Dying Light Will Re-Enable Mods With New Patch

By   /   Feb 2, 2015

Techland has addressed growing rumors that the developer is going against its original word and is now standing against mods in Dying Light.

In an official statement posted on the game’s Steam page, Techland assured fans that the rumors don’t hold any water.

The reason modding support was taken away was because some folks were able to take advantage of illegal mods and cheat their way in PvP scenarios. The removal though is temporary. Modding will be re-enabled soon with the release of a new patch that will do away with cheats, along with adding a bunch of other improvements.

“With the recent patch (1.2.1) on Steam we blocked cheating to make sure the game’s PvP system (Be The Zombie) would not be abused. This, however, had the side-effect of hindering mod-makers from making changes to the game.

Creating obstacles for modders has never been our intention, and we are sorry for the inconvenience. We are now working on a quick patch that will re-enable common tweaks while stopping cheating in the game’s multiplayer mode.”

Techland cited the success of the original Dead Island, saying that they fully believe in the passion of the mod-making community and Dying Light will not be taking that away from them.
