In theory, Dying Light should be a fantastic game. It takes endless zombie hordes and combines them with Mirror's Edge-esque parkour mechanics. However, the game is being developed by Techland – the studio behind the thoroughly ordinary Dead Island series – so we're reserving our judgement for the time being.

At any rate, the open world zombie slaughter-fest will be launching for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on 27th January in North America, and 30th January in Europe. What's more, if you preorder the title you'll be treated to a nifty bonus that will allow you to assume the role of one of the brain-dead beasties and invade a friend's game.

Will you be picking up Dying Light early next year, or are you getting sick of zombie games? Double tap in the comments section below.
