Here's our latest look at Dying Light photo
Here's our latest look at Dying Light
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Techland has released this latest look at Dying Light, emphasizing what they're trying to achieve with the narrative. It also shows off the gameplay a bunch, and it's looking pretty great. Oh and hey there's a little girl about to get attacked by someone. Will that actually be in the game? Someone think of the children!

This trailer is kind of funny overall, as the studio was teasing some sort of announcement last week. The teaser just turned out to be a new trailer. People were hoping for a demo, or even better yet a release date. Who teases a trailer after multiple trailers have already been released?

Oh, Techland.

Games with Gold: Dead Island, Toy Soldiers: Cold War photo
Games with Gold: Dead Island, Toy Soldiers: Cold War
by Jordan Devore

Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion is becoming a parody of itself. In February, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are once again getting two free titles, one that is the first installment of a popular franchise, and another that's an enjoyable but perhaps under-appreciated Xbox Live Arcade title. Those are Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War, respectively.

As ever, the first free game -- in this case, Dead Island -- will become free for Gold members on the first of the month. So, tomorrow. You'll then have until February 16 to download it at which point game number two, Cold War, goes free for the rest of the month.

You really should make a note to download that second one, though -- you get to shoot at tanks as an offbrand Rambo toy. It's pretty special. I also much preferred its setting over the first Toy Soldiers, so if you resisted it for similar reasons, consider getting the sequel.

When it gets dark, Dying Light will freak you out

Daytime? Nice, warm rays of orange sunshine as if you were perpetually awaking from a refreshing cat nap? Sure, whatever. Drop kick zombies freely, like you're Faith from Mirror's Edge. Even zombies look a bit silly and list...

Enjoy six minutes of Dying Light gameplay from VGX

Look, it may seem derisive to describe Dying Light as just "Dead Island + parkour" but dang if that ain't what it looks like. In this six-minute video you'll see some light traversal and some heavy-duty zombie bashing using ...

This Dying Light trailer shows some vibrant light

Techland has something it wants to show you. It's been working super hard to make sure you're impressed by the lighting effects in Dying Light. You gotta throw all these next-gen resources at something, after all. So, take a...

Hellraid won't be ready in time for release this year

Between Hellraid and Dying Light, it's the former Techland game I'm more curious about. (I'm burned out on the developer's zombie titles. Can you blame me?) While this does rather blatantly look like a project from the people...

Dying Light is surprisingly fun, and pretty damn intense photo
Dying Light is surprisingly fun, and pretty damn intense
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Spencer Hayes and I got some quality time with Techland's Dying Light and we both came away pretty surprised from the experience. The game features a day and night cycle, and the day time stuff we played was pretty average. We knew what to expect, especially after playing games like Dead Island, another open world zombie game from Techland.

But then the night time stuff came up and holy crap the game gets super intense. More importantly, Dying Light becomes way more fun. The zombies transform in runner style zombies like the ones from Left 4 Dead and they become relentless in chasing you down. My heart was seriously racing as I tried to escape the horde, so they've certainly nailed down the horror aspect.

So here's what Dead Island: Epidemic looks like

In Dead Island: Epidemic -- which is inexplicably a MOBA, if you missed the news -- three teams of four players each have to fend off zombies while also worrying about one another. And instead of base destruction being the wi...

This gameplay video shows what Dying Light's all about

A 12-minute gameplay video of Techland's Dying Light has surfaced, and it seems like "Fight or Flight" may have also been an appropriate title for the game. The free-running mechanics are on full display, and it looks f...

Dying Light feels, well, a lot like Dead Island photo
Dying Light feels, well, a lot like Dead Island
by Brett Makedonski

Despite it's oversaturation years ago, apparently zombie culture isn't going to die down any time soon. A steady stream of zombie-centric media is constantly flowing, and Techland is more than willing to take advantage of the craze. Dying Light is just the latest example.

If you're unfamiliar with Techland, it's the developer behind the Dead Island games. A lot of the same ideas from Dead Island are present in Dying Light, but the approach has changed a bit.

The obligatory CGI trailer for Techland's Dying Light

In typical Techland fashion, our first look at Dying Light in motion stems from a CGI trailer. I'm hopeful this is a good indication of the general vibe the studio is going for with its freerunning-centric zombie survival ti...

Hellraid gameplay trailer has so many skeletons in it

Techland's first-person fantasy slash-em-up Hellraid has my attention with this new trailer, which features zombie knights and skeleton warriors dying by the bucketload. It's being compared to Hexen, and that may be valid --...
