Just a heads up, a new Dying Light patch is now available. Sadly it broke the game for me on my main Ubuntu install
I have emailed and tweeted the developers, so hopefully they will fix it. Some people have reported it works okay for them, but it's completely broken for me.
Shame, as Dying Light is a great game when it actually works. Looks like the problem is my end this time though. I tested it on SteamOS and it works, so there's something not right with it on my Ubuntu install. If I figure it out, I will let you all know.
Update: Found the source of my issue.
The patch doesn't do anything major, but it enables The Following content for the mod tools.
