Dying Light 2 How To Start Bloody Ties Dlc Quest First Blood

Dying Light 2: Bloody Ties is available now. At least, it’s supposed to be, according to a tweet from developer Techland. Here’s the kicker: you might encounter a few issues to get it to pop up in-game. Here’s our Dying Light 2 guide to help you start the Bloody Ties DLC quest called First Blood.

Dying Light 2: Bloody Ties guide – How to start the First Blood DLC quest

Here’s the gist if you want to start the Bloody Ties DLC quest in Dying Light 2:

  • Make sure you own the Bloody Ties DLC.
  • Go to your Steam library -> Dying Light 2 -> Manage my DLC -> take note if the DLC has a check mark and that it’s installed.
  • A pop-up on the main menu should appear (seen below), letting you know that it’s working.
  • Complete the prologue and reach Villedor. The DLC quest, First Blood, should appear in your journal.
  • You can go ahead and tackle that whenever you feel like it. However, it’s recommended to reach the main quest called A Place to Call Home. This is the halfway point of the campaign, where you’ll finally unlock the fast travel function in the game.

What if the quest doesn’t appear?

This actually happened to me. I was given a review code, and I made sure it’s installed. When I loaded my backup save (before the point of no return), the quest didn’t appear at all. Here’s what I recall:

  • Upon launching the game, I did see the notifications that Bloody Ties is installed, as well as others telling me about previous updates/events.
  • When I loaded my save, there was an NPC talking to Aiden. The quest didn’t appear at all.
  • I decided to exit and relaunch Steam. (If you’re playing the live build, you may need to check if there’s a game update that occurs.)
  • Once I could control my character, I fast traveled to the Fish Eye subway station and rested.
  • I climbed to the Fish Eye bar and waited a bit. That’s when the First Blood quest popped up, alongside a marker on the map.

Note: This was how I got the Dying Light 2: Bloody Ties First Blood quest to show up on my end. Do keep in mind that this is for the review build, not the live/retail build available to everyone. What I also recall is that the DLC isn’t supposed to come out until November 10, and not the evening of November 9, as we’ve seen. I can’t be certain if this has anything to do with current issues regarding the quest.
