As the rules that govern our civilization crumble, a new order of things is bound to emerge. In the latest trailer for Dying Light, Techland for the first time ever give a sneak peek into the storyline of their open-world, action survival game.
Looking for inspirations for Dying Light, we delved into classics of international literature, such as Albert CamusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s The Plague and Joseph ConradÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Heart of Darkness,Ã¢â‚¬Â explains Rafa? Orkan, a novelist and co-author of Dying LightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s story. Ã¢â‚¬Å“With our game, we wanted to evoke similar emotions and offer players an insight into how people react to the extreme.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Roaming a city devastated by a mysterious epidemic that turns people into zombies, players will assume the role of Kyle Crane, an undercover operative sent to infiltrate the quarantine zone. Sheer chaos, warring factions and a suspicious mission all tug at CraneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s decisions for what he has been told is Ã¢â‚¬Å“the greater goodÃ¢â‚¬Â. Yet who decides when greater good turns into necessary evil?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Going into Dying Light, I was blown away by the visuals of the game and was surprised by such a mature, intense script. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m honored Techland let me be a small part of this gritty tale of survival. CanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to see peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reactions when they find out whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really going on in the story and I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to play the game myself!Ã¢â‚¬Â says Roger Craig Smith, the voice behind Kyle Crane and known from such popular titles as Batman: Arkham Origins and many more.
