Here’s 12 minutes of Dying Light

dyinglight

Techland, the guys who made zombie-slashing action RPG Dead Island are busy readying up a whole new zombie game, but this one’s more of a first-person survival horror. It has an expansive urban environment to explore, and has players scavenging for supplies to survive – with a bit of Mirror’s Edge-styled free-running thrown in for good measure. It also looks really, really good. Here’s 12 minutes of it for your grim enjoyment.

Dying light is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC at some point next year. Pretty sure this footage is from the PC version. What do you think? Is the zombie genre done to death or is this something you’d be interested in?

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    This may be the first zombie game I’ll be interested in buying. The free running element makes it look extremely fun.

    Fresh take on an overused genre, looks awesome, what dead island should of been.

  • A 2 Brute?

    Wow, looks incredible! Can’t wait to play it! On a side note, the big tank zombie thing reminds of a beserker from Gears of War.

  • Brenz

    Looks pretty awesome, nice new feel on the zombie genre, i hope the world is as open as it seems on the video, with freedom to choose your path instead of being led by obstacles.

  • Seeker

    Wow! Looks like Mirror’s Edge just got zombies.
