Techland has announced Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition is scheduled to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 9th, 2016.

The game will include an enhanced version of the original Dying Light, The Following expansion pack, all previously-released downloadable content, including The Bozak Horde mode, the Be the Zombie mode, the Cuisine & Cargo challenge missions, and the Ultimate Survivor Bundle, and all content updates released to date.

“We didn’t want to follow a beaten track and just re-release our game in a new wrapping with the current DLC added on," explains Maciej Binkowski, lead game designer. “That’s why for the last half year we’ve been working on a ton of enhancements that we’re now going to make available to everyone. We’re adding bonus post-game content, a Nightmare difficulty level, nearly 100 new animations, new NPC models, advanced AI behaviors, and more. One year after the original release, Dying Light will be even bigger.”

In addition to Binkowski’s statement, the reveal trailer also mentions the addition of Legend Levels, new parkour moves, a bounties system, a greater variety in firearms, new enemy attacks & behaviors, console performance upgrades, and more.

Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition will release on February 9th, 2016 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for $59.99. Those who own Dying Light will receive all of the mentioned improvements and would just need to purchase The Following separately if they want to enjoy the complete package.

      Amazing that the guys are doing this and that the enhanced edition will be free for current users. Dying Light could easily be GOTY 2015.

      Love the game can not wait for the update it looks really good and all the rad additions and updates.

        Man I do do not think it comes anywhere close to being a GotY contender for this year. I found that the gameplay got stale fairly quickly and the world/story were pretty boring. It is cool that they are supporting current owners however.

      Wow, this is pretty cool. I'm glad those of us who already purchased it get all this stuff for free too. These guys and CD Projekt Red renew my faith in game devs.

      Am I reading the article correctly - existing owners get all of the paid DLC (e.g. Bozak Horde) minus The Following?

      Those who own Dying Light will receive all of the mentioned improvements and would just need to purchase The Following separately if they want to enjoy the complete package.

        I don't think so. The DLC has to be purchased separately. The main game engine, quest, ai improvements will be free to all.

          That's what I thought, the wording just seemed weird.
