Techland has announced that Dying Light will be receiving a heap of new downloadable content over the next 12 months.
Dying Light DLC planned for next year
The developer will be releasing 10 new DLC packs for the critically acclaimed zombie title, which still remains extremely active despite originally releasing nearly three years ago. To be more precise, Dying Lightly regularly pulls in an impressive half-a-million users per week.
Dying Light’s new content will include a number of features, such as new enemies, additional in-game events, new locations, and “much, much more.” If that wasn’t exciting enough, the new DLC will be made available for free on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
Techland has confirmed that the first batch of free DLC, known as Content Drop 0, will be made available within the next few weeks. "Drop #0 is a taste of the new things coming to the game, before the ’10 free DLCs in 12 months’ campaign fully launches later this year," said Techland.
There’s also going to be more community events moving ahead, and Techland has said it plans to continue tweaking Dying Light’s gameplay based on fan feedback. The developer will also launch a dedicated community platform “through which fans will have an influence on what kind of new content is created.”
Dying Light was released in January 2015 and was the first new title released by Techland following its departure from the Dead Island franchise. Initially, the game was also planned for release on PS3 and Xbox 360, although these versions were ultimately cancelled as the hardware could not sufficiently handle the title.
Techland previously confirmed it has two triple-A games in the works, hinting that Dying Light 2 could be in development. While no further details are known at this point, the original game was a massive success, selling over five million copies worldwide, so a sequel wouldn’t be much of a surprise at this point.
