Set in a map that is twice as large as the two previous maps of Dying Light The Following gameplay is similar to that of the main game where the infected are slow and fragile during daytime and become aggressive and fast at night time. Players can use parkour movements such as climbing ledges leaping sliding, jumping and zip lining to move between places and kill enemies. One of the new features introduced is a drivable dune buggy. Players can use them to travel across the games world quickly and mow down enemies. It has its own separate skill tree and weapons including spikes, flamethrowers UV lights, electrical cages and other upgrades can be added to the buggy to increase its combat abilities. The buggys performance and efficiency are affected by factors including the power of its suspension engine and brakes. Players can also choose from 40 different paintjobs to customize their car, and must collect fuel in order to drive the buggy.
The game features several new weapons such as a crossbow and a variety of new firearms such as submachine guns and revolvers. A new bounty mode, which split missions into three different categories Basic Dailies, and Community. is introduced. The missions and objectives included in this mode change every day and players gain experience points by completing them. The game also features a new difficulty mode named Nightmare Mode, which extends the duration of nighttime, and increases the strength and health of enemies.
The-Following was developed by Techland and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. According to lead designer Maciej Binkowski the team decided to implement dune buggy into The Following as they felt that it was a fantasy of the zombie genre and they missed the opportunity when developing the base game. The process of implementing them was described as hard, as they must ensure that the new system must work functionally with other gameplay mechanics, most notably the parkour system. The development team looked at players feedback and requests regarding the first Dying Light and decided to add the most demanded features including a new story and new firearms to the game. The new campaign lasts for at least ten hours, and centers around the theme mystery. Gameplay elements from The-Following were originally part of the core Dying Light game, but were later left behind as the core game was becoming too large for the team to handle. According to Binkowski, the development of the game continued after the release of the first game, and numerous improvements were made to the parkour system, animation, artificial intelligence and graphics.
In May 2015, it was announced that the development of another Techland video game, Hellraid, had been put on hold so as to allow the studio to allocate resources and time to concentrate on the development of the Dying Light franchise. The game was teased by Techland on July 23, 2015, before being officially announced a week later.To reflect the increased scope and scale of the expansion Techland raised the game price on November 25 2015. Although the game can be bought separately, it was included in (Dying Light The-Following) Enhanced Edition which bundles The-Following with the base game and its downloadable content Players of the original game can upgrade to the Enhanced Edition for free. The-Following is also free for players who have purchased the base game Season Pass. The Enhanced Edition were released onFebruary 9, 2016.
