Dying Light: Bad Blood official multiplayer screenshot

During the initial Battle Royale craze, Dying Light developers decided to give the new genre a try by creating a parkour-heavy, PvP spin-off game. Unfortunately, while Dying Light's movement mechanics were awesome and the concept itself pretty solid, Dying Light: Bad Blood released as a paid Early Access game. As you might imagine, this meant that Bad Blood never got the player population it needed to sustain further development, and soon enough it was simply abandoned.

However, there is a small ray of sunshine in this rather sad story. Techland has recently decided to offer a free copy of Bad Blood to all owners of Dying Light, and because of this little promotion, Bad Blood's population has increased enough to ensure that you can actually find a full server to play on! It's still unlikely development on Bad Blood will continue, but at least for the time being you can give it a proper try and see just what could've been.

So if you're curious, all you have to do is head on over to the Dying Light website and log in with your Steam, PS4 or Microsoft account. Regardless of which version of Dying Light you own, you'll receive a Steam key for Bad Blood after a couple of minutes.

To learn more about Bad Blood, as well as give it a try once you've redeemed yourself a copy, you should head on over to Steam. Have fun, and I'll leave you with one of the original trailers:
