Dying Light Gameplay Video Shows the First 15 Minutes of the Game

With release set for next month, IGN and developer Techland teamed up to reveal the first 15 minutes of Dying Light. Well, it’s actually the first 15 minutes minus the opening cutscene and tutorials, but those omissions aside, it gives you an idea of what to expect in the beginning.

Over the course of the video, you’ll learn about the virus that turned everyone into zombies; meet Dr Zere, the scientist who plans to save humanity; meet Spike, one of the resistance’s leaders; learn how to rig traps in preparation for sundown; and see how free-running and the environment can be used to your advantage.

Dying Light will be released on January 27, 2015 in North America and January 30, 2015 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. As we learned a few weeks ago, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were cancelled because “older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.”

What do you think of your latest look at Dying Light?
