A Techie Look At The Light Of Dying Light

Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment give us a look at some of the next generation console power being used to harness a new physically based lighting system (called Chrome Engine 6) for it’s new game, Dying Light. The software allows a more creative/realistic lighting and shadows to make the game world more authentic and immersive. This is also the first look at a new location in the game, Old Town, and is completely different from everything that has been shown

Dying Light is a 4 player co-op action survival game set in an open world in which the player must use free running skills to out maneuver or attack a population of zombies (think of it as Dead Island mixed with Mirror’s Edge if you will). If you’ve not seen the game in action, check out the below 12-minute gameplay walkthrough to see what you’ll be in store for next year.

The game is scheduled for a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows release in 2014.

Having got to play an early version of the game at this years Eurogamer Expo, I must say I wasn’t blown away, but hopefully with further development (in both tech and gameplay) this may be something fun.

    Shame ya didn’t enjoy the game, I did kinda like the style of the game, I’m not a big zombie fan but I did enjoy how this was played.

      Really liked Dead Island, but this felt more of the same – however it’s release date is a little way away so not going to poo poo it. I suspect they are going to up the tech level (number of zombies on screen at once etc.) and drop the PS3 and XBOX 360. Call it a hunch!
