Techland's Dying Light is one of the most anticipated and ambitious games of the year.

The game blends multiple gameplay concepts into a fast-paced survival/horror package. There's some semblance of the free-running mechanic in Mirror's Edge , for instance, the zombie theme is reminiscent of the developer's Dead Island franchise, and the post-apocalyptic setting reminds one of The Last Of Us .

Put it all together, and you get a really intriguing game. Techland has released a new trailer today, called "Humanity," and it describes the desperate situation in which the player will find himself. The monsters – which used to be human – have essentially taken over the world, and you're just battling to survive. Scavenge for resources and weapons during the day; fight for your life at night.

Dying Light is slated to launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year. For more, check out our in-depth preview .
