Techland, the developers behind the recently released zombie game, Dying Light, are encouraging their fans to mod the heck out of their game. In fact, they want you to so bad, they took time out of their day to put out a press release just to tell you how much they enjoy mods, and that they would like it if you all created some. To help facilate this desire, Techland is working on free modding tools to provide for PC players
The release of Dying Light has already been met an amazing positive response from gamers around the globe. In their excitement, many PC players have already been creating mods that alter and revamp the game. At Techland, we want to see more! As a sandbox game,Dying Light is a perfect material for modding. This is why we are currently working on free and extensive modding tools for the game. And we want players to tell what they would like to see.
We’re inviting all Dying Light players to visit our official discussion board and share their mod ideas – no matter how crazy – with us here
Modders were a massive part of our gaming community since Call of Juarez 2 and Dead Island – and we wish to continue that with Dying Light. This invitation is only the first stage of our cooperation with the gaming community. After the modding tools are released, we plan to actively support the coolest mods created by players.
We want to give creative freedom to the players to help keep Dying Light fresh and interesting even many years after their release. We want to thank players for the support they have shown us and are looking forward to their ideas where Dying Light can go from here.
There are games that thrive on PC solely because of a strong modding community. Popular games such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto IV extended their time in the spotlight by years thanks to mods. It should come as no surprise then that Techland wants to go out of their way to cultivate their own modding community. We’ll check back in a couple years to see if the effort pays off, and we’re talking about Dying Light and its crazy mods.
