10 Games like Dying Light to sink your teeth into

10 Games like Dying Light to sink your teeth into

By Jordan Gerblick 01 April 2020

The best parkouring and zombie bashing experiences you can get

Dying Light’s fast-paced parkouring combat, as well as near-limitless customization options, set it apart from most other survival horror games. Where Resident Evil and The Last of Us reward you for strategic, stealthy movement and resource conservation, Dying Light encourages you to sprint, jump, and bash your way through hordes of zombies at an exhilarating pace.

Of course, you have the option to avoid conflict and sneak your way to the finish line, but Dying Light’s strengths lie in its highly interactive open-world playground and acrobatic mechanics. Whether you’re looking for a similar gameplay experience, or simply a survival-horror romp with the same level of depth and attention-to-detail, here are the 10 games like Dying Light we recommend.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding is a game we had to include in our test suite, as it’s the first of many ‘strand-type’ games to be developed for the personal computer. This title is also home to one of the most convincing implementations of Nvidia’s DLSS AI upscaling technology, which to our eyes looks better than traditional TAA while delivering significantly higher frame-rates. Sadly, not all cards support DLSS, so we’ve left the feature disabled for this particular test — just know that there is far more horsepower that you can tap into here on RTX 20-series and 30-series hardware.

Let’s take a look at the comparison between the RTX 3070 and its bigger brothers first — how much performance do you lose stepping down from the RTX 3090 and 3080 to the more modestly-sized 3070? The 3090 has unsurprisingly recorded the highest 4K average frame-rate of any card we tested so far, at 105fps, with the 3080 close behind at 96fps. The 3070 still manages a respectable 73fps, meaning you’re getting around 75 per cent of the performance of the RTX 3080 for 70 per cent of its price — not bad.

Let’s compare the 3070 to some older cards too. The RTX 3070 leads the 2070 Super by 37 per cent and the RTX 2080 by a solid 20 per cent. If we go further back, we find a 120 per cent lead for the new card over the GTX 1070 and a 77 per cent lead over the GTX 1080 — enough to justify an upgrade, I would have thought, even without taking into account the fact that DLSS could significantly more performance on top of that.

Killing Floor 2

Dying Light isn’t a game that always demands calculated strategy, but Killing Floor 2 downright discourages planning in favour of fervorous, blood-splattered slaughter. And with a name like Killing Floor, you can safely bet you’ll come out the other side bloodied, a dripping sawblade bolted to your helmet, and a gleeful grin spread across your face.

Killing Floor 2 is a co-op horde shooter that takes the most crowded, frenzied bloodbaths of Dying Light 2 and makes an entire game out of them, except here you’re clearing through waves of mutant, failed science experiments called «specimens» instead of traditional zombies — in short, Killing Floor 2 is metal as hell.

It doesn’t deal solely in chaos though, as Killing Floor 2 also requires good teamwork. Assembling a team made up of the right variety of classes — of which there are 10 — could make the difference between climbing atop a mountain of your defeated enemies in triumph, and being swallowed by them.

Available on PS4, Xbox One, PC

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 comes next, and this is a game that really runs a lot of its processing on a single thread — both in the integrated benchmark we’re using for testing and actual gameplay. That means that processors that focus on a high core count tend to lose out against CPUs with faster cores, and even the bleeding-edge Core i9 10900K gets a bit CPU bottlenecked at lower resolutions. At 4K though, where we spent the bulk of our analysis time, there’s still a noticeable difference between all of the graphics cards we tested. The RTX 3070 outperforms the 2070 Super by 33 per cent, a smaller margin than we’ve seen previously, while the RTX 2080 Ti holds a seven per cent lead over the new card. The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 owners will see more meaningful improvements, with the RTX 3070 leading the older cards by 109 and 65 per cent, respectively. It’ll be interesting to see if Far Cry 6, currently expected in February 2021, exhibits similar tendencies or incorporates a more modern design.

Mist Survival

As the name implies, Mist Survival tasks you with surviving — right from the beginning, but here your goal is not only to survive, but thrive in a zombie-infested world. You start with nothing, scavenging only what you’ll find around you, and then begin to craft, repair, and and kill your way to a thriving, zombie-apocalypse-surviving base complete with fortified walls and animal traps.

You’ll build a farm, raise livestock for food, and manage NPCs to ensure your survival in a beautiful, apocalypse-torn world, made even more impressive by the fact that just one person made it. In Mist Survival, mist — not to mention cloudy weather and nightfall — is your worst enemy, and it’ll take you some time to keep from dying, but once you do build up your battlements, you’ll thank yourself for the effort.

Available on PC, Android, iOS

Zombi

If you’re in search of a more traditional, even old-school approach to Zombie horror, look no further than Zombi, an intensely atmospheric and clever callback to Ubisoft’s 1986 original and the international title for 1978’s Dawn of the Dead. I would personally recommend playing on the Wii U, as that version makes excellent use of the console’s gamepad to add tension. For example, you need to look down at the second screen to shuffle through your inventory in real-time, which shifts the main screen down as well and leaves any approaching infected out of view until you exit the inventory screen.

But you definitely don’t need to buy a Wii U to enjoy Zombi, as the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions offer the same inventive, resource-driven, and genuinely challenging survival-horror experience, but with a deeper polish. One of my favourite features is the permadeath mechanic, which leaves you controlling a new survivor each time you die, with all of your — sometimes essential — loot on your now zombified corpse for you to track down and take back.

Available on Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, PC

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s benchmark is perhaps the longest in our test suite — not because the scene itself takes a long time to play out, but because you have to go through several tedious loading screens between each run.* Regardless, the ACO results are fascinating, with the RTX 3070 just missing out on that 60fps average with a result of 52fps at 4K and the maximum ‘ultra high’ preset. That’s still enough to outperform the RTX 2080 Ti by around three per cent, the largest advantage we’ve seen for the 3070 at 4K so far and one that’s repeated at 1080p and 1440p to prove it’s far from a one-off result.

Compared to the RTX 2070 Super and 2080, the RTX 3070 achieves a pretty solid improvement at 4K — 36 per cent and 26 per cent, respectively, for cards that cost $30 and $200 more than the RTX 3070’s RRP. The GTX 1070 particularly struggles here too, allowing the RTX 3070 to claim a healthy 123 per cent lead over its grandfather.

*Another potential fly in the ointment are the variable cloud conditions in the benchmark. Annoyingly true to life, the presence of storm clouds can cause performance to drop; likewise we see a good deal of variance in lowest one per cent scores from run to run, especially at low resolutions. Therefore, it’s best to look largely at the averages here, as it’s easy to read too much into the other metrics.

Dead Island

Techland’s first stab at the zombie apocalypse came by way of Dead Island, initially released in 2011. And while its rough edges don’t compare favorably to Dying Light, it has its own distinct charm that’s more than worth experiencing, especially as signs indicate we still might eventually see Dead Island 2.

Based around a similar progression system to Dying Light that initially leaves you desperately fighting for your life with hilariously ineffective weapons, you’ll eventually turn the tables and become a zombie horde’s worst nightmare. Progressing through the engaging main quests and limitless side quests, choosing the weapons and skills to focus on upgrading and scavenging for supplies creates a refreshing freedom in Dead Island, and the lush, tropical setting is as compelling as you’d expect from a Techland game.
