Dying Light: The Following’s Vehicular Zombicide

Roadkill.

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.

This isn’t me being lazy, look at the kind of useless fluff I’ve been given to work with here:

“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.”

That’s the expansion’s producer, Tymon Smektala, saying not a dang thing. Thanks, pal. “Game-changer” said earnestly, good grief!

The expansion is included with the DLC Season Pass but they don’t say how much it’ll cost without it, nor say when it’ll arrive. You can see a bit more towards the end of this video from last week, before Techland formally announced The Following:

    It seems like this season pass has turned into a decent investment. I’ll have to pick it up once zombie bumper cars is confirmed awesome.

    “That’s the expansion’s producer, Tymon Smektala, saying not a dang thing” For a marketing guy he has a fitting name, cause Smektala in Swedish means Caress (smek) Speak (tala), i.e. caressing someone’s mind/ears by speaking. Unfortunately, Alice seems immune to his charms.

    Wait, so they took a game where the main gimmick is parkour… and then set it in a field?

    That’s not true, the main gimmick is that it almost-but-not-quite has Dark Messiah’s melee combat.

      I mean, the article states so but googling up “Dying light season pass” only shows 3 DLCs: Cuisine & Cargo; Ultimate Survivor Bundle; The Bozak Horde
