Dying Light is an action survival game presented in first-person perspective. The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created.
At night, the hunter becomes the prey as the infected grow in strength and aggression - but even more lethal are the nocturnal, inhuman predators that leave their hives to feed. You will need to make use of all your skills and any available means to survive till dawn.
Welcome to the Quarantine – Experience an original and intense story set in an infected city cut off from the outside world. Only the fittest have any hope of survival.
Vast Open World – Dying Light lets you traverse an extensive world plunged into chaos and destruction. In this diverse environment, you fight for survival against many kinds of enemies since the infected are not the only threat: facing down other desperate humans is often the only way to get precious supplies.
Night Changes the Rules – In daylight you explore the city searching for supplies and weapons. After nightfall, though, this infected world undergoes a dramatic transformation that gives the gameplay a new dimension. You, a hunter by day, become prey. The infected grow in strength, but something even more sinister looms in the darkness to begin its hunt.
Parkour-Style Movement – Whether you hunt or escape the hunters, you can move around the city with ease and speed. Jump between rooftops, climb walls, and attack your foes from above. Dying Light gives players a freedom of movement never seen in open world games before.
Brutal, Visceral Combat – Fight face to face using a diverse selection of melee weapons: knives, bats, axes, or more unusual tools of destruction. Strike down your enemies, cut off their limbs, save your own life!
Firearms – Powerful but noisy. Use pistols, shotguns, and rifles to gain an advantage over enemies, but remember that gunfire can and will attract unwanted attention.
Craft Your Weapons – Why use an ordinary cleaver when you can attach a lighter for burning damage? Or wrap a hammer in electrified barbed wire? Dying Light lets you create your own weapon upgrades and construct increasingly efficient tools of combat.
Be the Quarantine Hero – Dying Light features RPG elements that let you develop the protagonist and adjust him to your play style. It’s a long and difficult journey from rookie to badass.
Choose Your Play Style – Make use of weapons, your surroundings, and traps set by other survivors. Provoke groups of enemies to attack each other. Complete objectives by day or at night. Take advantage of darkness, fog, and storm to remain unseen. Turn the odds in your favor with offensive and defensive gadgets. It’s always your call!
Hours of Gameplay – Discover a thrilling story, complete more than a hundred side-quests, and put your skills to the test in special challenges.
Co-op Mode for 4 Players – Cooperate with other players in the extreme conditions of a zombie apocalypse. Show your individuality and customize your character.
Be the Zombie – Unique online mode where you play as a zombie. If you ever dreamed of stalking other survivors, now is your chance. Let the hunt begin!
Breathtaking Visuals and Realism – Dying Light is the first game based on the Chrome Engine 6 – the latest revolutionary incarnation of Techland’s proprietary technology. Built from the ground up with next-generation consoles and advanced DirectX 11 graphics in mind, it delivers a new level of visual quality, special effects, and dynamic weather conditions, maintaining unparalleled efficiency at the same time.
I am on my 4th playthrough. Do I need to say anything else. The game is visceral, challenging and fluid. The story is solid, and it brings you to a somewhat obvious conclusion, but in an enjoyable way. The weapons are top notch, and the community challenges add mission content. The expansion, the following, is very good as well.
Dying Light provides an immersive open world with crisp visuals and great audio design. It also serves as a fantastic coop experience. The entire campaign and its DLCs can be played with 4 players. Although the experience can get repetitive by the end of the game and the player become slightly overpowered for the horde, one can still receive hours of fun from this title. I highly recommend it and its story DLC, "The Following".
One of the best open world co-op games out there. This game is from the devs that made Dead Island. That game seemed to me comparable to a weaker, more action oriented version of a Bethesda Fallout game with Zombies, but was still fun with friends. Dying Light takes that foundation and ups it x10. Less bugs, and smoother more enjoyable gameplay and environment (not to mention parkour). Story is meh but it keeps the world engaging. Playing single player can be fun but might get stale to some folks after awhile. In my opinion the chicken and waffles here is playing with friends. F*** playin in game nights tho (even with friends).
Dying Light is Dead Island on steroids. The game's combat system feels alive, the parkour is very fun, the DLC is huge and the story is interesting. Running around at night time is scarier than most horror games. The weapon customization is amazing, the weapon starts to feel like it does serious damage. Playing solo is fun and even scarier, playing duo is fun and gives you false hope. The game has been supported for 3 years, and a sequel is looking hopeful. This game is a must-buy.
Dying Light is just a masterpiece! It's the best zombie game I've ever played and it is indeed the most fun and challenging title of the genre you can find! It tried new things in zombie games and of course making it as an open world was one of the best ideas the developers decided to do, because it gives you total freedom to do whatever and whenever you like to do! The gameplay is super fun and smooth, the parkour movements are like the ones I've seen in Assassin's Creed Unity for the first time and the developers managed to make it happen in here in the best way possible, the gunplay is really fun and there's also lots of available weapons to craft, upgrade and customize at your will to deal most efficiently and deadly as possible. The driving is really amazing and you get to smash hordes of zombies just like the ones you saw on movies with your vehicles. in my opinion the best possible experience of Dying Light is via Coop play and when you play it with friends you see how marvelous and wonderful this game could be, it will just blow you away and brings you endless fun! If you are a fan of zombie slaughtering games you should not ever miss Dying Light at all cost and I recommend it 200%! without a doubt!
