In Dying Light, Movement Is Survival

Today marks the start of PAX 2014 here in Seattle, which means the public will have a chance to go hands-on with a number of upcoming titles. Techland and WB have Dying Light here at the show, with a new trailer that showcases the game's movement through the undead-infested environments.

In this first developer diary, the team discusses how it evolved its design to allow player freedom. Techland makes big claims not only about what the movement in Dying Light does for the game, but how it will change the FPS genre.

Dying Light is due out in February 2015 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more, check out a recent preview from Gamescom.

  • The producer guy, Tymon, is either full of s*** or he doesn't know crap about video games. His "freedom of movement" in FPS is a straight up rip-off of Mirror's Edge cinematographic parkour movement thingy. Where do they find the courage to say this is something new to the genre?
  • This game certainly looks good graphic wise, I just hope the story is good. I don't wanting to be running and slashing zombies for a mediocre story. I try to get excited for this, but I must keep my excitement in check. At least I know the co op will be good.

  • this game is a mix between Dead Island and Mirror's Edge with really good graphics. this game is going to rule!

  • It's like Assassin's Creed in 1st person. With zombies. The world of gaming will never be the same.

  • Great DD, loving the movement and Parkour. As a huge fan of Dead Island I'm super excited for Dying Light.

  • Wow. Impressive graphics. 2015 is going to be a special year.
  • Man this game looks great but I just hope it has a great story. If it does, I might just have to go pick it up.

  • So Dying Light is the definitive version of Dead Island aye from Techland this seems interesting.

  • Those are some big claims he's making in terms of influence and historical perspective. I hope he's right but I'm very skeptical

  • "where the focus is on natural movement and how the team set out to redefine movement in first-person shooters" that's so arrogant it's so cheesy, watching a video where the character sprints across a narrow cable and the cliche dumpster diving isn't natural movement and redefining to be honest, the main character must be a pro tightrope... sprinter with amazing luck with other people's garbage 'only soft objects in this trash' hahaha bloody hell =P

    VERY shallow lookin' game. A zombie game for zombies.

  • The video is private...

  • I want to like this game so badly but I think I am finally done with Zombies for awhile.

  • Why is the video private?

  • video doesnt work,youtube says its private

  • video doesnt work,youtube says its private

  • It says the video is private, may someone help me out?
