Warner Bros. has today announced Dying Light, a current and next-gen survival horror title that takes its cue from Dead Island, in as much as it's a first-person action title set in an expansive open-world. Boasting a "portentous" day-night cycle, Dying Light is set amid an outbreak of a devastating infection in a ravaged urban environment.
Daytime presents the opportunity to brave the streets as you scavenge for supplies and resources to craft weapons, while as night falls, the infected populous becomes increasibly aggressive and dangerous. After sundown, 'predators' appear, presenting the most vicious and terrifying threat. You'll need to survive the night by any means necessary to see another day.
“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Pawe? Marchewka, CEO of Techland. “Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."
Dying Light will be heading to both Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014. You can check out the first seven screenshots from the next-gen version of the game below.
