Best PS4 Games #22 – Dying Light

Developer: Techland

Synopsis: Zombies, as a media concept, have been done to literal death. However, when it comes to an open-world video game setting, few have ventured forth to capture an audience in this realm. Dying Light is a natural progression from their methods, bringing intensive cycles between day and night action for a first-person thriller with action-RPG elements that breathes new life into the genre. Whether it be running away from night terrors to the safety of your camp or driving around the world in makeshift vehicles, there are tasks to accomplish in this new-look world.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: The systems of which Techland has been built upon have reached their logical conclusion with Dying Light. Freedom of movement allows players to traverse the world in a number of ways other titles dare not provide, giving a different scope towards zombie action. How you upgrade your character, including focuses on movement, melee and ranged weaponry, adapts to your playstyle, allowing you to take on the world according to your ideals. The pacing that drives gameplay keeps players on their toes and gives Dying Light an edge over the competition.
