Techland have announced that the online battle royale game, Dying Light: Bad Blood will arrive via Early Access next month.
Techland are bringing the game early for gamers so that it can be improved constantly based on the player’s feedback. Maciej Łączny, Executive Producer stated:
We’ve always been keen to add more PvP multiplayer to Dying Light. We’ve read all of the messages from players on social media and forums, and multiplayer has been a hot topic. We’ve also seen how players have embraced Be the Zombie and that inspired us to expand on multiplayer. But we want to do it in the Dying Light way, where this world swarming with infected is just as much a threat as the other players. This is how Dying Light: Bad Blood came to life, a game based on these key principles: the freedom and fast pace of parkour movement, the constant threat of the Infected, and the creative brutality of melee combat. Combined they offer an all-new brutal royale experience. Now we encourage the community to help us fine-tune the game before its release.
Players can get access by purchasing the Founder’s Pack. This gives players in-game currency and exclusive items, including the Founder’s Pass that will deliver 3 Legendary skins throughout the 3 months following the Early Access launch. The early access period will also come with new updates. These will include new maps, modes and in-game items as frequent Drops, which fans of the original Dying Light will be familiar with.
Once it is fully released, it will be free-to-play and will also be on consoles as well as PC. Be sure to let us know if you will be getting involved in Early Access next month via the comment section below.
