Dying Light is explained as a brand new first person, action survival horror game with a day/night cycle set in an open world environment. With Warner Bros. handling the publishing and Techland (Dead Island) on the development, you can expect Dying Light in 2014 on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 (as well as Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC).
Sticking with a zombie theme, Dying Light during the day has you exploring an open world for supplies, while also crafting weapons to protect yourself against the infected population that exists thanks to a vicious outbreak. At night, the infected become more dangerous, forcing you to protect yourself against them, and the enemies that only appear at night.
Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President of Sales and Operation in the Americas at WBIE, had this to say:
We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles. 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.
Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland, then added a comment of his own:
The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle. Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience.
