Techland's Dead Island and Dying Light are both first-person action games set after the zombie apocalypse, but the studio is quick to keep them separate. As a new CG trailer shows, a key distinction is that the survivors in Dying Light don't appear to be the helpless underdogs we're accustomed to seeing.

The trailer shows a group heading toward a supply beacon. Rather than laboriously slog through the abandoned cityscape, the group freeruns through the environments accompanied by Woodkind's "Run Boy Run." It's certainly more efficient than taking the stairs one at a time, but the aggressive approach isn't any less dangerous.

Tim recently spoke to Techland about what made Dying Light different from Dead Island, and you can hear what the studio had to say in his preview.

Dying Light is set for release on the Xbox One, PS4, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 later this year.
