The new Dying Light trailer won’t show you anything in the way of gameplay footage, but it’ll make you ooh and aah.
It’s live-action, so it’s not going to show you how the game actually runs… but as it’s first-person and parkour-filled, it’ll give you a pretty good impression of how the city-exploring, zombie-escaping first-person game works. There’s a bit of looting, and then a lot of leaping across the rooftops of Cambridge in the UK. Most of which looks incredibly dangerous, which makes it all the more impressive.
Dying Light is Techland’s first-person, open-world, zombie-fighting parkour-’em-up. I’ve had a bit of a play with preview code, and you can read my impressions here or watch me horribly screw it all up here. The live-action trailer is below.
Dying Light is due out on 27 January, which is the same week as about a million other games.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
