Set in a massive open world, players can choose to play in either single-player or co-op mode. During the day, they must traverse an environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging for supplies, crafting weapons and defending themselves from a growing population of infected. Once the night falls, "the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become more aggressive and more dangerous." Volatiles, a predator only active at night, will communicate with others in the pack and climb faster.
Although there isn't an official release date, Dying Light will be available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. It's been said that it is a combination of Dead Island, Fallout 3 and Mirror's Edge. You can sign us up for that right now.
Of course, reading about it is one thing. Seeing it in action is an entirely different experience. Have a look at the Dying Light Official Announce Trailer below. Be sure to let us know in the comments, do you plan to pick up this survival horror game in 2014?
