If there was a Nobel Peace Prize for gaming, Dying Light developer Techland would probably have it as a permanent installation in its Ostrów Wielkopolski office. We found out last month that it would be supporting Dying Light for another year, and now the game’s producer, Tymon Smektala, has outlined in a new video just what this means for fans.

A grand total of ten additional DLC packs will be coming Dying Light’s way over the next 12 months, all of them absolutely free for anyone who owns the original game. Bravo Techland, that explains why you’ve still got an active player base of more than 500K every week, some 2.5 years after Dying Light launched. Games that came out around the same time and dropped off the face of the Earth include Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Battlefield Hardline. It’s funny what some decent (preferably not money grabbing) post-launch support can do for your game.

The DLC packs for Dying Light will all sprinkle a little additional depth throughout Harran, adding in new enemies, special events, mysteries to be solved, weapons and more. It all starts off with DLC #0, which appears to be some sort of paramilitary group coming to hunt Crane down. They look like a well-organised bunch, with a well-stocked armoury that looks like a sweet shop for psychopaths.

Dying Light’s first of ten DLC packs should be arriving soon, and presumably, you can expect to get additional content drops every five weeks or so. Keep an eye on your Steam downloads for the inevitable updates.

Defo, they focus on great gameplay and dlc's etc, where as other devs only seem to focus on what drm to use

Looks like they have learned from respecting their community, just like CDProjektRed.
I like that the industry is taking a turn toward mutual respect and away from printing copy paste titles.

Unfortunately, just a couple companies doing this isn't really he industry taking a turn.
The big hitters, EA and Ubi are still going to try and milk people with microtransactions and season passes which offer almost nothing.
Not to mention the games still won't be ready for launch when we actually get to play them.
However, I am still happy some companies respect us.

It is an awesome game. I just recently reinstalled it as I never played The Following, had a blast.

I really love this game besides the cliche storyline (prefer the Dead Island story) everything was perfect can't wait for the DLC and hopefully we get Dying Light 2 / Dead Island 2 soon
