Dying Light dev diary discusses Natural Movement

Move throughout Harran with "ease and precision."

Dying Light

Warner Bros. and Techland have released the first video in a series of Dying Light developer diaries.

The first video explains the game’s “Natural Movement” system, which players will use to traverse the fictional city of Harran, a locale inspired by European and Middle Eastern architecture. Players will move with “ease and precision,” and “seamlessly connect” parkour-style movement with combat.

Watch the developer diary below. Dying Light is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in February 2015.
