“This is only the beginning,” the team promises.
This coming June will mark the two-year anniversary of slasher game Dead by Daylight, which has continued to grow bigger and better with the addition of killers, survivors and maps based on hit horror franchises like Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Saw. Looking ahead, the developers have taken some time today to tease the future.
“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,” Behaviour Interactive notes. “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.”
They continue, “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.”
Additionally, new outfits will be added for killers and survivors, along with a revamped ranking system to offer “a more interesting, longer and more inclusive progression.”
