The Dead by Daylight team has planned tons of exciting content, including upgrades to existing gameplay mechanics and new quality-of-life additions.
In the coming year, fans can expect four new Chapters but in a surprising twist, they can also expect two additional Chapters that are Survivor-only. Dead by Daylight‘s next Chapter, “End Transmission,” is an original one that promises to keep players on their toes. It will be followed by the addition of icon Nicolas Cage as a Survivor in the game. Then, two licensed Killers will be joining the game. Come January, you can expect our last Survivor-only Chapter to be released. Lastly, and before the next Anniversary, an Original Chapter will also see the light of day.
The new Dead by Daylight Chapter, “End Transmission,” introduces science-fiction horror to the acclaimed action horror game.
With a new Map, “Toba Landing,” set on a mysterious and terrifying planet, the Chapter takes players into a unique biome with menacing flora and an atmosphere unlike anything on Earth.
The newest Killer, “The Singularity,” is a monstrous amalgamation of restructured organic matter and machine parts seeking to become the perfect lifeform.
Hope rests with new Survivor Gabriel Soma, a talented technician whose determination helped him escape The Singularity and avoid the terrible fate that befell his crew.
“We’re thrilled to push the fear of the unknown to new heights with ‘End Transmission’,” said Dead by Daylight creative director Dave Richard. “With this new Chapter we are expanding the bounds of The Entity’s reach and exploring dark themes of advanced technology and I think this will be a very frightening experience for all players.”
“End Transmission” will be released on June 13, 2023 for Switch.
