Wrenches and scissors and handguns? Oh my! Techland and WB Games have announced their upcoming presence at this year’s E3 with authority by giving us a brand new trailer for the upcoming zombie game Dying Light.
The trailer itself is an onslaught of violence with a variety of improvised weapons, showcasing a level of gore that would make H.G. Lewis blush.
Gamers have been waiting a very long time on news of Dying Light’s release date. Finally, our unholy prayers have an answer. The game is slated for a February 2015 release, but there’s no concrete day as of yet. It will be available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
Aside from being gleefully violent, Dying Light’s new trailer is meant to show off the game’s natural movement feature. It allows for movements to be more intuitive and combine parkour-style movement with brutal combat. The trailer does nothing to explain this though, but Techland promise to provide full details about it at E3 this year. Yet another reason to attend the world series of video games.
The trailer also showcases some of the more powerful enemies that will be encountered in Dying Light. A large super soldier, effortlessly swinging a rebar club, and a flaming behemoth-like brute charging headlong are just a taste of the more powerful undead that the game will feature.
For those of you who go outside and thus haven’t heard, Dying Light is an action survival horror game where, during the day, you utilize movement and agility to defeat hordes of zombies and complete missions. At night you are on the run, as the zombies become much more powerful and are accompanied by nocturnal predators that leave their hives to feed. In the game’s night segments, the hunter becomes prey as you flee the ravaging undead.
The game will incorporate the RPG elements of collecting and crafting, which the player will utilize to craft their many weapons and find the supplies needed to survive a zombie filled hell on earth.
