    So, this is losing its popularity then...

    Hi Rogsr35uk, thanks for giving your feedback on the game. And nice work on getting all but one of the Trophies. We're working on the next update right now and that's going to be available later this month. In that we're adding a load of new machines for free and we've also completely rewritten the worker AI system from scratch, because we know that it has been problematic for many players. So I just want you to know that we're still going to be supporting the game and our ears are open to feedback. Now go do the challenges and get the Platinum!

    Gun Silencer available now

    Update your game and go to your Quartermaster to get the free Gun Silencer Blueprints — which have been added to Dying Light by popular demand. The silencer doesn’t break and it has no cool down, so you can use it as much as you like. It does require special Subsonic Ammo, which you can find by looting police vans around Harran.
  3. Hey everyone, Towards the end of last year we asked for your feedback on the general balance of Be the Zombie mode. We were hearing that you felt the Night Hunter was underpowered, but we wanted hear your specific points on what you'd like to see us change. Thanks for all of your input - based on what you told us we have made some changes to BtZ. These changes are now live: Drop Attack (AKA 'Death from Above') Height required increased Grab distance reduced UV Flashlight Distance reduced (in 2 vs. 1 to 4 vs. 1 matches) Cool down time increased Initial cost increased (so that flicking the flashlight on and off repeatedly drains it more quickly) Spits Explosion radius increased Explosion delay reduced Effect duration for Control The Horde and Light Disable increased Cool down times decreased (in 3 vs. 1 and 4 vs. 1 matches) Survivor Sense Night Hunter now appears on Survivors' mini-map(s) for less time Misc. Auto-balance reduced overall. We hope these changes make Btz even more enjoyable for everyone and, of course, please let us know what you think. James

  5. Hey everyone, By now you may have seen videos based on a preview version of the game we shared with a few YouTubers familiar with the farming genre. If you haven't seen those, take a look at the links at the bottom of this post. We'd love to get your feedback based on what you've seen in those videos. Anything you liked or didn't like, or just think should be a little different - we want to hear it. All of your feedback will be taken on board by the dev team so this is a chance to let us know what you think we should focus on. Of course, we'll also be listening to your feedback through launch and beyond. Thank you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb_rBnV9Tjw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xWg5LNMTV0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7E_yEGqdro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtPAY1e4vU0&feature=youtu.be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXwF0QSkzm0&t=1020s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfjwQ1nqnRA&t=691s

    Console update 1.1.4 out now

    That means we have tweaked things like prices, growing times etc. to improve the overall balance of the gameplay.
  8. Over the weekend we released two updates for consoles. Unfortunately, there are still some issues that we are working hard to fix. We’ll be releasing another update to address everything you’re reporting to us. In the meantime: - Please be sure to manually check for the latest update via your console’s home menu. The emergency update we released on Saturday may not have automatically downloaded. - While we are working on a solution to fix issues with existing save games, you may find that starting a new game works better for the time being. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We’re doing everything we can to make sure the game is to the standard it needs to be.

    PS4 version is fucked. Wish i could get my money back.

    There are a few factors, such as submission times so I can't put a timeframe on it right now I'm afraid. It will simply be as soon as possible, though I appreciate that's not very informative

    PS4 version is fucked. Wish i could get my money back.

    We are working on the next patch guys, please bear with us. As mentioned on here, you may find that things are better if you start a new game. We're working on a solution so that all fixes will apply to save files from before the patch, and that will hopefully come in the next update.

    PS4 Fixes/Suggestions

    Thank you for the suggestions. We're taking everything on board and FYI sweet pickles, in the next update on consoles we'll be fixing crashing issues, adding a real time mode and making some improvements to workers.

    Weather forecasts

    Thanks for the suggestion guys. One little indicator is that it will always get cloudy before rainfall, but I appreciate it would be nice to have a more obvious kind of forecast.

    Keyboard steering sensitivity?

    Great to hear that, thank you!

    Absolutely unplayable on PS4, save data corruption

    Hi guys, I'm sorry to hear this. We are working to release an update that will fix the crashing issues asap. Can you please raise a support ticket at http://support.techland.pl/support/tickets/new - our team will investigate this and hopefully find a solution.
  24. Here's your first look at how modding will work in Pure Farming 2018 on PC. Get creative with your preferred 3D software and add your own tractors, harvesters, trailers, trucks and more to the game. Look out for more updates on our plans for modding tools after launch.

    PS4 Pro problems and some general questions

    Hi guys, there's no difference in price based on where you sell it, apart from you get less if you sell via the tablet. Overall prices for each crop change over the course of the game, and can be checked in the Stock Market section of the tablet.
