Dying Light developer Techland issued a press release last night confirming that the rumored bans of Dying Light mods were indeed false and that modders are an integral part of their gaming community. Techland had previously been caught up in rumors of DMCAs issued against modders and streamers removing the film grain effect from the game. Techland’s press release detailed the upcoming modding tools as well their commitment to modders and modifications for their products.
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 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 also issued a call for all players to visit the official discussion board to share any and all mod ideas “no matter how crazy.” If the depths of SkyrimNexus or FalloutNexus are any indications, Techland might have just opened Pandora’s box. Dying Light is a recently published sandbox zombie survival game, and you can read our full review here.
