Feature: Update Night

Has Dying Light been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. Dying Light’s zombies are spooky, groaning and flailing at me as I parkour my player character across awnings and rooftops, but in the brightness of day, they’re exposed. They’re slow — slow enough that they’ll never catch up with my sprinting hero —…

Steam Charts: Doing my duty

John has been writing these charts for just a few weeks and already he's had to book a week off in order to recover. I am made of more sterling stuff, and while he's gone it falls to me to share the details of which games sold the best last week on Steam.

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

Dying Light Gets Rocket League’s Buggy And A Ball

Usually we post about Rocket League [official site] because it's taking yet another iconic car from pop culture and turning it into DLC, but not this time. This time it's the other way around: it's the Rocket League buggy that has come to Dying Light [official site] as a free DLC. So if you ever get tired of running over zombies you can play some…

Dying Light – The Following review

The Following is an enormous expansion, adding a huge new map and all manner of vehicular carnage to Techland's open world zombie-smasher Dying Light [official site]. But does a game about urban exploration and claustrophobic limb-lopping really need to stretch its legs in the great outdoors? And how does a buggy fit into a world of parkour and pummelling? Is carkour even possible? Here's wot…

Dying Light Raises Expansion And Enhanced Edition

Today's a big day for Dying Light [official site], with three new releases coming to the open-world, zombie-slaying, parkouring FPS. I'll try to explain this slowly, because it's all enough that there's a diagram explaining it all. So! Today brings The Following, the paid expansion which adds a new area and vehicles to Dying Light. Today also brings a free update with many tweaks and…

Hands On: Dying Light – The Following

I'm the resident cheerleader for Dying Light [official site] round these parts. Techland's zombies 'n' parkour urban playground was one of my favourite action games of 2015, and a few hours with enormous expansion The Following have convinced me that the entire game is far smarter than the surface suggests. Rather than distracting from the free-running and scavenging, the addition of a vehicle and rural…

Dying Light Adds Deathmatch, Plus Peek At Following

A dead man's tongue unrolls from the cuckoo clock, leathery lungs hissing its call as the bloodbells chime, which can only mean it's murdertime. Dying Light [official site] has added conventional man-killing deathmatch with an update to its level editor, so you can battle folks who are as zippy and wily as yourself. Kill! Kill! Players can make their own co-op maps now too. Or,…

A Better You: Dying Light’s Legendary Levels

Dying Light's [official site] mega-expansion, The Following, takes the zombie-killing open world action out of the city and into the surrounding area. That means your parkour and urban scavenging skills might be slightly less useful than they had been while you were clambering across rooftops and digging through the trash. Enter the buggy - a customisable vehicle that has its own equivalent of the base…

Dying Light: The Following Teases New Story Trailer

Since its reveal earlier this year, details on The Following - the upcoming expansion for zombie survival parkour-a-thon Dying Light [official site] - have been few and far between. We've been told there'll be an unscrupulous cult, that we'll get to travel outside the quarantine zone, and that we'll get to cart around in a selection of undead-decimating dune buggies. Now, we discover there might…

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…

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…

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…
