Dying Light: The Following Review

Dying Light The Following is the perfect example of how to offer DLC. About 12 months after the original game and this parkour zombie action game still feels fresh thanks to some serious expansions to the already exciting gameplay. 

Adding a huge new world to run around, this new countryside setting is a stark contrast to the the crammed city streets of Harran, jumping from rooftops now playing second fiddle to a new vehicle, a buggy that enables you to traverse the farm lands in relative safety, running over anything stupid enough to get in your way. With a wealth of new weapons (including a crossbow), missions, behemoth zombies and lots more collectables this game is so enjoyable that you won't want to put it down.

It has to be said that most of the fun from Dying Light comes in co-op mode, with a buddy to help you out and some fantastic ways to play together. No only does having someone to cover your back make things less tense, but thanks to mini missions and races within the main game you won't want to put down what is a fantastic addition to a title that is quite frankly one of the best games of last year.

The buggies are perhaps one of the most fun additions to the game, allowing you to mow down zombies without much effort, well except at night time when things become a little more chaotic. You can even upgrade your buggies, so what's not to love about that? What's also great is that you can swap between the main game and The Following, taking both your character and any equipment you have earned along with you, although not the buggies unfortunately, not that they would do you much good in the main game anyway. 

Honestly, if you are yet to jump into Dying Light then now really is the perfect time. It's one of the best games we have played on PS4 and Xbox One. Don't miss it.
