Be patient. Michael is coming to your console.
Just last month we let you know that Behavior Interactive’s slasher game Dead by Daylight had finally been made available on Xbox One and Playstation 4, but the exciting news was soured a bit when we realized that the “Halloween Chapter” DLC pack was NOT included with the console release.
But today brings really good news.
That pack, which includes Michael Myers and Laurie Strode as playable characters, along with a Haddonfield map, is coming to both Xbox One and Playstation this coming August!
Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical, multiplayer (4 vs 1) horror game where one player takes on the role of a savage killer, and the other four players become survivors frantically scurrying to avoid being caught, tortured and killed. Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey.
The Survivors’ goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer – something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.
The Halloween Chapter allows to play as either Michael Myers (killer) or Laurie Strode (survivor) in a special Haddonfield map, which is ripped straight out of the original Halloween.
Behavior producer Mathieu Cote teased last year, “it’s based on the original movie. Michael is the ultimate stalker. So as opposed to all the other killers that we have, Michael sees you and he watches you. So the power of Michael grows as he’s stalking you. And at some point he will be able to build up that meter, that power, until he becomes evil incarnate.”
