Dead by Daylight has been around since 2016 and has become popular enough to make its rounds through all the major systems as well as a mobile port by 2020. Developed by Behavior Interactive, Dead by Daylight puts four players together to escape a killer. The killer gets to play in the first-person view while the survivors play in a third-person view. If the players wish to escape the killer, they would need to repair 5 generators found on the map to send power to the exit, which allows them to leave. If all but one survivor is killed, then there is a second option to escape, which is a hatch.
However, the killer can close the hatch before the last survivor reaches it, triggering a two-minute countdown. Unfortunately, there’s no way to attack the killer; all they can do is survive with various items. One such item is a flashlight survivors can use to temporarily blind the killer. Dead by Daylight has received nominal success, having sold over five million copies last year.
Now, it looks like Dead by Daylight is coming to the next-generation of consoles. Yes, this anxiety-causing horror title will be coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. That also means those who already own it for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will get free upgrades when they purchase one of the newer consoles. For the PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia, Dead by Daylight will be getting a much needed visual update. Basically, the game is going to look and feel a lot scarier. The textures are going to be more realistic, there will be ongoing support for a new cross-play feature, and it will run at 4k 60 FPS.
Dead by Daylight’s upgrade will be available sometime later this year during the holiday season. If you want to hype yourself up for how scary the game actually is, check out the official Dead by Daylight: Silent Hill trailer.
