Dying Light hands-on – Dead Rising 3’s first real challenger on Xbox One
Or as the kids are calling it, “Mirror’s Edge: Undead Nightmare”.
Ultra-empathetic dogs, magical clouds, story-driven online, the death of loading breaks – there are no shortage of next gen console gaming “trends” right now, but one that appears to have escaped notice is a penchant for agile protagonists. Consider Titanfall, in which spry grunts tumble and corkscrew from structure to structure, mocking the titanium giants who trudge through the streets below. Consider Sunset Overdrive, in which players walk casually off skyscrapers and into shoot-outs with festering orange muties.
