Techland has today unveiled their opening cinematic for their upcoming open-world action survival game; Dying Light. Last week they released the Story Trailer (embedded at the bottom of this story), but now we have a look into the events that set up the story line. Dying Light is based in the City of Harran, a remote ill fated city caught up in the middle of a mysterious outbreak and political tug-of-war between Harran’s Ministry of Defense and the Global Relief Effort. See more in this opening cinematic:
More about Dying Light: – Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you 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 – but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.
Dying Light is coming to Xbox One in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe. Keep looking to ThisisXbox for more news and coverage in the build up to release.
As the rules that govern our civilization crumble, a new order of things is bound to emerge. In the latest trailer for Dying Light, Techland for the first time ever give a sneak peek into the storyline of their open-world, action survival game.
Looking for inspirations for Dying Light, we delved into classics of international literature, such as Albert Camus’s The Plague and Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. With our game, we wanted to evoke similar emotions and offer players an insight into how people react to the extreme.
Explains Rafał Orkan, a novelist and co-author of Dying Light’s story.
Roaming a city devastated by a mysterious epidemic that turns people into zombies, players will assume the role of Kyle Crane, an undercover operative sent to infiltrate the quarantine zone. Sheer chaos, warring factions and a suspicious mission all tug at Crane’s decisions for what he has been told is “the greater good”. Yet who decides when greater good turns into necessary evil?
Going into Dying Light, I was blown away by the visuals of the game and was surprised by such a mature, intense script. I’m honored Techland let me be a small part of this gritty tale of survival. Can’t wait to see people’s reactions when they find out what’s really going on in the story and I can’t wait to play the game myself!
says Roger Craig Smith.
Dying Light is released for Xbox One in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe.
