Dying Light: Bad Blood PvP-focused expansion announced for 2018

Adjust Comment Print

Next year Dying Light will receive a new expansion, Bad Blood, which is going to be a battle royale mode.

Developer Techland said Bad Blood comes "as a response to numerous fan requests for a PvP approach to Dying Light, and the recent popularity of the Battle Royale genre among the survival horror fans", which presumably is a nod to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. It remains to be seen whether the game's style suits this kind of play, but Dying Light's movement in particular is well realised, so this could turn out surprisingly well. Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development. Each of you has the same goal: to evacuate before the night falls.

Global Playtest is a closed online event that allows selected players to try out Dying Light: Bad Blood before its release.

Allies & traitors To pay for a seat on the extraction chopper, you need to harvest blood samples from the infected. Six players must harvest blood from the zombies riddling their area of play and they must do so quickly and efficiently.

One weird twist is the more infection samples collected in total, the more seats on the extraction chopper are opened up, though players still have to pay for their seat individually. Furthermore, as the description entails, there will be a mix of both PvE and PvP in the mode, as players still have to worry about fighting off zombies in the area. There's no specific release date for the expansion outside of a "2018" date, but expect more info in the oncoming months.
