Dying Light developer Techland has announced a price increase for the title’s upcoming expansion and season pass.
Previously sold for $20, Dying Light’s season pass has received a price increase to $30. The game’s upcoming expansion, The Following, has also received a price increase, going from $15 to $20. The raise in price is due to an increase in scale for the upcoming expansion.
The developer explains: “Over the past weeks, Dying Light: The Following has almost reached its final stage: main quests, side quests, new skills, and driving challenges are ready. We now are moving into the polishing period. Looking at it, it’s clear how big the expansion pack has grown — it could be a standalone title, but since it would mean a launch delay, we decided against it.”
They continue: “However, due to the increased scale of the project, we needed to revise the pricing that we announced back in August, and so we want to let you know that Dying Light: The Following will be priced at $20.”
The price change will kick in on December 8th. Those who have already purchased the DLC pass, or buy it before December 8th, will not have to pay more.
Dying Light is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The upcoming expansion, The Following, sees protagonist Kyle Crane travel to the outback, where he meets “mysterious and fanatical cultists” that have information about the zombie outbreak. The expansion adds vehicles, which are upgradable and feature their own skill tree. The expansion is expected to arrive in the window of January-March 2016.
