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...

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 first trailer flees zombies

By Alice O'Connor, Jun 07, 2013 7:30am PDT

Killing zombies is so passé. Running away from zombies, that's the next big thing! Beatshapers is working on an undead endless runner with ZRun, and Dead Island creator Techland is going all parkour-y with Dying Light. The first trailer dropped today ahead of E3, showing th...


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...
