We didn’t get to see all that much of Dying Light when it was revealed at E3, but it was definitely all kinds of awesome and we’ve wanted to see so much more of it.
Fortunately, the developers have been listening to our requests, and Techland released a 12 minute gameplay trailer for their new game, and it looks absolutely amazing.
The first person title looks like Mirror’s Edge meets Dead Island and has a heavy focus on the parkour elements. You’ve got jump between rooftops and scale anything that looks even remotely climbable as you try to flee from the zombie menace.
You’ve got a lot more agility that you might be used to in your typical first-person game, and you need to use that agility in different ways to the usual solutions so that you can overcome any obstacles.
Violence isn’t always the answer, and it’s just as viable to avoid the enemy as it is to try and plough through them.
