From the creators of The Witcher 1, 2, and 3, comes CyberPunk 2077. Though the trailer is only a couple of minutes long, it definitely action packed, is really interesting concept and leaves you wanting to know more about the game. The trailer song, just adds to the awe of the trailer. As one the top most anticipated games on my list, it promises to impress, especially with their track record on the successful Witcher franchise. There is a lot of speculation on whether it will be first person or third person shooter with RPG elements.
This is a great example of developer not trying to rush and get a game out on the shelves from the anticipated release date at the end of the trailer: "Coming: When its Ready" To check out their site and get more information check here: http://cyberpunk.net/

Dying Light is a first person action survival game set to release in March 2014. Taking place 2 months after an outbreak. An open world game, lets you roam seamlessly around the world with its free running movement. The objective of the walkthrough is for the player to reach 1 off 2 air drops that hold medical supplies. The time frame of the walk though has been accelerated to show the day time and night time game play.
The day time game play is similar to that of any current zombie game, where you run around and smash their heads in. Though some situations are much harder than others and the free running skills of the game are ideal to escape situations where fighting is not an option.
The night time game play is where it is different. The undead become the hunter, and have turned to "something much more sinister." The player uses "night sense" to avoid the undead, move through the world, and survive.
There some mechanics that are reminiscent of other games. Such as Mirrors Edge free running, Dead Rising's weapon creation, and Dead island game play. Overall the night time game is what sets it apart and will have to wait until more information is released. Have a look at the 12 minute pre alpha game play walkthrough to experience the full effect in full screen mode. Check out their site for updates: http://dyinglightgame.com/site
