Dying Light: The Following to come in early 2016

Techland has confirmed that Dying Light: The Following will launch in the first quarter of 2016.

Dying Light’s first major expansion finally has a release window, after being announced by Techland several months ago.

The Following will launch within the first three months of 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Techland has released a small statement regarding the announcement, saying:

“[The 2016 release] “gives us enough time to put in all the content and surprises we have planned.”

The statement did not specify a release date however, Techland will share “the exact day of release as soon as we get a final decision.”

The Following is a story-based expansion for Dying Light that will act as a continuation to the main game’s narrative whilst also adding a bunch of new mechanics.

It will see protagonist Kyle Crane travel to the outback where he will encounter “mysterious and fanatical cultists” with information on the zombie outbreak.

One of the biggest additions is vehicles, which can now be driven about the environment to mow down zombies and travel to objectives.

The dirt buggy is your most important vehicle, which can be customised and upgraded with its very own skill tree.

According to Techland, the dirt buggy is Dying Light’s “deadliest weapon yet.”

The Following will be available as part of Dying Light’s £15.99 season pass, if not you can always purchase the expansion separately.

Dying Light launched in January 2015, breaking sales records for developer Techland.

We called Dying Light “The Last of Us meets Far Cry 3” in our review, scoring it 8/10.
