Techland, the Polish studio behind Dying Light and Dead Island, has revealed it is building free tools that will allow consumers to create their own content for its latest release.

Dying Light was released digitally at the end of January, with a retail release to follow by the end of the month.

The action title, which mixes zombie slaughter with parkour, has already attracted a few modders on PC, but Techland is keen to support and encourage further additions to its game.

The studio is calling on players to suggest ideas for modding tools, which Techland promises will be "free and extensive". Suggestions can be made via the official forums.

"Modders were a massive part of our gaming community since Call of Juarez 2 and Dead Island, and we wish to continue that with Dying Light," the studio said in a statement.

"This invitation is only the first stage of our co-operation with the gaming community. After the modding tools are released, we plan to actively support the coolect mods created by players."
