Check out 90 minutes of horrifying Dying Light gameplay

Worst dentist ever

If there ever were a zombie apocalypse, I think the greatest skill one could have would be being able to run away from everything really, really quickly. I would take fancy parkour over a weapon any day, which is probably why I like Dying Light so much. Instead of trying to fight the hordes of undead, you’re running on rooftops to avoid them – and it looks like a lot of fun.

Ahead of the game’s launch this month, developers Techland have let loose a massive 90 minutes of gameplay. The gameplay was actually streamed sometime during the festive season, but considering we were all scoffing down food instead of watching the internet I’m not surprised we missed it. Fret not, because you can check out the full walkthrough below now that it has been all collected.

Most of the gameplay shown seems to be a lot further in than my preview allowed me to go last year, which means even the most diehard fans will find something new. There’s also a neat rundown of the various skills available for upgrade, which encompass movement, survival and attacking power.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Mirror’s Edge/ Zombie mash-up after getting my hands on it last month. The quests at the start seem to be fairly linear and straightforward, but the gameplay during the night completely changes everything. It’s tense, frightening and I’m pretty sure I screamed like a little girl when being chased by a few of the game’s monstrous Nightmares. Or at least more so than usual.

Dying Light is out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on the 27th of this month. Has it caught your attention yet or are zombies already old news?

  1. It looks amazing. The night fleeing/ combat gives me chills. This might be worthwhile checking out a year after it lands.

    Why would you spoil it for yourself by watching so much of it?

        And by the time we get it on Steam special end of the year we’ve already forgotten most of it.

          Or skipping it completely, cause it was overhyped…. like Evil Within.

    I still love the solution North Korea came up with in World War Z. They pulled everyones teeth so that the disease couldn’t spread.

    Not much of a Zombie game player anymore… Mostly because I played Resident Evil 2 when I was waaaay too young to do so!! Still my favourite game, but definitely scarred me for live!! Can’t play tense games, feel like I will get a heart attack every 5 minutes!!

    DRM type – Steam
    Notice REQUIRES INTERNET CONNECTION AND FREE STEAM ACCOUNT TO ACTIVATE.

    Instead of saying Dying Light is coming to PC, you said say Dying Light is coming to Steam. The Witcher 3 is coming to PC, Steam, GOG.

    Don’t support DRM. The Witcher 3 is coming.
