VGX: Shedding Some Light on Combat

By CameronW08-12-2013

If Dying Light isn't on your ever expanding list of things to be hyped about in 2014, it should be. A little bit Dead Island and a little bit Mirror's Edge, the 6 minute live gameplay demo at VGX sure did make Dying Light look like a lot of fun.  The demo touched on the in-depth targeting of individual bones in combat, the parkour movement system, smashing skulls in the broad daylight, as well as reassuring that 2014 release date. I certainly hope it holds up when that time comes around.

It played better than i'd expect of a live demo of a game that isn't out yet. Hell, Black Flag's demo at E3 was an absolute train wreck and it turned out to be an incredible game. Only thing I saw wrong with this gameplay was Joel McHale. (and that guy that fell through the concrete)

It didn't play well. They may have improved it since, but the controls were clunky, and combat was slow and uninspiring.

Hell if I know what you're talking about, Freelancer. This looks great to me!
