A new gameplay trailer for Dying Light, which showcases the game’s asymmetric multiplayer , has been released by Techland.

It also contains a full day and night cycle, over 50 hours of gameplay, an open world and co-op multiplayer for up to four players.

Beware survivors, you will be invaded, according to the game’s producer Tymon Smektala.

“The game is absolutely huge as it is, but to provide the ultimate zombie survival experience, we added an extra element of unpredictability to our nighttime gameplay, said Smektala. “Online players can face the threat of a possible invasion of their game by the Night Hunter, an extremely powerful, human-controlled zombie mutation.

“These invasions are an inherent part of Dying Light, available on all platforms for all online players from day one.”

Those who pre-order Dying Light will be able to play as a zombie. The bonus allows the player to take control of the Night Hunter and invade the online games of other players.

Dying Light can be pre-ordered from the game’s official website, from select retailers and is also available pre-purchase on Steam.

The game is set for release on January 27 in the Americas, January 28 in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30 in Europe and Asia.

It will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
