Dying Light PC Mod blocking Patch was a mix-up


Last weeks patch, version 1.2.1, was released for Dying Light which among other things restricted the ability for players to mod the game, this has been confirmed to be a "mix-up" by Techland. The patch was intended to stop cheating in the games multiplayer mode, which unfortunately prevented the use of game mods and tweaking of some of the game files. 

The polish developer now plans to quickly make up a patch that will allow users to make edits or tweaks while also preventing cheating in the games multiplayer mode. In other words re-enable modding.


"With the recent patch (1.2.1) on Steam we blocked cheating to make sure the game's PvP system (Be The Zombie) would not be abused. This, however, had the side-effect of hindering mod-makers from making changes to the game."

"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."

"At Techland, we have always supported the mod community, and loved seeing how our own game can be changed by the players. A big part of the original Dead Island's success was the passion and creativity of mod-makers from our community. We want the same for Dying Light."

We all know that mods can be a very important part of a games longevity, just ask the many thousands of people who still play Skyrim. Hopefully Techland will continue to embrace modding like they have in their previous games like Dead Island.  

Being a single player game, it is hopeful that Techland will allow further modding of Dying light in the future, perhaps by disabling the games online features while playing a modded version of the game.
