Dying Light's Gamescom trailer is ten pounds of awesome in a 5 pound bag

More On: Dying Light

With Gamescom 2014 just around the corner we're about to be inundated with new trailers for upcoming games.  Case in point is this new trailer for Dying Light which shows off a metric ton of new gameplay footage.

Here are my takeaways from the trailer:

  • The open world nature of the game allows for a lot of different ways for players to get from point A to point B.  Not only can you use things in the environment to gain access to places but you can even jump on the zombies to get to certain areas or over blockages.
  • There are going to be lots of cool ways to kill zombies in the game and the damage model for the zombies is flexible enough to allow for some really creative kills
  • The day night mechanic is really shown off well in the back half of the trailer.  The zombies get more powerful at night and you are at a real disadvantage when the sun goes down.
  • The graphics look fantastic and are really going to push systems when the game comes out in February, 2015.

Be sure to check out the interview that Travis did at E3 as it covers these features and a whole lot more.
