What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Bad Blood is a unique spin on the last man standing gameplay and the first competitive multiplayer title in the Dying Light franchise - as such it will greatly benefit from a strong and focused community, whose feedback and suggestions will help us create the definitive brutal royale experience. We had a great two-way communication with our fans of the original Dying Light, and with Bad Blood we’d like to include the community in the development process as soon as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the game early 2019. However, we first want to make sure our Founders are happy with the experience they got, so we’ll always give priority to the game’s quality over strictly sticking to this timeline. This means slight changes to the final release date are possible.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“"The full version of Bad Blood will feature new mechanics, features, and a wealth of additional content. These things will be added gradually throughout the whole Early Access phase.

The planned features include:

- Additional maps
- New game modes, including the Duo Mode
- Ranked matchmaking and leaderboards
- Additional language versions
- Regular in-game events
- Redesigned HUD
- Advanced metagame
- New customisation items

On top of that, the game will be further supported with new content updates and balances fixes before and after its launch. The game will also switch to a free-to-play model."”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Dying Light: Bad Blood is gradually expanded throughout the Early Access phase. This means new mechanics, features, and content are constantly added to the game, including additional language versions, a new custom map, and the Duo mode. Our reasoning is we want to gather as much feedback as possible and shape the game together with our community, so we won’t be holding content back until the full release if we can improve it in collaboration with our Founders.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“You can join the Early Access phase through the Founder’s Pack. On top of an instant access to the game, you also get exclusive in-game items that will never ever be available in any other way, as well as 1000 Blood bucks you can use in the game to customise your character however you want. Once Bad Blood leaves the Early Access and switches to the free-to-play model, the Founder’s Pack will no longer be available.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will actively monitor the comments, discussions, and suggestions on all official channels: Steam Community, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube as well as at The very point of going Early Access with Bad Blood is to engage our Founder in the development process, so we’ll do everything we can to encourage feedback and make it easy for players to express their thoughts.”

December 6

New in-game event and patch 0.2.9 are here

KATANA VS. BASEBALL BAT in-game event & more

The razor-sharp katana, and the unsophisticated but reliable baseball bat - two iconic weapons that no self-respecting zombie apocalypse could do without. But which is better? Take the matters in your own hands and see for yourself in the newest Bad Blood event.

Event ends 12/09 00:00 UTC.

These are the rules:
  • Katanas and baseball bats are super easy to find
  • Baseball bats are much stronger, and easily send zombies and bandits flying
  • Katanas are stronger too, cutting through flesh as if it were butter. They can even one-hit kill bigger zombies

Patch 0.2.9 notes:

How the game plays better:
  • You can switch between the FPP and TPP view in the spectator mode
  • We removed the parry icon
  • We made balance tweaks to the Virals: they’re now a bit less aggressive and have a slower reaction time
How it works better:
  • We took care of an exploit that allowed for faster attacks with two-handed weapons by switching to the bow
  • We made further optimizations to the network code, which should improve the experience especially for players with slower broadband speeds
  • Missing audio was added

How we squashed the bugs
  • We eliminated a rare issue when a player would fall under the map if hit by an arrow
  • We fixed situations when the evac counter didn’t run properly

Get more rewards with Stash Craze Event and see patch 0.2.8 notes

STASH CRAZE - new in-game event + more bugfixing

Ready, set, go - it’s event time in Bad Blood! Until Nov 27th, you have the chance to win loot stashes, including Legendary ones. Let’s review the rules:
  • Extract the hives as you play the game. For each easy hive you will get 1 token, 3 tokens for extracting a normal hive, and 5 tokens for a hard one.

  • Collect tokens daily to unlock rewards. You can collect up to 40 tokens a day. The token counter is reset every day at 23:59 UTC.

  • Each day of the event, you can get the following rewards: one Normal Stash for reaching 5 tokens, one Rare Stash for 20 tokens, and one Legendary Stash for 40 tokens.

  • Notice that you don’t have to spend the tokens to buy anything - the rewards are simply unlocked once you reach each of the daily thresholds.

  • You can check your current number of tokens in the upper right corner of the main menu screen.
On top of the event, we also squashed a few more bugs:
  • Sometimes when you were about to pick up a modded weapon, the weapon comparison incorrectly showed that the new weapon was no stronger than the unmodded one. It’s no longer the case.

  • We fixed a rare case when two connected players were put in different modes (private and normal).

  • Killing Spitters and Virals messed with the Hives killed counter. It’s fixed now.

  • When using a PS4 gamepad, the menus now show correct shoulder button icons.

About This Game


Get competitive and get the blood on your hands in the all-new brutal royale experience.

Enter a zombie-infested area and compete as one of 12 players to become the only survivor. Scavenge for weapons, destroy zombie hives to level up, and combine your advanced parkour mobility with brutal combat skills to outrun, outsmart, and outplay your opponents.

It’s all in, one out in Dying Light: Bad Blood - a fast-paced and gory online game that creatively blends PvP and PvE combat while retaining the core of Dying Light’s iconic gameplay.

Kill the zombies and destroy their hives to collect blood samples and level up your character. Prey on other players, steal their loot, and become the only one to leave the zone alive.

Whether you run for your life, chase another player or race to the evac chopper, it’s your parkour skills that give you an edge over the enemies

Immerse yourself in the blood-soaked FPP combat known from the highly-acclaimed Dying Light, now with greater tactical depth, new moves, and tons of vicious weapons.
