Until we can show you the PS4 version later today, here are a few gameplay videos of Dying Light on PC. Since we captured them using our dedicaded capture PC, the framerate issues you can see are real with our game rig (i5 4670K @ 4.0 GHz, 8 Go RAM, Windows 8.1, Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 Gigabyte OC), which seems to indicate that the game isn't fully optimized yet. Indeed, apart from the draw distance option that clearly has an impact on framerate, lowering the other graphics settings do not seem to improve the overall experience. It's still playable, but the drops should be fewer with a GTX 970. Aside from the optimization problems, the game seems rather solid thanks to the new traversal possibilities. Melee combat has been improved over Dead Island's and fighting has become even more visceral. That being said, if you never enjoyed Techland's previous zombie series, chances are you won't find this new game to your liking either. Check out our videos and leave a comment to share your own experience.
@Melmoth: Exactly and that's my point :) I convinced myself to play it even though its first person - for a game to do that for me, it's BIG! (9 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: i used to read Edge reviews in the 90's and early 2000's because their opinions very often lined up with my own. Also, reading reviews is better than "reading" scores. (12 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: for me it's worked well to find a site, or even better, a reviewer you often seem to agree with or have the same taste in games, and you hare some reference point. (14 minutes ago)
Having played other recent horror games, they probably just decided/realized it was a superior camera for the genre. (14 minutes ago)
happy as hell because boy.....was 6 a mess. Even the good parts really weren't that good at all. Still though I am slightly sad about no third person. (15 minutes ago)
I'm sure if Resi 7 had been exactly like 6 nobody would be happy. It seems Capcom now looked at modern horror games and also brought back some Resi stuff. If I was a fan of this franchise I would be (17 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Agree, nice atmosphere and graphics looks solid. So nice to see a RE that doesn't look like a shitty action B movie. (24 minutes ago)
