Techland also released the following description for the game:
The intro paints the background for a mysterious outbreak in the ill-fated city of Harran which the rest of the world can do little to help, setting the stage for a political tug-of-war between Harran’s Ministry of Defense and the Global Relief Effort – a privately funded international humanitarian organization.
Entering the quarantine zone established to contain the unknown plague, players will assume the role of Kyle Crane, an undercover operative sent on an infiltration mission that at first seems both necessary and morally clear, yet in reality turns out to be just a move in a game of chess for the highest stake.
Watch the trailer below:
Dying Light is scheduled to be released on January 27th in North America and January 30th in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
AHH!! I can’t wait! I am a HUGE zombie fan, and this looks like the zombie game I have been waiting for. Just the right amount of action, horror, and story to make it an awesome game. Let’s hope it pulls it off!
