2016 is turning out to be a strong year for the slasher/survival genre video games!
After learning that a Friday the 13th video game was in active development, we now have learned that we can expect yet another slasher style survival game (with a twist) titled Dead by Daylight. The game will pit players against an unknown entity attacking them, with mystery shrouding the entire plot – an effective horror element from the premise. The game will showcase a variety of creatures to face, keeping players on their toes to determine proper survival methods. Dead by Daylight is being developed by Behaviour Interactive Inc. with Starbreeze Studios serving as publishers to the Steam-powered game. Slasher stylized games don’t come along often, so when one with an intriguing setup and a multiplayer function (similarly to a horror film’s victims/survivors) it’s worthy of gaining some attention. The website for Dead by Daylight provides “key features” that can be expected from the game that include:
-As a Survivor go in alone or team up with friends to face an unknown threat. Use equipment at hand, unlocked abilities and environmental objects to outwit the monster and escape from his killing ground.
-Sent into a procedurally generated world, you’ll never know what to expect, what you’re facing and how to get away. You will have to make stressful choices under desperate circumstances. Every decision impacts your chances of survival.
-Killers come from all horror genres, from brutal slashers to terrifying paranormal entities. Master these monster’s unique powers and exploit the knowledge of your “home” to track, hunt down, break and sacrifice your victims before they get a chance to run to safety.
-The asymmetry, procedural factors and unique thinking of human individuals make each Dead by Daylight match an unexpected scenario where the combined behavior of each player creates a truly terrifying and thrilling narrative.
-Dead by Daylight characters have deep progressions and unlockables which can be customized into your own personal strategy. Use your experience, skills and loadout to climb up the competitive ladder and you might eventually discover the truth beyond the fog.
The idea that the game has an adaptability feature is a brilliant way to make players yearn for more horror thrills, so you can practically guarantee this is a video game worth waiting for – and maybe if we’re lucky it’ll get a console release? Keep up with PopWrapped for more on Dead by Daylight!
