A demo for zombie game Dying Light is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Techland announced today. The demo lets players explore "most" of the game's Slums area, and should offer around three hours of gameplay across its one quest chain, multiple sidequests, and various challenges.

Dying Light's free demo also supports online co-op for up to four players.

Techland is launching a Dying Light demo now, six months and 5 million sales after the game's release in January, because demand remains "high" and a demo may help sales only increase further.

"With the demand for Dying Light still high after more than half a year on the market, we wondered what else we could do to help players decide which game to buy," Tymon Smektała said in a statement. "Then we thought: demos were pretty much a standard in the previous generation, but suddenly they've become few and far between. So we decided to use some of our resources to release a demo now and let everyone experience our game first-hand."

Techland is now working on Dying Light's major expansion, The Following, which introduces vehicles, as well as a new map and progression system. The developer recently published a 15-minute gameplay demo for the expansion, which is free for season pass owners and costs $15 for everyone else. A release date for The Following has not been announced.

Looking beyond that, Techland says it has ambitious ideas for a Dying Light sequel.
