Dying Light is a new survival horror game on the way from Techland (the developers behind Dead Island) and Warner Bros. Just announced today, the key concept of the title is a “portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world”.
During the day, players will be required to run around scavenging and gathering supplies, as well as exploring and crafting weapons. At night, however, the population of “infected” (which look a lot like zombies, but we’ll see) leave their hidey-holes and come out to fight, joined by “vicious predators”.
Techland are touting it as a breakthrough only possible thanks to next-gen technology in consoles, but it’s also announced for the PC so I guess that next-gen technology was there all along? Who knew! We’re also promised an innovative free-running system, which sounds delightful. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one — in the meantime, you can cast an eye over the screens below.
