a new nightmare mode too. It will ramp up the difficulty of Dying Light significantly.

Interested in suffering? Here’s a sneak peak of what nightmare mode entails (via Game Informer):

Behold the most challenging and cruel face of Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition. In this new difficulty level called Nightmare Mode, we introduce XP penalties for dying, ramp up enemy strength, restrict overpowered Easter Egg weapons, and much more

Nightmare mode will also provide longer nights and less stamina. It’s not all doom and gloom though. If you’re brave enough to face the new difficulty, you’ll be rewarded with more XP points. Playing with friends will offer an additional XP bonus too; 10% extra per player, up to a total of 30%. On top of all this, golden weapons will also be more abundant.

The Following will be out on February 9th. The enhanced edition will be out on the same day, for those like me who have yet to experience Dying Light.

Are you excited? Are you looking forward to all the new content, and dying over and over again in the new nightmare mode? I’m just excited to get my hands on the damn game itself!

    How is Dying Light as a SP? Can it be done?

      Single player? Probably one of the best zombie games I’ve ever played.

        Oh. Good.

        Have to give it a go some time.

          It really opens up once you get the grappling hook. there a power station in the game. I swear I spent hours trolling zombies there.

      • You still playing it? I want to get this 🙂

        • Hammersteyn

          Traded it last year March I think. Gaming is expensive 🙁

          • I’ve just sold my copy now and pre-ordered The Following Enhanced ed. I loved this game so hard I didnt even think twice about the pre-order.
            As for the SP question, You can play 95% of the game offline. The only MP you need is for trophies/achievements regarding co-op or be the zombie mode.

  • I may just get this. A certain Nana has been begging me to.

    I actuality bought this again in order to get the enhanced version. The developers said those who bought it at launch would be able to download the enhanced version for free. Luckily, the PS4 has it in my game library.
