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!

Great gameplay, great leveling system, good story, great graphics, great weapon selection, great game mechanics, wonderful open world, great multiplayer, great fun factor, this is just a wonderful game. So very satisfying to kill the zombies with crushing attacks, wearing our your weapons keeps you constantly scrounging for new ones which keeps things fresh and fun, the day and night cycle with added difficulty but also xp at night makes things very exciting and balances risk with reward very well. You won't be disappointed, this is the zombie game a lot of us have been waiting for.
As you play Dying Light, you will notice that it is very similar to Dead Island, but a whole lot better. Comparisons aside, this is one of my most favorite games ever. First off, it's a lot of fun killing zombies with crazy weapons. The movement is great, and combat is very satisfying. Also, the addition of parkour is great and well-done. Fans of parkour must get this game. There's and RPG touch with this game, with it's skill tree and customization weapons. Then there's the addition of day and night. You have not truly experienced the game until you have your first night away from a safe place. The story and characters are good, but not amazing. The game seems pretty mediocre for the first hour or two, but the game gets better and better as you level up, get new weapons, and have more nights. This game does not need to be played with friends in order for you to have fun. Some people even recommend you don't. I only have three problems with this game. One is that the quests could be more interesting, instead of being fetch quests. The other is the performance. This game has pretty good graphics, but they are bad for how well the game runs. IF you check the minimum requirements, they are high, but if you come close to meeting them you will most likely be able to run the game. My specs don't even meet the minimum requirements, but I can run the game on high at 30-60 fps. Considering that I can run The Witcher 3 with ultra high graphics at 40-60 fps, this game doesn't run the best. Dying Light is an addicting immersive game, and is worth to pick up, especially while its on sale, but if you don't have the money, you can take a look at Dead Island, which is a cheaper alternative.
One of the best zombie games I have played to date, the developers at Techland know how to put fun in zombie survival. This is not a trollish deathmatch with zombies where humans are the main threat (DayZ, H1Z1, ect...), this is a cooperative up to 4 players zombie slaying experience. The game makes night time a nightmarish experience, reducing your visibility to zero without a flashlight and littering the map with stalker like zombies that hunt you down once your spotted by them. There is an optional game mode where you can be the zombie and become the hunter and invade players game sessions. The controls handle quite well and navigating the environment is smooth, the audio and graphics are top notch will sometimes make you second guess that thing in the distance and have you gawking at some pretty vistas. The map is massive with limitless places to hop, skip, and parkour up (hope you like vertigo!). The game later also gives you a handy grapple tool getting you access up hard to reach places, it can be used to escape if you get cornered. A huge plus what you don't see too much these days is user created maps adding many hours to the zombie slaying fun. This game is well worth the price even more so if it's on sale. 10/10 zombie slayer simulator 2015
As saturated as the mainstream entertainment media is with zombies i had low expectations for this game, real low. I'm not particularly a big fan of open world games as well. But, this turned out to be one awesome game. The level of detail in the world and the graphics are just really well done. There are plenty of buildings to go into and hide, search, and uncover secrets. The graphics are wonderful and catch the tone of the game even if it's sunny outside, or when it gets dark at night. The gameplay is a simplified Mirrors Edge or between that and Assassins Creed. It's based around parkour, you can climb just about anything to get away from the zombie hordes. What makes the game good is that theres not just one or two types of zombies, theres several types with their own abilities chasing you making you react quickly how to escape the situations you're in. The story is engaging just as any other big game, it has the lame zombie drama like you see in the Walking Dead, but there are plenty of things to do. Lots of weapons to choose from, and you can even craft your own even with special abilities. This game is hard, but rewarding, and very fun.
Dying Light does two things very well: Combat and Parkour. The story didn't matter much to me, the characters were pretty bland, but the movement is so smooth, and the combat feels great. Pros: -Parkour. Easily the best parkour system in any game (at least the ones I've played) -Combat. Solid, satisfying, and responsive. (Even after the 10,000th zombie kill it still feels great to chop off a head) -Night/Hunters. At night the game changes, zombies are more aggressive and hunters come out, changing the way you play. -Graphics. Great textures and animations. -Co-op. Always a nice addition to any game, and it's a hell of a lot of fun in this game. Cons: -Weapons. I feel like there could have been better weapon tiers. At higher levels you seem to only find swords, the earlier weapons like hammers and wrenches become absolutely worthless when you do randomly come across them. -Guns. Too few guns, and pretty mediocre gunplay. -VS Mode. Hard to find a decent match, and when you do it's likely the other person will just quit. When you do get someone who wants to fight it's often very easy for the human to win by spamming flares. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this game, however it got kind of boring ~50 hours in. Though I haven't played since the updates and DLC so I'm not sure what has changed, but I highly recommend this game. It's a ton of fun co-op and just a good game if you want to slice or dice, smash or slash zombies.
