You may be wondering what Dying Light The Following is and thinking you missed out on a sequel or something. What this actually is, is some awesome story DLC that was released for the original Dying Light. I know that you see DLC and you might roll your eyes or be a little skeptical. However, I can assure you that this is some of the most underrated story based DLC I have ever experienced.

Chicks Dig the Car

One of the best things about Dying Light was the urban setting that allowed for some pretty awesome parkour moves. Dying Light The Following is set in a more rural location and as a result, the chances for parkour are few and far between (although not gone completely). As a result, you now get the chance to drive this pretty cool looking buggy!

The driving sounds like something that has been shoehorned into the game, but that could not be further from the truth. The buggy that you drive is a huge part of this DLC and it is done very well. To start with you have to scavenge parts from abandoned cars in order to not just upgrade it, but to keep it running! The upgrades you can do are super cool and eventually, you can add a battering thing on the front and even a flame thrower.

The Great Outdoors

As well as making have a reliance on the buggy the fact that the game is more outdoorsy this time around changes things quite a bit. If you get stuck out in the dark and you are far away from your buggy, you might as well kiss your butt goodbye! Remember in the original Dying Light how your sweet parkour moves could allow you to get out of dodge if things got too intense? Well, you have less chance for that here, especially if you are out in a field somewhere. It makes for an even more tense kind of experience and it is one that I really liked.

Let Me Tell You A Story

Dying Light The Following is story-based DLC and I think the story here is just as good, if not better than what the first game offered. There is a cult that you are trying to get to the bottom of and the ending was something that legit made me stare at the screen in awe! It may start a little on the slow side, but the story that The Following tells is a roller coaster ride and one that you will not instantly forget.

Bring A Friend

You can play Dying Light The Following in co-op and that is a lot of fun. You see you can have one player driving the buggy and then the other player can be on the back with a crossbow, gun or whatever taking down the infected. This is so much fun and you guys will have to work as a team in order to thin the heard of the infected that is around. They have also added some racing that you can do, but in all honesty, this was something that I never really got into. Still, as an added “extra”, I do think that it is pretty cool that they put this in here.

For me, this is some of the best story-based DLC that I have ever spent my money on. Dying Light The Following is a truly wonderful experience and if you had a good time with Dying Light I would even say that this is an essential purchase. The story has a lot of side quests to do so it will keep you busy for a long time. This is some DLC that I cannot recommend highlight enough.
