Warner Brothers have announced they are to publisher Dead Island developer Techland's next major project called Dying Light, which features an open world with scavenging by day and survival by night.
Night-time brings with it increasingly dangerous levels of infected to beat back, using the gear and supplies we've scrapped. It's for current and next-gen, as well as PC.
"We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles," said Warner Bros' Kevin Kebodeaux.
"The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title." The studio is pulling out all the stops with their sandbox title, and introduces some freerunning mechanics to make exploration more exciting.
"The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle," said Paweł Marchewka, CEO of Techland. "Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."
It's a first-person shooter set in a "portentous day-night cycle" with a vast open world, boasts Techland.
Dying Light releases on Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2014.
