Sleep Tight in Techland's Dark Adventure Dying Light
Posted by Sammy Barker
Good night, good luck
You can see the influences dripping out of this 12-minute Dying Light gameplay video. The upcoming Techland developed PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 adventure is two parts Dead Island and one part Mirror’s Edge. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, as evidenced by the footage embedded below.
The trailer shows off a hearty chunk of the game’s free-running component, melee-based combat, and side-missions. During the day, you’ll be able to sprint through the world and complete missions without too many impediments. However, once the sun sets, you’ll want to get back to your safe house, as the zombies adopt a more deadly guise.
As has become the standard for Techland, the voice acting is absolutely atrocious. It’s still pre-alpha, though, so there’s plenty of time to polish things up. At least the graphics look good, with the draw distance perhaps the most impressive. The title’s due out in 2014, so we’re sure that the developer will be lacing up a lot more footage over the coming months.
