It used to be mad love for Techland.
Dying Light’s battle royale standalone failed to impress during its debut week on Steam.
Techland’s attempt at hopping on the battle royale bandwagon hasn’t panned out very well so far, with Bad Blood peaking at 455 concurrent players during its first week on Steam, according to GitHyp.
The figure has continued to fall since then, with the concurrent player count falling to below 100 this week.
Dying Light: Bad Blood launched as a $20/ £16 standalone on September 13, and has mixed reviews on Steam, compared to Dying Light’s very positive reviews, and while it’s still in Early Access, it doesn’t seem to have generated much interest in the community, judging by the player count.
Last week saw patch 0.2.1 roll out that balanced weapons, and added airdrop landing locations, amongst other things.
In the first community update, posted this week, Techland revealed that it’s working on support for new languages, new Steam Card designs, a new character model with new outfits, and “balance and connectivity tweaks”.
