Dying Light is just around the corner, after a few minor delays and a decent amount of hype. This cinematic launch trailer goes into the story a bit but really shows off the free-running based traversal system and freeform melee combat that are the core of the game's mechanics.
I'll be honest, I didn't like Techland's previous zombie effort, Dead Island, much at all. It was buggy and the main ideas weren't as well implemented as I would've liked. The studio's sophomore effort, however, looks a lot more refined and confident. For a long time I've wanted a first-person game that implemented free-running dynamically. Here's hoping that Dying Light lives up to the hype.
