Dying Light's free 'Content Drop #1' update is here with new weapons

Posted by , | Views: 10,089

Need more ways to kill the infected? Dying Light's [Steam] free 'Content Drop #1' is now available with brand new weapons and more.

There's three new weapons and each of them need you to complete a bounty to get them.

Here's the lowdown on each of them:

New Axe – Fenris

Bounty: Bloodlust


Fenris gains bonus damage for the next swing whenever it cuts off an opponent’s limb, which makes it perfect for fighting a stronger enemy accompanied by a group of weaker ones. Just cut off a weaker enemy’s leg and gain additional power to attack the tough guy.

New Knife – Kuai Dagger

Bounty: Rise of the Phoenix


A very light knife made of jade. It fits the hand so well and weights so little that it allows the runner to reach their maximum speed. Simply string parkour moves together to get an incremental speed boost.

New Revolver – Last Wish

Bounty: Ace in the Hole


What makes the Last Wish special is her final shot mechanic. Land consecutive headshots to increase the firepower of your bullets. Score five headshots in a row for a massive 6th shot.

I absolutely love the game, even though the ending to the first part (without the expansion) was a stupid QTE, the overall gameplay is more than worth it.

Techland are updating the game with 10 new free content updates over a 12 month period. On top of that, you can claim a free special weapon through their new store.

1GB download for a bunch of free weapons, in a game that already has a gazillion of weapons...

Hmm, I love "Dying Light" but I certainly hope that the rest of these downloads has something more worthwhile, like new story content or some kind of random mission generator or something similar to really sink your teeth into.

These challenges are way too hard(especially with below 60FPS) and what you get in exchange is pretty much nothing. The "Rise of the Phoenix" involves speed running and if you don't have a high-end GPU you won't have 60FPS and you won't be able to complete it because the timer is set for 60 FPS. It doesn't matter if you don't make mistakes while doing hard-tier challenges because the timer will lie and the support will send you away if you try to report it.

Also, word of warning: when I've installed the extension I've lost my Harran Military Riffle what I've crafted from a golden Advanced Military Riffle. I know I can make a new one but it's still one of the most expensive/valuable/rare weapon.

The download was only 1GB for me.

Fantastic, nice to see they are still growing the game. Now if the game would actually run on something else than ubuntu 16.04, I might actually enjoy it....
FYI Archlinux + Mesa is a no-go with this one

I thought Dying Light was an abandonware.

I use arch and nvidia and I can run it. I read somewhere that DL now runs on mesa too but don't know where.

Yeah it runs fine on a NVidia sporting arch install. It's only with mesa it won't run. I've been trying to track down the issue, but without the sourcecode it's more akin to an unwanted S&M session.
