Dying Light User Reviews
Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror game set in a vast and dangerous open world. During the day, players traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning’s first light.
Good Night. Good Luck.

Dying Light started out as a Dead Island sequel, but Techland made it a complete new video game because it would contain brand new features, such as a massive open world, new zombies, real time day/night cycle, better graphics, new game mechanics, and much more.
On October 29th, Techland confirmed that Dying Light would be cancelled on PS3 and Xbox 360 due to the graphics demands being too high for last-gen consoles since 200,000 objects would be displayed in the game and it wouldn't stay true to the core vision unlike the next-gen consoles. They also said that the game needed a "next-gen" feel.
When the sun goes down, the infected transform into something much more dangerous. They gain the ability to sprint after the player and have increased damage, as well as the ability to jump and climb buildings like the player.
There will be a pre-order exclusive game mode known as "Be the Zombie" that will allow the player to play as a zombie and join other players' worlds.

Two challenges were showcased with one being a fight to kill as many zombies as possible and the other being a race to an airdrop.
