During the day, players traverse an expansive urban environment that has been overrun by a vicious outbreak, and must scavenge the world for supplies and craft weapons in order to defend themselves from the growing infected population. If players find themselves overwhelmed by infected, they'll have to choose between fight or flight. Thankfully they;ll be able to run seamlessly around the world‹from the rooftops to the ground, and everywhere in between‹with the game's free-running movement. Every choice in Dying Light has different consequences. What will you do?
At night, it is you who is at a disadvantage. Without daylight, the senses of the infected become more acute while their thirst for human flesh skyrockets. They run, jump, and climb, so there is really no place where you are safe anymore.
In the first-ever trailer for the recently-announced title from WBIE and Techland, players will get a glimpse of what it takes to stay alive. As day turns to night, survivors race to a cache of supplies, but the pulse-pounding free run is only half the battle. Staying alive through the night, when the infected become even more deadly, is the real challenge. So run, boy, run, as Dying Light wishes you Good Night, Good Luck.
This allows them to not only create realistic lighting and shadows in the game world but more importantly make the game world more authentic and immersive.
