Sure, it might look a little like Techland's other IP, Dead Island , but Dying Light really is a very different beast.
They've sent over a gameplay walkthrough that's nearly 12 minutes in length, and you get to see how free-running combined with strategic zombie hunting can be quite unique.
There's no doubt in my mind that Dead Island Riptide felt stale; it just didn't do anything even remotely new and in some ways, it felt even less engaging than the first title. But Dying Light is looking awfully interesting, as we will combine the first-person free-running mechanics of Mirror's Edge and the post-apocalyptic universe of something like The Last Of Us .
See what you'll have to do to survive…
