Dying Light to get battle royale-inspired expansion next year

Dying Light to get battle royale-inspired expansion next year

Techland announced today a brand-new standalone multiplayer expansion for Dying Light.

Dying Light: Bad Blood will release in 2018. "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 worldwide success".

In a press release, the developer said that the expansion is being developed in "response to numerous fan requests for a Player-vs-Player approach" for the game, and also due to the "recent popularity of the battle royale genre among the survival horror fans". Each player has to evacuate before the night falls. Sign up now to participate in the free Global Playtest on Steam. It was not revealed if this expansion would make its way to consoles.

However, to actually get on these empty seats players have to pay a toll of a certain number of these samples, which can lead to alliances being broken and betrayed as players might need to kill who they've been working with to steal enough samples from them to ensure their own survival. Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development.

This gameplay element results in a "cruel set-up" betrayal, because the more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked. But everyone pays for their seat individually, which means the alliances are short-lived and can easily end with a stab in the back.

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

However, Bad Blood seeks to set itself apart from both Be The Zombie and other Battle Royale-style games by reducing the amount of players to six and have them all be humans.
