In response to "numerous fan requests", Techland has announced Bad Blood-a battle royale-inspired PvP mode that's due next year.

While Dying Light: Bad Blood is slated to launch sometime in 2018, the developer will be hosting a global playtest before the full launch to gather community feedback.

Dying Light Bad Blood will have a global playtest on PC, which will be absolutely free but with limited places, and Techland is inviting interested parties to sign up now via its website. "They can play the expansion early and share their thoughts, knowing their opinion will have a major influence on Bad Blood's development".

Bad Blood will offer "violent and dynamic" online matches, and wants PC players to help test the expansion out online.

Entitled Bad Blood, the expansion looks to be the latest to get on board the battle royale train.

According to the developer, Dying Light: Bad Blood is a "multiplayer expansion set in the Dying Light universe which offers intense and dynamically changing online matches that creatively blend the distinction between PvP and PvE style of gameplay, while retaining the core of what made Dying Light and worldwide success" which came about "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".

"You and five other players are dropped into a hostile, zombie-infested area". Each of you has the same goal: to evacuate before the night falls. However, to secure a seat on it, players will be required to harvest blood samples from zombies, and teaming up with other players to do so will make the task much easier. In a cruel set-up where everyone fights for the survival of the few, betrayal is not a question of "if", but "when".

The more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked.
