The ability to mod Techland’s survival horror game “Dying Light” is now fully enabled for the PC version. This is great news, since modding is one of the most popular reasons players purchase PC games. Users who have the same mods already installed in "Dying Light" will have the ability to play one another online.
Techland’s PC patch 1.4 introduced a number of changes and improvements to the game, including the removal of the infinite spit glitch in the popular “Be the Zombie” mode.

The zombie apocalypse title is set in an open-world environment similar to South American slums and cities. During the day, players explore a massive urban landscape plagued by a malicious outbreak of the undead, searching and scavenging for supplies they can take back to safe zones. They can also create traps and save other survivors. At night, the infected enemies become more aggressive, gaining the ability to chase and harm players.
The game is told from a first-person perspective. Players can equip themselves with weapons like a spiked baseball bat, a pistol and an electric ax. They can also swim through water, climb walls and explore the rooftops of buildings.
“Dying Light” was originally scheduled for release on five platforms, including the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the game’s last-generation versions were canceled last October.
