Dying Light Really Is Mirror’s Edge With Zombies

When Dying Light was first announced, it was billed as Mirror’s Edge with zombies. The comparison seemed a little simplistic and perhaps a disservice, but we couldn’t know for sure until we actually got to see some gameplay.

The wait for gameplay is over as IGN obtained 12 minutes of nothing but gameplay from Dying Light. I was hesitant to compare the title to Mirror’s Edge, but the first gameplay video proves it to be an apt comparison. There are some differences, however, with Dying Light looking a little slower than EA’s free runner.

Of course, Dying Light is also a zombie game. It’s made by the team at Techland that made Dead Island so you can expect to see plenty of weapon customization. The other interesting mechanic sees the zombies transforming into more powerful monsters at night where the player will have to either stealthily make their way through the environment or run to the nearest safe house.

Dying Light will be out in early 2014 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

    How is this Mirror’s Edge with zombies?

    It’s just Dead Island 2. The only free running I saw was basic sprinting and jumping. This is literally Dead Island 2.

      I’m pretty sure Dead Island 2 is Dead Island 2.

      Did you miss the wallrun and the pipe climb and the kicking, knobhead?

    This seems better and much scarier than a Dead Island 2. This is like eating ice cream off Babi Rossi & Nicole Bahls naked.
