Why Dying Light: The Following DLC Became an Instant Classic

The zombie genre has seen a variety of games over the past few years, but Techland’s Dying Light offered a fresh take on the familiar formula. Released in 2015, Dying Light helped to alleviate zombie fatigue with its challenging open-world environment and a fluctuating day-night cycle. Players could traverse the urban environments with ease thanks to the dynamic parkour and had a few options when it came to either fighting off the undead hordes or fleeing across the rooftops.
