Techland teased that there would be a special announcement for Dying Light at Gamescom next week – but they’ve buckled and unveiled the surprise early – a ‘feature-heavy’ expansion called The Following, which includes some vehicles for you to race around and cause some zombie roadkill in.
The story-based expansion will be made available for free to season pass holders, and also sold separately. The full unveiling will come shortly after Gamescom, during which a demo will be shown behind closed doors.
For Dying Light: The Following we’re adding a number of bold game-changers to create one massive expansion. 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.
