Find your humanity in Dying Light

Ed!

When the zombie apocalypse finally hits, I recommend staying far away from me. Not because of the fact that I’m likely to be chowed on pretty soon after the outbreak, but because I’m more than willing to take a cricket bat and bash in some human skulls in order to survive said doomsday scenario. Am I losing my humanity? Buddy, it vanished a long time ago, much like it did in Dying Light.

Here’s the latest trailer from Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Dying Light, aptly titled ‘Humanity.’ APT I SAY! It’s all about the survivors of the apocalypse, or as my copied and pasted press release puts it:

Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released today a new trailer for Dying Light entitled “Humanity”. It shows the horrible reality of living in a zombie infested quarantine zone and how it changes people inside.

Dying Light’s “Humanity” trailer shifts focus from the infected to the survivors – people who had enough strength and luck to endure the outbreak. Yet, the worst is not over as in the quarantine zone every day is a struggle and every night is a challenge. Sadly, human mind can withstand only so much.

In what ways does the quarantine zone influence you? Does killing the infected really leave no trace on your mind? How long can you defend your humanity? What will happen when you eventually break?

I’m honestly looking forward to this game. My once pristine white undies are sporting 50 shades of brown at the shift between night and day, as the setting sun throws deadly undead obstacles at your way. I’ve loved the work that Techland has done so far with zombie games, such as Dead Island, which was a fun game with friends, but severely lacking on the single-player side.

Hopefully, Dying Light can find the balance between the two sides of the apocalypse when it shambles in later this year for PC, PlayStation 4,PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    WAIT……..How come I didn’t know this game is coming to current gen?…..This was one of the few games that would’ve made go next gen

    • TiMsTeR1033

      It’s coming out on current gen?

      • VampyreSquirrel

        That’s what he said

        • TiMsTeR1033

          you meant *she

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            No, Darryn is a real boy.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            What Trevor said

      • http://www.lazygamer.net/ The D

        Yep! I double-checked, and it is both a new and current-gen game.

        • TiMsTeR1033

          Surely on current gen will look alot worse though

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            Lol. You and current gen looking a lot worse. Of course it’s going to! It doesn’t use ‘the cloud!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I don’t want it to be shit, I don’t want half arsed port with shitty textures.

        • Umar Reborn

          So Zwei is current gen, Dying Light is current gen, MGS is current gen,Murdered Soul is current gen, TitanFall is current gen…What exactly is there to make one go next gen then?So far I only see Infamous as a ‘true’ next gen attraction….

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Witcher 3?

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            Just finished Witcher 2 (last night) and am really sad 3 isn’t out yet.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Start 2 again… there are a few more endings :P

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I still really need to get Witcher 2 from you, if it would actually work though..

          • VampyreSquirrel

            No faith… none… so sad :( :P

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I had faith, then Nick said somestuff on Fb I can’t remember but won’t be so easy to just put onto my console..

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            Yes, I believe so. Though right now I am downloading Metro: Last Nights and have yet to get into Sleeping Dogs and Red Dead! No time!

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Yeah… know how you feel. I’m still trying to get into Hitman Absolution, and have to get a few games downloaded onto the 360 too.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Odd Question, I know may sound dumb, but can you buy games from Xbox live with a debit card or all credit?

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I THINK debit cards work… but will check quickly and confirm.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            any luck?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            #foreverSP

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I know that’s your way of life man.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Looks like Credit cards only.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            You really need to play Red dead buddy! its the one game you NEED to play before you die! for the story alone, yes it has aged abit but a great game, wish I didn’t trade mine in, I wanted to play it again other day. lol

          • TiMsTeR1033

            why you sad, you don’t even have a next gen console yet. That would prob make you want to go get one though am I right?

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I’d totally get a PS4 just for the Witcher 3

          • TiMsTeR1033

            It looks beautiful. Id get Ps4 for that and infamous

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            To be honest no. I am not ready to go next gen yet.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Still too many great games on current, or lack of cashflow?

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            I want to wait till there is a larger base of games and wait till they sort all the bugs out. Also there are plenty games on the PS3 I want, still need a PS3!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            So I am not alone, good to know that I indeed want the Ps3 games I missed.

          • http://www.lazygamer.net/ The D

            Fair enough! There’s no immediate rush at all, but it’s just nice to have that option. My PS4 is quickly becoming my default console now, much to the dismay of my Xbox 360.

          • Umar Reborn

            True that, I can understand, owning a vita, 3ds, xbox , ps3 , wiiU and PC lol It’s just, a really really expensive option, right now at least. Not trying to be negative, just, you know. I wana see some real next gen action, or more of it, like The Division

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I don’t know when last I saw you online on your Xbox… but some could say the same about me lol

          • RinceandLeSIGH

            Indeed! :) And yes, download the gold game, I have it, Werner and Andre are also getting it.

      • Umar Reborn

        Yebo….so it seems

    • Rock789

      Yup, it’s coming to current and ‘new-gen’. And I must say – the PS4 gameplay trailer they released a few months ago looks REALLY good! This is definitely on my “To get” list.

      • Umar Reborn

        Yeah true, but I really thought this was next gen only. Might as well get it on current gen

      • RinceandLeSIGH

        Can you imagine what it would look like? And can you imagine the 7.1 surround sound… Oh, wait… *RUNS

  • Hammersteyn

    Who here played that game during school recess. I think it was called open the gates. You start with one guy in the middle. He picks someone and that guy has to run past him. If he is caught then there’s two in the middle. If he gets through everyone runs to the other side.
    Perfect training for the Zombie Apocalypse

    • DarthofZA

      I loved Open Gates!!!! thanks for bringing back fond memories.

    • Rock789

      Oh yeah… Played that a bunch. Although we usually upped the ante and the person in the middle had a tennis ball to help him ‘convert’ the person called through. :)

  • Acornbread

    I really hope the single-player is good, this game looks so promising.

  • RinceandLeSIGH

    I want! “My once pristine white undies are sporting 50 shades of brown at the shift between night and day” I really didn’t see that you wrote SHIFT until I stared at that for a bit longer…

    • Hammersteyn

      Ive heard of Fifty Shades of Grey but brown??? O_o

    • TiMsTeR1033

      1 shade of brown for everynight! hahaha

  • Martin du preez

    The end was messed up. Machete..looking at a child.
    Pre order canceled. Wait,I don’t have it pre ordered..will order then cancel it.
