New killer: Leatherface
Whether killers perform their heinous acts by the compulsions of their diseased minds or if they are forced into them by external pressures has long been a matter of debate. But for one killer, nature and nurture are inextricably linked. Leatherface kills not from a desire to exert his will over others, to satisfy carnal urges, or even to quiet the voices in his head. He kills because he is scared. Scared that others will hurt him, scared that his family will be displeased with him, scared that their shared willingness to eat human flesh will be discovered.
Leatherface is here! The chainsaw is fueled, dinner awaits, and you are the main course. Dead by Daylight is getting a new Killer – the iconic Leatherface. Known to horror enthusiast around the world and feared by Survivors, Leatherface is now a part of the Entity’s Realm.
Leatherface is released on Steam for $3.99
