Techland, the developers behind Dead Island and the recent Dead Island: Riptide, have announced their new game today titled Dying Light. The game, which will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive, once again features an open-world environment to explore with the major difference between Dead Island being that this new title will focus on survival and traversing the game through free-running gameplay.
Early details state that during the day, players will need to scavenge for supplies and prepare for hordes, while at night features more relentless zombies that will try to pursue you.
Dying Light is scheduled to release next year for 360, PC, PS3, PS4, and the newly announced Xbox One.
Rockstar Games has announced a special edition and collector's edition for the September release of Grand Theft Auto V. Anyone who preorders the game receives a bonus item in the form of the Atomic Blimp, which is pictured below.
"High above the streets of Los Santos floats the Atomic Blimp, hawking Los Santos’ finest tire company (whose products are available in any LS Customs garage). Pre-order now to gain the ability to pilot the most iconic and leisurely aircraft in the Los Santos skies (please note that all pre-orders made before today will also get access to the blimp)."
The $79.99 Special Edition of the game comes with both physical goodies and in-game products, including the game inside a steel case, a boost to each character's unique abilities, additional weapons available in Ammunation, extra tattoos and outfits, stunt plane trial courses, and a blueprint map of Los Santos.
For $149.99, the Collector's Edition of the game gets you everything from the Special Edition and more including a Security Deposit Bag, Los Santos hat, new vehicles to drive around in, and classic GTA skins to use in multiplayer including GTA IV's Niko Bellic.
Both of these editions seem pretty sweet. I think I'm gonna try for the Special Edition if I can.
All of these editions will be available on September 17th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
