'Dead Island is our child'
The status of Dead Island 2 is up in the air after publisher Deep Silver took developer Yager off the project last month. Chances are that it's not dead given that Deep Silver has already sunk money into the project and ...
Maybe not for Xbox One and PS4?
Dying Light was bloody brilliant. Sure, the main story was generic soldier wank that I mostly ignored, but the side missions were incredible and simply running around the city was so much fun. I’m not entirely sure abou...
With dirt buggies and bows
Zombie free-running game Dying Light teased vehicles as a part of its DLC plan earlier this month. Indeed, Techland has confirmed that all-terrain dirt buggies are a big part of the, "feature-heavy, story-based expansion pack...
'Future content additions'
The official Dying Light YouTube uploaded this look back on the first six months of post-release support Techland and Warner Bros. gave Dying Light through its season pass and occasional free update.
It's been a huge success...
Techland is doing its damnedest to take the piss out of Destiny. You know, that "wow, this is really yellow, actually it's almost orange; this cannot be good for my kidneys" piss. It's running a similar drink-based promo...
Totally 100% definitely happening
When a game is announced to be “on hold” or “on hiatus,” we usually just take that to mean it has been cancelled. Prey 2 was put “on hold,” and that still breaks my small, withered heart. I...
To make more Dying Light content
Hellraid was announced as a Dead Island follow up in 2013. We finally got a good look at it late last year following a delay for current gen and PC exclusivity. It was meant to come out this year, but that's not happening, H...
Gee, I really wonder what it could be
I’m going to play a little game with you called "guess the DLC". Dying Light is an open-world, cooperative zombie game with a heavy emphasis on parkour and violently slaughtering zombies in as many different ways as yo...
Only one game could fight off the zombies
Dying Light doesn't seem to have any intention of dying anytime soon. Three months after its initial release, it's maintained popularity through support of modders, new game modes, and wacky gags. Despite being widely av...
Keep this going for more than a day, please
For April Fools' Day tomorrow, Techland is bringing extra floaty physics to its open-world zombie-slaying game Dying Light, which has me wondering, why isn't that a permanent cheat code?
This is the sort of thing, weird and ...
When it comes to zombie outbreaks, it'd be foolish to go looking for a challenge. The easier you have it, the better. Why make a mockery of fate and scream "Come at me, bro?"
It may be ill-advised, but Techland's giving thos...
If you're finding Dying Light to be a bit too much on the easy side, then Techland has heard your zombie screams and announced that they plan on releasing a free content update that will add Hard Mode.
We weren't given an exa...
When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth
Dying Light Season Pass holders got their first taste of DLC today with the release of Cuisine & Cargo. It adds two missions to the game, both taking place in buildings sealed since the first days of the outbrea...
What a twist!
In a complete 180° from the events of last week, Techland has announced it will support mods for Dying Light. In an attempt to stop hacks for the "Be the Zombie" mode, Techland accidentally blocked modders from being able...
There is no princess in this castle
Dying Light is making plenty of headlines, and not only for its unique brand of survival horror. There's also a host of interesting Easter eggs that can be found within the game if you take the time out to find them. While t...
And with some patience
Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.
More games need drop kicks.
Hey, this is Hot Take! It's another new Destructoid video series! New videogames come out all the time, and we want to show you what it's like to play them; think mini-Let's Plays. Our inaugural episode is Dying Li...
Sorry, no nude zombies
[Update: Techland says it did not intend to create "obstacles" for modders. "With the recent patch (1.2.1) on Steam we blocked cheating to make sure the game's PvP system (Be The Zombie) would not be abused. This, however, ha...
We hardly knew ye
Destiny players have gone four months now without the comforting tedium of the loot cave -- a dark abyss that would yield decent gear drops in return for shooting at it for hours on end. Understandably, Bungie said that'...
Dead Island with fewer rappers and more polish
As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest.
It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
A dying light...
Techland did its best to hold off on handing out Dying Light review codes until the day before release. That's never good. But Techland doesn't need to cherry pick reviews for box quotes when it can pay for them. No, this is the future. And the future is sooo awesome!
Reviews missing in action
Releasing tomorrow (and the day after that on consoles in Europe), Dying Light is Techland's latest foray into the totally lacking field of zombie games. We're listing all the deals we've found thus far, including some for th...
Maybe we'll review this trailer
Chris already briefed you on the Dying Light review situation. It's grim, bleak, and kind of desperate -- a lot like a real zombie apocalypse, I guess. Good job, Techland; you've achieved perfect thematic #synergy.
Dying Light comes out tomorrow. So, where is our review?
Well, we don't have a code yet. Neither do a lot of other outlets. In fact, many reviewers just got their codes today, so if you see reviews out tomorrow, it'...
Weekend deals, yo
Next week Tuesday Dying Light will make it debut on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Originally pre-orders came with the "Play as Night Hunter" mode as a bonus, but it's now free to everyone. Kudos to angry mob effect. Current PC d...
Emails straight from our inbox to your eyeballs!
Today is was revealed that David Belle, the recognized founding father of parkour had in fact partnered with Dying Light to help the development team influence the game’s highly acclaimed natural movement system. Consi...
So about that Dying Light
Dead Island was a massive hit for Techland, due in part to the massively misleading trailer for the game. Having played through it with a co-op partner, I found some enjoyment out of it by way of the multiplayer element, but ...
Techland has gone ahead and cancelled the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of its free-running, first-person zombie game Dying Light. It will still be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year.
"After thorough internal tes...
Pre-order to play
Techland's Dying Light is just the latest game to include asymmetric multiplayer into its fold. Seems like everyone's doing it these days; it's been all the rage since Left 4 Dead did it all those years ago. B...
Footage of the hack-and-slash title running on a new engine
Techland's decision to delay Hellraid and move it to PS4, Xbox One, and PC seems to be paying off. That said, you may want to skip the first half of this 20-minute video -- it begins with the first level, which is slow to ge...
