Unlike The Evil Within and its freakish creatures, Dying Light‘s zombies won’t make you run and cower in the shadows. At least, not in the daytime, when the normal ones are out in limited force. Come nighttime, everything changes, but let’s forget about that for now.
What I’m trying to get at is combat – something that is a heck of a lot of fun in Dying Light‘s zombie-filled world, especially when you have the right weapons and mods equipped. To prove this, Techland has released not one, but two very short vignettes featuring a couple of the game’s more badass combinations.
First up is the baseball bat plus home run mod, which can send enemies flying with one powerful swing. Then, there’s the bladed axe and fireman mod coupling, which is as awesome as it sounds. Watch as it allows the player to sweep its blade around, cut enemies’ midsections and set them on fire all at once.
Dying Light — which was one of my favourite games of E3 2014 — will hit consoles and PC come January 27th.
