Eye Tracking now available in Dying Light
When you are out running or outgunning the undead horde, you will never want to miss a quick shot..
..or that fateful ledge that makes or breaks your survival during a viral breakout.
As of today, Eye Tracking will be coming to the city of Harran. Developer Techland’s Dying Light is a first-person zombie apocalypse game set in the open world of Harran City, a place where free running, crafting, and survival all play a vital part of the story.
With an Eye Tracker from Tobii, your computer will always know where your gaze goes, following and complementing the play style you enjoy most. Mouse and keyboard, or gamepad of your choice, your eyes are the defining factor for interaction with the world you are in — just like in real life.
The Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, our latest eye tracker, now has full support for one of our favorite games — Dying Light.
We have something for casuals and purists alike, featuring an extended field of vision and multiple interactions that occur, simply with the power of your eyes.
All features are fully customizable in the menu. Below you will find a list of features that the Eye Tracker bring to Dying Light’s beautiful and horrifying world.
Extended View and Clean UI
When immersed within a game, we want to interact to our fullest, but sometimes the UI can get in the way of that. Using the Tobii Eye Tracker, you can push past the confines of your screen, without diverting too much attention from your aim or task at hand.
The Clean UI feature only requires you to look in any of the four corners to bring up the information you need, leaving you with a smoother experience overall.
Whether it’s rummaging through boxes or sparking up a conversation with your favorite quest giver, looting and questing is a big part of any survival game — and Dying Light is no different.
All those precious possessions needed to craft that sweet new zombie-whacker 2000 will be faster and easier to scoop up into your inventory with the Eye Tracker. The magic, however, does not stop there. Missions and rewards, as well as conversations, will flow smoother as you take in the sights.
When you find yourself in the dark and you hear the dead all around you, a flashlight will seem like a good idea.
Following your eyes, the flashlight will move your cursor to highlight anything you spy in the peripheral. When night comes and you need to stun the zombies that stalk you like prey, this will undoubtedly come in handy.
Just make sure your batteries are charged.
Aim at Gaze and Multi-throw
You spend time in Dying Light gathering resources and scrounging for supplies, and nothing feels worse than wasting those hard earned materials on a missed Molotov.
The Aim at Gaze feature allows you to never miss what you can see with your own eyes, be it with a grenade, shuriken, or even that precious pistol you bought. With the Multi-Throw Function, you will be able to tag zombies in succession before throwing out a handful tomahawks. Zombies beware…
When you look at the shambling horrors in Dying Light, you alert them to your presence. The Eye Tracker will always follow your gaze, so be careful not to linger too long on the walking dead. They will know you are looking, and they will come for you. Players beware…
Auto-climb when sprinting
That ledge you wanted to hit properly for the next climb, or that outcropping of rocks you really needed to get to? They will not be a problem anymore.
Even for the best of climbers and free runners, you will find that the Eye Trackers Auto-Climb feature while Sprinting will make the interaction that much faster, and impossibly precise. Getting from A to B has never been this fluid.
