Downloadable content has really opened up the floodgates for our favorite horror icons to head into the world of video games, some for the very first time and others for the first time in many years. Most recently, Mortal Kombat X brought Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Predator, and a Xenomorph into the fighting arena, and now Dead by Daylight is following suit.
Behavior Interactive’s survival horror game, which was released for Microsoft Windows back in June of this year, allows you to either play as a slasher killer or a survivor fighting for his/her life, and just in time for Halloween – in fact, it’s set to drop precisely on Halloween – a new DLC pack will allow you to control either Michael Myers or Laurie Strode. In addition, the pack will come with a map of Haddonfield, and Behavior producer Mathieu Cote promises that it will all be very true to John Carpenter’s original film.
Speaking with IGN at this year’s New York Comic Con, Cote teased the DLC content.
“[It’s] going to change quite a lot of how the game is played. With this big street that’s got nowhere to hide. Well-lit. And then these houses that you have to go in and scavenge what you need in there,” he explained. “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 watching you. And at some point he will be able to build up that meter, that power, until he becomes evil incarnate.”
