Friday the 13th: The Game has been leaving fans craving more than just Camp Crystal Lake. Instead it’s a game that has left fans scratching at the cabin walls for something entirely new, something bigger, and even meaner. That’s where Behavior Interactive comes in with their newly released game Dead by Daylight, which has taken fans by storm and has sent them chasing after each other in order to survive.
If that hasn’t left you craving the need more for slashers, then the idea of Michael Meyers, one of the faces of horror, will certainly do so for a cool $24.99 for the retail version of the game and the free DLC. If you are one to wonder, yes – yes this is the same game that was released on Steam last year and hasn’t been made available to the public on consoles till this past Tuesday.
The game is almost just like Friday the 13th: The Game as detailed below:
Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical, multiplayer (4 vs 1) horror game where one player takes on the role of a savage killer, and the other four players become survivors frantically scurrying to 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.
As stated by the developers, the game will not have this content available just yet since it’s not ready for consoles, but it will be added soon. Doing so will unlock both Laurie Strode and Michael Meyers for you to enjoy. Just as in the game, you will see him become the ultimate stalker. One that is building up a meter, a power, one that allows him to become the most evil being horror survivors have ever face.
If that doesn’t make you just a bit excited for the game, I don’t know what will. Stay tuned for our impressions and review of the game coming soon to both our website and our YouTube channel.
