Dying Light, a new Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 open world survival horror game, has been announced by Warner Bros. The game is in development at Dead Island studio Techland, and is due for release in 2014.

The game is said to feature a day-night cycle and a vast open world, with the player scavenging during the day and fighting off increasingly dangerous infected at night. You'll be able to craft weapons in order to aid your survival.

"We are excited to partner with Techland on Dying Light, which is an original gaming experience for next-generation consoles," said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations, Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "The partnership with Techland allows us to combine their successful development capabilities with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s one-of-a-kind publishing expertise to deliver on this title."

"The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle," said PaweĊ‚ Marchewka, CEO of Techland. "Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."

Yeah dead island meets minecraft indeed, can't understand why a day night cycle is that amazing though I'm sure that's been around since GTA 3 and quite frankly shocked when an open world game doesn't have it, dead island would of been so much more tense if it had this mechanic of zombies come out at night and you set up defences in the day. Wonder if they will give your character a watch too so you can check on time that would be another original mechanic they could pretend is new.
