Watch a full 12 minutes of Techland's Dying Light, Pre-Alpha footage.
The end of the demo is where I got interested imo, looking forward to seeing more now! EDIT: The thing at the end reminded me of the vampires in Blade 2
Edit: Sorry thought this was from the Dead Island ceators
Isn't it being developed by Techland, not Deep Silver?
This one is more into the horror aspect mixed with mirrors edge style gameplay in terms of movement so while the setting is the same the core theme and gameplay is different imo it looks better than dead island
Why don't you just read a couple articles on it? lol. Plus, the Dead Island series has an unimpressive reputation, so they probably want a fresh start. EdoubleD Techland developed both Dead Island games while Deep Silver produced them.
This looks very awesome.
Next-gen cinematic gameplay is slowly approaching :D TLOU was the first I game played that felt like playing a Hollywood movie, this could be the next.
Now this is next gen! This looks more impressive than any other next gen game we have seen yet. I see all kinds of new graphical techniques being used in this game in addition to higher quality implementations of techniques we have already seen. Seriously impressive stuff.
the monster at the end reminded me more like a mixture of Dead Space/Res.Evil.... :) But dat cliche english accent....
This definitely looks a ton like Dead Island, which isn't exactly a bad thing. It wasn't a perfect game, but it was definitely a fun open world game when playing with a friend or two. It looks like a great evolution though. In Dead Island I was constantly climbing things, and the system wasn't really designed well for it. With the added survival/horror aspects, this looks like a truly great game.
While I like the FP view of the game, I think if it went 3rd person view it would be better. Too many games now a days are FP view. Looks pretty good though.
i would normally agree if it was a standard shooter. but with the free running added in there, it really makes the gameplay stand out to me.
I'll wait for ME2 for another first person free runner. Like I said it looks pretty good, but I think it would look better in 3rd person.
cool concept. that what should dead island look like.
Looks great so far and they still have a ways to go before launch. with the ease of development that next gen consoles allows devs i'm really excited at the quantity of games we will be getting at short periods of time.
Ahh man, this looks amazing. Been interested ever since I saw the debut trailer. Can't wait to see how it progresses!
Wow, graphics are amazing. Its like Dead Island and Mirrors Edge had a baby.
Good God. So many. Next gen games. That I totally need but not really. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGG GHHHHHHHHHHH
I'm really looking forward to all of these co-op games. I grow weary of having nothing but competitive multiplayer to play. I am so over zombies but this game looks to be a thrill with cooperative play. Sign me up.
This is single player, not co-op, co-op modes haven't been announced but the story mode is all single player
First of all, thank you for not being smug about it. Second, I must have gotten it confused with that medieval first-person zombie slashing game. Well dang. Thanks for setting me straight at least. That's too bad about no co-op. +helpful
Probably thinking of Hellraid--developed by same company and inspired by internal "mod" of DI. Mostly commenting so you can know the name (I forgot it earlier today). It sounds cool but want to see more of it as Dying Light is spotlight title ATM and think Hellraid is taking backseat to it (probably smaller team). Hopefully we see more of both next week though.
They actually announced 4 player co-op a while ago; it is toward the end of the article. http://www.polygon.com/2013...
Looking forward to this, game looks fantastic.
OMFG i need this game in my collection, the whole trailer was sick, but the end was where i really got hooked lol. Love this
It's looking to be a less arcadey Dead Island, and that's exactly what I am hoping it to be. The parkour is just a bonus.
The player got on my nerves. Girl:HURRY ITS ALMOST SUN DOWN Player:ok let me walk slowly to the package oh look a zombie. I could dash to the package and be on my way but no let me kill 15 zombies first. OH NO I'M LATE I WONDER WHY! If I was playing that package would've been secured in 5 mins max. In a way this makes me want to buy the game lol. Kudos to you crappy player.
Don't you think that, instead of the playing being crappy, this was setup(him being late) to showcase a big aspect of the game titled "Dying Light"? You know.... showcasing dying light. ;P
They could've passed the time by finding useful items or something and then zombies overwhelm him and he's running for his life then before you know it it's night. It'd be better than just panning around slowly and killing zombies to past the time.Showcase how fluid the free running is. Game looks great though.
Dying Light, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention. This game actually looks really intense, and that's great.
I think this is what Dead Island should have been.
That's just what I was about to put. Yes, this is the Dead Island we've been waiting for.
Fun fact, it's made by the same team.
