Dying Light Receiving a Year of Free DLC
Ben Sheene / Jul 24th, 2017 No Comments
Dying Light developer Techland announced it will be releasing 10 pieces of free DLC for the game over the next 12 months.
Tymon Smektala, game producer at Techland, discussed Dying Light’s active player community and the team’s appreciation for the game.
When it released in January 2015, Dying Light faced little competition. Arriving after the holiday rush and before some bigger spring releases, the game sold quite well and received a good deal of critical acclaim.
Techland saw an average of 700,000 players weekly during September 2015. In May 2017, the player weekly average sat at 500,000. That impressive number of players is also likely due to Techland’s continuing support for Dying Light. In the nearly three years since the game’s initial release the studio has constantly kept the community involved with more content. February 2016 saw the release of The Following, a major expansion that added a new story, new weapons, and new gameplay mechanics.
The 10 new pieces of DLC will include new enemies, more events, new events, and other unannounced pieces of content. The content will be free across all platforms. The first content titled “DLC #0” features new, harder enemies. Though Techland has yet to officially announce a sequel to Dying Light, the success of the original likely justifies its existence.
