With Dying Light now well and truly entrenched in my top ten games of all time, I’ve been fantasising about The Following since I first heard about it; buggies, a huge new map and the appearance of bizarre cults, it sounded too good to be true. I’d have sold the world to get it, I’d have started a war to get it, a war that nobody wanted, just to own The Following, but then I ain’t Tony Blair, I don’t love George W’s rusty sheriff and I certainly didn’t finger bang Rupert Murdoch’s wife. So did I have to do to get it? Nothing, as it turns out. I imagine that you’ll be as pleased as I was to discover that The Following is free to existing season pass holders, and even if you don’t own it, the season pass is only priced at a mere £23.99 anyway. Bargain!
The Following DLC is massive; the map is simply gargantuan and every time you go out into it you find even more areas to explore, and additional stuff to find, with the same great game play that I would obviously expect from Dying Light. To be able to change from a busy rundown urban environment filled with obstacles to a huge open rural world with vehicles, you’d expect there to be many things that are just ok, but The Following is a solid enjoyable and quality release that ticks all the right boxes, Techland has really raised the bar with this DLC, it could easily be of been a standalone title and it would still have been great value for money. And as if that wasn’t enough, Techland have also stated that Dying Light will also be the recipient of a further 12 months’ worth of support and additional content, which is rather refreshing and bucks the trend of late.
