After The Awakening expansion to Techland’s Free-Running Zombie game Dying Light that the team would be done with the title. However, Techland has announced that they’ll be continuing support for the game with 10 pieces of free DLC within 12 months.
The DLC was announced with an enthusastic letter from Paweł Marchewka, Techland’s CEO, which you can read below:
Almost three years after the original Dying Light was released, about half a million people still play the game every week. In the very first months on the market in 2015, the weekly numbers were around 700 000. This shows that our community is still huge, active, and craving for more. Not a single day passes without requests for new weapons, outfits, and quests. In the face of such enthusiasm and engagement, we cannot keep quiet. Today I’m happy to announce Techland’s continuous support for Dying Light.
Original content is already in the works and our fans can expect to face new challenging enemies, master new gameplay mechanics, solve more Harran mysteries, and even explore never-seen-before locations. This translates to ten pieces of DLC in the first twelve months of our continuous support – available free for all players, across all platforms.
Continuous support means also more updates, gameplay tweaks, and community events. As we firmly believe in active collaboration between the design team and players, we hope this announcement will encourage our fans to share their thoughts, stories, and ideas about how we can improve their experience even more.
As always we are all ears,
The first of the DLC will be coming in the next couple of weeks called – Content Drop #0 – and will focus on new enemies. Dying Light was released in January 2015 and was well received thanks to its focus on survival and fun parkour gameplay.
