Dying Light’s getting a full expansion in The Following

1 min read


Dying Light is one of my favourite games from this year. Released a few months later than originally scheduled, it was one of the year’s first major releases. Yes, it was yet another zombie apocalypse, but it was superbly executed. Developer Techland learned from its mistakes with Dead Island, finally giving us the game that that hot mess should have been.

Making Dying Light even better is the fantastic post-release support. Techland has given us smaller bits of DLC, fun challenges and bits of silly mayhem. And now there’s a full expansion. As they teased earlier, there’s a new bit of DLC coming that adds more story, a bigger map, and driveable vehicles.

It’s called The Following – and according to Techland, the new map is bigger than all previous Dying Light maps combined. That’s big.

“For Dying Light: The Following we’re adding a number of bold game-changers to create one massive expansion,” says producer Tymon Smektala. “Something big that will give the game a brand-new flavor. The new map alone is the same size as all the previous maps from Dying Light combined, so there is a lot we’re packing in here.”

“We also kept a close eye on player feedback to help tailor what we’ve created here. Hopefully people will see that this new expansion is first and foremost, for the fans.”

The expansion will be available to purchase separately, but is also included for anyone who’s bought the game’s season pass. There’s little other information, save for the fact that the expansion will be quite story-heavy (hopefully making up for the main game’s narrative, which was a bit on the lacking side).

    I was pleasantly surprised by Dying Light, this expansion will be added to my cart, definitely a must buy if it’s of this scale…

    dont forget to mention their other DLC which totally doesnt make the season pass worth it. i mean, who wants to pay 20$ for a hat pack, a challenge map and a single new map expansion, which by the looks of it, isnt big enough to warrant cars?
    do we even want cars in a parkour based game?

    seasons passes have really dropped the ball in recent games.
    borderlands 2 season pass was amazing, same as one or two other games. getting so much for so little.
    but recently, batmans 40$ waste of time, CoDs… call of dutyish pass and battlefields premium, just getting less and less for more and more money…
    even borderlands dropped the ball with TPS. 30$ for “4 story based DLC” which turned out to be one story DLC, 2 new characters and a challeng map…
    bullshit man…

      Borderlands 2 Is definitely how you do a season pass for sure:)

      New Batman was a huuuge disappointment when it came to season pass they said adding new story content I was excited then we get like an hour of gameplay with batgirl rubbish….oh and the harley quinn story pack took me maybe 15 minutes to finish even if that long!

        harley quinn and red hood were pre-order bonuses aswell…
        and dont forget about the DLC for origins, 30$ for some challenge map, some skins and an underwhelming story dlc…
        and people were surprised that the batgirl DLC wasnt amazing? i laughed.
