Dying Light trailer shows off 'next-gen' lighting

If you were boasting about using "the muscle of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One" to deliver a "truly next-gen experience," you'd want to really show it off, wouldn't you? Dying Light is a bit shy, apparently. A new trailer created to show off the shiny "physically based lighting system" in developer Techland's new open-world zombie 'em up only has thirty seconds of in-engine footage, though it certainly is pretty.

As well as bigging up the fancy lighting, the trailer is also to reveal the co-op open-world survive 'em up's Old Town area. It's a lot more attractive than the shanties we've seen before.

Dying Light is coming to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PS3 in 2014.
