The Friday the 13th game might still be some time away, but in the meantime we’ve got the similar Dead by Daylight, which has just launched on Steam.
Play as either a deranged serial killer and hunt your victims across the woods or as one of the hapless victims as they try to escape.
Dead by Daylight is both an asymmetrical and survival horror multiplayer game in which one crazed, unstoppable killer hunts four survivors through a terrifying nightmarish world in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
As a survivor, you can look after number one or cooperate with the others against 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 aren’t limited to a single horror genre, and our roster will grow after launch. Master these monsters’ 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 minds 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.
