Hope Hangs by a Thread and Fades with the Light as Survivors Scavenge the Remains of Humanity
Coming to Next-Gen and Current-Gen Consoles, PC in 2014LONDON, UK – 23rd May, 2013 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announces Dying Light, a first-person, action survival horror video game with a portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world. Currently under development by Techland, the game will be available in 2014 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4, plus Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system, and PC.

During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown.  Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.

“We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title.”

“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Paweł Marchewka, CEO of Techland. “Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience.”

  1. It looks pretty I suppose. It could easily be just another zombie open world game. Like Dead Island. Though it does seem to have it’s own unique take on it. No matter what, I’m ecstatic to see some new IPs coming out. So much better than the glutton of Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed and whatnot.

  2. It could suck, or it could be a gem, we’ll see, it is still a long time before 2014. However I had the same impression of The Last of Us and that is looking to be a pretty good game from the videos that I have seen around the web.
