Dying Light trailer questions your humanity

By Alice O'Connor, Feb 11, 2014 8:20am PST

Living in a world overrun by zombies is pretty bad, entertainment media would have us believe. Rather than simply embrace the futility of life and welcome death's warm embrace with a smile, we're to think, we'd sink lower and lower and lose more and more of ourselves. A new ...


Dying Light trailer shows 10 minutes of gameplay

By Alice O'Connor, Dec 17, 2013 7:50am PST

Dying Light may be yet another open-world zombie game from Techland, but the Dead Island creator seems to be trying something a little different this time. Rather than simply mowing down hordes of zombies, players will be more inclined to run away and dodge the corpses, usin...

Dying Light trailer shows off 'next-gen' lighting

By Alice O'Connor, Nov 18, 2013 11:00am PST

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 light...

Dead Island dev delays Hellraid into 2014

By Alice O'Connor, Oct 30, 2013 8:45am PDT

When Dead Island creator Techland announced Hellraid in April, its plan to launch the "first-person slasher" this year was surprising, given how long video game marketing plans usually run for. Well, it's now a bit more in keeping with tradition, as Techland has delayed the ...

Dying Light trailer: 12 minutes of parkour and zombies

By Alice O'Connor, Aug 16, 2013 8:00am PDT

Dying Light's premise of "parkour with zombies" may sound more fun than, well, most zombie games anyway, but how does it actually look in practice? A 12-minute 'gameplay' trailer shows Dead Island creator Techland does have something interesting here, with wonky combat on to...

Dying Light brings parkour to land of zombies

By Andrew Yoon, May 23, 2013 6:00am PDT

Zombies are still in vogue, but it's surprising to see Dead Island developer Techland move onto an entirely different first-person zombie game. While Dead Island could be described as an undead take on The Elder Scrolls, their new game, Dying Light, could be quickly summed a...
