Pax West 2018: Dying Light: Bad Blood – “Brutal Royal” Game Mode

  Given the successes of battle royal game mechanics as of late, it makes perfect sense for Techland to leap into the ring with its very own multiplayer mode of the same type. Similar to the flavor of gameplay that made PUBG and Fortnite as popular as they have been, Dying Light: Bad Blood is an everyman-for themselves battle set in the game’s zombie apocalypse universe. Players can opt to battle zombies, other players, or...
