Dying Light Story Trailer — He’s just a poor parkour instructor, leave him alone

By | December 10, 2014

Dying Light has parkour, an open world, and zombies. What more do you need? Well, a game’s gotta have a story, so there’s a story, and when there’s a story, there’s a story trailer. Such is the code of gaminghood these days.

The story is a big wad of playdough – all colors squeezed into one. Here’s the checklist:

Epidemic? Check.

Zombies? Check.

Quarantine zone? Check.

Undercover cop? Check.

Chaos? Check.

Moral ambiguity? Check.

Some dude saying, “I’m not a leader, I’m a @#$# parkour instructor!”? Big Fat Check.


Yeah, the story is ironed-on but the game looks hot. All that undercover blah-blah aside, the parkour is fast and offers some tense moments as seen in last year’s walkthrough. The key is working with the light of day, which is…dying. When the sun’s up, the zombies are slow and boring. When it goes down, it’s time to party…and parkour! Yeah, baby!

Survival starts PS4, Xbox One and PC in January 2015.
