In the grim darkness of the near future, there is only Battle Royale. And things vaguely similar to Battle Royale.

Dying Light is the latest game to announce news of such a mode. This one will be arriving in the form of a standalone expansion called Bad Blood and it actually sounds far more suited to the game than I initially suspected. That’s mostly because it doesn’t sound like it has that much in common with the battle royale sub-genre, whatever this here press release might say.

Dying Light

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 six 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: Bad Blood is a new standalone multiplayer expansion for Dying Light, coming next year.

In a city infested by zombies, you and five others wake up with no memory of how you got there. Your only means of escape is to appease your kidnappers by harvesting blood samples from the infected.

Will you ally with the other survivors or prey on them to secure your own safety? Anything goes as long as it gets you out of the zone.

Form dynamic alliances with other players to take on formidable zombie bosses - and then you turn on your allies to steal their blood samples. In a cruel set-up where everyone fights for the survival of the few, betrayal is not a question of “if”, but “when”.

Register now for a chance to take part in a playtest on Steam.

Dying Light’s Content Drop #1 brings three brand-new weapons alongside three special bounties needed to unlock these lethal inventions.

New Axe – Fenris

Bounty: Bloodlust


Fenris gains bonus damage for the next swing whenever it cuts off an opponent’s limb, which makes it perfect for fighting a stronger enemy accompanied by a group of weaker ones. Just cut off a weaker enemy’s leg and gain additional power to attack the tough guy.

New Knife – Kuai Dagger

Bounty: Rise of the Phoenix


A very light knife made of jade. It fits the hand so well and weights so little that it allows the runner to reach their maximum speed. Simply string parkour moves together to get an incremental speed boost.

New Revolver – Last Wish

Bounty: Ace in the Hole


What makes the Last Wish special is her final shot mechanic. Land consecutive headshots to increase the firepower of your bullets. Score five headshots in a row for a massive 6th shot.
