Dead Island developer Techland is evolving more than just the zombie genre gameplay concepts with their upcoming title Dying Light as the developers also continue to push the technology of the company's in-house Chrome Engine forward. The latest showcase of its tech prowess comes with this trailer demonstrating the game's so-called physically-based lighting system:
With the next generation of consoles upon us, Techland harnessed the added power to develop a physically based lighting system using its in-house Chrome Engine 6. This allows them to not only create realistic lighting and shadows in the game world but more importantly make the game world more authentic and immersive.
Coming in 2014, Dying Light is a 4 player co-op action survival game set in an open world, boasting a bone-chilling day & night cycle. With the muscle of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Techland is delivering a truly next-gen experience on full display in the trailer below. This is also the first look at a new location in the game, Old Town, and is completely different from everything that has been shown from Dying Light before.
Watch it below.
In addition to the X360, XB1, PS3 and PS4, Dying Light is also coming to PC in 2014.
