Plus first look at a new location in the open-world.

Warner Bros. and Techland have released a new video of upcoming four-player co-op action survival game Dying Light showcasing its next-gen lighting technology.

The open-world game uses Techland’s Chrome Engine 6 to provide for a physically based lighting system that allows the studio to create realistic lighting and shadows.

Outside of the lighting system, the video also provides a first look at Old Town, a new location in the game “completely different” from any other area we’ve seen so far.

Watch the video below. The game is due out in 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

    Nice techs, but here hoping that next-gen versions won’t ship with any major bug or glitch.

  • Invisbin

    Oh my. That looks like a fun place to explore.

  • MasterSensei

    I hate to be a stick in the mud but another zombie game? *Sigh* when will it end…

  • gekitsu

    the lighting and scenery sure looks nice, but im with mastersensei: another zombie game? no chance ill ever have the slightest trace of interest in that game.

    • Budgiecat

      yeah whats wrong with vampires or demons?

      Vampire Hunter D
      Countdown Vampires
      Shadows of the Damned
      Infamous: Festival of Blood
      Vampire Night
      Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
      Blood +

      I know I’m probably missing a few but okay not much here over the last 15 years or so..

        zombies certainly arent the only overused story trope in existence. :) but, to me, they are the most annoying.

        everyones mileage may vary, but i wasnt a fan of the whole thing from the very beginning. i find the common variety rather dull and too much catering to the american last-man-standing, surrounded-on-all-sides, omg-threats-everywhere trope to be enjoyable. therefore i wasnt as annoyed when i could just ignore the occasional resident evil or somesuch, instead of every other game being “you wan’ zombies with dat?”

        i mean – if someone delved into haitian mythology for story background and cooked up a game involving zombies thats actually interesting, im sure there is a genuinely good game in that matter somewhere. we just dont have those right now.

        the endless retellings of the zombie apocalypse as a cheap way to conjure a “tense” (=dull) “survival environment” (=shooting gallery) because we cant be arsed to think of something and zombies sell anyway just isnt my idea of interesting games.

        nothing against you, and absolutely no attack or belittlement intended if theres something in there that you enjoy. just please understand that there is no such thing in there for me. :)
