Deathmatch Mode Comes to Dying Light & Future Plans

Techland expanded Steam Workshop’s Dying Light Dev Tools with the cooperation and player-vs-player functionalities.

This free update opens up completely new creative options for players, who can now design cooperation-based scenarios and deathmatch maps.

The update launches alongside PvP-focused custom map ‘Don’t Drown’ created by RabidSquirrel, an active member of the Dying Light community. The map is set in an island and features ever-rising water level to keep the combatants motivated. ‘Don’t Drown’ has players explore the island and avoid zombies in search for powerful weapons which they can then use to take on one another.

‘Just like with the main game we’ve been supporting the Dev Tools for almost a year now, and we’ve already seen amazingly creative stuff from our fans’ – says producer Tymon Smektała. – ‘We believe the co-op and PvP support can inspire a new wave of original maps for everyone to enjoy. At the same time, we’re working hard to bring some the very best custom maps to consoles, and I hope we’ll have something to announce soon.
