#13 Dying Light
- Developer: Techland
- Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Dying Light was created under Techland, who was also the developers behind Dead Island and as such, there are some clear similarities between the two. However, between the two video game titles, Dying Light certainly carries a more mature tone and bleak world.
The video game follows an agent named Kyle Crane who is tasked with infiltrating a quarantine zone city of Harran which has become infested with a virus turning civilians into ruthless zombies. Interestingly enough, there’s a twist on the day and night cycle in Dying Light. During the day, the zombies are more lethargic and easier to deal with, though once the sun set’s they become more aggressive and harder to escape.
Developers have also tossed in some parkour elements within the game allowing players to easily traverse the city and its obstacles when fleeing the undead hordes. Combat as well has been changed from the melee focus from what we seen within Dead Island to gunplay, giving players an action-adventure experience.
#12 Killing Floor 2
- Developer: Tripwire Interactive
- Publisher: Tripwire Interactive
Killing Floor 2 is aimed more at cooperative gameplay in this FPS survival horror title. Players will find that Killing Floor 2 takes place just a month after the events of Killing Floor where the bio-tech pandemic has spread rampantly.
Within the game, players will be forced to fight off Zeds, which are various zombie-like creatures. This is a wave-based gameplay style where you’ll be fighting off stronger and increasing amount of Zeds after each wave. There’s also boss fights to battle through, each of which will be centered around their own strategies and attributes.
As mentioned, this is a great game for multiplayer where groups of players can join in a match and attempt to survive the relentless Zeds wave after wave.
