Do you own the base game of Dying Light? Good news for you, as Techland are bumping everyone up to the full Enhanced Edition which includes The Following expansion. Plus a final patch is out now.

This means all owners of the game (on Steam at least) will get The Following expansion, Bozak Horde, Cuisine and Cargo, Ultimate Survivor bundle and the Crash Test skin bundle! You have to hand it to Techland here, not only have they supported the original Dying Light for many years but bumping everyone up when the sequel is out is pretty fantastic.

A rather big patch also just landed which includes a bunch of changes and additions for the Hellraid DLC including a new weapon, a reworked armory, new consumables, new bounties and other minor additions. Overall, they claim it's much more satisfying to play though.

On top of that the latest patch adds new tutorials for various parts of the game, new blueprints to craft, an overhaul to the Be The Zombie PvP mode, a bunch of bug fixes and the list goes on across two patch notes (#1, #2).

There's also a new event with the crazy engineer twins, Tolga and Fatin, having two new bounties available that are local for you and global for everyone with a new blueprint and 3 King Mods as rewards.

They should be Tolga-and Fatih. cuz there is no Name exist as Fatin in Turkish. (related to game lore events occured in Turkey ŞanlıUrfa Harran district.)
And what about Dying Light 2 Linux version??

Nope, not going to happen. Source: me. ;)

Side note, both Dying Light games run great with Proton and on the Steam Deck. The standalone multiplayer only title Bad Blood doesn't count, it's dead (and had anticheat).

I've had a lot of mileage out of this game and bought a few DLC in the past to support them. My only complaint is that movement feels a little nauseous at times.

As I'd heard the Proton experience was better I switched to that recently. It isn't! Exactly the same as the Linux version for me. Great game though.

That's amazing, they just chucked a 10$+ DLC into the base game? Time to (literally) dive back into Harran.
Wow... now that's what I call long-term support.

Still doing my first play through of the game. It's really fun. I use the proton version with zero issues (except when streaming to a steam link, where I get rare and random freezes)

My Dying Light broke two updates ago. I now have a black and brown screen with the background music.

Three standard things to try:

  • Try adding the launch option -nologos to skip the intro movie, faster loading and can help with black screen/white loading bar crash. (bonus points, this works in Dying Light 2 also)
    Right-click on Dying Light in your Steam Library -> Properties -> Launch Options.

  • If using the Linux native version, try the SLR compatibility tool (Steam Linux Runtime) which uses older libraries to help older games work on modern distros.
    Find it in game Properties -> Compatibility

  • You can also use Proton to play the Windows version, it likely runs better as well. Also found in game Properties -> Compatibility.

I recommend Proton. I had the same problem when I first started playing it a few months ago. Works just fine in proton.

Is the Hellraid dlc any good?
