Dead by Daylight is an asymmetric survival horror video game that is developed by Behaviour Interactive. Dead by daylight was first released for Microsoft Windows in June 2016. The game is played as a one versus four online multiplayer. Four players play as survivors as a team by avoiding hit or catch by the killer. And the other player takes on the role of the savage killer.
The game includes lots of famous horror killers such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Saw, Evil Dead, Stranger Things, and Scream. Every killer has killer power. And the killer power is unique. For instance, a killer from Stranger Things is able to drive forward and unleash a vicious slash and is able to use portals and the Wraith is able to turn invisible and move faster.
Survivors are required to repair five generators scattered across the entire map to power the exit gates then they need to open the gate and leave the area in order to win the match. However, survivors are not able to fight against the killer and only able to run away from the killer. Thus, survivors need to take the third-person perspective as an advantage to escape the hunt as the killer’s perspective is first-person. Survivors can easily escape from their sight. Also, survivors can use wooden pallets, windows, and items to help them run from the killer.
While survivors are repairing the generators, there will be a random skill check pop-up. If the survivors fail to press it, it will trigger a large noise that can provide your location to the killer. However, if survivors perfectly hit the skill check, it can increase the speed of repairing generators a little bit. Furthermore, when the killer can close to the survivors, survivors are able to hear the heartbeat sound. The closer it is, the louder the heartbeat sound will be. Thus, survivors have enough time to hide or run away. Yet, if survivors run away by sprint instead of walk, footprints will be shown for several seconds which are only visible to the killer. The killer is able to know your location.
To conclude, Dead by Daylight is an intense and horror game even though it is a 2016 game. It is still constantly updating with different maps and characters. It is an excellent game for you to play with your friends if you enjoy being scared all the time or scaring others all the time.
