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

Fans have been requesting a PvP mode and given the popularity of Fortnite and PUBG you can't blame Techland for jumping on the bandwagon.

Dying Light: Bad Blood will be launched as a standalone PvP expansion in 2018! Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development. 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. Each are tasked with evacuating the area before nightfall, and like the core Dying Light game, players will be scavenging for weapons as they parkour their way through the city. The goal of the game is to evacuate before night falls, but in order to get a seat on the extraction chopper, players must harvest blood from the zombies.

The Techland-developed open-world zombie-infested action title, Dying Light, has seen continuous updates since its release back in 2015. But if someone does not have enough blood samples to pay for their seat, they can also steal samples from other players, which is where the PvP part of the expansion comes in.

It's called Bad Blood and will be undergoing a global playtest in the near future. In a cruel set-up where everyone fights for the survival of the few, betrayal is not a question of "if", but "when".

Dying Light Bad Blood will have a global playtest on PC, which will be absolutely free but with limited places, and Techland is inviting interested parties to sign up now via its website. The more samples the players harvest collectively, the more evacuation seats on the chopper are unlocked, but everyone pays for their seat individually.
