    Dying Light gets a Battle Royale-inspired expansion called Bad Blood in 2018

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-blood-in-2018

    Zombie kill 'em up Dying Light gets a Battle Royale-inspired standalone PvP expansion called Bad Blood next year.

    1
    Techland has yet to release any assets for Bad Blood, so here's a picture of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood instead.
    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 five 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.

    There's word of dynamic alliances with other players to get tactical against zombie bosses, but you can then turn on your allies to steal their samples. The more samples the players harvest collectively, the more evacuation seats on the chopper are unlocked, but everyone pays for their seat individually.

    That's all we've got for now. Dying Light: Bad Blood is due out in 2018.
    Not going to lie that sounds kinda fun. I am really impressed how much support they have been giving the game since its release.

    You should read the post and not just the title. It isn't a battle royale clone its inspired by it.

    I think they shouldn't call it a battle royale expansion since it seems quite different
    Also it makes them look like they're trying to copy all those other games,while in truth,they appear to give it quite a different,and potentially interesting,spin

    Battle Royal... the new plague genre, everyone and their mothers must have their own version of it, sort of like MOBAs.

    well the post says that's exactly what's it going to be lmao

    but ok you be that guy i guess.

    but yeah i will agree with the statement that it doesn't really have to be called a battle royale, since it's not really it, but then they do want to cash out on the crowd that is into that sort of thing and let's not kid ourselves - the br hype is still very strong

    the division did exactly the same thing, yet nobody talked about it because they haven't called it a "battle royale expack". techland did their research.

    If you read the post you would see it is. They do go into detail about it.

    Its not even a long post.

    Jesus its like people can only read the title and barely can read that. It says "Battle Royal Inspired" not Battle Royal Clone.

    Because all those games are "battle royal inspired" and final product is always same shit. Hell, they use that term for a very obvious reason (aka riding hype train).

    Clearly you didn't read it since...

    1) Its only 5 people not 100.
    2) It has PVE elements in it.

    But like I said feel free to look ignorant, By ur logic COD is a battle royal game as well.

    Yeah, we will see when it comes out. So far it looks like they try (and are a bit too late) to monetize on hype, while being diffrent enough to fit betwen fortnite and pubg. And 5vs100 doesnt matter when all other people want is to blow your head with sniper riffle.

    Nice. It's good to hear that the game is still being given love and attention. I'll have to check in on it again someday.

    I love Dying Light but I really don't like the whole PvP bullshit they're pushing on this game. What's next Dyling Light MLG tournaments?

    Would much rather have a new story expansion.

    If it's free then maybe they're hoping it will breath new life into the community again and/or sell more copies of the game as right now there's only 2,693 people playing.

    It's going to need some type of worthwhile anti cheat so people don't simply use a trainer to get weapons/ammo.
