First released in 2015, Techland's Dying Light has since gotten quite a bit of support from the studio including several content drops and a proper expansion. And now it has announced plans to continue supporting the game with a '10 free DLCs in 12 months' campaign -- with a separate DLC pack focusing on new enemies coming in the next few weeks.
In the announcement Techland confirms that since its debut Dying Light has seen very little drop-off in audience, a remarkable feat for the game.
Almost three years after the original Dying Light was released, about half a million people still play the game every week. In the very first months on the market in 2015, the weekly numbers were around 700 000. This shows that our community is still huge, active, and craving for more. Not a single day passes without requests for new weapons, outfits, and quests. In the face of such enthusiasm and engagement, we cannot keep quiet. Today I’m happy to announce Techland’s continuous support for Dying Light.
Original content is already in the works and our fans can expect to face new challenging enemies, master new gameplay mechanics, solve more Harran mysteries, and even explore never-seen-before locations. This translates to ten pieces of DLC in the first twelve months of our continuous support - available free for all players, across all platforms.
Continuous support means also more updates, gameplay tweaks, and community events. As we firmly believe in active collaboration between the design team and players, we hope this announcement will encourage our fans to share their thoughts, stories, and ideas about how we can improve their experience even more.
As always we are all ears,
We reviewed the core version of the game back in 2015
, saying that it "combines the movement of Mirror's Edge, the combat and crafting of Dead Island and Dead Rising with the open-world of both Fallout 3 and the most recent Far Cry games".
So, of course it's still popular.
