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.
