Dying Light Getting Even More DLC in 2016

"We are already working on new unannounced content," developer says.

39 Comments

Dying Light's just-released The Following expansion won't be the only new piece of content coming to the multimillion-selling zombie game this year. Developer Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka penned an open letter to fans today, thanking them for their support and teasing the new, unannounced content.

"We are humbled by the immensely positive reception of the enhanced version of our game," Marchewka said, referencing the recently released Dying Light Enhanced Edition. "We always had faith in the project, but seeing so many enthusiastic opinions among players and high review scores from the press is utterly heart-warming.

"At the same time it is a clear sign that there is still high demand for that unique Dying Light experience. To make sure that every new or veteran player gets all the fun they deserve, we have decided to continue our support for Dying Light at least till the end of this year. We are already working on new unannounced content, so stay tuned for our future news."

He didn't provide any further details on this content. We'll bring you more news as it's announced.

Machewka went on to say that he encourages Dying Light fans to send in their feedback about where they would like to see the series go next. "We strongly believe in active collaboration between our design team and you, players who every day fight for survival in the world of Dying Light," he said.

In August 2015, Dying Light producer Tymon Smektala revealed that the game had sold 5 million copies, becoming a "tremendous success." He also teased that Techland has ideas for a sequel.

"We have lots of very ambitious ideas so first we need to check if these ideas are even doable with the tech that the current consoles provide," Smektala said. "We also need to check if our concepts are really as good as we think they are, so we need to prototype things."

I would seriously be SO HAPPY, if they added some kind of mode where the infected were only fast runner zombies. Like the infected in 28 days later which i consider the best of the best. It is horrifying and intense when EVERY infected is a great threat!

This would add another dimension of difficulty, and totally change your style of playing.

It could for example be another harder difficulty stage than what is already in the game.

This would be amazing, i promise!

I'm more looking forward to Hellraid. Would be nice if they would continue development on that instead.

This game is great. And the developer support is awesome. The only US development studio still producing AAA quality content is Bethesda. Hope we see more from Polish studios.

so lets get this straight, they released a Season pass which they didn't support at all, finally release a worthwhile DLC, then announce they are making more DLC for Dying light, but didn't specify if season pass owners would get said content. I'll go out on a limb and assume you'll need to buy a second season pass to get whatever new content they make.. how special..

@OrgeLambart: I'll accept the risk of sounding like a jerk/troll and just say straight up that you are dumb. A second season pass? Like the other guy said, who has EVER done that? Without even knowing the facts I'd bet everything I own that you are ridiculously wrong lol.

@MarcRecon: you mean extra content you had to pay for? Let me guess, this new content will be additional even for season pass buyers..

@nibbin1191: They are talking about additional content aside from the already given season pass stuff, which I'll assure you will cost extra money. unless they raise the price of the season pass which I doubt. they will..

I still think they waited too long to release the expansion from a simple business point of view when you release a game and it has a lot of hype you talk about the expansion and release it in the coming months.

@yukushi: yeah..but the same is with the Witcher. Making the expansions took time since they focused on the main game and the dlc required time to be made. Not like most companies where you get the expansion right away or even before the game comes out ;p

I'm about half way complete with The Following, and as happy I am with the improvements to the base game, and 50% more content for a half-priced expansion, I get the feeling that at the end of it I would still be keen to play a second expansion.

I don't really know where I'd like to see the series go next? Dying Light was so out of left-field for me, so surprise me again Techland.

So I'll look forward to more DLC. And a sequel of course, heck yeah !

Thats awesome and all, but really I'd love just to see a full blown sequel. Great game, they could build upon a lot of stuff from the first.
