Axe to the head, axe to the body, axe to the neck, and a flaming axe to the back of the head. Zombies die in droves in the new Dying Light trailer, released days ahead of Gamescom. Aside from being exceptionally brutal, the trailer shows off a few of the game’s elements, most of all that it looks like a blood-soaked thrill ride on a roller coaster of zombie viscera.
Brutality aside, this astounding new trailer is the method WG Games chose to announce a brand new feature for Dying Light: four player co-op. In a game that will be very focused on picking your battles and running from trouble, terrain will play a gargantuan role.
The trailer takes the time to reveal a few terrain-related items in its bag of tricks: climb hotel signs, rush through a hole in a fence, and even use a grappling hook… all to escape a horde of zombies that quickly grew to unmanageable levels.
It closes by giving players a look at the game’s night cycle, where you become the hunted, as the zombies become more powerful and you must flee in nothing short of terror. This feature should provide some depth to the game as it will transition from action-oriented play to an unabashed horror experience. It looks like Dying Light will let you have your cake, boot fuck zombie skulls, and eat it too.
Dying Light was delayed recently but is tentatively scheduled for a February 2015 release.
