The game-play trailer of Dying Light has been released by Techland Games ahead of the E3 conference scheduled from 11 to 13 June at the Los Angeles Convention Centre. With the trailer released a few days ago, PlayStation will be providing a hands-on demo of the game to the media at the conference.
"We're thrilled to give media their first hands-on demo of our biggest and most ambitious project to date, Dying Light. But there's more! You, the gamers, are the most important people in this project, so before the show we're giving you a glimpse into the unforgiving world of the game," the PlayStation blog states just below the game-play trailer.
Published by Warner Bros, the game is a first person action-packed horror adventure. A predator-struck open world gives the user ample opportunities to explore the environment and survive. The player travels across the urban environment facing the predators scavenging for food and developing custom-made weapons in order to survive. The night hours make the game more aggressive with more predators hunting for the player.
The game features free run movement of the player in which the user can see the player's hands and legs while climbing, jumping and running which delivers a real-time feel to the user. More weaponry, including knives, bats, axes, sledgehammers and other exotic weapons has been introduced.
One can even craft one's own weapons in the game. The Dying Light official website states: "Why use a wrench when you can use a wrench wrapped in electrified barbed wire? Dying Light's sizeable crafting system enables players to create a slew of new, more potent weapons and equipment, as well as specialised ammunition."
Dying Light is Techland's first game powered by Chrome Engine 6 which is the developer's self-made technology for new age gaming consoles along with Direct X 11 and other solutions.
The user, before starting the game, can choose from among the four fully customisable characters. The website also states that no internet connection is required in the single player mode unlike 1-4 players (co-op multiplayer) mode when playing on the PC.
