Dying Light to Launch a Month Ahead of Schedule


What’s this? A game actually coming out earlier than expected rather than being delayed? Well, kind of. Dying Light was previously delayed from this year to February 2015 after all. But even though the first-person parkour zombie survival shooter from the makers of Dead Island still won’t be out until next year, its launch has at least had its scheduled ship date moved up a month. In the Americas the game will now launch on January 27th, followed by releases in Australia and New Zealand on January 28th, and on January 30th in Europe and Asia.

Techland posted a fun little video on Facebook showing in-game footage of the player character opening a supply crate to reveal the image pictured above confirming the date.

Underneath that is the recently released video dev diary highlighting the game’s natural freedom of movement.
