Okay, so zombies aren’t exactly fresh. When you hear about a game that prominently features zombies, “innovation” probably isn’t the first word that leaps to mind. But consider this— take the free-running mechanics of Mirror’s Edge and combine it with a post-apocalyptic world that is reminiscent of The Last Of Us . …are you interested now? Techland’s Dying Light is ambitious in a number of ways, including the inclusion of a day/night feature that directly impacts the gameplay. Provided the control mechanics are solid, this one could be a blast.

During the day, you will have to scavenge for valuable supplies. Explore your rotting, destroyed environment in a desperate effort to find items that will help you survive. If you’re not successful, you could be facing your imminent demise when the sun sets. That’s when the baddies come out to play and you really need to be armed and fully prepared to face them. Whether it’s a sledgehammer or a machete, you need something to defend yourself because these zombies are immensely aggressive and even cunning. You will also have to use some strategy, because there will be very distinct types of the walking undead.
