Techland definitely has a thing for zombies.
The developer that brought you Dead Island is now focusing on Dying Light , which will feature a unique day/night cycle and a first-person free-running-type mechanic. It'll launch next year for both current- and next-gen consoles, as well as the PC.
And now, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a special Be the Zombie mode, which is exactly what it sounds like: Players will assume the role of the predator in this fast-paced multiplayer mode. Right now, you have to pre-order the game in order to gain access to this mode, but we have to assume they'll make it available for everyone at a later date.
In Be the Zombie, you will stalk other players as a night hunter, which is a freakish zombie mutation that has otherworldly skills like super speed and a grappling tool. This monster even has his own skill tree, so you can get faster and stronger as time goes on. We're interested to try this one out; provided the control is tight, Dying Light could be wicked fun.
