Fans of zombie video games will want to put Jan. 27 down on your calendars. It’s the release date of this terrifying game Dying Light.

An “action survival game presented in first-person perspective,” it is probably the most realistic take we’ve seen on being chased by zombies yet.

The game is set in a vast and dangerous open world,” reads the game description. “During the day, you roam an urban environment devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help you defeat the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created.
