I'm at a reasonable level of physical fitness. Should a zombie outbreak happen, I'm confident I could run away from the classic Walking Dead-style biter. Those World War Z and 28 Days Later fast zombies, on the other hand, I'm not so sure about.
If this live action POV parkour video is any indication, Techland's Dying Light takes it a step further by giving the world parkour zombies. I definately wouldn't be able to get away from parkour zombies.
Nothing makes me feel worse about myself than watching someone successfully execute parkour. The bright side is that my self-esteem would just be too low to care that I was being eaten. So there's that.
Dying Light is out on January 27 in the Americas, January 28 in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30 in Europe and Asia.
