The latest Patch for the PC version of Dying Light now allows Mod support as well as giving several performance optimisations which include significantly reduced ram usage. There is also an option to disable the "film Grain" video affect in the game.    

Earlier this month Techland released a controversial patch which disabled game modding, which was a move which annoyed many gamers. Techland later issued a response saying that the patch was to prevent cheating in the game's "be the zombie" mode and was not intended to prevent game modding. Later Techland even issued a press release saying that they would create full modding tools for the game.

This was a statement issued by Techland;


"Creating obstacles for modders has never been our intention. We are now working on a quick patch that will re-enable common tweaks while stopping cheating in the game's multiplayer mode,” 


Dying Light PC Mod blocking Patch was a mix-up.


In Techland’s summary of the new PC patch (1.4) they say that modding is now fully enabled. Now Players who have the same mods installed will be allowed to play with or against each other online.

Players will not be able to connect to each other without the same mod installed for game balance reasons.

As well as the addition of mod support the patch also adds an option to disable the game's "film Grain" video effect as well as bring in a lot of small performance optimisations. The patch will also greatly reduce the amount of system memory (ram) used by the game.

Techland wishes the future modders of the game great success and hope that it will greatly reduce the future sales of the game.


"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."
