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 car football.

Jump the break for a video, and details on how to get the update.

Wot I Think: Dying Light – The Following

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 I think.

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 improvements to Dying Light. Lastly, today brings Dying Light: The Following – Enhanced Edition, which combines the base game (and that patch, natch) and The Following plus all its other DLC. Get it? Got it? Good.

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 map bring out the best in the existing systems.

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 game’s skill trees.

Those skills haven’t been left behind though. The expansion, and the free update for the base game, will introduce 250 new legendary levels, allowing you to become faster, stronger and smarter.

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 be a cure and a way out of Harran, courtesy of the new story trailer below.

Undead Undead Undead! Dying Light: Enhanced Edition

Yes, I know this screen is from The Following.

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.
