Dying Light’s community is still half a million strong, getting more free DLC

Ten free drops planned for the coming year, says Techland

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Dying Light, which launched in 2015, still has such a large and devoted following that Techland has planned 10 free DLC drops over the coming year as a thank you.

In the video above, Techland's Tymon Smektala says that Dying Light had a weekly average of 700,000 players in September 2015, nine months after launch. Almost two years after that, Dying Light still has a weekly average player base of 500,000.

"This shows our community is huge, active and craving for more," Smektala said.

The DLC schedule will include more enemies, events and mysteries to solve. It starts with “DLC No. 0,” which introduces new adversaries. No specific launch date was given, but Smektala said it's coming soon. The enemies in question appear to be these bad guys, teased on July 16.

At Gamescom last year, Techland's chief executive committed the studio to publishing two "major multiplatform" video games per year. He also said that the studio was developing two AAA games itself, one of them a new property, meaning the other could be the sequel to Dying Light. That has not been formally announced yet.
