Dying Light 2 story-focused DLC Bloody Ties artwork and logo

If you've had your fill of minor events and challenges, you might want to mark November 10th on your calendar as that's when Dying Light 2's very first story-focused DLC Bloody Ties will be launching. The highlight of the expansion is a massive arena where you can fight against hordes of enemies in twisted recreations of classic fables, and if you're itching for something a bit more difficult, even highly mutated monstrosities in special trials.

Along the way you'll get to explore a brand new area, mess around with the new Shield Glove weapon, and as is tradition, obtain all sorts of fancy gear and weapons to spruce up your build. As for the story, much of it is currently shrouded in mystery, but what I can tell you is that you will be helping your new friend Ciro in his quest to avenge his brother's death and discover what sort of dark secrets lie at the heart of the tournament.

What all of this looks like in action, as well as what sort of atmosphere Bloody Ties is going for, that you can get a pretty good idea of through the announcement trailer below. Have a little peek:

The Bloody Ties DLC will set you back 10€ on its own, though you can also get it as a part of the 24€ Deluxe Upgrade or 45€ Ultimate Upgrade that also contain a bunch of cosmetic knickknacks. Personally I don't see the point of paying so much money for cosmetics so I would recommend sticking to the base version, but each to their own.

Once the Bloody Ties expansion goes live I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about it over at the official website. Enjoy!
