Dead by Daylight
Not yet reviewed.
Death Is Not an Escape.
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and 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.
- Survive Together… Or Not - Survivors can either cooperate with the others or be selfish. Your chance of survival will vary depending on whether you work together as a team or if you go at it alone. Will you be able to outwit the Killer and escape their Killing Ground?
- Where Am I? - Each level is procedurally generated, so you’ll never know what to expect. Random spawn points mean you will never feel safe as the world and its danger change every time you play.
- A Feast for Killers - Dead by Daylight draws from all corners of the horror world. As a Killer you can play as anything from a powerful Slasher to terrifying paranormal entities. Familiarize yourself with your Killing Grounds and master each Killer’s unique power to be able to hunt, catch and sacrifice your victims.
- Deeper and Deeper - Each Killer and Survivor has their own deep progression system and plenty of unlockables that can be customized to fit your own personal strategy. Experience, skills and understanding of the environment are key to being able to hunt or outwit the Killer.
- Real People, Real Fear - The procedural levels and real human reactions to pure horror makes each game session an unexpected scenario. You will never be able to tell how it’s going to turn out. Ambience, music, and chilling environments combine into a terrifying experience. With enough time, you might even discover what’s hiding in the fog.

Dead by Daylight (included Chapters)
Shattered Bloodline is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight, which includes a new Map. The DLC will unlock its new Killer, new Survivor, and an exclusive item for the new survivor.
What lies beneath the mundane can be terrifying. Under the layers of quaint family life, violence festers. When this dark rampant force lashes out, lives are broken and families shattered. Wrath was her bloodline. She came home to find unimaginable horrors, which left their mark. Now she walks, haunting and vengeful, between this world and the next.
Curtain Call is a chapter for Dead by Daylight. It includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map as well as an exclusive item for the new survivor.
People often speak of the tears of a clown, of the sadness that lies beneath the greasepaint smile. What if that wasn’t sadness, but a deep malevolence, born of a life spent in the pursuit of drink and gluttony? A mind that sees others only as vessels for torture, and reduces their bodies down to a single finger, a trophy to be added to a collection? For something like that to survive, it would have to wear a disguise, cloak itself in a brighter aspect and a broad smile, even if it were just painted on.
Spark of Madness
Spark of Madness is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It holds the darkest and most experimental form of treatment - where health is not the goal, just madness. The Doctor will see you now, whether you want to or not. The only glimpse of hope is a young girl, one who never gives up and always finds a way.
Treatment in progress... Information is power. Everything is allowed. Intelligence is a weapon that must be thwarted. This doctor will never stop, treatments will never be too experimental. A young girl who is in it to win, no matter what the game or the rules. A research institution that slowly turns into a prison.
The Spark of Madness Chapter includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map.
Of Flesh and Mud
Of Flesh and Mud is the third Chapter for Dead by Daylight. Prepare for dark hexes and flesh made out of mud and decay, if you dare enter Backwater Swamp and live through the horror it brings. A new killer - The Hag - awaits you in the waterland area and you will meet a new survivor: Ace Visconti.
A hag driven to madness by being devoured alive piece by piece. A survivor that believes luck is always on his side. A wetland with scorched shacks, an eerie mud maze and a rusting boat graveyard lays ahead of you, so tread carefully.
Of Flesh and Mud is the brand new Chapter for Dead by Daylight and it includes a new Killer, a new Survivor and a map.
