Techland is making free mod tools for Dying Light


When 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.

The story does not end there however as Techland has just announced that they will be releasing full modding tools for the game. WIll Dying Light become the next Skyrim?

(well... perhaps Zombie Skyrim)


"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."


Techland has just set up a modding forum where users can share and discuss ideas for game mod, many of which may become a reality after the modding tools are released. 

I'm sure that Dying Light's city of Harran will become an ever more popular location for gamers after these tools are released. I can imagine plenty of things that can be done with a game like Dying Light, with an excellent parkour system, complete with some Zombie goodness.
