For some reason, Dying Light hasn't really been on my radar. But it should have been. Developed by the folks behind the Dead Island series, this shooter adds some unusual ingredients to the classic zombie-fest survival horror formula. Among them: co-op and first-person parkour. Just take a look at the launch trailer that went up this morning:
Yeah, I want to play that—and not just because I'm a Mirror's Edge fanboy.
Dying Light is out now on Steam. Thanks to Steam Play, buying a single $59.99 license entitles you to both Windows and Linux versions. The minimum hardware requirements don't look too strenuous, but the game does have a 40GB storage footprint. Also, Techland's recommended specs call for a Core i5-4670K with a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290. Yikes. No wonder the graphics in the trailer look so good.
