Zombie kill 'em up Dying Light gets a Battle Royale-inspired standalone PvP expansion called Bad Blood next year. Developer Techland said Bad Blood comes "as a response to numerous fan requests for a PvP approach to Dying Light, and the recent popularity of the Battle Royale genre among the survival horror fans", which presumably is a nod to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. The big difference between the likes of PUBG and Bad Blood, however, is Bad Blood is only for five players, and it blends PvP with PvE. Here's how it works: you and five other players are dropped into a hostile, zombie-infested area. Each player has to evacuate before the night falls. You have to scavenge for weapons while harvesting blood samples from the infected.
Dying Light was a fantasic game – demonstrating that if given the right budget, Techland could turn its ideas for Dead Island into something genuinely worth playing. Since its release, Techland has continued to support the game with content, including a weel-received expansion, called The Following.
Now the game is set to receive a standalone multiplayer expansion that blends together PvE and PvP elements. It’s called Bad Blood, and you can sign up to participate in the global test.
