Dying Light: Enhanced Edition will be free for owners of the base game (minus the expansion)

Chris liked Dying Light well enough, and I did too, back at the lovely Rely on Horror. I haven't played it since it released earlier this year, but the way Techland is handling the new Enhanced Edition is compelling me to jump bac...   read

Please send Dying Light devs your zombie apocalypse erotica

If you want to accuse me of thinking that Techland tries waaaaay too hard sometimes, I'm guilty, guilty, guilty. Lock me up and throw away the key. For every fine example of continued support for the community, there's a dumb marketing...   read

Techland says it'd take over Dead Island 2 if asked

The status of Dead Island 2 is up in the air after publisher Deep Silver took developer Yager off the project last month. Chances are that it's not dead given that Deep Silver has already sunk money into the project and it's one of the...   read

Dying Light sells 5 million copies, sequel already being teased

Dying Light was bloody brilliant. Sure, the main story was generic soldier wank that I mostly ignored, but the side missions were incredible and simply running around the city was so much fun. I’m not entirely sure about the new expan...   read

Dying Light takes jab at Destiny, rehydrates userbase

Techland is doing its damnedest to take the piss out of Destiny. You know, that "wow, this is really yellow, actually it's almost orange; this cannot be good for my kidneys" piss. It's running a similar drink-based promotion, and this ...   read

Hellraid totally isn't cancelled

When a game is announced to be “on hold” or “on hiatus,” we usually just take that to mean it has been cancelled. Prey 2 was put “on hold,” and that still breaks my small, withered heart. I’m able t...   read

Dying Light enabling wacky ragdoll physics for April Fools' Day

For April Fools' Day tomorrow, Techland is bringing extra floaty physics to its open-world zombie-slaying game Dying Light, which has me wondering, why isn't that a permanent cheat code? This is the sort of thing, weird and small as it mig...   read

Dying Light just made surviving the zombie apocalypse a whole lot tougher

When it comes to zombie outbreaks, it'd be foolish to go looking for a challenge. The easier you have it, the better. Why make a mockery of fate and scream "Come at me, bro?" It may be ill-advised, but Techland's giving those very fools a ...   read
