In a surprising bit of news today, the open world survival horror game Dying Light is getting it own standalone expansion in 2018, and it seems to be centered all around PvP multiplayer. This expansion is the result of the numerous fan requests for a Player-vs-Player approach to Dying Light, as well as the recent popularity of the battle royale genre. Players can sign up to be one of the beta testers on the PC by signing in with their Techland account on the Dying Light site.

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. Alliances in "Bad Blood" are temporary, so be wary of the people you play with, even if they decide to help you.

Six players will be dropped into a zombie-infested area with the goal of evacuating on an extraction helicopter before the sun goes down. That's why we're inviting Dying Light fans to take part in our Global Playtest.

Higher Ground Set To Be Worst Hit By Snow
Donegal is set for a cold snap with wintry showers, snow and freezing temperatures which will continue into next week. The Road Safety Authority has cautioned motorists to expect the unexpected with high winds and icy conditions.

Allies & traitors To pay for a seat on the extraction chopper, you need to harvest blood samples from the infected. Furthermore, as the description entails, there will be a mix of both PvE and PvP in the mode, as players still have to worry about fighting off zombies in the area. And this is where things get messy: though players will often have to team up to defeat bosses, they can just as easily turn on each other to steal their samples and prevent them from evacuating once the chopper arrives.

This gameplay element results in a "cruel set-up" betrayal, because the more samples the players harvest collectively, the more seats are unlocked. The final product will be available across "supported platforms" that will be announced at a later date.
