Dying Light Patch Removes Modding on PC [Update: Restored]

[Update 2] The folks over at Techland have released a new patch for Dying Light that adds mod support back into the game. Dubbed version 1.4.0, this new update also improves load times, overall stability, and more.

You can get the full rundown on what's included in the latest patch right here.

[Update 1] If you were disappointed by the recent patch for Dying Light that strips away mod support, you'll be pleased to know Techland is working on a fix to restore the ability.

"Creating obstacles for modders has never been our intention," Techland told Eurogamer. "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."
