These zombies are gonna make you climb the walls in ‘Dying Light’

In Techland’s “Dying Light,” you can traverse everything you see using the right shoulder button as you go after zombies. Simply run at a building, a wall or an obstacle, hold the button, and your character will traverse or climb. When you do so, you gain agility points, eventually leveling up so you can also slide, drop-kick, tackle and pull off a whole slew of other moves.

“Dying Light” also features both cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes, where humans can team up to play through the campaign, or take on the role of the zombies. The game is built on Techland’s proprietary Chrome Engine 6, and “looks beautiful, with highly realistic animations for the zombies and other characters, as well as fantastic lighting and weather effects,” writes Xbox Wire.

The game is due out in early 2015 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. To learn more, head over to Xbox Wire.
