Dying Light Reveals Standalone Multiplayer Expansion: Bad Blood

Dying Light Reveals Standalone Multiplayer Expansion: Bad Blood

Techland is creating its own take on the popular battle royale mode with its "Bad Blood" standalone expansion.

Techland stating this news "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", simple as that. Gamers can register for the playtest now on the website.

While Dying Light: Bad Blood is slated to launch sometime in 2018, the developer will be hosting a global playtest before the full launch to gather community feedback. The expansion, subtitled Bad Blood, takes the familiar Dying Light first-person parkour playstyle and incorporates it into competitive matches that "blend PvP and PvE".

All we know about the game thus far is that six players will be dropped in a zombie-infested area and their goal is to scavenge for weapons and harvest blood samples from the infected before night falls (at which point, you'll need to evacuate). Dying Light had co-op multiplayer, and even a Left 4 Dead-inspired mode where players could control powerful zombies in other players' worlds, but the core of battle royale is players killing players. Before you can leave, you need to collect a specific amount of blood samples in order to board the chopper.

Bad Blood is the second stand-alone DLC for Dying Light, with the big focus on PvP. Form dynamic alliances with other players to get tactical against formidable zombie bosses - and then turn on your allies to steal their samples.

Techland is still working on the expansion, but you can join in on the action now as part of the studio's Global Playtest event.

Evacuation The more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked. The final product will be available across "supported platforms" that will be announced at a later date.
