Critic Reviews for Dying Light: The Following

Dying Light: The Following manages to include a new fun-filled environment to explore along with a vehicle to do so that mesh together well with a story that's slow to start but ends with a powerful punch.

A big 'ol chunk of game with a lot of things to do, and just as importantly, new ways to do them.​

Dying Light's outdoorsy expansion flees the city but delivers the same mix of dogged charm and compulsion.

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.

Dying Light's latest DLC supplements the full game's first-person parkour with customizable dirt buggies, drastically different environments, and a conspiracy-driven mystery.

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.

The Following was larger than I expected, and it maintains a high level of quality throughout. Being pared down from the bloat of Dying Light earns it more moment-to-moment excitement, and I greedily consumed it over the weekend. The last few minutes have me pondering the future of what's clearly going to become a franchise, and I'm ready for whatever Techland brings next.

With an overly competitive market of zombie games such as Dead Island, Dead Rising, and Telltale's The Walking Dead, Dying Light: The Following steals the show for being a well-rounded zombie action game, featuring tight combat and a knack for intense storytelling that is sure to leave you shaking at the edge of your seat. Regardless of a few underlying faults with character development and the occasional fetch quests, Dying Light: The Following is undoubtedly among the best story-mode expansions I have ever played. I can't wait to continue my exploration and see what else Techland have up their sleeves.
