Techland and WB Games’ upcoming Dying Light has all of the things that a video game nerd could want: gorgeous graphics, nail-gnawing gameplay, and plenty of “zombies” to dispatch with your arsenal of MacGyvered weapons. But what if the “zombies” weren’t really monsters at all? What would that mean for your own humanity?
It’s a question that would make even the most aggressive of philosophers pause, and Techland is throwing it right in our faces in their latest trailer for Dying Light. These aren’t just faceless ghouls, but neighbors, parents, children, friends. There’s plenty of gameplay on parade here as well, capped off with a final chilling question that promises that Dying Light may offer up the emotional impact that those tear-jerking Dead Island trailers never delivered on.
Dying Light will be released on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and PC.
