Dying Light: Bad Blood Shoots into Early Access Next Month
Techland confirms that Dying Light: Bad Blood will come to Steam Early Access in September with a Founder’s Pack available during this time
Techland announced this morning that Dying Light: Bad Blood, the standalone battle royale, will be making an appearance on Steam Early Access this September.
The multiplayer title infuses elements like that of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, H1Z1, and Fortnite. Up to 12 players scavenge for weapons, parkour across rooftops, and fight to survive in a city crawling with the undead.
During the early access span, Dying Light: Bad Blood will be priced at $19.99 and a Founder’s Pack will be available, which includes the game, plus exclusive in-game content, currency, and three Legendary skins throughout the three months following the Early Access launch.
Maciej Łączny, the executive producer at Techland, said in a press statement:
“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.”
Unfortunately, the Early Access release will only be for PC gamers, but Bad Blood will join the rest of the group, PS4 and Xbox One, when it comes out in full release.
Two global playtests are anticipated to run between August 25 and 26, and September 1 and 2. Registration is open from now through August 22 at 1 pm PST / 9 pm BST. For more information, you can hop over to Dying Light official site.
Although Dying Light 2 hasn’t got a release date just yet, you can pre-order the game on Amazon or, if you still haven’t gotten around to playing Dying light: The Following – Enhanced Edition, you can purchase a copy for PC, PS4 and Xbox One via Amazon
