Dying Light

We may not have Dying Light yet, but you can have a Dying Light trailer


Maybe we'll review this trailer
Jan 26
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. Even thou... read

Where is our Dying Light review?


Well...

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'... read

Do you trust Techland to make a good game?


So about that Dying Light
Jan 06
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 ... read

Dying Light's asymmetric multiplayer has a gross catch


Pre-order to play
Oct 02
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... read

A bunch of skeletons explode in the first 20 minutes of Hellraid


Footage of the hack-and-slash title running on a new engine
Sep 18
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... read

Dying Light has a sweet slide move


Developer diary focuses on movement
Aug 29
So I still need to actually play Vanquish in full, but that rocket knee slide? Good stuff. Dying Light's slide is not so cool, but with enough forward momentum, you could get a decent slide going.  I am only still ... read

Good things don't happen at night
Aug 08
As I wrote about at E3, there's a lot that you can do in Techland's Dying Light. First and foremost, you can run, jump, and grapple your way across terrain at a breakneck speed. You can take a break from traversal and use yo... read

Techland: We didn't want Dying Light to be Dead Island 2


Studio doesn't think of Dying Light as a zombie game
Jun 12
Ever since Techland's Dying Light was announced, it's drawn comparisons to Dead Island -- the studio's previous title. It's easy to see how many would come to that quick conclusion with it being an open-wo... read

Dying Light wants to make a murderer out of you


Murder or be murdered
Jun 04
Everything that we've seen of Dying Light thus far has looked neat, but kind of devoid of personality. It's just seemed like another zombie game with attractive running mechanics. This trailer bucks that trend and adds a bit of charisma. It also adds blood. Lots and lots of blood -- especially after the sun goes down. read

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... read

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


Techland is going for the when-it's-done approach
Oct 30
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... read
