The dark side of Dying Light

The dark side of Dying Light

We saw a gameplay video showing Dying Light in the daytime now Warner Bros. and Techland show us the other side of the title's day/night cycle mechanic. The 10 minutes video also shows some strategies the player can use to survive as the infected are much more threatful at night. The open-world survival-horror parkour game is scheduled to release in 2014 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Enjoy the 1080p/60fps video and some new screens.

Only on Gamersyde. Just so you know, original file was 4 Go, so expect super high quality. :)

Looks that way, judging from the button prompts.

I know I won't survive during the Zombie Apcolaspe....I can see me trying to get a Turkey Sandwich, and end up getting eaten by a legion of obese zombies.

Makes sense. Most people who do parkour over here in the US end up in the hospital. I imagine in a zombie apocalypse hospitals would be a bad idea.

Except poor AA everything looks good.

thanks for this, seen someone playing this demo footage before, this is my most wanted game for next year... love techlands zombie games and if this is moddable like the others it will be epic, cannot wait for slow zombies that can lose limbs and can only be killed with head shots :)))))

Looking really good. Love the free running and the combat. Everything just looks to have a real visceral and tactile feel despite being quite arcadey. The vegetation looks great as well.

The only thing that kind of concerns me after watching that is how easy it looked. The fact that you can pretty much head jump a group of 10 zombies and then just throw a flare or set of traps every 10 seconds seems to remove a lot of the threat, and therefore the tension. The best zombie games need to make you at least somewhat vulnerable, but this guy moves like a superhero. Did he even take damage during that whole video?

Let's hope this was just easy mode, and on hard you will have a lot fewer resources or something.

It looks good. But please don't turn it in a go and fetch game, like soooo many other open world games.

Great quality, Thanks Gamersyde.

Give me a break will you. If we're not good enough, just go.
Commented on 2013-12-28 01:55:51
Yeah over 2gb for a 9 min video is plenty!

    jmd749 Those guys were true masters of their craft. I'm very much looking forward to Amy Hennig's Star Wars game. Battlefront looks good on my PC, but without a single player campaign it's a no go for me. (13 minutes ago)
