Dying Light is Getting a New Standalone Expansion Next Year

In a surprising bit of news today, the open world survival horror game Dying Light is getting it own standalone expansion in 2018, and it seems to be centered all around PvP multiplayer. The mode, called Bad Blood, was brought about by player demand and due to “the recent popularity of the battle royale genre” amongst fans.

When it comes to the game mode, Bad Blood aims to merge PvE elements into the gameplay, and the rules of the mode reveal why: you and five other players are dropped into a zombie-infested map. 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.

Players must scavenge for weapons and can also form on-the-fly alliances with other players to try and take down stronger zombies. However, as is the case with most PvP games, alliances can be short lived, as players must pay for their seats on the evacuation chopper separately. 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.
