Techland has announced that Dying Light: Bad Blood will be available on PC via Steam Early Access from September.
The game will be free-to-play once it officially launches on PC and consoles, but will be priced at $19.99 during early access. Players who purchase the Founder’s Pack will get immediate access to the game, three legendary weapons skins, a legendary mask, 1000 Blood Bucks, and the Founder’s Pass. The Founder’s Pass grants access to three exclusive legendary skins spread out across three months after the game officially launches.
“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,” executive producer Maciej Łączny said.
“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.”
During early access, the developer plans to release free content updates that include new maps, modes, and in-game items.
Dying Light: Bad Blood is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and throws 12 players into an arena where only one can leave.
