The latest Dying Light patch brings back modding and multiplayer changes


The latest Dying Light patch update allows players to mod the game – even online.

TechLand received a lot of backlash online for their last update. Now the developers apologized for blocking mods, saying it was all an accident, going on to announce full modding tools on the forum. And, TechLand is also pushing out free expansions, including a new hard mode.

According to the patch notes below, players who have exactly the same mods installed will be able to play together online, but otherwise, you will need to go vanilla to get your multiplayer going.

One of the other major changes is an end to the infinite spit exploit in Be-the-Zombie mode and the low-res texture bug has been squashed.
