Techland shows 12 minutes of Dying Light gameplay

Open-world zombie adventure due for release in 2014

Techland has released a 12 minute Dying Light gameplay video introducing players to the studio’s upcoming first-person action survival game. While it bears some similarities to the company’s best know series, Dead Island, the open-world game features a number of elements that make it stand out amongst the horde, such as Mirror's Edge-style parkour.

We said in a recent Dying Light preview: “You can scale trees and poles, jump from rooftop to rooftop, and climb around almost anything, within the world. Being this agile completely changes how you approach situations, as you don't always need to carve a hole through the undead horde in order to escape. When forced to choose between fight or flight, flight is actually an option, and it looks incredibly fun.”

Dying Light has been in development since 2012 and is due to hit PC, next-gen consoles and current-gen ones in 2014. Be sure to check out the full preview for information about the game’s weapon crafting system and meaningful day/night cycle.
