Techland may be finished with Dead Island, but they are bringing a whole new undead world for us to explore in Dying Light. This 12 minutes of gameplay dives into the day-to-day life of a runner that must use their free running skill to out maneuver the slow and clumsy infected. But as darkness falls, the gameplay takes a dramatic turn and a new terrifying enemy emerges to hunt those unfortunate enough to be caught out.
The Dead Island and Riptide were solid open-world zombie games, but they may not have been as bug-free or polished as some gamers would’ve hoped for. Dying Light on the other hand looks (as far as the walkthrough goes) more than just polished, it looks awesome! My weird demented mind has occasionally ran the scenario of a zombie apocalypse and how I’d go about things. Games like Dying Light that let me explore a vast city filled with the undead is my equivalent of a playground to a child. I’m nothing short of excited!
