During the deluge of news that came out of E3 2017, some Dying Light fans might have missed the developer Techland’s announcement that it plans to continue adding even more content to the survival-horror game with a year’s worth of free DLC. Should this have been the case for many, the company recently published a video teasing the actual materials of the forthcoming expansions, proclaiming that the add-on drops are set to occur over the course of the next 12 months.
As seen below in the video from the official Dying Light YouTube channel, the game’s producer, Tymon Smektala, offers up a cursory description of the content to come, with Techland planning to add new and challenging enemies, more in-game events, extra mysteries to solve, as well as “much, much more.” In order to give fans a “tiny taste” of the impending materials, the developer will release a content drop with new enemies sometime soon called “DLC #0,” which isn’t included in the ten new releases, as it’s just being offered as tease of what’s to come.
Techland’s explanation for its continued support of Dying Light is related to the sizable amount of players that continue to enjoy the survival-horror title well after its release back in 2015. As it so happens, the game still attracts 500,000 active users a week, which is just 200,000 shy of its weekly active users when it became available over three years ago, denoting an incredibly healthy post-launch community.
Without a doubt, Techland’s continued updates for Dying Light have helped in buoying the game and its player base, and it’s likely that the latest batch of DLC over the course of the next 12 months will be able to further assist the developer’s mission to attract more fans and retain those who continue to play. Even so, it’s safe to say that those who keep returning to Dying Light will be looking forward to the studio’s next proper project, as it currently has two new games in development.
Dying Light is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
