Are you looking for a next-gen open world zombie game? If you said yes, Warner Bros. Interactive and Techland have you covered. The game is currently in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS4, and Xbox 360. We currently don’t have very much information to go on except for some really nice looking screenshots and the following details.
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.”
I know it’s not much to go on, but take a look at the screenshots below.
Looks pretty nice no? We’ll have more details once E3 hits, but what do you think of what you’ve seen thus far?
