Dying Light will make you afraid of the dark

Warner Bros has decided not to wait for E3 to announce its Next Big Thing. Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror game that puts serious weight into the day/night cycle.

Dying Light is in the works at Techland, the studio behind the Dead Island series. Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment explains:

We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles. The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title.

As you may have suspected, Dying Light is headed to both new major platforms: PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as the traditional PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. This is a big deal for Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland.

The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle. Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience.

...but what about the gameplay? It's split into two parts: During daylight hours, you explore and traverse a giant, urban landscape. Your task is to scavenge for supplies and crafting weapons - and, of course, to fend off the infected hordes, whose numbers get greater every day.

They're not too much of a problem when it's sunny, though. At night, however... the infected become aggressive and dangerous - and there are nocturnal predators that only emerge after sunset.

Will you survive until dawn?
