'Dead by Daylight' (ALL) Chapter 10 Arrives Next Week, Dedicated Server In 2019

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2018 @ 10:56 p.m. PST

Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game in which one crazed killer hunts four friends through a terrifying nightmare.

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.

The game features procedurally generated levels, so players never experience a repetitive map. Be the killer and massacre all your victims before they escape, by using your speed and power in 1st person, or team up with your friends to try and outwit the killer with your superior awareness and agility in a 3rd person's view as he hunts you through a nightmare world.


Behaviour announced the release of its tenth chapter for its survival-horror game Dead by Daylight® on December 11. Darkness Among Us includes a new map, killer and survivor. The studio also announced dedicated servers for the summer of 2019.

For the first time in Dead by Daylight, the killer is human, making him much harder to differentiate from the survivors. In this chapter, players will encounter a group of four friends who have become killers. They call themselves The Legion and they draw their power from the thrillingly insane freedom of not abiding to any rules but their own. Players will choose to embody one of the agile teenagers able to catch their victims off-guard with their power, Feral Frenzy. 

The new survivor is Jeff Johansen, an artist with a heart of gold. He has a dark past but led a quiet, simple life until his father passed, leaving things to sort out. The action takes place in Ormond, Canada, once a small, remote ski town with idyllic slopes, turned obsolete. Mount Ormond is now a soulful, deforested graveyard where gangs and teenagers go looking for trouble. Some people believe that the mountain hides a bottomless hole from where no one can return… 

The chapter will be available on PC through Steam and other digital distribution channels and on PlayStation 4® and XBOX One. 

The Darkness Among Us Chapter includes:

  • 1 New Killer + Perks and Power — The Legion
  • 1 New Survivor + Perks—Jeff Johansen
  • 1 New Map—Mount Ormond Resort
  • 1 Exclusive Item—Jeff’s In the Shadow of Death shirt
DEDICATED SERVERS

Dead by Daylight will be migrating from a peer-to-peer network to dedicated servers on all platforms by the end of summer 2019. This is the next logical step in ensuring the longevity of the game for the future. Going with dedicated servers will improve the stability and performance when connecting to a live match and will bring more flexibility.

“This has been the number one request from the community and we are excited to finally be able to make this announcement! We are also happy to announce that our team of programmers has already done a first successful internal test back in November. We still have a long way to go before fully migrating to dedicated servers and will keep you posted on our milestones as we progress.” said Mathieu Côté, Game Director, Dead by Daylight 

Players take on the role of both killer and survivors in a deadly game of cat and mouse. It’s a Mature Gamer take on the thrills of Hide & Seek!
