One, two, Freddy’s coming for you… well, for those of you who play Dead by Daylight on PC anyway!
Earlier today, Canadian developers Behaviour Digital Inc. and indie publishers Starbreeze AB announced that the latest addition to the games killer roster is none other than the “Springwood Slasher” Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Krueger joins Michael Myers from Halloween and Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre who have been added to the game in previous DLCs as well as the original Killers such as the Trapper, the Nurse, and the Huntress.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game, Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game where one player acts on behalf of a serial killer and four other players are the survivors who are trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed.
As you can see from the watching the trailer below, the Freddy Krueger content is going to be available to Steam players on October 26 but, other than showing him in all his glory, the trailer gives absolutely nothing away with regards to gameplay. Of course, his signature ability is more supernatural compared to the likes of Myers and Leatherface so it will be interesting to see what the developers do with him. Stay tuned to check out our preview of the new content!
