12-player PvPvE version of Dying Light just dropped into Steam Early Access:

Final Gameplay Trailer (2018): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rhyZgz19Ys

Fusing Insomnia's 2015 GOTY, Dying Light, and icy's current 10-player PvPvE favorite, Hunt: Showdown, Bad Blood will probably rock.

It costs $20 right now, but will be F2P in a few months when it gets out of EA.

Fanatical has it on sale for a week at 20% off: https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/dying-light-bad-blood

1) You fade in from black, landing on a portion of the map. I assume the game spreads you out fairly evenly, or randomly, can't tell.

2) Start running to collect weapons, items and equipment.

3) There are not zombies everywhere. They are located in marked spots on the map, guarding "nests" which you need to get to and extract samples from to upgrade your health and stamina.

4) All the while you are looking out for other players who can make easy sneak attacks on your position (always be looking around and moving).

5) Eventually, when a few players are left, a helicopter icon will signal somewhere on the map and you will have to try to run to it.

6) Only one player can leave on the helo, and in my one hour of playtime I've reached the helo only once, to be killed by a player who was three levels higher than me. Frustrating.

7) There are no moments of boredom in this BR rendition. You are constantly parkouring around the map, looking out for enemies and new zombie nests to harvest for level-ups.

8) Although it's in Early Access, there is a shop where you can buy new clothes for your avatar and customized weapon paint-schemes. I don't see anything P2W here.

9) Again, it might be an Early Access title but on my Acer Predator Helios 300 (2018 model) with an i7-8700H and a GTX 1060, I'm hitting about 120-144 FPS. The game runs like a dream.

10) If you are at all interested in revisiting this world I'd say pick it up!
