Dying Light Announced For Next-Gen Consoles
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a new open-world first-person survival horror game, Dying Light. From the developers of Dead Island and Call of Juarez, Techland, the game will launch sometime in 2014 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will also be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
Dying Light will take place in a full day time-span with a day-night cycle. In the day time, players must scavenge an urban environment for weapons, supplies, and defend themselves from infected people caused by an outbreak. During the night, the infected will become much more aggressive with different and more daunting predators spawning.
“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka in a statement. “Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience.”
No announcement has been made in regards to a Nintendo Wii U release at this time. Techland is also working on a co-op hack-and-slash for the current-gen consoles titled Hellraid.
