Try saying that five times fast.

We first heard about Dying Light during E3, but there has been little on it since then. Basically Dead Island with parkour, Dying Light switches out the crazy brutality for something a little more muted – and by all appearances a good bit more frightening. As any horror fan will tell you, games can only be scary when you are weak – and in Dying Light Techland appears to have learned this lesson well.
Things remain relatively normal during the day time part of the video – the focus is apparently more on avoiding zombies than wading through body parts, but it’s by no means unsettling. Once night descends at the seven minute mark however, that changes. The zombies begin turning into faster, more horrifying things – mostly human, but with some very unnatural (and cthulu-esque) features.
Watch the video below and see what you think – I was madly disappointed with Riptide, but I’m definitely willing to give Techland another shot at an open world zombie game if they want to add a little horror to it. Now we just need a release date more specific than ’2014′.
