It's not surprising that Techland, the creators behind the somewhat flawed, yet ultimately fun Dead Island games, are geared up for yet another zombie apocalypse with Dying Light.

The game will differentiate itself from the Dead Island series by introducing a new night and day mechanic, where players will traverse the expansive environment while scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons during the day, and then become the hunted at night. The more frightening, dangerous and aggresive infected will come out during the night, so it's up to the player to be prepared for it..

The game will also feature heavy free running mechanics to make the player feel more nimble, and allow unrestricted exploration around the open world.

Dying Light however won't be published by Deep Silver, the publisher behind the Dead Island games, but rather fall under Warner Bros. wing.

"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."

Dying Light will be available in 2014 on current-gen consoles as well as the PS4 and Xbox One and PC.
