Warner Bros. and Techland Announce Dying Light


Techland and Warner Bros. have a new zombie game in development called Dying Light. Polygon reports that the game takes place in an open world with a dynamic day/night cycle and Mirror's Edge-style free running. Gameplay involves scavenging during the day when zombies are slow and weak, because at night they become stronger and more numerous.

I was just thinking to myself: "Self, where are all the zombie games?" I'm glad Warner and Techland (who?) are brave enough to blaze the trail in an under-served genre. And then to apparently blend that with FPS (they mention Mirror's Edge so I'm making a guess), I mean wow... that takes some balls!

Ok, thanks. I'm a fan of the Dead Island concept so I should have known that.

I'll take it. Now all I need is a zombie game with Assassin's Creed style environment interaction.

This sounds neat, but Techland. So, there's that.

What happened to that XBLA zombie game, did it ever come out?

Is this going to be the upgrade in concept and delivery from Dead Island that Riptide wasn't? Concept sounds great, they'll just have to put out something that isn't an unpolished, buggy mess.

What it sounds like is I am Legend, the game. But that might be fun to play. Too bad Techland is a mediocre dev.
