Techland has released a brand-new trailer for its upcoming open-world survival title, Dying Light, that shines a light on the title’s story for the first time.
In Dying Light, players will assume the role of Kyle Crane, an undercover operative who has been sent to a city that’s been devastated by a mysterious epidemic that turns its citizens into zombies. Crane needs to fight through sheer chaos and warring factions in order to complete his mission as he attempts to infiltrate the city’s quarantine zone.
“Looking for inspirations for Dying Light, we delved into classics of international literature, such as Albert Camus’s The Plague and Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness,” explains Rafal Orkan, co-author of Dying Light’s story. “With our game, we wanted to evoke similar emotions and offer players an insight into how people react to the extreme.”
Dying Light is expected to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 27.
