Techland announced today a brand-new standalone multiplayer expansion for Dying Light. Techland developed the expansion as a response to numerous fan requests for a competitive approach to Dying Light, and the recent popularity of the battle royale genre among survival horror fans.
Dying Light took the gaming community by storm and has since then garnered somewhat of a cult following. Players can sign up to be one of the beta testers on the PC by signing in with their Techland account on the Dying Light site. Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development. They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their feedback will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development. "Bad Blood offers intense and dynamically changing online matches that creatively blend the distinction between PvP and PvE style of gameplay, while retaining the core of what made Dying Light and global success".
"You and five other players are dropped into a hostile, zombie-infested area". As such, the developer has introduced this, all the while keeping the core of Dying Light's gameplay experience, blending PvE and PvP.
It's called Bad Blood and will be undergoing a global playtest in the near future. Space is limited on the evac-chopper though, with players having to collect blood samples to buy seats for a way out. Not only will players have to fight against each other but also A.I controlled zombies and in some instances powerful boss monsters that could turn the tide of battle.
This gameplay element results in a "cruel set-up" betrayal, because the more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked. Make sure you have enough evacuation points once the chopper arrives, and don't get killed as you race to the extraction zone. There's no specific release date for the expansion outside of a "2018" date, but expect more info in the oncoming months.
