Gamescom 2014: Dying Light Gameplay Trailer Shows Off 4-Player Co-Op

New trailer for free-running open-world game released ahead of German event next week.

Ahead of Gamescom next week, Warner Bros. and Techland today released a new gameplay trailer for 2015's open-world zombie game, Dying Light.

The intense, zombie-infested trailer shows off the game's key features, including its free-running elements, brutal melee combat, and four-player co-op. We also get a look at some of Dying Light's weapons and environments, and learn that you'll be able to swim underwater in the game.

Dying Light launches in February 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. Developed by Polish studio Techland (Call of Juarez, Dead Island), the game was originally expected to launch this fall, but was delayed in May so the developer could improve the parkour elements.

For more on Dying Light, check out GameSpot's previous coverage. Gamescom 2014 runs August 13-17, and GameSpot will be on the ground at the show bringing you all the news as it happens.

Looks good so far , we need a new zombie game out there plus i love zombies . If people dont like it they dont have to buy it simple as that , where all the hate coming from?

This is the kind of game that regardless if it's bad or good. The concept is enough for you to at least enjoy it a bit. Even without story or plot, the simple idea of free running away from zombies is inviting. lol


Coop free running zombie killing game with nice destroyable limb physics that turns into stealth at night. Sold, unless they really mess it up, I think this game will do fine.

Man this game would be so much better in 3rd-person. First person parkour is terrible just look at the grappleing hook scene it just looks like random cord come out of nowhere and you float up to the sky. Whatever I'll probably checkout this game anyway cause I can't turn down open world and zombies.

Here I was thinking that February was just going to be my month of playing The Witcher 3. The more I see of this game the more things I see and the more I like.

Probably wont buy Dead Island 2 because of this game but we will see...

It just depends how over the top DI2 is I'm not going to bother with it If its not realistic to a decent point.

This looks so good, but after Dead Island and the last few Call of Juarez games I'm quite hard to convince just with some videos that it will be good. I'm definetly going to wait for some reviews to see how this will work at the end.

Looks pretty awesome! Sold on it but still waiting to see actual game play. On a different note... it would be nice to watch the video without stupid side bar commercial videos going off ever 40 seconds on the page. -_-

Was hoping the trailer could convince me to get it.
It did not.

Looks neat, but I'm not satisfied by gameplay trailers where you never see a continuous clip of gameplay that lasts more than half a second to 3 seconds.  A good AV person could even make Ryse look sweet doing that.  This shows me nothing more than the original trailer did.

@vadagar1 A third post to make this point? Who cares this much, man. If you think it looks lame don't buy it. Maybe others feel the same way and it will flop and the devs will try something more to your liking.

I agree. Games like DeadRising and and CoD zombies cheapened the zombie theme. We need a real zombie game with actual survival horror in it. No more stupid weapons and and cheesy costumes.

@vadagar1 There are still games like that, just most of them are indie now, or not as big or mainstream as titles like this.

@alley3zonme Probably because people are sick of zombie games. There isn't a "need" there are plenty out there and more to come...apparently.

@Keitha313 See I feel like that's going to be the big split between the two games. I feel like DI2 is going to sort of have that Dead Rising feel to it and be a lot more light hearted and "fun," if you know what I mean, and Dying Light is going to be very super serious and that will split the player base for good or for worse.

@xantufrog @vadagar1 i want people to stop buying these lame games so that maybe someone can make a good one for a change

alley3zonme

But apparently not of the repetitive nature of COD games same stuff new name slapped in the cover.

@vadagar1 so what you aare saying is you KNOW what is good and the devs dont? thats nice to know mate.

@alley3zonme 1) Who said anything about CoD?


2) Zombies are a cliche enemy that are used in more games across many different developers. I mean for f*cks sake besides this, we have DayZ, we have H1Z1, we have the next Dead Island coming.


Before this was had State of Decay, Dead Rising 3, (arguably) The Last of Us, The Walking Dead. Zombies are beyond played out. So no another zombie game is not NEEDED, some people are sick and tired of them.
