When Techland announced its Dying Light expansion, The Following, it was going to cost $15 for anyone who wanted it outside the season pass–the European pricing wasn't announced. Today, the developer announced the DLC’s price is increasing to $19.99, and in the UK it will cost £15.99., but there’s still time to get it at the old price, and anyone who already bought the season pass is safe.
Why the change? I’ll let Techland explain:
Over the past weeks Dying Light: The Following has almost reached its final stage: main quests, side quests, new skills, and driving challenges are ready. We now are moving into the polishing period. Looking at it, it’s clear how big the expansion pack has grown – it could be a stand-alone title, but since it would mean a launch delay, we decided against it.
Since this is a little unexpected, Techland is letting players buy the season pass at£15.99 before it jumps to £23.99 on December 8th. So if you think you might want to play The Following, now is the time to pick it up before the price hike kicks in.
Julian tried out The Following at Gamescom this year and had an absolute blast.
Not a bad way to handle some bad news, no?
The Following is supposed to launch sometime early next year.
