Techland has released the first full-length trailer for zombie game Dying Light's upcoming story-based expansion, The Following. The video, which was originally shown to press behind closed doors at Gamescom last week, shows off the game's main area, which is as large as all the original maps combined.

The trailer also teases out some story details about The Following. Protagonist Kyle Crane (voiced by Assassin's Creed and Batman voice actor Roger Craig Smith) travels to a dangerous outback, where he meets "mysterious and fanatical cultists" who have information about the zombie outbreak.

Players won't be able to simply walk right up to the cultists and learn their secrets. First, they must complete various missions and objectives in the deadly environment to earn their trust.

As previously announced, The Following introduces vehicles for the first time in Dying Light through the dirt buggy, which is customizable and upgradable. It also features its own skill tree. Overall, Techland called the dirt buggie Dying Light's "deadliest weapon yet."

The Following is included with the $20 Dying Light DLC pass, while everyone else can buy it for $15. A release date has not been announced.

Dying Light launched in January 2015 and broke Dead Island sales records. By Techland's most recent count, Dying Light had 4.5 million players.
