This is what you call a proper DLC! *For some reason steam says I've played 0 hours , but I've actually played around 6 hours*

Dying light the following is probably the first DLC for any game since Red Dead: Undead nightmare that has properly impressed me. It features a large new map, lots of new weapons (Including quite a few new guns), new enemy types, new events/side missions and a large variety of other small tweaks.

The best aspect of the DLC turned out to be the feature I was most sceptical about, buggies.
The biggest change in general gameplay is the player's personal buggy which is used to rapidly explore the new , more 'spaced out' map. I was sceptical about this feature as I expected the actual driving mechanics to be mediocre, but in reality the buggies are fun to drive, sound good and open up a whole range of new possibilities for fun and mayhem. The new driving skill allows you to gradually learn the art of repairing and upgrading your buggy with a range of visual paintjobs + accessories, as well as performance and handling upgrades which make a very noticeable difference.

The following perfectly maintains the atmosphere and feeling of quality that Dying light's original story created, while adding enough content to provide many more hours of zombie killing fun. Me and my mate had already put 135 hours into dying light's base content, and will be putting many more hours in now.

The actual main story line of The Following is fairly short, so if you prefer sticking to a games main narrative, you could probably be done in under 10 hours. However, upgrading + customising your buggy, killing the 6 new bosses, finding collectables and completing side missions/activities could easily give you 25 hours+ of entertainment.

Massive kudos to the dev's for producing a well made and well thought out DLC

One of the best DLCs I've played for a long time.

The quality and the amount of content in The Following is way worth the money and gameplaywise this is easily worth 20$ or so.

A completely new open world map with alot of new weapons and enemies + of course your trusty Buggy to ride and smash zombies with. More customisation and exploration.

Driving your buggy in The Following's countryside is great, but It's even better with friends and that is why this makes such a great format for co - op play.


Only 2 complaints about this really.

First one being the newly added legend system that gives you a lot of xp by killing enemies, but not even near enough by doing other activities. This means that you need to farm kills to get more legend level. Also you lose your xp when you die. Soo it's not really nice to farm big enemies while playing on the harder difficulties.

The other complaint is about the ending. (No detailed spoilers, but an opinion yes)

While I really liked how they made the story interesting with alot of suprising events and nice narrative, Im not pleased with how the game ends. Remember Mass Effet 3's original endings? Well yea, expect something like that. Of course you can't always have your fairy tale ending to every plot, but I personally feel that all my effords throughout the game were made useless and in vain.

Overall, just gameplay-wise, this is a really nice piece of DLC and is totally worth your own and your friend's time.

This is epic tier DLC.
you get more actual game in this, not just extra 'features' that feel like they shouldve been added for free.
Theres 2 different ways to end the storyline.
The driving physics actually feel kinda good, and the upgrades for the buggy are badass, also you can have a friend ride in the back!
idk if just the enhanced edition updated some of the gun loot, but ive noticed theres a few diffrent types of guns than was in the base game, ex, semiauto shotguns, uzis, revolvers and new rifles.
Map is pretty huge and fun to drive through,
the one thing that is kinda rough is if you die at night you will most likely respawn in a hunting tower that is reeeall far away from your buggy, and the new volitiles at night can be a bih. but the night passes alot quicker than in the city though.

I recommend this fire dlc, even at fullprice

I just finished playing this with a friend. We went through the vanilla Dying Light and really enjoyed the game. This expanions? Not so much.


- more of the game you just played. If you liked Dying Light gameplay you'll get more plus a dune buggy thing.
- a new map?


-really strange endings. They made sense I suppose but the execution felt rushed or not fleshed out. The "boss" is someone you learn mostly about right at the end. I'm sure there are little pieces hidden across the map that leave hints but to be honest I just didn't care.

-the boss "fight" was extremely simple slugfest that left me wondering if I missed something.

-very few of the characters stuck with me. Just quest givers I had to talk to so I could make progress.

-Quest variety was a little limited. Thing's started to drag on a bit and I found myself wanting to get to the ending. Not usually a good sign.

-Map design felt janky. It was like each quest had you go to the opposite side of the map. This also could have been my fault for choosing the wrong quest? Still I'd argue that the quest flow was not the best at times. It felt like bridges were placed at awkward places making traversing the island frustrating. Sometimes ravines or cliffs felt like you could traverse them only to find yourself run into a solid wall later and have to double back.

It is Awful. Just awful.

-Getting hit by air is a very common theme.
-Grappling hook is fails 99% of the time.
-Overhyped Vehical attacks/Mods.
-Overhyped New Guns / Weapons.
-Lousy story Gameplay.
-Lousy story.
-Lousy Decisions.
-Awful Harder difficulty's ("Yes,Lets just add more of our broken Runner zombie and Bohemonths during the day and Tons of Viotiles during the night that can just touch the car and will kill you.)
-Awful animations.
-Awful shops. (They litterally sell garbage until once a blue moon you will get 1 of something usefull.
-Awful vehical Phisics. (Zombies can walk through wood fences but it will cause your buggy to stop or come to a near stop(Even fully upgraded).
-Too short. For the first DLC being this short, Might aswell just told your fans that you needed money.
-So many more but I cant even remember because I wanted this to be a good dlc. This Dev team is garbage and if this is their first DLC, the rest will either never show up, or be copy paste nonsense.

-It looks pretty
-The steam page makes it sound like the devs spent alot of time on it.
-The few side quests are better then the main story.
-Steam made it easy to tell people not to waste their money.

+ Dune Buggy - Not forced, fun to use, handles the way you'd expect. Also customizable, inside and out!
+ New massive map - No shortage of things to do and explore.
+ New weapons - Only found a few so far, but more weapons, more fun!
+ New volatile - Seriously spooky. Spookier than the base game version in Slums and Old Town. Night is intense.
+ More story - Can't judge it yet, only a couple hours in, but it's pretty interesting.

- Lack of gun customization - This is something I was hoping for, but wasn't really expecting. No attachments to put on guns (sights, suppressor, etc). Not a huge problem, but it could add to the overall game, and offer more combat options.

For 20$, you really can't go wrong. Maybe Techland will help set standards for how DLC should be done.

The buggy makes this DLC an absolute slog until it can be weaponized. Volatiles and Virals knock it around like paper and can easily keep pace with it. This makes traveling at night near impossible, and turns day into a stop-and-go as you constantly get out to fend off a wave of virals. This also hits the DLC early on, as the second mission has a time-lock segment that must be completed to continue. For those unfortunate enough to hit this section at night, it means getting real familiar with the mission failed screen.

Safe houses can be cleared but won't become usable until another mission is completed. The game also adds hunting towers, which serve as unprotected respawn locations. Get stuck in one during the night, and it fast saps any motivation to play further. Missions also have a stronger lean towards human fights, which for me were some of the weakest sections of the base game. The game has just proven to be continued frustration and annoyance. Not recommended.

I am so disappointed with this DLC because of the vehicle bug.

I can't repair my buggy. I don't know why. I tried to repair it a few times.
It consomed me a lot of Screw but everytime when I quit Repair/Upgrade menu it broken again.

I think this vehicle is essential to the dlc so please fix it.

they should have reset the skill level tree in an interesting manner. The weapons are to full powered and it has turned less survival and more hack an slash.

The main questline is OK, the buggy driving is really ♥♥♥♥ing annoying, and the final mission has a time limit, but a pretty damn cool boss fight and 3 possible endings (one of which is hidden).
Be the Zombie mode is ♥♥♥♥ing awesome, highly reccommend it, although it is rather easy as if you can single out people you can easily pounce them.
