Those attending E3 2013 have been bombarded with advertising for a new survival horror game by Dead Island's Techland, Dying Light, which will also be published by Warner Bros. Interactive.

The game is described as "first-person, action survival horror game" where players will deal with a large urban environment which has been overrun by a devastating infection. They will scavenge for supplies and craft weapons to defend against the infected populace. At night, the infected become even more dangerous, while some creatures that only appear at night come out.

The bullet-list of official features includes:

* Survive the Night - During the day, players roam free and scavenge for supplies and weapons. But at night, the world undergoes a deadly transformation: the hunter becomes the hunted as the infected grow more aggressive and numerous, and something far more sinister awakens to stalk its prey.
* Free Running Movement - Whether tracking prey or escaping predators, Dying Light lets players swiftly navigate the world by seamlessly leaping between buildings, grappling up walls and pouncing on unsuspecting enemies.
* Open World Environments - Dying Light is set in a vast open world, delivering expansive and varied environments, a wide variety of enemy classes and a hopeless tale of survival where resources are scarce and the infected are not the only threat.
* Brutal Melee and Ranged Combat - get up-close using a variety of light and heavy weapons including knives, bats, axes, sledgehammers and more exotic weaponry or utilize guns and other firepower to take down enemies from a distance.
* Choose Your Play Style - Dying Light features four playable characters that can be fully customized and upgraded to match any play style.
* Craft Your Weapon - Why use a wrench when you can use a wrench wrapped in electrified barbed wire? Dying Light's sizeable crafting system enables players to create a slew of new, more potent weapons and equipment, as well as specialized ammunition.
* Breathtaking Visuals and Gameplay - Dying Light is the first game powered by Chrome Engine 6, a cutting edge incarnation of Techland's proprietary technology, designed from the ground up for the new console generation, DirectX 11 and other advanced solutions.

Dying Light will be released in 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Dead Island wasn't exactly a Night time horror either... none the less, looking very much forward to this game, Techland did a great job with Dead Island, can see Dying Light being even better.
