The first of the free Dying Light DLC will add new enemies

Posted by , | Views: 5,996

Techland have sent out another teaser today about the upcoming free DLC planned for Dying Light [Steam] and it seems some tough new enemies are coming.

Check out the teaser linked on Twitter:

A new threat is arriving. Content Drop #0 is launching for free on all platforms in the coming weeks.

For those that didn't see before, Techland are planning 10 free DLC packs over the next year, with this looking like the first. This is promising, as I was half expecting them to just dump in some new skins, not new enemies to face off against.

I'm still damn impressed they are doing this, considering how big the game is already it's about to get bigger. I still find it odd companies don't just release big patches, but go for free DLC instead now. Likely as free DLC will get a bigger splash than a patch.

Going to be an exciting year for fans of Dying Light. I'm excited, as it is a great game, it has issues sure, but what game doesn't?

Lots of games get updated with new content, it's just basic development to make a game a better game. What's odd is seeing it done so much after the final version is out because this is more like it's back in Early Access. I can only hope they won't mess anything up! At least they are DLC modules so you can remove them if you don't like the change.

Yay!! For my money, this is one of the best conceived and executed zombie games available on any platform. While I roll my eyes at news of yet more content oozing into Payday 2, I'm delighted to hear that more is coming to Dying Light!

Don't forget that the game has been priced at $60 for how long? A long time. Nothing truly wrong with that, but it could be a reason why the DLC is already paid for.

Yep if they were overcharging gamers by this point then at least some of that is coming back to us in the form of new content.

I was kicking myself for buying this game at full price a week before it went on sale, but I must say, it was well worth the 60$ and I would say even more so at the 24$ price point it is at now. Best zombie game I think I have ever played, and with all the free upcoming DLC I couldn't really ask for more.

Amazing game that's crying out for Vulkan support.

Basic VR support would be awesome too.

Cool, just finished it for the second time today, first time through co-op. Can't wait to hear what the rest are

It had a rough start on Linux, but it runs great now. I've actually been really impressed with Dying Light on Linux, especially since it's rumored the port was handled by a couple of college interns.

I hope they'll patch this game to use Vulkan on Linux.
