Spoiler alert: It's all about zombies

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 far more convenient to just flee from all those undead bastards instead of dealing with them.

Just make sure that you run to a safe corner to huddle up in by the time the sun goes down. You don't want any part of the graveyard crew in this game.
