On Saturday night, Spike TV hosted its annual video game awards show with a new title – the VGX. It was a smaller, scaled down event that focused more on the games than the celebrities. Whether or not this new format was successful is up to gamers, but we can at least enjoy the new gameplay reveals that came from the show.
Dying Light, one of the most anticipated games of 2014, received a new live gameplay demo at the event. In past gameplay videos, it’s been reiterated that Dying Light is a parkour game with zombies. While that remains the case in this latest video, we’re treated to a new few new features.
For starters, the game takes place in an open world. While you’re encouraged to take on missions, players can do whatever they want. Past trailers have shown players taking on missions from saving survivors to picking up supply drops, but this latest gameplay demo was all about the freedom offered to players.
It was previously stated that Dying Light would be out in early 2014, but the date is now set to just sometime in 2014. The game will be out on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.[Image: gametrailers/YouTube]
