Acerca de este juego

Dying Light es un juego de acción y supervivencia presentado en perspectiva de primera persona. El juego está ambientado en un mundo abierto enorme y peligroso. Durante el día, deambulas por un entorno urbano devastado por una misteriosa epidemia, buscando suministros y fabricando armas que te ayuden a derrotar a las hordas de enemigos descerebrados y hambrientos de carne humana que ha creado la plaga. De noche, el cazador se transforma en la presa cuando los infectados crecen en tamaño y agresividad - pero todavía más letales son los depredadores nocturnos e inhumanos que salen de sus colmenas para alimentarse. Tendrás que hacer uso de todas tus habilidades y de todos los medios disponibles para sobrevivir hasta el amanecer.

Good Night. Good Luck.

  • Bienvenido a la cuarentena – Experimenta una historia intensa y original ambientada en una ciudad infectada, aislada del mundo exterior. Solo los más aptos tienen alguna esperanza de sobrevivir.

  • Un enorme mundo abierto – Dying Light te permite recorrer un extenso mundo sumido en el caos y la destrucción. En este entorno diverso, luchas por sobrevivir contra muchos tipos de enemigos, ya que los infectados no son la única amenaza: a menudo, enfrentarte a otros humanos desesperados es la única forma de conseguir valiosos suministros.

  • La noche cambia las reglas – De día exploras la ciudad en busca de suministros y armas. Cuando cae la noche, sin embargo, este mundo infectado sufre una drástica transformación que le da una nueva dimensión al juego. Tú, cazador de día, te conviertes en la presa. Los infectados crecen en fuerza, pero algo incluso más siniestro acecha en la oscuridad para comenzar su cacería.

  • Movimiento al estilo parkour – Ya estés cazando o huyendo de los cazadores, puedes moverte por la ciudad con facilidad y rapidez. Salta de un tejado a otro, escala paredes y ataca a tus enemigos desde lo alto. Dying Light ofrece a los jugadores una libertad de movimientos nunca vista antes en juegos de mundo abierto.

  • Combate brutal y visceral – Lucha cara a cara usando una amplia gama de armas cuerpo a cuerpo: cuchillos, bates, hachas o herramientas de destrucción menos corrientes. ¡Acaba con tus enemigos, cercena sus miembros y salva tu vida!

  • Armas de fuego – Potentes pero ruidosas. Utiliza pistolas, escopetas y rifles para obtener ventaja ante los enemigos, pero recuerda que los disparos pueden atraer y atraerán atención no deseada.

  • Fabrica tus propias armas – ¿Por qué usar un simple cuchillo de carnicero cuando puedes acoplarle un mechero para quemar a tus enemigos? ¿O envolver un martillo con alambre de espino electrificado? Dying Light te permite crear tus propias mejoras para las armas y fabricar herramientas de combate cada vez más eficientes.

  • Conviértete en el héroe de la cuarentena – Dying Light incluye elementos de juego de rol que te permiten desarrollar al protagonista y ajustarlo a tu estilo de juego. El camino de novato a mala bestia es largo y tortuoso.

  • Elige tu estilo de juego – Usa armas, el entorno y las trampas colocadas por otros supervivientes. Provoca a grupos de enemigos para que se ataquen entre ellos. Completa objetivos de día o de noche. Aprovecha la oscuridad, la niebla y las tormentas para ocultarte. Cambia las tornas a tu favor con artefactos de ataque y defensa. ¡Tú decides!

  • Horas de juego – Descubre una historia emocionante, completa más de cien misiones secundarias y pon a prueba tus habilidades con los retos especiales.

  • Modo cooperativo para 4 jugadores – Colabora con otros jugadores en las condiciones extremas de un apocalipsis zombi. Muestra tu individualidad y personaliza tu personaje.

  • Sé tú el zombi – Un modo online único en el que juegas como zombi. Si alguna vez has soñado con acechar a otros supervivientes, esta es tu oportunidad. ¡Que comience la caza!

  • Gráficos y realismo asombrosos – Dying Light es el primer juego basado en Chrome Engine 6, la última y revolucionaria versión de la tecnología patentada de Techland. Creado desde cero con las consolas de nueva generación y los gráficos avanzados de DirectX 11 en mente, ofrece un nuevo nivel de calidad visual, efectos especiales y condiciones meteorológicas dinámicas, manteniendo al mismo tiempo una eficiencia sin igual.

Muy bueno el juego, recomendado para los que les gusta el parkour en videojuegos tipo Assasins Creed pero con mejores efectos, y a los que le gustan los zombis. Lo unico malo, fue el final. Esperaba màs accion, como en algunos momentos del juego

This game sold me on the amazing parkour and freerunning; I've never had so much fun running and jumping among rooftops with friends. It is such a rush! Visually its pleasant to the eyes and the combat can be fun later in the game when you learn new physical moves and can create weapons such as the exploding ninja stars. The sound is well done. If you shoot a gun in the city you can hear the stronger "28 Days Later" zombies coming your way from all directions. And let me tell you, once night comes it's no joke. The zombies become real strong and 'volatile' not to mention its tougher to run and jump from building to building because you can't see. I obtained the elixir/potion creation ability early on and it made all the difference at night. One potion allows you to see at night and this makes it easier to play cat and mouse and get more points for surviving the night outside a safehouse. Now to the story. It's nothing special and the ending was dull but trust me the game is so much fun due to the parkour that you won't care. I loved it. 10/10.

About 55 hours took me to finish that game. And I need to say that was a good time with a great game.
If you haven't played Dead Island:
This is mix of zombie survival horror with parkour simulation and RPG elements like quests and character progression. Is this good mix? It's more than good, it's great! And I need to say that literally all elements of that game work just fine. I haven't experienced any annoying bugs. Graphics and music/sound are excellent. This is absolute great game, you have to try it if you like good games.
If you played Dead Island:
This is very similar game, but improved in every aspect and many new possibilities are added. You will not find any places you can't reach, day/night mode is probably the best I've ever seen. If you liked Dead Island, you will love Dying Light.

VERDICT:
This is absolutely must have for all gaming maniacs.
But if you're not gaming maniac, who the hell are you and what are you doing here?

Intro & Summary
Somewhere between a fantastic City Sandbox, a fair Survival Game and a good Parkour world. With some forgiveable failures and interesting genre meshes, it's a fun time.

Highlights
Most people like to call this "Dead Island done right", and I'd agree, but I'd also call it Assassin's Creed done right, and a few others. It takes elements from lots of other games, and doesn't add anything, but enhances them to the point that they fit very well and add to the game.

* The crafting system is basic but good, and gives you a desire to collect.
* The parkour is basic but good, and makes you love running from building to building.
* The tech tree is basic but good, and fits very well.
* The combat, exploration, world are all basic but good.

Mistakes
There are a few, and they're mostly what you'd expect from an AAA title, but they're mild enough, or the rest of the game is good enough, that they're forgiveable.

* The storyline is complete trash.
* The characters are worse. There is no character development, at all and basically no arc or story curve.
* The voice acting is a mixed bag of fairly good and terrible.

Recommendations
Priced at £39.99 at the time of review. Personally I don't think any game is worth this much, but compared to other triple A's its pricetag isn't too inflated. It works out a quarter cheaper if you have friends and use the 4-Pack option. It'll likely go on sale fairly regularly, so wait for a saving of at least 50%, since it's nothing special vs other Sandboxes.
The DLC scheme is a complete joke and offers 2 Quarantine Zones, which were one of the most boring part of the game, and cosmetics. In short, completely ignore the DLC.

Dying light review by Mikha:
First things first. this game is made by the same developers what made the dead island games.
Those games compared to this game. This is basically a improved dead island but with a better and improved combat system and mirrors edge free running.
Dont get me wrong, its not a bad thing because the combat in dead island was clunky. Its still a little clunky but way better now.

The story:
You play as Kyle Crane. A GRA operative who is being dropped in the quarentine zone to get certain files back from a badguy. Later you find out its Rais. Just as I expected the game has its zombie cliches like everybody you start caring about around you sacrificing themselves to save you or so that you can get away. Which I personally hated. As for Rais. He is basically a wannabe Vaas character but way more depressing and kinda boring to be honest. but if you look around those cliches the story is still quite enjoyable as it takes you from the sewers to the highest towers and you can roam around in the open world city of harran filled with zombies. Also the voiceacting is welldone. the only thing that I asked myself is why everybody you meet in the game has some kind of accent which annoyed me a little bit.
Story:7/10

Gameplay:
The gamplay has basically 2 mechanics. Combat and freerunning. these feel both smooth and I enjoyed just loading up the game to slash and crash trough the zombie hordes. As for the freerunning its pretty well made, smooth, fast, dynamic and fun :)
as we are talking about dynamic anyway, there is a day and night cycle present in the game. At day the zombies are slower and not much of a treath except when they are in large groups.
But at night it all changes. Now you are the hunted instead of the hunter. which is scary but also pretty exciting as you ran across rooftops to escape the volatiles (stronger ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ zombies who are fast as hell). This makes you think twice about fighting them because they are pretty strong.
overall you have a lot of different weapons you can find by looting or killing enemies. The weapons range from Basic baseball bats to Rifles and shotguns.
The shooting mechanic is pretty wel done.
Gameplay: 8.5/10

Co-op and multiplayer:
You should already know this but there is a multiplayermode where one of the players can invade another players game at night to stalk him and kill him. This is called be the zombie.
Its a fun mode but it gets boring fast if you dont play with your friends.
The more fun part is the co-op greatly integreated in the singleplayer mode. Your friends can just jump in and out of the game, you can play the entire campaign together or just have fun doing Running and fighting challanges together.
there are up to 4 slots for the co-op so dont expect suddenly 63 other survivers in your game.

Overall verdict:
I really enjoyed this game and am excited for the content they are going to give us in the future. although the story isnt the best part the gameplay makes up for it. And its fun as hell to play with friends.
I really recommend this if you like a good zombiegame. ( or if you actually liked dead island)
Dont buy it for the story cuz I guess you will come out a bit dissapointed.
I will give this game a 8.7/10

PS: there are some bugs in the game but nothing major or gamebreaking. most being connectivity problems with co-op.

Dying Light is in many aspects similar to the Dead_Island-Series. But it adds a few very interesting aspekts (Just thinking about the free-running-aspekt or the Differences between Day and Night). In addition to that it offers a fresh, new lokation which offers you many different ways to kill zombies.
Also the grafics have been removed and the Dev-Team worked on the Fighting-tecnincs.
For my taste the weapons still get too fast damage and get destroyed.

Dying Light is a really fast and fresh Zombie-Shooter which includes a few really interesting aspekts.

8,5/10

If you don't like Dead Island odds are you won't like this. To start the graphics are amazing on max and all the performance issues besides AMD ones are fixed. The story is way better than dead island and gets really good at points and really boring and tedious at others, If you like killing zombies and running for your life then get this game.

Was perfect until all the updates came out. I love the updates, but it now lags the crap out of me. I have the highest AMD in the world, and it still lags. So, if you guys lag, it's not all because of the PC. Something was wrong when they started to code.

Dead Cool

Whether their Romero “shamblers” or Dawn of the Dead (2004) “sprinters”, there’s just something cool about zombies which elevates them above all other B-Movie monsters.

They’re human, they used to be us and that thought is as scary as hell.
An Outbreak starts with just one infected but their numbers continue to grow as ours diminish, if we get bitten, we’ll turn ourselves.
It’s such a perfect apocalyptic scenario and one which is happily experiencing a renaissance at the moment.


The Rise of the Zombies

From reality TV shows to block buster movies, Video games to survival manuals, zombie pop culture is everywhere these days and I love it.

I’ve seen all the movies, I’ve watched all the TV shows, I’ve played most of the games, I’m a consumer of all things zombie (although, should the opportunity arise, don’t actually consume a zombie, it’ll only end badly for you.)


Morning has Broken

I’ve also put a lot of thought into what actions I would take should I open my curtains one morning to find the zombie apocalypse taking place on my front lawn.

Amongst all my plans of stockpiling Pot Noodles and keeping a bucket in the attic to poo in, I’ve never considered that being skilled in the art of parkour might be a useful survival trait; at least I hadn’t considered it until very recently when I stumbled upon my latest piece of zombie content to consume.


Apocalypse All Over Again

You remember the first Dead Island game? It was pretty good right? Well the fine folks at Techland have released another tasty undead treat into the world, a stealthy, action, parkour, survival zombie treat in the form of Dying Light.


City of the Dead

In Dying Light the undead plague has emerged, but the powers that be have responded quickly and contained it to a small area, the fictional city of Harran.

Quarantined off from the rest of the world and relying on vital air drops courtesy of the Global Relief Effort, the situation inside the city continues to deteriorate, and if HBO’s The Walking Dead has taught us anything, it’s that you don’t just need to worry about the undead, other groups of survivors can be for more deadly.

This rings true in Dying Light as a gang mentality has gripped the crumbling city of Harran where two prominent groups are vying for supplies whilst struggling to survive the undead, but all is not lost...


Keep Taking the Pills

Whilst there isn’t a cure, there is a medicine (Antizen) that the infected can take which delays the turning, as long as they keep taking Antizen they’ll be ok, however the only source of this medication comes from the supply planes flying relief missions over the city.


Going Down

The game opens with your character preparing to parachute into Harran whilst receiving instructions from his employer over a radio; it seems that there is a survivor in the city that holds some very sensitive information, information which cannot be made public and it’s your job to retrieve it.

You’ll then find yourself falling through the sky towards the infested city, but things don’t start off well at all!

A hard landing and an encounter with the locals (both the alive and dead varieties) later and you’ll be bitten, infected and dragged to the first safe zone of the game. This is where you man hunt truly begins.


Running Man

From this point you’ll be meeting new characters and trying to earn their trust by running missions for them, and I literally mean running, the big thing that sets Dying Light apart from the Dead Island titles is the “Free Running” game mechanic.

You’ll be tearing across roof tops, leaping alleyways and scaling the sides of buildings.

The safest way to stay alive in Harran is to stay off the ground; a casual walk down the street will see you surrounded and overwhelmed by zombies quicker than you can say “Assassins Creed of the Dead”.


Long Jump

In the increasingly crowded zombie gaming genre this parkour style of play is hugely refreshing and better still it is exceptionally well implemented.

With a gamepad in hand, you’ll find the controls are really dialled in, look where you want to go, hit the jump button and there’s a good chance you’ll make it, it’s not only intuitive, it makes you feel like a free running bad ♥♥♥!


Do me a Favour?

The missions themselves are the usual mix of “go there”, “kill that” and “fetch this” quests that we know and love, completion of which will give you the experience you’ll need to level up your various abilities enabling you to hit a little harder and jump a little further, you might even learn some new skills along the way.


Be Crafty

Dying Light also boasts a pretty deep crafting system. You’ll be rummaging through bins and patting down corpses like a perverted Womble looking for the things that every day folk leave behind.
There are plenty of crafting recipes to learn, from Med Kits to Molotov’s there’s a plethora of useful items and weapons just waiting for your crafty hands to bring them into existence.
I can’t overstate how useful a well placed Molotov is when you’re in a tight spot.


Zombie Farm

All zombies are not born equal in Dying Light, the recently infected will move a hell of lot quicker than the common stale variety of zombie you’ll see shambling around.
You’ll discover zombies that spit, zombies that explode, radioactive zombies in hazmat suits, and plenty of others, Hazmat is a dangerous place to explore at any time of day.


The Dead of Night

But at night, that’s when things really become scary. The whole atmosphere of the game changes when night falls, it’s much tenser and you really want to stay out of site, stealthily moving from one secluded spot to another. You really don’t want to attract any attention at night.

There are super fast zombies lurking in the darkness and you’re going to have trouble outrunning them. The pitch dark makes your parkour aerobatics much more difficult to pull off as you rush through the streets, the feeble pool of light from your torch dancing along the landscape in front of you.


Sleep It Off

Being outside at night is a serious business, but you do have the option to sleep through the night in a safe zone if it all becomes a little too much, although some missions will require you to go out at night, there’s no avoiding it completely


Dead Pretty

In addition to the daytime being slightly less stressful, being out in the sunlight gives you a chance to drink in the scenery, the city of Harran can be a visually stunning place to explore.

From the sun bleached rooftops to the ominous darkness of the underpasses, everything about Harran exudes atmosphere, the whole city feels alive, which is no easy feat for a city full of the dead!


Dead End

If the Dead Island games were the warm up act then Dying Light is the main event.
With glossy visuals, satisfying combat mechanics and an outstanding parkour system, Dying Light is a fantastic game and the city of Harran is a beautifully realised setting begging to be explored.

You should take the time to visit, just don't go for the night life, it's dead.

This was one of (very few) games that got me psyched about 2015. The concept was excellent, and a lot of the time, the game delivered.

Pros:
- Excellent visuals got me standing on a rooftop just looking towards the rising sun (just before jumping down and bolting because some ♥♥♥♥♥ *** Viral is chasing me), although, I did have to run on medium textures as the mere 2GB frame buffer of my GTX 960 (don't even say it) had the game stuttering
- Free-running mechanic is, in my opinion, the best of any video game (beating AC and Mirror's Edge)
- Excellent combat system, making me think about how to best use the available stamina to either kill all of the zombies in my vicinity or run
- Wide range of weapons (plus some interesting modifications)
- Hilarious drop kick
- Brilliant Easter Eggs (my favourite was the Plants Vs. Zombies one)
- Interesting variation of zombies (demolishers were a particular pain in the ***)
- Excellent community had me make a couple of Steam friends
- Brilliant PvP gameplay, really gets you thinking about tactics to get the kills (especially on the zombie side)
- Good skill tree system allows well progressed development of in-game skills

Cons:
- Mediocre story with a disappointing QTE ending (although, in terms of plot, I don't think the ending was all bad, just enough to want me coming back for more)
- Disappointing characters with no real depth (I'm looking at you, Crane and Jade). I just didn't feel connected to the characters (although, I found myself a little moved at Rahim's death)
- Dumb ♥♥♥ villain with a philosphy and physique ripped straight out of Far Cry 3
- ****ing torch
- Lack of content in terms of missions (approximately 45 in total)
- Little emphasis on stealth (especially with human combatants)
- Lack of character customisation, possible inclusion of character creation (although, with developer tools being released, at least outfits should be fair game)

I would have liked to see more focus on specialisation rather than maxing out all skill trees, would have allowed for a greater variety of gameplay styles (I'm more in the mindset to avoid zombies and hit hard and fast on reduced numbers when I have to).

I love this game, and I will continue playing it in coop and PvP. I sincerely hope they release a DLC continuing with the story (or branching off and creating a new one). I don't agree with the hate on this game's ending. Going to Dr. Camden and curing the virus would have been way more anti-climatic than the current one.

Props to Techland for the excellent game (and leaving the ****heads at Deep Silver for the disappointment that was Dead Island).

Finally a first person Zombie game done correctly, Two fairly large environs to play in giving plenty space for exploration and some madcap zombie killing set pieces, The graphics if you have the hardware are very nice and the game seems to be well optimized unlike most open world adventures that are multi-platform.

The only real downsides to the game as far as I have experienced so far is the generic story with cartoonish central villain whose motivations for what he has done and what he enacts during the game are pretty weak to say the least but the gameplay is more than strong enough to over come the short comings in the generic story. If you have a decent computer to run this at high settings and above then this game is a very good game and I would reccomend it to any fans of open world games or who still have the stomach for yet more zombie fun.
