The Dead by Daylight team has revealed a brand new teaser trailer showcasing a horror icon in the form of Scream’s Ghostface. Though we knew about the latest addition previously through a few leaks and teasers, this is the first trailer showing off the upcoming villain and what he’ll have to bring to the Dead by Daylight experience.
According to the studio, “Acquaintances are a dangerous deception. The workplace is filled with them; strangers seated beside us, five days a week. A distant familiarity grown from habit; the blanks filled with assumptions as we forget how little we know, until proven otherwise. No one thought the man seated on their left could be responsible for the murder of a dozen people. Until proven otherwise. The Ghost Face took full advantage of that fact, blending in the everyday. He would have gotten away with it as he had before: he would have packed his bags when the investigation pointed in his direction, driven a few miles, and looked for another job. But this time he found a richer hunting ground…”
Ghostface will officially be arriving on June 18th on all platforms.
For more about the game, “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.”
The Survivors will play in the third-person perspective and will have a leg up on the Killer with additional situational awareness. For those that play the Killer, the game shifts to a first-person perspective for a more honed experience.
Other key features include:
- 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.
Constantly new Killers and experiences are being added, making this online game a treasure in the horror community. Traditionally, it’s really not all that scary but if you’re a total wuss like I am – prepare to scream – a lot – from jump scares. I’m not ashamed, I’m not proud.
