Techland reveals Dying Light: Bad Blood PvP expansion

Techland Announces Dying Light: Bad Blood, PvP Expansion Due in 2018

In a surprise reveal today, Techland has announced its intention to bring a new standalone multiplayer PVP expansion set in the world of its 2015 open world zombie game Dying Light. This is just the latest game to follow the battle royale craze after PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' enormous success and Fortnite's own battle royale mode.

Be the first to play Dying Light: Bad Blood - the new standalone multiplayer expansion. 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. PC players can register for the playtest now.

Bad Blood is the second stand-alone DLC for Dying Light, with the big focus on PvP. That's why we're inviting Dying Light fans to take part in our Global Playtest. The mode itself was a mix of Evolve and Dark Souls, as it had players team up to defeat a powerful enemy whose goal was to destroy the Night Hunter's nest before they themselves were killed, but it was only available for those actually willing to let themselves be invaded. But remember, the clock is ticking. Use your parkour skills to swiftly traverse the city, scavenging for weapons that will give you an edge over your opponents.

There's word of dynamic alliances with other players to get tactical against zombie bosses, but you can then turn on your allies to steal their samples.

This gameplay element results in a "cruel set-up" betrayal, because the more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked. The page states that a Techland account is required to participate, and we assume that you'll also need a copy of Dying Light in order to get in on the action.
