Polish developer Techland has announced that it's raising the price of Dying Light's Season Pass on December 8th

So ambitious is the latest piece of downloadable content for Polish studio Techland's zombie romp, Dying Light, that the studio has announced it's going to be increasing the price of the game's season pass in order to accommodate it. As things stand right now, the season pass can be picked up for €19.99, but on December 8th, that'll increase to €29.99. Those of you who have already purchased the season pass can be safe in the knowledge that you'll be completely unaffected, and will be able to download the forthcoming The Following DLC as soon as it launches, while those of you who haven't yet pulled the trigger have a couple of weeks to do so before the price increase kicks in.

In a statement, the studio announced the increase as follows:

Due to the increased scale of the project, we needed to revise the pricing that we announced back in August. We didn’t want this to come as a surprise to you, so we’re announcing it in advance. This price change will not affect players who already own the Season Pass.

So what's the big deal about The Follow that justifies this price bump? Well, according to Techland, it's apparently got enough content within it to be a standalone game, which is a pretty decent starting point! Features of the DLC include:

New Map | As Big as Dying Light You’ll get thrust into a hazardous outback overrun by the infected and populated by pockets of survivors who consider outsiders just as threating. With a map the size of Old Town and The Slums combined, Dying Light: the Following is choke full of new environments, characters, quests, and secrets to discover.

Drivable Vehicles | Your Deadliest Weapon Yet All-terrain dirt buggies are going to be your key tool to survival. Level up your new Driver Rank skill tree and upgrade your ride to create your most deadly and effective weapon yet. Fully customizable with specialized weapons, attachments, decals and paint jobs, your buggy is going to be your one-way ticket to zombie smashing mayhem.

New Story | Where Will the Outbreak Go? Players will again take the role of Kyle Crane, and will be thrown into Harran’s outback region, rife with the infected, where they’ll encounter a mysterious, and seemingly all-powerful cult, capable of changing the face of Dying Light’s world.

Non-Linear Progression | Trust is Something You Earn Take control of your fate and tackle the missions laid before you as you choose. When and which tasks you take on is entirely up to you. But as you earn more trust, you’ll be granted more imperative quests along with access to dark cult secrets which will help unravel the mystery that has taken hold of this once serene land.
