Dying Light DLC Season Pass’s Price Is… Going Up $10?

I don’t know anything about business but I know that if you’re not disrupting, you’re bankrupting. This isn’t 2014, grandma. Here in 2015, we’ve disrupted the economic paradigm with an innovative shareconomy. Just the other day, I used the app Walk A Mile to rent my shoes to someone who wanted a smarter pair for a business lunch.

So yeah, you might be used to DLC and DLC season passes becoming cheaper over time, but pssh! We can disrupt that. Get this: the Dying Light [official site] DLC season pass’s price is about to go up from $20 to $30. Its makers say the upcoming expansion included with it, The Following, has grown big enough to warrant a higher price.

Dying Light: The Following Out Early Next Year

As winter draws nearer, so too does darker nights and frosty pavements. I like running, you see, and it’s at this time of year I switch from jogs around my local park to the treadmill at the gym. Which is way more boring. I often think: what would make this run more exciting? And the answer is invariably zombies. Zombies make things like aimless running more exciting. That and parkour – a fact Dying Light [official site] understands. The Following, the game’s first major expansion, wants to throw a zombie-bashing buggy into the mix. It’s also decided it will arrive early next year, according to its latest trailer. Have a look, see.

Better Late Than Never: Dying Light Demo Released

Have you played Dying Light [official site]? Techland’s follow-up to Dead Island is pretty good fun, says our Adam. You run and jump and parkour around an open world, killing zombies with guns and fancy knives. If that’s your sort of bag, hey, you might fancy playing its demo, which has finally launched on Steam – eight months after the game’s initial release.

If you have played Dying Light, you might fancy watching 15 minutes of gameplay from its upcoming expansion The Following, which adds a new area and vehicles.

Dying Light – The Following Adds An Enormous New Map And Customisable Vehicles

As the only member of RPS who recognises the brilliance of Dying Light [official site], I’m probably the only person here who is delighted by the reveal of a huge, meaty expansion. A new map as big as the one in the original, customisably buggies to drive around in and rural areas to sit alongside the urban environment of the base game. I had a very quick play with some of the new weapons at Gamescom – picking people of silently with a crossbow and mowing zombies down with an assault rifle – and took the vehicle for a spin. It’ll be fully customisable, as well as providing a new skilltree to work through. Possibilities include blades on the wheels, a flamethrower on the roof or UV lights on the side panels. Video below.

Dying Light: The Following’s Vehicular Zombicide


An expansion named The Following is coming to Dying Light [official site], but developers Techland are being big teasy-teases. You’ll get to mow down zombies in a dinky little dune buggy across a big new map, and that’s about all they’ve said. Though, really, what more would you want them to say? Next week during the big Gamescom show they’ll reveal more, but I imagine it’ll boring details like a guff story you won’t care about. Maybe this terse explanation is the best it’ll sound until you get to play yourself. New map, vehicles, vehicular homicide – dandy.

Loudspeaker: Dying Light’s Bozak Horde Out May 26th

The first DLC expansion for Dying Light [official site] has now been announced, detailed and dated. It’s called The Bozak Horde and, judging from the teaser trailer below it has a touch of Saw about it, as you’re challenged to complete some sicko’s elaborate game to stay alive. We’re going layers deep into gameception with this one. Succeed and you’ll win a super-stealthy composite bow with magic lightning and explosive arrows.

Zombify Your Life: Dying Light Mod Tools Released

Mod me good.

Wonderful things, mods. Without them, we’d have far fewer readme files in the world. Today Dying Light [official site] joined in on the mod fun with the release of its official mod tools, which let folks create levels, script quests, and whatnot. You too could make a map of your office and populate it with lookalikes of your office who tell you how cool and ruggedly good-looking you are. But please do remember to write a readme explaining that.

Or, for non-modders, good news: I see a load of new Dying Light things to play coming your way.

Mod-Me-Defs: Dying Light Mod Tools Coming

Johnny Protagonist engages in the exciting new sport of Xtreme Modding.

Techland, makers of Dying Light [official site], have announced they plan to release official mod tools for the free-running zombie ‘em up. Developers actively encouraging mods rather than simply tolerating them is grand in this day and age, when official support in blockbusters is rarer than it once was, and especially after the kerfuffle surrounding Dying Light mods over the past fortnight (I’ll explain in a bit). They haven’t said yet quite what the tools will support or when they’ll arrive, only that they’ll be “extensive”. Good-o!

Mod-Me-Do: Dying Light Mod Block & Takedowns Tackled

The zombie represents something and the hand is a mod or look I don't know whatever.

The Dying Light [official site] mod unpleasantness of the past week has been cleared up, and was indeed double whammy of overzealous protection. Developers Techland are doing something about the cheat protection that also blocked legitimate mods, while the Entertainment Software Assocation have nonapologised for copyright takedown notices issue in its name against sites hosting mod downloads. Huzzah! They don’t hate mods, they simply didn’t think things through.

Mod-Me-Don’t: Dying Light Mod Blocks And Takedowns

So, the pipe represents mods, yeah, which makes the zombie...

Ooh, mods! Lovely, lovely mods. But while mods can add all sorts of lovely new things to games, a game letting folks fiddle its files might also make it vulnerable to cheaty cheats. The difference between a rad dinocop skin and a spiked model is artistic intent. Dying Light [official site] is being a bit overzealous in its attempts to block the bad, though.

The latest update’s changelog includes “blocked cheating by changing game’s data files”, which also blocks things like editing weapons. Some modders have even had mods they uploaded to public file hosts removed through copyright protection laws.
