Find your humanity in Dying Light

3 min read


When the zombie apocalypse finally hits, I recommend staying far away from me. Not because of the fact that I’m likely to be chowed on pretty soon after the outbreak, but because I’m more than willing to take a cricket bat and bash in some human skulls in order to survive said doomsday scenario. Am I losing my humanity? Buddy, it vanished a long time ago, much like it did in Dying Light.

Here’s the latest trailer from Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Dying Light, aptly titled ‘Humanity.’ APT I SAY! It’s all about the survivors of the apocalypse, or as my copied and pasted press release puts it:

Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released today a new trailer for Dying Light entitled “Humanity”. It shows the horrible reality of living in a zombie infested quarantine zone and how it changes people inside.

Dying Light’s “Humanity” trailer shifts focus from the infected to the survivors – people who had enough strength and luck to endure the outbreak. Yet, the worst is not over as in the quarantine zone every day is a struggle and every night is a challenge. Sadly, human mind can withstand only so much.

In what ways does the quarantine zone influence you? Does killing the infected really leave no trace on your mind? How long can you defend your humanity? What will happen when you eventually break?

I’m honestly looking forward to this game. My once pristine white undies are sporting 50 shades of brown at the shift between night and day, as the setting sun throws deadly undead obstacles at your way. I’ve loved the work that Techland has done so far with zombie games, such as Dead Island, which was a fun game with friends, but severely lacking on the single-player side.

Hopefully, Dying Light can find the balance between the two sides of the apocalypse when it shambles in later this year for PC, PlayStation 4,PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
