Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that "Dying Light", a new first-person, action survival horror video game with a portentous day-night cycle set in a vast open world overrun with zombies, will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2014.
During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.
“We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”
“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Paweł Marchewka, CEO of Techland. “Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."
Currently under development by Techland, "Dying Light" will be available in 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more information on this game, please visit the 360-HQ video games database, or the official Facebook site.
