With the next generation of consoles upon us, Techland has harnessed the added power to develop a physically based lighting system using its in-house Chrome Engine 6. This allows them to not only create realistic lighting and shadows in the game world but more importantly make the game world more authentic and immersive.
In the 11-minute video, players get a look at "daytime" in the vast and dangerous world of Dying Light.
During the day, players traverse an expansive urban environment that has been overrun by a vicious outbreak, and must scavenge the world for supplies and craft weapons in order to defend themselves from the growing infected population.
If players find themselves overwhelmed by infected, they'll have to choose between fight or flight. Thankfully they'll be able to run seamlessly around the world - from the rooftops to the ground, and everywhere in between - with the game's free-running movement.
Every choice in Dying Light has different consequences... what will you do?
