Dying Light is an upcoming open world zombie survival game from the folks at Techland. That’s the same studio that brought us the Dead Island franchise.
The thing that makes Dying Light unique, aside from it’s next-gen graphics, is that it combines the open world and zombie motifs that we’re used to seeing in this genre with Mirror’s Edge-esque parkour gameplay. From combat to traversal, the game moves a lot like Faith’s glorious romp that released so many years ago.
I know I can safely say that I’ve grown really tired of the zombie slaying genre. It’s one that I’ve seen enough of to last me a good long time. But, when Techland decided to go all parkour in the arena of movement and fighting, consider my interest piqued.
Dying Light will drop for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms some time in 2014. If the nine minute gameplay video at the head of this post is any indication, it looks like it’ll be a blast.
