Dying Light the video game is set taking place in Harran, Turkey. Although ancient Harran is a real place in Turkey, this is not the exact same.
The landscape is harsh with unfinished skyscrapers, emptied buildings, decaying and impoverished homes and busted forgotten cars.
The fallout of this sprawling metropolis is filled with post apocalyptic zombie madness. Hence the immediate and intensely empty, desolate and forlorn landscape. Day time lasts a full 64 minutes and the night at a whopping 7 minutes.
You are sent into the game as an undercover operative and you get to used the vast abandoned old town / slums as your own zombie filled playground.
With the up-coming release of Dying Light 2, we are ready for more decay, emptied and abandoned landscapes.
