Dying Light is getting a 'battle royale' multiplayer expansion called Bad Blood

Today, Techland announced Dying Light: Bad Blood, a new player vs. player (PvP) expansion which features more action than ever before. It's called Bad Blood and will be undergoing a global playtest in the near future.

Tymon Smektala, producer at Techland, says, "Our aim is both to satisfy player's demands for competitive PvP gameplay and to explore new directions for Dying Light's multiplayer experience". Independent of the developer's ongoing free DLC drive, Bad Blood is a standalone expansion. This expansion is the result of the numerous fan requests for a Player-vs-Player approach to Dying Light, as well as the recent popularity of the battle royale genre.

The global playtest for Bad Blood will begin in the "first half of December", which we're obviously already well into. 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. 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. In order to escape from the horrors of Bad Blood players will need to buy their way onto to an evacuation helicopter at the end of a round using collected samples. But remember, the clock is ticking. Be careful though, those same allies might turn on you to get more blood samples of their own, ensuring they have a way out.
