Polish developer Techland (Dead Island) announced today that its open-world zombie game, Dying Light, will be released on January 27 in North America, January 28 in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30 in Europe and Asia. That's slightly ahead of schedule, as the game was previously pegged to launch sometime in February 2015.
Dying Light is available for preorder today, and doing so gets you a mode called Be the Zombie. In this mode, you play as a special breed of extra-deadly zombie called the Night Hunter that is super fast and agile. Your task is to seek out and kill human players.
In addition to Dying Light, Techland is working on hack-and-slash game Hellraid. For more on Dying Light, check out GameSpot's previous coverage. If you're more into Techland's Dead Island series, there are multiple new games in that series in development, though none of them are being made by Techland.
