Dying Light announced by Warner Bros.
What would the world be without another zombie game? Techland, developer of the Dead Island series, is not through yet with the shambling undead. In partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive, Techland will be bringing the world a new zombie horror game with the release of Dying Light.
Dying Light is being developed as a next generation title that will have a heavy focus on an in-game day and night cycle system. The press release indicates that zombies will become more aggressive at night, so exploration for survival supplies is better done during the day. At night, some other sort of creatures will join the undead and will make the world all the more dangerous.
Dying Light appears to take place in a city that was once divided by the rich and the poor, with tall buildings on the outskirts of poverty stricken shanty towns. This is something you don’t see much of: a city like this could offer up a lot of environmental variety. Visually, the game looks great. I wonder if it will be running on an updated or new version of the Dead Island engine, Chrome Engine.
Dying Light will be available next year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
