With most zombie apocalypse-related games, players usually control a surviving human doing anything to stay alive, whether it’s beheading a number of the living dead, or slaying them with a number of firearms. However, there are those few games that enable players to play on the other side of the coin, living the life of a zombie as they hunt down human prey. Valve’s Left 4 Dead series for PC and Xbox 360 immediately comes to mind, along with other cult favorites, like Stubbs the Zombie and PopCap’s multiplayer-oriented Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
Now, Warner Bros. is getting into the act, as the publisher, alongside developer Techland, has introduced a new zombie mode for the forthcoming first-person adventure game Dying Light. In the trailer below (produced by Ayzenberg), players can get an idea of what to expect playing as a member of the living dead, quickly whisking its way across rooftops as it hunts down human targets, all for the sake of staying alive.
Dying Light will ship on January 27th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.
