After clearing up some reports about PC mod tools earlier this week, Dying Light developer Techland on Friday announced plans to release free modding tools to gamers.
In a release, Techland acknowledged that some players are already making mods, and explained, "We want to see more!" Being a sandbox open-world game, Dying Light is a good match for modding, Techland added.
That's why Techland has now announced plans to release "free and extensive" modding tools for Dying Light, and the studio is looking for feedback regarding what players want to see.
Head to the game's forums here to join in the conversation.
Techland has long been a serious supporter of modding, with the developer's previous franchises such as Call of Juarez and Dead Island boasting a healthy modding community. Techland hopes to carry this forward with Dying Light.
"This invitation is only the first stage of our cooperation with the gaming community," the developer said. "After the modding tools are released, we plan to actively support the coolest mods created by players."
"We want to give creative freedom to the players to help keep Dying Light fresh and interesting even many years after their release. We want to thank players for the support they have shown us and are looking forward to their ideas where Dying Light can go from here."
Earlier this week, reports emerged that Dying Light was blocking fan-made mods. However, this turned out to be a misunderstanding.
Dying Light was released last week for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It has already netted more than 1.2 million players across all platforms. For more on Dying Light, check out GameSpot's review.
