While Friday the 13th: The Game won the year by letting us kill people as Jason Voorhees, slasher game Dead by Daylight also brought a whole lot of horror icon love to the gaming world last year. Leatherface, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger were all added into the game as playable killers, and another franchise villain is joining them this year.
An official trailer released today teases the arrival of the Saw franchise’s Jigsaw!
We have no way of knowing how the character/franchise will be integrated into the game, but we’d say it’s safe to expect a new playable character and map.
Stay tuned for more!
“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.”
