Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created.
At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression - but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.
If you’re a fan of Dying Light, then The Following is a near essential expansion.
The Following is extensive, exciting, lasts 20-25 hours and adds to the main game many new elements, while losing something (parkour) with the addition of vehicle and not excelling in AI enemy of humans.
If you didn't like Dying Light, you're not going to like The Following but if you're still sitting on the fence or you're interested in smashing some more zombie skulls with all the visually stunning gore that Dying Light: The Following has to offer, then I don't know what you're doing still reading this and not playing it. All in all, the expansion is well worth the price and a really excellent addition to an immensely enjoyable game.
The Following is a solid and consistent open world experience; a true evolution of the original ideas that made Dying Light fun and engaging to play. The agile and frantic parkour experience is now powered by an all-terrain, high octane buggy, which is your primary tool to explore the farmlands of Harran. More importantly, the vehicle is seamlessly integrated with the structure of the game.
The Following is the definition of a true expansion with rich content and more gameplay from the core game Dying Light. The buggy is also an important addition with great fun-factor.
Dying Light: The Following adds a whole new countryside to the zombie infested Harran and a brand-new buggy to ride across it. It's a strong expansion to a great game, continuing the original game's survival aspects into a new, open arena. This is almost a different game hidden in DLC.
Just like the original Dying Light, nothing works quite as well as it should and although there are some interesting new ideas here none of them are realised without significant flaws.
