A new trailer for Techland’s Dying Light expansion, The Following, shows off vehicle customization, including decals, bobbleheads, upgrades, and weapons.
About six months ago, Dying Light developer, Techland, teased gamers with some footage of an upcoming expansion, called The Following, for their first-person zombie action game. Today, Techland released a new trailer giving gamers additional information about the expansion, including a few details about the in-game dirt buggies coming with the DLC.
As the below trailer shows, Dying Light players will be able to cruise around The Following’s wide-open addition to the map in their customizable dirt buggies. Players will be able to add paint jobs and unlock bobbleheads and charms to show off on their buggies. They’ll also be able to modify and upgrade various vehicle parts, including the engine, tires, and other sections of the buggies. Finally, and probably most excitingly, players can add unique weapons to their vehicles, such as a ramming bar and flamethrower.
Needless to say, the buggy customization looks epic, and will definitely thrill any players who pick up The Following for Dying Light. Along with the ability to mow down hordes of zombies with impressively outfitted buggies, the trailer also hints at racing events coming with the DLC. It’ll be fun to see what all is included with the buggies and map.
Considering the way Dying Light splits up the various playable areas, it’s likely the buggies will only be available in the new map area. It doesn’t look like players will be able to transfer their drivable vehicles to previous game areas.
Those looking to pick up The Following for Dying Light will be happy to hear the expansion goes beyond just additional acreage and vehicles. As a story-based DLC, players can look forward to new missions, weapons, and characters.
According to the game’s website, the story aspect of The Following will center around an “untold chapter” of Kyle Crane’s story, and will take place in a region “bigger than all areas of the original game combined.”
As with the original game, players will be able to acquire and spend skill points, with new “Driver” skills available for players to unlock and upgrade. Among the skill tree options is an Electric Cage, which electrifies zombies that surround a player’s buggy; as well as a UV SafeZone, that adds UV lights to buggies to deter zombies at night.
It won’t be surprising to see Techland’s best selling game continue to do well with this new expansion. It’ll be interesting to see the full suite of additions to Dying Light once The Following releases next month.
