Undead Undead Undead! Dying Light: Enhanced Edition

Deader and fancier than ever

For a while, earlier this year, Adam would come back from his lunch break with suspicious rips in his clothes, dust and dirt on his knees, and blood soaking him from head to toe. No matter how much he insisted he'd simply smoked a particularly dangerous cigarette, we knew: he was on the parkour-a-zomb-o-kills. Adam liked Dying Light [official site], I'm trying to say. He liked the video game. He thought it was good.

Hey, Adam, good news: it's getting even fancier in an Enhanced Edition, coming as a free update in February. Its expansion, The Following, has a release date now too.

Here's what developers Techland say to expect from the Enhanced Edition:

  • Legend System
  • Nightmare Difficulty
  • Bounties System
  • New Parkour Moves
  • New Enemy Attacks & Behaviors
  • #DrinkForDLC Content
  • New NPC Models
  • Enhanced Facial Expressions
  • Improved Human Enemy AI
  • Improved Volatile AI
  • Greater Firearm Variety
  • HUD and Video Filter Customizations
  • Audio Upgrades
  • Gameplay Quality Improvements
  • Overall Game Look and Feel Improvements

You can see wee bits of a few of those in this trailer:

The Enhanced Edition will arrive as a downloadable update on February 9th, launching alongside Dying Light's expansion The Following and the newly-announced Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition. That's a new retail release which will include the base game in Enhanced form and the DLC season pass - its 'Game of the Year Edition', basically.

Things have got a bit confusing around Dying Light lately, what with Techland raising prices on the season pass and The Following (it grew big enough to cost more, they say). To help clear this up, they've drawn up a diagram to explain who can get exactly what and how.

And hey, here's a new gameplay vid showing eleven minutes of The Following:
