Today, Techland announced Dying Light: Bad Blood, a new player vs. player (PvP) expansion which features more action than ever before. 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.
According to the developer, Bad Blood retains the core of what made people fall in love with Dying Light in the first place. However, it offers violent and dynamic online matches that blend various gameplay styles. While Bad Blood isn't the sequel gamers have been asking for, it still seems like intriguing content which will keep players coming back for more.
The Dying Light: Bad Blood Global Playtest is a closed online event that allows selected players to try out the expansion before its release. Gamers can register for the playtest now on the website. In a statement issued to the press, Tymon Smektala, a producer at Techland, said the following.
Our aim is both to satisfy players' demands for competitive PvP gameplay and to explore new directions for Dying Light's multiplayer experience. Since Bad Blood was inspired by fan requests, we want player feedback to be an integral part of our development. That's why we're inviting Dying Light fans to take part in our Global Playtest. They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their feedback will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development.
Dying Light: Bad Blood will launch as a standalone expansion in 2018. All supported platforms for the full release will be announced at a later date. If you haven't played the base game, you can pick it up at retailers now.
