Dying Light: The Following's turning out bigger than expected, so the price is going up

Dying Light (opens in new tab)'s big DLC expansion is getting more expensive, but you can still grab the all-inclusive Season Pass ahead of time at the original price. Developer Techland sent out a letter to players as a simultaneous heads-up of and justification for The Following's slightly steeper price tag.

Dying Light: The Following (opens in new tab) was originally going to be sold on its own for $15, or as part of the $20 / £15.99 Season Pass. Techland says the expansion, which takes place in a vast wilderness full of new missions and zombie-proofed buggies, has grown into a bigger product than it initially planned. Rather than convert it into a standalone expansion and keep fans waiting, Techland decided to just bump the price up accordingly.

After December 8, the Season Pass will start selling for $30/£23.99, but you can pick it up for the original price before then (or if you already bought it, you're set). The Following will now cost $19.99 / £15.99 on its own when it comes out in the first quarter of 2016.
