Dying Light is the first evergame that combines both an open world survival space with a free running one. Today we finally get to see 12 minutes of gameplay footage from the epic game currently under development by the guys who brought to life, Techland. So you shouldn’t be so surprised at how similar it looks like Dead Island, but since free running is a key feature in the game, you’ll quickly notice that movement is much more seemless in Dying Light. You can crawl up poles and jump over walls just like in Prototype.
A portentous day-night cycle will also impact the gameplay in Dying Light since during the day players will need to scavenge for supplies and craft deadly weapons to survive against the infected. At night, the player is the hunted and the infected become a lot more aggressive and dangerous.
You get a good glimpse at these environment changes and what it takes to survive in the video clip right above, courtesy of IGN.

Dying Light Features:
Free Running Movement
Whether tracking prey or escaping predators, Dying Light lets players swiftly navigate the world by seamlessly leaping between buildings, grappling up walls, and pouncing on unsuspecting enemies.
Open World Environments
Dying Light is set in a vast open world, delivering expansive and varied environments, a wide variety of enemy classes and a hopeless tale of survival where resources are scarce and the infected are not the only threat.
Brutal Melee and Ranged Combat
Get up-close using a variety of light and heavy weapons including knives, bats, axes, sledgehammers, and more exotic weaponry, or utilize guns and other firepower to take down enemies from a distance.
Choose Your Play Style
Dying Light features four playable characters that can be fully customized and upgraded to match any play style.
Craft Your Weapon
Why use a wrench when you can use a wrench wrapped in electrified barbed wire? Dying Light’s sizeable crafting system enables players to create a slew of new, more potent weapons and equipment, as well as specialized ammunition.
Breathtaking Visuals and Gameplay
Dying Light is the first game powered by Chrome Engine 6, a cutting-edge incarnation of Techland’s proprietary technology, designed from the ground up for the new console generation, DirectX 11 and other advanced solutions.
