Dying Light

Dying Light
Dying Light is a survival horror game set in the quarantine zone of the Middle-Eastern city of Harran, where a mysterious viral outbreak has caused a plague of hyper-aggressive, zombie-like creatures. Set in a vast open world, the player takes on the role of Kyle Crane, an undercover operative sent to infiltrate the quarantine zone and secure a file stolen from them by one Kadir Suleiman, a political figure gone rogue. Once on the ground, however, Crane is torn between helping the other survivors of the viral outbreak, or completing his mission successfully.

With a first-person perspective, Dying Light involves traversing vast stretches of a cityscape plagued with zombies using fluid parkour mechanics, allowing moves like climbing ledges, sliding, zip-lining and jumping from rooftop to rooftop. The quarantine zone, however, is far from harmless, and the player is forced to fight their way through both the infected and other desperate human survivors hunting for precious supplies. Unusually for a first-person game, Dying Light has a heavy focus on melee combat, and features over 100 weapons such as knives, bats and axes, as well as over 1000 possible new weapons that can be crafted. The weapons however, degrade very quickly and must be repaired, or replaced. Guns, while present in the game, feature limited ammo, requiring judicious use of them. Moreover, guns are loud, and can attract other infected towards the player.

Another unique point to the game is its dynamic day and night cycle, which has a serious impact on the gameplay. During the daytime, players must scavenge for supplies, do side-quests, rush to airdrops and set up traps. Come nightfall however, the infected gain increased senses and can sprint after the player, as well as being able to climb buildings and jump.

Dying Light has strong role-playing elements, with the player earning experience points for various actions in the game: combat earns Power points, parkour earns Agility points and completing missions or quests will earn Survival points, which can each be used in a skill tree to earn new skills and upgrades. Survival points, however, are deducted if the player dies during the daytime.

The game additionally features a co-op mode, allowing up to 4 players to share a game, and featuring customisable characters. Alternately, the player can choose the Be The Zombie mode, allowing them to become the zombie and stalk other survivors.
