Update: In a statement, Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka revealed that roughly 500,000 people still play Dying Light each week:
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.
Content Drop #0, which focuses on new enemies, will be out in the coming weeks. After that, you can expect new locations, story-driven quests, gameplay mechanics, weapons, enemies, and more, along with gameplay improvements, balance tweaks, and up to four community events per quarter.
Original Story: Developer Techland has announced that 10 pieces of free DLC are coming to Dying Light over the next 12 months. The content will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and “it won’t be long” before the first piece is released.
Asked what to expect from the DLC, Techland said, “No firm details right now, but you can expect new enemies, gameplay mechanics, mysteries, and even new locations.”
If you don’t own Dying Light, the PlayStation Store in North America is offering Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition for $20.99 USD to non-PlayStation Plus members and $14.99 USD to PS+ members until June 20. The Enhanced Edition includes the base game and all additional bonus content: Be the Zombie, Cuisine & Cargo, Ultimate Survivor Bundle, The Bozak Horde, and The Following.
Back in 2016, Techland said there were 8.5 million Dying Light players and they won’t rush a sequel.
What do you hope to see from the DLC?
