Behaviour Interactive have announced the release of its tenth chapter for its survival-horror game Dead by Daylight on December 11th. "Darkness Among Us" includes a new map, killer and survivor. The studio also announced dedicated servers for the summer of 2019. Now is the perfect time to join the 10 million players who have enjoyed this daunting game of cat and mouse since launch, in June 2016!
In "Darkness Among Us," for the first time in Dead by Daylight, the killer is human, making him much harder to differentiate from the survivors. In this chapter, players will encounter a group of four friends who have become killers. They call themselves The Legion and they draw their power from the thrillingly insane freedom of not abiding to any rules but their own. Players will choose to embody one of the agile teenagers able to catch their victims off-guard with their power, Feral Frenzy.
The new survivor is Jeff Johansen, an artist with a heart of gold. He has a dark past but led a quiet, simple life until his father passed, leaving things to sort out. The action takes place in Ormond, Canada, once a small, remote ski town with idyllic slopes, turned obsolete. Mount Ormond is now a soulful, deforested graveyard where gangs and teenagers go looking for trouble. Some people believe that the mountain hides a bottomless hole from where no one can return…
The chapter will be available on PC through Steam and other digital distribution channels and on PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
The Darkness Among Us Chapter includes:
1 New Killer + Perks and Power — The Legion
1 New Survivor + Perks—Jeff Johansen
1 New Map—Mount Ormond Resort
1 Exclusive Item—Jeff’s In the Shadow of Death shirt
Dead by Daylight will also be migrating from a peer-to-peer network to dedicated servers on all platforms by the end of summer 2019. This is the next logical step in ensuring the longevity of the game for the future. Going with dedicated servers will improve the stability and performance when connecting to a live match and will bring more flexibility.
“This has been the number one request from the community and we are excited to finally be able to make this announcement! We are also happy to announce that our team of programmers has already done a first successful internal test back in November. We still have a long way to go before fully migrating to dedicated servers and will keep you posted on our milestones as we progress.” said Mathieu Côté, Game Director of Dead by Daylight.
