Dead By Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive has been busy toiling away on their 4v1 asymmetric slasher since its launch in 2016.
Fans of the IP have been gifted with a multitude of awesome playable killers, most of which have been plucked straight out of horror’s most prestigious cinematic properties. From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface, to Halloween’s Michael Myers, to A Nightmare On Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger, to even Saw’s very own Pighead, it’s safe to say that the team behind Dead By Daylight have refused to rest on their blood-soaked laurels, delivering new content with regularity to keep the ravenous fanbase happy.
To continue this powerful momentum, the developer has announced today that they want to add, “4 new killers, 4 new survivors and 4 new maps,” over the course of their third year (starting this June).
Here’s the official word, straight from Behaviour Interactive:
Since launch, Dead by Daylight has come a very long way. We’ve added tons of new content. We brought in 8 new survivors, 8 new killers, 11 new maps set in 8 new locations. We added a bunch of features you had been asking for like ‘survive with friends’ modes, seasonal events, the shrine of secrets and a lot of new languages. Today, we want you to know that we are more committed than ever to continue supporting Dead by Daylight for years to come. June 2018 will mark our 2 year anniversary, and we believe that this is just the beginning.
Continuing on, they write:
Over the course of year 3 (starting in June), Dead by Daylight will be getting 4 new chapters. That means 4 new killers, 4 new survivors and 4 new maps. The goal is to always keep you entertained and to set aside time to keep the game balanced. We also decided to make a major change about how players unlock survivors and killers. Starting from our new chapter, to be released in June, all non-licensed survivors and killers (past and future) will be unlockable through playtime. In other words, players will have the choice between playing their way into the new content or, as before, buying them outright through a DLC chapter.
So, there you have it. Dead By Daylight fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as it’s looking like the grizzly slash-’em-up will continue to receive a ton of fresh, new content for a long while to come. Here’s hoping the team add in another iconic character from horror cinema’s finest in the future, like Pennywise, Ghostface or Pinhead, for example.
Fingers crossed, eh?
