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.
