Dying Light Is the New Zombie Jam from the Dead Island Team

Posted on May 24, 2013 AT 10:52am

The developers behind Dead Island are pumping out another zombie-killing jam with the announcement of Dying Light for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, and PS3.

According to developer Techland, Dying Light is a first-person action title that revolves around a realistic day/night cycle. The daytime is described as a period geared for preparation—the ideal opportunity for scavenging supplies. The nights, however, bring with them much more powerful monsters, and will require greater emphasis on stealth tactics.

Combat in Dying Light will be similar to Dead Island in that it’s very melee-focused. Dying Light sets itself apart from Dead Island, however, with its agility-based parkour traversal.

Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said they will reveal more details on Dying Light in the near future. The title is expected to drop on current- and next-gen consoles sometime 2014.
