Dying Light

Save Files Location

Dying light, a video game that sets itself in the horror action-adventure market, has received a mixed response from players with a review score of 70% on PC Gamer and 7/10 on GameSpot. Although players have spoken positively on its plot, graphics and tutorial, they have also been quick to criticise its slow mechanics and poor animations.

Set in an open world environment in a fantasy middle-eastern country called ‘Haran’, players take on the role of a secret agent ‘Kyle Crane’ from a first person perspective. As a zombie survival game with a day-night cycle in which the zombies become a lot more prominent in the dark, players must be tactical and use their weapons to survive and progress through the different levels of gameplay.

Dying light was developed by Techland, who are also known for games such as Call of Juarez and Dead Island. It was first released on 26th January 2015, however fans are now awaiting the release of its Sequel: Dying Light 2, which is expected to be available in 2020.

Step-by-Step Help

If you need more help with that, don't panic! We have laid out step-by-step help below.

First, go to your Steam library folder. By default this is at:

Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam

Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam (open up a Finder window and press COMMAND + SHIFT + G and paste this in to access it)

Linux: ~/.steam/steam

If your Steam library folder isn't there, follow this guide to locate it, and then return here.

Once in your Steam library folder:

  1. Go into the userdata folder
  2. Then, go into the folder named after your SteamID3 (if there's just one folder that's a bunch of numbers, it'll be that one) - search online for a SteamID3 finder if you aren't sure what your SteamID3 is
  3. Once in the SteamID3 folder, just go through these folders: 239140 > remote > out > save
