Techland have announced that Dying Light, will now come earlier than expected hitting retail stores in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia. Pre-orders come with a free DLC mode called Be the Zombie. In this competitive asymmetric multiplayer mode, you invade other players’ games as the Night Hunter – an ultimate zombie with a unique set of deadly skills. By playing as the Night Hunter, you turn into a fast, agile and dangerous predator, whose objective is to hunt down human survivors.
The creators of Dying Light recently explained the game’s revolutionary Natural Movement system in the first Dev Diary video, recently released. Designed internally by Techland, Natural Movement empowers the player to traverse the fictional city of Harran with unprecedented ease and precision, seamlessly connecting parkour-style moves with brutal fighting.
Dying Light is a first-person, action survival game set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, players roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression – even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. Players need to use all their skills and any available means to survive until dawn.
We hope to have a review of the game in due course.
