Warner Bros. today announced Dying Light, a first-person, action survival horror game with a day-night cycle set in a vast open world under development by Techland. At daytime, you will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, searching for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous.
“We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title.”
“The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle,” said Paweł 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 available in 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, plus Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system, and PC.
