Dying Light seemed to pass by all of my friends and me too, but its first-person zombie parkour has been a big success for developers Techland. Now the studio are working on two new games, one of which seems likely to be Dying Light 2.

Continuing the year-long support for Dying Light in 2016, we have just expanded the Dying Light Dev Tools. Players now have the ability to use all-terrain buggies featured in Dying Light: The Following on custom maps, even if you only own the base game. With that new addition comes also the option to freely modify the driving system and use the buggies in PvP scenarios.

To coincide with the latest update, Techland and Razer announced the special ‘Buggy Madness’ contest. Anyone can compete by creating a buggy-based custom map using Dying Light Developers Tools (available for free on Steam) and submitting it at the official contest website.

The contest runs from May 19th to June 19th 2016 and aims to select the most creative, enjoyable, and high-quality maps.

More information and the submission form can be found at

Usually we post about Rocket League [official site] because it’s taking yet another iconic car from pop culture and turning it into DLC, but not this time. This time it’s the other way around: it’s the Rocket League buggy that has come to Dying Light [official site] as a free DLC. So if you ever get tired of running over zombies you can play some car football.

Jump the break for a video, and details on how to get the update.

Dying Light Developer Tools and Steam Workshop content for Dying Light have been reactivated and updated with all the assets and content from Dying Light: The Following (excluding the buggy – we’re working on that).

If you do not have Dying Light: The Following, you will still be able to use Dev Tools and enjoy all of the custom maps available on Steam Workshop.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Adam Smith)

The Following is an enormous expansion, adding a huge new map and all manner of vehicular carnage to Techland’s open world zombie-smasher Dying Light [official site]. But does a game about urban exploration and claustrophobic limb-lopping really need to stretch its legs in the great outdoors? And how does a buggy fit into a world of parkour and pummelling? Is car>kour even possible?

Here’s wot I think.
