Techland Introduces Dying Light: Bad Blood, A Competitive Survival Expansion

And we're assuming that the PvP expansion will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 too, since every other bit of DLC and additional content released for Dying Light to date has also surfaced on console.

The game has been built with Chrome Engine 6, which is a proprietary 3D game engine developed by Techland that was first used over 10 years ago in Speedway Grand Prix and Chrome (a science fiction first person shooter).

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. "Enjoy violent and dynamically changing online matches that blend PvP and PvE styles of gameplay, while retaining the core of Dying Light's unique experience". They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their feedback will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development. The playtest will only be available for PC users on Steam.

Interested parties can sign up for a Techland Account and register for the closed, online Global Playtest for Dying Light: Bad Blood through the official website by clicking the link.

Players must evacuate the area before night comes, when the zombies are at their absolute worst. Here's how it works: you and five other players are dropped into a hostile, zombie-infested area. You have to scavenge for weapons while harvesting blood samples from the infected.

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.
