Dying light is a game that even 6 months after release is still a full sixty dollars.  Instead of a reduction in price to boost sales, Techland has released a three hour demo of their game with the hope of it being so good  that people will feel compelled to purchase the full game.  Smart move, Techland.  I’ll admit that I’m surprised more games don’t release demos especially with how easy it is to do digitally, but I will definitely be giving this a shot.

Many of us have already played the more affordable Dead Island coming in at a whopping 20 dollars on steam or less with frequent sales, but those of us who are especially cheap* haven’t gotten our hands on Dying Light yet.  I may not buy the full game, but I’ll definitely play three hours of it.  Checkmate, Techland.

Here’s the scoop.

August 26th, 2015 – Wroclaw, Poland/ Techland announced today that a free demo of its critically-acclaimed zombie game Dying Light is now available to download on Xbox One and PC, with the PlayStation 4 demo out later today in North America. The demo lets players explore most of the Slums area and offers 3 hours of unique content, including one story quest chain and a number of side quests, challenges, and random encounters. It also features all the core gameplay mechanics of Dying Light, such as the day and night cycle, parkour-based Natural Movement system, creative brutalityand crafting. Additionally, the demo supports online co-op mode for up to 4 players.

“With the demand for Dying Light still high after more than half a year on the market, we wondered what else we could do to help players decide which game to buy’, “says producer Tymon Smektała. “Then we thought: demoes were pretty much a standard in the previous generation, but suddenly they’ve become few and far between. So we decided to use some of our resources to release a demo now and let everyone experience our game first-hand.”

The company also released a new gameplay trailer that shows over 15 minutes of uncut footage from the expansion, which you can view for yourself below.
