Dying Light is set to release early next year and looks to be an interesting multi-platform take on the zombie apocalypse.
The first developer diary has the developers at Techland go into detail about what it was like to create the Natural Movement system and how it is being implemented in Dying Light. Doing so allows the player to freely traverse the fictional city of Harran allowing them to run, jump and hurdle over anything they can see in the environment, while keeping the free-flowing gameplay and the need to ‘run’ from enemies in the foreground.
Seeing the movement system in action and hearing them talk about it makes me excited for the game. Hopefully it turns out to add more substance to the game to make it stand out other than ‘just another zombie game’. The video shows off a lot of gameplay of the free-running system and is in the developers native language. Check out the first developer diary for Dying Light below.
Dying Light is set to release February 2015 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
