Bloody Ties, the first story-driven DLC for Dying Light 2 Stay Human, is out now for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
In this DLC, priced USD $9.99 (varies by region and platform), players will be able to visit the Carnage Hall, an old opera house turned fighting arena. The encounters will pose a stiff challenge suitable for the most seasoned Pilgrims. However, this DLC is not only about a bloodsport tournament. Underneath the action-packed combat lies a deep narrative about power and revenge.
The dangerous show must go on
Carnage Hall is home to all manner of conflicts. Jump from relatively small brawls straight into Spectacles—the biggest fighting performances imaginable. Clash with the Infected and other contenders while performing various tasks to rile up the crowd and properly tell a mid-fight story. One such story might even take players back to the days of the crisis in Harran, circa the original Dying Light.
Contenders of destruction
On the journey, players will meet a wide cast of characters with interesting personalities and complicated relationships that drive everything around them. Discover the stories of people such as Astrid (Carnage Hall’s showrunner), Ciro (a young, enthusiastic fighter), and Skullface (the arena’s brutal champion).
Flashy weapons and equipment aren’t only a means of survival—they’re also an important symbol of status. Players will need some serious gear to impress the crowd, such as the magnificent Carnage Manica, a special shield capable of withstanding even the heaviest blows.
Face a horde of new enemy types, like the wild Gorilla Demolisher, the dangerous Cataclysm, and the Molotov-throwing Grenadier. All of them, plus the Infected and other fighters, will try to block players on their way to victory.
