Has nothing at all to do with Kevin Bacon.
Techland have today released a bundle of information about The Following, a new story-based DLC for Dying Light. Dying Light: The Following promises a massive new area that’s as big as the original maps from Dying Light combined.
Yes, you read that correctly. Dying Light: The Following is going to be as big as the whole of Dying Light thus far.
We really don’t know what they’re putting in the water over in Poland, but following the announcement that the first Witcher 3 story DLC will be “as big as Witcher 2” and now this from Techland? We’re super-excited to see some real value from our DLC for once!
Here’s what Techland had to say about it:
“Gamescom 2015 was our first chance to let people play Dying Light: The Following so I was a bit nervous, but so many positive reactions really showed me we made the right decision to work on this expansion. With its new map and far-reaching gameplay additions, it feels like we’ve hit the sweet spot for what players are expecting from us.” – Producer Tymon Smektała.
Dying Light: The Following will see Kyle Crane traversing the hazardous Harran outback, infiltrating the inner circles of the cult (it definitely sounds like that Kevin Bacon show) and will have access to all new skill trees, deadly new weapons and – as predicted – those dirt buggies. There’s a trailer, too:
Dying Light: The Following will be available for $14.99 (UK/EU pricing to be confirmed) and will of course be free to all Season Pass holders. The release date has not yet been revealed.
