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

Share

Techland is still working on the expansion, but you can join in on the action now as part of the studio's Global Playtest event.

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).

Due to numerous requests for a player-vs-player mode in Dying Light, Techland has announced a standalone expansion to the game called Bad Blood. Gamers can register for the playtest now on the website. Making specific mention of the genre in its press release, it promises 'violent and dynamic online matches that blend PvP and PvE styles of gameplay'.

In Bad Blood, you and five other players will occupy an area filled with zombies. 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. They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their feedback will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development. But remember, the clock is ticking. 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. You have to scavenge for weapons while harvesting blood samples from the infected. In a cruel set-up where everyone fights for the survival of the few, betrayal is not a question of "if", but "when". Though seats on the helicopter are unlocked based on the cumulative total of samples collected, seats can only be purchased individually.
