Dying Light Video Demonstrates “Next-Gen Lighting”

Welcome to the new age and all that, in which there is finally good lighting in video games. WB has posted a video the shows off what Dying Light’s, ahem, lighting looks like on “next-gen” (aka current-gen now that PS4 is out). Looks pretty pretty, right? Yeah. We’ve been getting a taste of this kind of thing all weekend with Killzone and Need for Speed blowing our TVs out in similar fashion. Excellent lighting is a great thing.

I would be remiss, however, if I did not point out something Valve did on PC eight years ago when they introduced the Half-Life 2: Lost Coast tech demo that they used to demonstrated their High Dynamic Range lighting systems. Here’s what that looked like.
