Dying Light [Steam, Gemly], one of the best Zombie games available on Linux (seriously it is!) has a free update and Techland have announced their own store.

First up, let's look at Content Drop #0 (one of many free updates planned for Dying Light). It includes a new heavily armed human faction, who have some pretty decent firepower and can be found in the Old Town area. A new outfit for you to wear, a new Mutated Goon zombie to wreak more havoc and a new assault rifle. The assault rifle has a small catch, you need to redeem it (for free) on their new store called Gemly.

Their new store, Gemly, will sell their own games as well as hand-picked games from other publishers. They have titles like Alien Isolation, Total War WARHAMMER, Company of Heroes 2, Day of Infamy, The Witcher 2 and more. The games they have that Feral Interactive ported to Linux aren't tagged as Linux titles on their store, so it's possible Feral may not get a cut from here.

They will also put exclusive content on their store for their own games, like the assault rifle for Dying Light.

I've tried to test out their new store by redeeming the free item for Dying Light, but I cannot login as they must be having a high load right now. It took me 4 attempts to get a password reset email for a Techland account I didn't know I had, trying to reset it has only given me server errors.

If you don't own Dying Light and you have a decent PC, I can recommend it. It's a massive game, with tons of content and some slick parkour action. The expansion (which now comes with it if you buy it), expands the game to be even bigger with a customizable buggy too! It's currently 60% off on their store too, good time to grab it cheap.

metro2033fanboySorry, I trust only on Steam/Valve my hard earned money!
You trust steam with your money i dont why i use paypal at least I know steam will never gain access to my account details.

A nice demonstration what punctuation could do for a posting.

Bought this recently after holding out... for some unknown reason. Anyway, the game is fantastic, love it. I've put in 40 hours just completing all the side quests available so far and having fun exploring, but as far as the story line goes I'm only now about to go to old town. I wish I'd done it already as I won't now be able to compare it with the addition of the new content!

I got the new gun from Gemly this morning but it did take a few attempts with some server errors.

stanI was hoping to see Dying Light DRM-free for Linux there…

The lack of a DRM-free version is the only reason I've not bought Dying Light. It's a shame it isn't available on GOG; the Windows version is available there but for some reason the Linux version isn't

Yeah, I don't get why that is the case. You'd think Techland would be fine with having a DRM free Linux version if they were fine with a DRM free Windows version.

The game is awesome, I just wonder if they'll release the VR update for Vive/SteamVR in Linux.

I finally beat the Following portion, and probably would give it another playthrough in VR.

No DRM-free version there? What's the point of that store then?

Whitewolfe80Hey Grammar Nazi thanks
Grammar is important. It's the difference between helping your uncle jack off a horse, or, helping your Uncle Jack, off a horse.

Going back to your other post about you not trusting Valve enough to buy from Steam, you don't need to trust them with your bank account, you can simply make a debt card payment and not save info for next time.
Pretty ironic really how you don't trust such a reputable company like Valve, yet you happily put all your trust into Paypal, who are well known for withholding your money until their next audit so they can maximize interest earnings.

I agree grammar is important, when it matters ie not on an internet forum. Yeah I trust paypal more as I have had extensive financial dealings with the group that owns and operates paypal.

Quote... a Techland account I didn't know I had ...
Really? Anyone with any sense should be using a password manager by now!

It matters if you want to be understood, no matter the place. I didn’t even bother trying to understand your first post as it obviously didn’t make any sense.

I'm holding out because its past due for the price to drop from $60. It's not a new game anymore. I would have bought it when it was new if not for 1) there were linux issues from the get-go which took them a while to resolve and 2) it was obviously going to get milked for DLC. Any such game I'll just wait a year or two for a GOTY edition that has all the content bundled. I just can't justify paying $60 for a game that came out 2.5 years ago now (or any portion thereof in a 'sale' markdown unless it's extreme).

? I just bought it for 20.

So I need a Gemly account in order to get these free updates or would it be going through Steam?
