The trailer below premiered on Tuesday during Gamescom Opening Night Live.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human: Bloody Ties Announcement Trailer
“In Bloody Ties, players will embark on a new story adventure, you will reach the epicentre of death, wealth and absolute splendour in a stunning location; The Carnage Hall,” reads the trailer description.
“This old opera building is full of challenges and quests, surprising new weapon types, character interactions, and discoveries to uncover.”
Players who pre-order the DLC will get access to the Aristocrat Pack, which includes an exclusive weapon and outfit.
Today’s reveal follows a Dying Light 2 datamine last month which suggested the title’s first major expansion could be gladiator themed.
Prior to Dying Light 2’s release, Techland said it intended to support the open-world zombie sequel with at least five years of post-launch content.
It later delayed Dying Light 2’s first story DLC from its originally targeted June release date until between September and November.
