In a pleasing turn of events, Techland has responded to a huge flood of reports that websites have been piggy-backing on claiming that the Dying Light developer was taking a stand against mods. Today, on their own Official Dying Light Steam Page, the development studio has taken the time out to assure gamers that they are indeed still for the gamer, and pro-modding. The reason why mods were temporarily removed from the game was due to player vs player integrity of the game being jeopardized by cheaters. Techland will introduce a new patch that re-enables modding and hopefully at the same time keeps the few bad apples who ruined the bunch out of cheating during PvP of Dying Light.
Techland’s Full Statement Below:
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.
At Techland, we have always supported the mod community, and loved seeing how our own game can be changed by the players. A big part of the original Dead Island’s success was the passion and creativity of mod-makers from our community. We want the same for Dying Light. For quite some time, we have been working, and still are, on giving modders all the power we can. We will keep you updated!”
