How to start Dying Light: The Following Campaign

Many Dying Light players are confused about how to start a campaign in Dying Light: The Following. Please note that The Following is separate from the main game, so to start a The Following campaign you need to go to "Play -> The Following". Here you will be able to select your save file and difficulty.

If you are facing any issues with Dying Light: The Following, share it with us in the comment section below, we will let you know how to fix that issue.


The only way I have right now to start Dying Light: The Following Campaign is this: After you have completed the downloading of the update, go to EXTRAS and download the "The Following" DLC. If you do not have the option to download The Following DLC then log into the PlayStation Store or Xbox Store online and start the download from there.

According to the report from our readers (comment section is full of it): Nothing seems to be working for anyone. After downloading the 8GB patch on PlayStation 4 (and 17GB on Xbox One), the store does not open from the game. Also, restarting does not change anything. Going to PSN store (via PS4 and even via the web) does not help as Dying Light: The Following can't be found. Accessing GAME in My LIBRARY -> Related Items list "NONE".

It seems like you guys have to be a bit more patient and wait for an update from Techland.
