Dying Light Patch 1.4.0 Restores Modding On PC, Fixes Graphics And Gameplay Issues
Techland has delivered plenty of exciting Dying Light news of late, announing free updates and planned DLC. Today's patch brings modding back to PC after its accidental blocking, alongside several other fixes.
Mods had unintentionally been limited by the game's last patch, leading players to think Techland was taking an ant-player stance on midifying their game. The developers cleared up the mistake, and have now enabled mods again with Patch 1.4.0. Crucially, the patch notes state that modded games will not online with those playing original non-modded versions of the game.
