Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition

Overview -

'The Following' is an expansion to zombie freerunner 'Dying Light', released last year by Techland. It can be purchased by itself, or progress can be carried over from the standard release (the expansion is also part of the season pass). 'The Following' has its own map and campaign that take places outside of the city of Harran.

Along with the debut of 'The Following,' Techland has released some updates to the base game. Bundle the base game, the free updates, and 'The Following' expansion together, and the result is the 'Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition.'

Video Review


This map is not as dense as Harran, so it’s mostly farms and fields. Smaller changes have been added, like additional parkour animations. Otherwise, it still looks a lot like 'Dying Light'. Draw distance could be a bit longer, especially when the buggy’s engines have been upgraded, but it’s not a huge issue. Motion blur is heavy when driving, and the framerate tends to drop when going full speed.

Audio Review


The creepy soundtrack from Pawel Blaszczak is still very effective, particularly at night. The voice actors are competent, if not particularly memorable. The dune buggy sounds nice, even if I avoided it.

Final Thoughts

'The Following' is the kind of expansion that by today's publishing standards could have easily been labeled as a sequel and given a higher price tag. It doesn’t get everything right, but still has a lot to offer.
