“Dying Light: The Following” Demo Info:
“Dying Light”, is an open world, first person survival horror zombie video game developed by Techland, and published under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Dying Light” casts the player in a barren post apocalyptic metropolis, a zombie plagued world. Players must transverse the area to complete missions, acquire scarce supplies and craft weapons to combat the tainted populace. However, nightfall is to be avoided because undead predators manifest after twilight. In the period since its initial released eight months ago “Dying Light” became a popular title.
New trailers, information as well as a playable demo were released by Techland. The companion DLC (Downloadable Content ) is titled “The Following” and features a new host of additions. The availability of offering “Dying Light: The Following” as a free three-hour playable demo on Steam (and twenty minutes in length on the PS4 console) is a unique marketing strategy . Techland hopes to garner new players by offering an introduction to the overall mechanics of “Dying light”.
The demo covers sections of the map titled “The Slums” and features one story-line mission and several side missions. “Dying Light: The Following” also features a multiplayer campaign for up to four players. The ability to craft and day and night cycles are also present in the playable demo. Absent from the demo “Dying Light: The Following” however is the “parkour” advantage prominent in the full length video game, “Dying Light”.
Techland, in a recent announcement regarding the “Dying Light: The Following” DLC is quoted in saying:
“For Dying Light: The Following we’re adding a number of bold game-changers to create one massive expansion. Something big that will give the game a brand-new flavor. We also kept a close eye on player feedback to help tailor what we’ve created here. Hopefully people will see that this new expansion is first and foremost, for the fans,”
