Interactive behavior Dead By Daylight has incorporated popular horror properties over the past half-decade, adding everything from Pyramid Head to Hellraiser. The asymmetrical survival horror title invites four players, called Survivors, to evade a murderous player, the Killer – and it's as addictive as it sounds. March 2022 will see the next major licensed property added to gaming when Japanese psychological horror franchise The Ring (The Ring) makes the jump to the popular title. The plans were announced yesterday in a brief YouTube trailer.
Details on how The Ring franchise will be incorporated are scarce at this time, but it appears the collaboration will draw inspiration from both the 1998 Japanese film adaptation and the original Koji Suzuki novel the film was based on. based. It's unclear which characters will appear, although Sadako as the new killer would be more than enough to scare off normal players.
Alongside the trailer, Dead by Daylight director Mathieu Côté commented in a statement. "This new chapter will give our players something intensely dark and unsettling, a truly thrilling experience that adds to the already high intensity of our game," he said. When asked how this match made in heaven came about, Côté seemed particularly thrilled. “The ring was high on my wish list of potential collaborations! So we can say that creating a new chapter based on this Japanese masterpiece is a dream come true,” he said. "Dead by daylight is a way for us to introduce our fans to the fears and nightmares of other cultures, northern European folklore with the Kinship Chapter for example, or Latin American heritage with our new chapter Portrait of a Murder. So offering gamers around the world a deep dive into this gem of Japanese culture is an honor for us and a very exciting project.
