Zombies! Love or hate ‘em, they are still a big part of pop culture. And later this week the next big zombie game, Dying Light 2, releases for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.

I was a big, big fan of the original game back when it came out in 2015. The mix of parkour and first-person melee combat really helped it stand out from all the other zombie games that had come before it. So I’m excited for more of that, but now on new fancy consoles! (Though Dying Light 2 is also still coming out on PS4 and Xbox One for those who are still unable or uninterested in grabbing a next-gen machine.)
