Let’s face it, thefranchise is lacking a few features to truly make it the ultimate first-person survival game. Upgrades and XP points aren’t going to cut it anymore, and I’m not trying to take anything away from Dead Island, it’s a beautiful game that kept us entertained for a few years. But I think we are all, including myself, looking for something new with another touch of realism and survival elements.
Could Dying Light be the game to fill the gap that’s been missing all along?
Well, I’m not 100% convinced yet based on the game features listed below because it still sounds too similar to Dead Island. But so far the footage in the trailers look pretty damn epic. Let’s just hope Dying Light isn’t a disappointment once its released on March 31, 2014.
In the meantime, something is going to be teased tomorrow. Maybe a demo for the PS4 and Xbox One, anyone?
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 sizable 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.
