Dying Light: The Following (PC) is the first expansion for Techland's parkouring zombie-killer Dying Light. The base game's protagonist Kyle Crane returns and journeys outside the city of Harran. He needs to find a cult allegedly immune to the zombie plague before the medicine reserves in Harran are completely gone.So enter your buggy, polish your weapons, and prepare to travel a brand new area.
Leaving the tight confines of a city is rarely wise without a car. Its even less wise, when the rural areas you expect to travel through are full of zombies. It's a good thing, then, that Dying Light: The Following allows you to build and upgrade your very own buggy.Turn an old buggy into an engine of destruction. Upgrade its traction, brakes, suspension engine, and turbo before you even start with weapon systems.Watch zombies fall apart as you run them over, burn then to crisp, or electrocute them. But be careful: too much fun and the buggy will require repairs or it won't serve you any longer.
Kyle Crane comes back to continue saving Harran. When the reserves of the zombie medicine run out, the only hope lies with a mysterious cult located far from the city. Allegedly they are immune to the plague, but can Kyle ensure their help?The journey will take him in unexpected directions, let him meet unexpected allies and new enemies. What will be the conclusion of the story? The decisions you make will always have dire consequences. Can you make the call?
New, powerful enemies
If in the Dying Lights endgame you sneered at how weak your enemies are, The Following gameplay brings the challenge back. The outskirts of Harran are no place for an inexperienced character and player.For extra challenge try and take down the Freak of Nature breed of zombies: incredibly resilient and powerful, requiring good cooperation with an equally experienced friend. What good are your guns, when they just bounce right back, barely scratching the new enemies' hides? The strength lies in cooperation. And explosives. Lots and lots of explosives.
Content to discover
The area featured in Dying Light: The Following is much more open than the tight confines of Harran, but it is hardly empty. There is a wealth of hidden locations, distress calls, military caches and bandit pacification, in addition to timed challenges and looking for unique, powerful, or just cool upgrades for your buggy. At no point during The Following can you feel bored.There is enough content to keep this game about the figurative undead alive for a long time.
