Dying Light (Available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC) Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression – but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their nests to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.

This looks like a mishmash of Mirror’s Edge and Dead Island – one of which isn’t too surprising with it coming from the creators of the first Dead Island. It looks fairly ambitious with the amount of freedom given in its open world. I’m not sensing much of a story, but I’m sure there’s a lot of zombie havoc to enjoy. This game includes a myriad of features such as:

  • VAST OPEN WORLD – Dying Light lets you traverse an extensive world plunged into chaos and destruction. In this diverse environment, you fight for survival against many kinds of enemies since the infected are not the only threat: facing down other desperate humans is often the only way to get precious supplies.
  • NIGHT CHANGES THE RULES – In daylight you explore the city searching for supplies and weapons. After nightfall, though, this infected world undergoes a dramatic transformation that gives the gameplay a new dimension. You, a hunter by day, become prey. The infected grow in strength, but something even more sinister looms in the darkness to begin its hunt.
  • PARKOUR-STYLE MOVEMENT – Whether you hunt or escape the hunters, you can move around the city with ease and speed. Jump between rooftops, climb walls, and attack your foes from above. Dying Light gives players a freedom of movement never seen in open world games before.
  • BRUTAL, VISCERAL COMBAT – Fight face to face using a diverse selection of melee weapons: knives, bats, axes, or more unusual tools of destruction. Strike down your enemies, cut off their limbs, save your own life!
  • CRAFT YOUR WEAPONS – Dying Light features RPG elements that let you develop the protagonist and adjust him to your play style. It’s a long and difficult journey from rookie to badass.
  • CHOOSE YOUR PLAY STYLE – Make use of weapons, your surroundings, and traps set by other survivors. Provoke groups of enemies to attack each other. Complete objectives by day or at night. Take advantage of darkness, fog, and storm to remain unseen. Turn the odds in your favor with offensive and defensive gadgets. It’s always your call!
  • CO-OP MODE FOR 4 PLAYERS – Cooperate with other players in the extreme conditions of a zombie apocalypse. Show your individuality and customize your character.
  • ASYMMETRIC MULTIPLAYER – Survivors, beware! Every time the night falls on Harran, your game can be invaded by the Night Hunter, a human-controlled, extremely powerful enemy. Join forces with other players to repel the invasion or go one-on-one with the city’s worst nightmare.
