As the studio alluded to only yesterday, Dying Light: The Following will supplant the base game across digital storefronts on February 9, before being gradually phased out across retail outlets soon thereafter. 

Vanilla Dying Light will soon be no more, though here’s how you can plan for the title’s future, courtesy of Techland.

“Dying Light: The Following is a massive expansion to Dying Light, which introduces a host of new features, including a vast new map, drivable and customizable buggies, and a new mysterious storyline.”

“A character level of around 18 or more is recommended when starting Dying Light: The Following. However, you can choose to play it at any point after completing the main game’s prologue.”

“You will have to complete the prologue part of Dying Light before you can jump into Dying Light: The Following.”
