New Dying Light gameplay video extols the virtues of getting home before curfew

dying-light-bannerHey, are you doing anything for the next ten minutes?  No?  Cool, then I would strongly suggest checking out this new gameplay video of Dying Light. Turns out there’s a lot more going on in this open world zombie bashing game than bashing zombies.  Don’t worry, you’ll be slaughtering plenty of hapless undead, but probably not so much at night.  Read on, and see what I mean.

Developer Techland is no stranger to zombies.  As the studio behind the Dead Island franchise, they’ve been honing their macabre craft for awhile now.  So it’s not really surprise that their next project, Dying Light, is staying within the zombie genre.  But beyond the game’s open world setting and first person perspective, Techland seems to be taking humanity’s struggle against the undead in some interesting directions.  A new gameplay video was posted today on the game’s official Youtube channel, and it highlights a more survivalist gameplay style than was on display during the game’s demonstration at VGX.  It turns out that the zombies of Dying Light get a lot more bitey when the sun goes down.  Check it out below.

Sure, there are a lot of zombie games out there, but I bet you’ve never seen one that features a first person powerslide kick attack.  Dying Light will be coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One next year.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
