Techland showed off the reveal trailer for Dying Light: The Following at Gamescom, and now it’s finally available for everyone to view. The story-based expansion to Dying Light is set in a new area that’s as big as the original maps from Dying Light combined. The Following sees Kyle Crane travel to a hazardous outback that’s ruled by cultists with unnerving beliefs and connections to the zombie outbreak.
For Crane to get close to the cult and figure out their secrets, you’ll need to earn the trust of the locals. Play through various missions and tasks, choosing your own path for infiltrating the inner circles of the cultists. In order to succeed in this harsh countryside, players will also gain access to fully customizable and upgradable dirt buggies. With its own unique skill tree, players will be able to traverse the vast expanse of the Harran countryside in what is their deadliest weapon yet.
“Gamescom 2015 was our first chance to let people play Dying Light: The Following so I was a bit nervous – admits producer Tymon Smektała. But so many positive reactions really showed me we made the right decision to work on this expansion. With its new map and far-reaching gameplay additions, it feels like we’ve hit the sweet spot for what players are expecting from us.”
While a release date has not been set at this time, Techland confirmed that Dying Light: The Following will be priced at $14.99, and all Season Pass holders will receive the expansion for free.
