Dying Light Gets PUBG-Inspired Expansion Called Bad Blood In 2018 News Techland Steam Dying Light

Dying Light, Techland's zombie-filled, parkour-infused and motion sickness-inducing survival-horror game, is getting a Battle Royale-inspired standalone PvP expansion called Bad Blood in 2018. "Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development". Thanks to its proprietary game engine technology, Techland develops top-tier entertainment content for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Linux, Mac OS X, Android, and iOS.

More specifically, six players will be dropped into a zombie infested city, and tasked with scavenging their own supplies and weapons and collecting blood samples from the undead.

The global playtest for Bad Blood will begin in the "first half of December", which we're obviously already well into.

Bad Blood is the second stand-alone DLC for Dying Light, with the big focus on PvP. The playtest will only be available for PC users on Steam. "They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their feedback will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development". This will be a standalone multiplayer expansion featuring a blend of PvP and PvE gameplay, and a free global playtest is set to begin soon.

Players must evacuate the area before night comes, when the zombies are at their absolute worst. But remember, the clock is ticking. In order to pay for the escape, players will need to harvest blood samples from the infected. Make sure you have enough evacuation points once the chopper arrives, and don't get killed as you race to the extraction zone.

This gameplay element results in a "cruel set-up" betrayal, because the more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked.
