If games like Resident Evil and Dead Space have taught us anything, it's that we love to be scared while playing video games. Being hunted through dark caverns with limited resources has long been a facet of great video games. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Techland have announced that they're throwing their hat in the ring with Dying Light, a new first-person, action survival horror game due out in 2014, available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC, in addition to the upcoming Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Here's the description of the game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment:
During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown. Players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning's first light.
"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 Pawe? Marchewka, CEO of Techland. "Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."
The idea that the game will be different based on the time of day that the user plays it is pretty cool. I wonder if it will tie in to the console's clock or if it will get the time from a server somewhere. You could have gamers altering the time on their console to finish certain tasks before the sun goes down.
What do you think of Dying Light? Are you more scared for the events during the day or the night?
