This new trailer for Techland's Dying Light showcases what it's like to play as the Night Hunter zombie, which is the apex predator of George Romero's world.

Dying Light's "Be the Zombie" game mode has you playing as a super walker who pretty much has Spider-Man-esque powers. It's nice to see the other player-controlled characters panicking as they're stalked from the shadows by the Night Hunter, which is a great change from movie zombie games.

Running around rooftops and scaling walls like a Xenomorph sets this zombie apart from all the rest. We're a little bit unsold on the swinging mechanics, which amounts to a tentacle-like appendage pulling your character to a landing spot while you're high up in the air. Nevertheless, it's going to be fun to pull crazy ambushes on unsuspecting slayers.

Dying Light will launch on Jan. 27, 2015 for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Things are going to get gruesome once Dying Light launches this January.
