Zombies used to be exciting analogies for humanity and society. But they’re now little more than an excuse for a slowly shuffling adversary, in most games and films. Dying Light does not go against the tide of popular fiction and the zombies present are slow, stupid obstacles to be avoided and killed.
Dying Light is the latest game from Dead Island developers Techland and continues their theme of first person open world zombie survival games. Set in a fictitious Middle Eastern city the game sees you play as a covert agent parachuted in from a secretive organisation to secure intel from a group of survivors left in a quarantined city (quarantined due to a zombie outbreak obviously).
