When I played Dying Light for roughly 30 or 45 minutes at E3 this past June, I came away both satisfied and surprised.
I was satisfied by the gameplay in front of me, as I found it tough, rewarding and just fluid enough. I was surprised, to be completely honest, that I liked the game at all.
Dying Light is a zombie game, something I thought I swore off years ago. Here I am, totally done with the genre, and I’m really looking forward to this crazy open world romp with parkour-esque moves.\
The gameplay trailer from Gamescom 2014 above further cements that fact.
Dying Light will hit the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in February on next year. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
