'Dead by Daylight' Celebrates 8th Anniversary With Upcoming Dungeons & Dragons And Castlevania Chapters, 2v8 Mode Details And More - Trailer

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.

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!

Huge surprises and big twists were on display during Dead by Daylight’s Eighth Anniversary broadcast showing that another year of awesome content is coming.

Two of six upcoming Chapters were revealed, including the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons Chapter and a Castlevania Chapter later in the year. The long-awaited 2v8 Mode was also detailed. The good news didn’t end, as fans were also treated to updates on The Casting of Frank Stone and the enigmatic Project T as well as the surprise release of a brand-new game, What the Fog.

Dead by Daylight x Dungeons & Dragons

A new tale is about to begin! Dead by Daylight: Dungeons & Dragons was announced as the game’s next major Chapter. Iconic D&D villain Vecna, known in Dead by Daylight as The Lich will impose his deadly will as the new Killer, while a Bard, Aestri Yazar is the new Survivor. The thrilling new Map, Forgotten Ruins takes players to a mysterious dungeon chock-full of easter eggs for fans.

D&D staples such as getting loot, magical items, and rolling dice will also be woven into the gameplay letting players channel their inner adventurer.

Players can try out the new Killer, Survivors, and gameplay features in the Public Test-Build, available now.

2V8 Mode

In a news drop that’s sure to please long-time fans, the 2V8 Game Mode was announced for Dead by Daylight offering a brand-new gameplay experience that promises to shake up The Entity’s Realm. The widely requested mode will see 2 Killers face off against 8 Survivors on a much larger Map.

To ramp up the action, several gameplay adjustments have been made including the replacement of Perks for what essentially amounts to a class system and the addition of Cages instead of Hooks. More information on the 2V8 Game Mode will be revealed in a future livestream this July.

What the Fog, a brand-new game out now

In yet another surprise for fans, a brand-new 2-person co-op roguelite game from the world of Dead by Daylight called What the Fog was announced and released during the livestream. Players take on the role of Dwight, Claudette, or Feng Min and work together to survive a hostile world as they run, jump, and shoot their way through an army of deadly monsters and bosses.

The game is available now and the first 2 million copies can be obtained for FREE by signing in to or creating a Behaviour Account and following the steps shown on the site. What the Fog can also be purchased on Steam for $4.99 USD.

Dead by Daylight Expansion

Eager fans were also treated to updates on the previously announced games from the world of Dead by Daylight.

Still in its early stages of development, the unnamed session-based PvE action-horror shooter now codenamed Project T, is opening its doors to the community to involve them in its creation. Players will be able to join the Insider Program to receive exclusive news, and the chance to participate in playtests and share their ideas and feedback on the game.

A new gameplay trailer for The Casting of Frank Stone was also shared, hinting at the dark, branching narrative that lies before players as the creation of an independent movie unlocks horrors beyond comprehension.

Castlevania’s Gothic Horror Comes to The Fog

The final surprise of the show featured a trailer for the upcoming Castlevania Chapter. Players were treated to a small glimpse of what they can expect when the long-running gaming franchise swoops in to sink its teeth into Dead by Daylight later this year.

Behaviour has implemented Cross-Play across PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, allowing players on console and PC to face trials together, while Cross-Friends will let you create a friends list that is cross-platform and enjoy an unprecedented multiplayer experience in their favorite multiplayer horror game.  

Dead by Daylight is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
