    Bloody Ties is a new expansion wasting some potential by being released without the proper foundations and context. It ends up being part of a forgettable story which leaves rewards that, quite regularly, will demand for proactivity or an outright new game save.

    Bloody Ties is a safe, short expansion that gives dedicated Dying Light fans some new stuff to mess around with, but there's not much to entice other people to dive back in.

    There’s nothing in the Bloody Ties expansion that warrants returning to the game, especially if you’ve been playing it since release. Its story is rather boring, and its new combat encounters are dull.

    Bloody Ties isn’t likely to wow you in any way. As DLC goes, it’s very much inessential. But for just £7.99/$9.99, those wanting an excuse to return to Dying Light 2 might at least find it entertaining. The challenges will test your skills, while the cosmetics will allow you to further make Aiden your own. It’s just a shame that it very much feels like an extended side-quest, and that your hard-earned equipment is mostly rendered useless.

    Fortunately, Bloody Ties is more than just a series of arena fights, as it also offers other types of quests and a pretty extensive (but not particularly great) story. If you enjoyed Dying Light 2 and are thirsty for more, you will probably be satisfied with this DLC, but don’t expect it to elevate the whole experience.

    Bloody Ties is a fun DLC, especially if you enjoyed the side activities in the main game, but it’s hard not to think Dying Light 2’s first expansion could have benefited from a bit more time - even after the delays - to help it live up to its full potential.

    The arena combat features in Dying Light 2: Bloody Ties are refreshing for a time. Unfortunately, the clunkiness and tediousness from the base game remains. Worse, there's a litany of crashes, and a game-breaking bug that can cause issues with your save.

    Thoughts-
    If Bloody Ties is supposed to set expectations for what you can expect from the series of expansion releases Dying Light 2 Stay Human is supposed to see down the line, get ready for some sore disappointment. While nothing in the first expansion is outright bad, more than anything, there’s just nothing new to come back to, especially if you’ve already experienced everything the base game has to offer.
