Dying Light

Warner Bros. and Techland have released the opening cinematic from Dying Light, revealing the events that set the game’s story in motion.

Here’s the description, via Techland:

“The intro paints the background for a mysterious outbreak in the ill-fated city of Harran which the rest of the world can do little to help, setting the stage for a political tug-of-war between Harran’s Ministry of Defense and the Global Relief Effort – a privately funded international humanitarian organization.”

Watch the trailer below. If you missed it, catch last week’s story trailer here. Dying Light is due out PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 27 in North America and January 30 in Europe.
