Dying Light Release Date Confirmed

Techland's highly anticipated zombie survival-horror title Dying Light has finally been given confirmed release dates in a number of regions for 2015. These are January 27th in the Americas, January 28th for Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th for Europe and Asia.

For those that haven't been following the development of Dying Light, this game sees players scavenging for supplies and weapons during the day in the urban wasteland of Harran, while fending off the occasional plague-affected monster.

Dying Light is currently available for pre-order. If you secure your copy early, you will be granted access to a free DLC mode called "Be the Zombie", allowing you to invade other player's games as a super-agile "Night Hunter".
