Dying Light is set to release worldwide tomorrow, bringing zombie-parkour to the next generation of gaming hardware. The game's launch trailer has arrived to keep the hype train rolling, showing off plenty of action and emphasizing the drama.

The game continues to look great graphically, and the ever-present parkour mechanics seem like a lot of fun. The day and night cycle, which greaty affect how you interact with zombies, should provide an interesting element to survival, but we'll have to see how it all plays.

Dead Island, also developed by Techland, was similarly alluring in brief clips and trailers, but I (and plenty of others) found the game itself lacking. Combat mechanics were rather bare, and the gameplay just didn't live up to the hype. It's hard to shake those disappointments off when looking at another zombie title from the developer, but Dying Light will be judged on its own merits. It's clearly a different type of game, and if the mechanics work as advertised, there's a lot of potential. We'll have our thoughts (and eventually a review) posted after we get our hands on the title.

It's worth noting that some release dates changed worldwide recently, only affecting the boxed version of the game. Dying Light will launch worldwide digitally for PC on January 27, 2015. The North and South America PS4 and Xbox One physical and digital versions will be available that same day. Dying Light's digital release in Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be January 28, 2015. Physical copies of the game will be released in those territories on February 27, 2015.
