Dead Island developer Techland is back and they are staying in the genre that made them famous: zombies. Dying Light is a first-person action game that will have you thinking more Mirror’s Edge with zombies than just another Dead Island.
The new E3 trailer for the game is just as well made at the original Dead Island video that put that game on the map and while the Dying Light video may not tug at your heartstrings it certainly conveys the hopelessness in this society and has a great “pull the rug out from under you” part.
If Techland can correct a lot of the jankiness that accompanied Dead Island and get the smooth, free running gameplay of Mirror’s Edge down, they could be looking at a winner.
Dying Light releases in 2014 for Xbox One and PS4.
