Watch: Parkour Creator David Belle Working on Zombie Game Dying Light

Dying Light is a game that mixes the melee-based zombie-killing of Dead Island with the downright cool stuff that makes up Parkour. So it makes sense that they got David Belle involved.

You may recognise Belle from his movie roles, perhaps most famously the opening fight/chase with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. He's also appeared in District 13 (which is awesome by the way) and has worked on stunts in Prince of Persia, Transporter 2 and Colombiana.

Parkour has also had a massive effect on the world of gaming, defining the movement used in the Assassin's Creed series and helping to create titles like Mirror's Edge and many more. So it's only fitting that he's finally getting involved in his first game, Techland's Dying Light.

Belle was not only the stunt cordinator on the game but he also helped to get across the entire concept of parkour as it would work from a first person perspective and did motion capture duties on the main player character. Who also looks a lot like him! Here's some behind the scenes from development.

Which is all very cool in my opinion.

Dying Light is out on PS4, Xbox One and PC for digital download worldwide on the 27th of January 2015.
