Mod me good.

Wonderful things, mods. Without them, we’d have far fewer readme files in the world. Today Dying Light [official site] joined in on the mod fun with the release of its official mod tools, which let folks create levels, script quests, and whatnot. You too could make a map of your office and populate it with lookalikes of your office who tell you how cool and ruggedly good-looking you are. But please do remember to write a readme explaining that.

Or, for non-modders, good news: I see a load of new Dying Light things to play coming your way.

April 16, 2015 UPDATE:

Small patch for Dying Light has been released, focusing solely on Dying Light Dev Tools and Steam Workshop integration with Dying Light.

Dear Gamers,

Dying Light Developer Tools are finally here! You can go to Steam->Library->Tools right now, download the tools, and start creating and sharing your own Dying Light content. We can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with!

Should you need a helping hand to get started, we prepared a set of video guides to explain the ins and outs of our editor, which you can find here. We also plan to release more in-depth videos in the coming weeks to showcase more advanced capabilities of our tools.

As always, we’re restlessly waiting for your feedback. Our Developer Tools will be regularly expanded with new possibilities and updates, so what you say and what you create do matter to us. If there’s anything particular that you want to see corrected, speak up!

Without further ado, we wish you all never-ending strikes of creativity.

Good Night and Good Luck!

-- Dying Light Dev Team

Hello everyone,

Developer tools for Dying Light are coming and they’re almost there. We’ll be releasing them soon, but before that happens we want to invite you to a closed beta. You can be one of the first people to create content for Dying Light and influence the development of our tools!

As this is still an early version of the developer tools, be prepared to come across some difficulties. But that’s exactly why we’re reaching to you – we need your insightful feedback. If you feel up to the task, contact us at:

We’re waiting for you!

Johnny Protagonist engages in the exciting new sport of Xtreme Modding.

Techland, makers of Dying Light [official site], have announced they plan to release official mod tools for the free-running zombie ‘em up. Developers actively encouraging mods rather than simply tolerating them is grand in this day and age, when official support in blockbusters is rarer than it once was, and especially after the kerfuffle surrounding Dying Light mods over the past fortnight (I’ll explain in a bit). They haven’t said yet quite what the tools will support or when they’ll arrive, only that they’ll be “extensive”. Good-o!
