Get your wallets and your nerves ready, kids, because Death by Daylight will soon be hiding and seeking on your home console.
Swedish based publisher Starbreeze and creators Behaviour Interactive out of Canada will continue their partnership in porting their much loved multiplayer splat fest to both PS4 and Xbox One later this fine 2017. It’s good news for those who have been waiting to get their hands on the game and should hopefully open the series out to a ton of new players along with it, not that there aren’t playing appreciate the chance to chop up loved ones on a consistent basis already.
There’s no word on whether the current slate of DLC (past and future) will be included in the digital only port, only that a price and release date will be announced at a later date. I’d suspect that everything that has been added to the game so far on PC will be there from day one, though it’s a question of whether it will be included from the start or released as separate DLC packs in a similar fashion to its predecessor. Time will tell.
“We’re proud of Behaviour Digital’s success with Dead by Daylight and can’t wait to deliver it to consoles together.”
– Mikael Nermark, Starbreeze CoO
If you’ve never played Death by Daylight, it’s essentially an adult take on Hide & Seek, with four players trying to escape from an enclosed space from a fifth player who, with a lot of special attacks and a little luck, is trying to hunt them down. Since its release last June, it’s so far sold more than 1.8 million copies through Steam and has had a constant stream of updates and new content since, including characters and scenarios based on the Halloween movie franchise. Check it out on Steam now if you don’t want to wait for its appearance on console, but we will endeavour to survive long enough to keep you up to speed as soon as a release date is confirmed.
