Dead by Daylight

 
Dead by Daylight and Resident Evil Team Up to Break Both Games' Player Count Records on SteamJun 15, 2021 - GitHypAfter three unsuccessful attempts (soon to be four with Resident Evil Re:Verse already in trouble and delayed), Capcom have finally found a way to make a popular Resident Evil multiplayer game… and this time they didn’t even have to make a new game… or even do it themselves. Today, Dead by Daylight released its biggest and most successful update yet, a $12 expansion that adds Resident Evil’s iconic Raccoon City Police Station map and playable characters Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Nemesis to the popular 4 vs 1 asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. Originally released in 2016, this isn’t the first time Dead by Daylight has done a crossover with previous DLC including Silent Hill, Stranger Things, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, and many more iconic killers. But today’s big DBD update surpassed anything Behaviour Interactive has done before with other horror franchises -- setting a new all-time peak for the game with 95k concurrent players. Falling just short of topping the Resident Evil franchise’s own all-time peak of 107k players set last month by Village, Dead by Daylight’s new Resident Evil chapter absolutely crushed all of Capcom’s previous attempts at RE multiplayer games such as Operation Raccoon City’s 500-player peak in 2013, Umbrella Corps400-player peak in 2016, and Resistance’s 4,000-player peak last year. And with some help from one of the most active player bases on Steam, Nemesis’ debut in Dead by Daylight even topped his comeback in last year’s singleplayer Resident Evil 3 remake from Capcom, which peaked with just 59k players. Having little competition from other 4 vs 1 multiplayer games after legal troubles and various other issues lead to the demise of Evolve and Friday the 13th, Dead by Daylight's player base has continued to grow year-over-year unchallenged on Steam. Saber Interactive’s upcoming Evil Dead game that just debuted gameplay at E3 2021 looks to offer 4 vs 1 multiplayer fans something new later this year, but with an army of killers and so many players already so heavily invested, Dead by Daylight looks like it’ll be staying at the top of Steam for a while as the developers keep adding new content.The Resident Evil Chapter is now available on SteamJun 15, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsResident Evil is a new Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It includes a Killer, Nemesis; two Survivors, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine; and a new map. Purchasing the add-on unlocks the new Killer, both Survivors, and an exclusive universal Charm: Umbrella Corporation. The new Killer is Nemesis. Take control of Umbrella’s bloodthirsty bio-organic weapon and hunt your targets without mercy. The new Survivors are Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine. Unflinching in his mission to expose Umbrella, Leon has proven himself a true survivor since his first day with the RPD. Jill is a brilliant S.T.A.R.S. agent, one of the only surviving members of her unit, and a hard target for even the most unrelenting adversary. The new map is: The Raccoon City Police Station. The Resident Evil Chapter includes a new map, free for all players. Once home to the RPD’s elite S.T.A.R.S. unit, the labyrinthine hallways of this converted art museum are now overrun by the undead and host to a relentless evil. The Resident Evil Chapter includes: A new Killer: Nemesis 2 new Survivors: Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine An exclusive universal charm: Umbrella Corporation Available via in-game store: Chris and Claire Redfield. The Resident Evil Collection, available via the in-game store, includes two Legendary Sets for Leon and Jill that bring Chris and Claire Redfield into the Fog. From the ravaged streets of Raccoon City to the black Fog of the Entity’s Realm. The hunt is on. See you in the Fog, The Dead by Daylight team. Resident Evil's Nemesis is coming to Dead By DaylightMay 26, 2021 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunLike a giant Katamari made of scabs and jump scares, Dead By Daylight has collected another classic horror fiend to stalk its servers. The upcoming Resident Evil chapter will, unsurprisingly, bring the Umbrella Corp's Nemesis to the multiplayer horror game. The new beast won’t be turning up on his own, though. Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine will be added as survivors for the meat-weapon-gone-rogue to chase. The ghastly collab was announced to celebrate Dead by Daylight’s fifth anniversary. The asymmetric multiplayer game, where teams of survivors try and outlast a singular enemy during a round, is packed with classic horror icons, and the Nemesis fits right in alongside Leatherface and Pyramid Head. A new stalking ground, based on the Raccoon City Police Department from the recent Resident 2 remake, rounds off the new add-on. You can see that below if you skip to "50:49 Resident Evil Chapter Reveal". Read more Dead by Daylight will get a Resident Evil crossover for its fifth anniversaryMay 25, 2021 - PCGamesNDead by Daylight is doing something pretty special for its fifth birthday: the survival horror co-op game will run a Resident Evil crossover, joining in the celebration of the legendary horror franchise's 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, Dead by Daylight will add two survivors and a killer from the Resident Evil series, each with their own unique perks and abilities. Jill Valentine, as she appeared in the Resident Evil 3 Remake, is the first new Resident Evil survivor. Behaviour Interactive says her perks highlight both her specialised military training and her resilience against impossible odds. Joining her is Leon Kennedy, taken from the Resident Evil 2 remake. His perks are also split between offence and support, and he'll be able to spawn a flashbang that blinds the killer - that's a perk he'll always have, and he won't need to equip the item before the match. For the killer, Behaviour Interactive says it had a "lot of different material to choose from," but ultimately it settled on the Nemesis-T type, who is just called The Tyrant in Dead by Daylight's crossover.

All you need to know: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/ Patch notes: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/kb/patchnotes Dead by Daylight's new All-Kill Chapter features a K-Pop killerMar 2, 2021 - ShacknewsDead by Daylight is as full of good original content as it is with guest stories and icons of the horror pantheon, but its next Chapter of new goods might be more outlandish than any we’ve seen before. Behaviour Interactive has revealed its next set of characters - a killer and survivor – in its next Chapter, titled “All-Kill,” and the entire thing is themed around K-Pop music. Behaviour Interactive got together with IGN for an exclusive reveal of its next content recently, during which new killer The Trickster and new survivor Yun-Jin were revealed. The Trickster, named Ji-Woon, is a psychopathic K-Pop star with a taste for murder. The character’s visuals, animations, and Perks are full of sadistic vanity and showmanship. For instance, he wields knives that he can throw one at a time or in a sudden flurry to injure opponents and get close to them for the kill. Also, one of his perks, Starstruck, will Expose characters in his Terror Radius for a short time when he picks up and carries an injured survivor. The Trickster got his first taste for blood from killing his first bandmates. From there, he developed a thirst for murder that pervaded his music and showmanship, and got the attention of Dead by Daylight's mysterious force, The Entity. On the survivor side, Yun-Jin Lee arrives alongside The Trickster, having once been a producer of his music. Yun-Jin has perks that work when her teammates are hurt or in danger. With Fast Track for instance, Yun-Jin gains a token every time another survivor is hooked that allows her to get a progression bonus when she gets great skill checks on generators. An impressive sidenote, Behaviour Interactive was so interested in getting the K-Pop aspect of their new characters right that they actually brought in real-life talent close to the scene to aid in the creation of the All-Kill Chapter. K-Pop band U-KISS singer and songwriter Kevin Woo and Grammy-Award winning Canadian music producer DJ Swivel joined in to consult with Behaviour and ensure the look, feel, and lore of these characters. It’s that extra step that has made Behaviour so successful and surprising with their original content, as we spoke with them about in a recent interview regarding The Realm Beyond remastering of the game and other topics. The All-Kill Chapter, along with The Trickster and Jun-Win, has arrived in Public Test Build servers for Dead by Daylight on Steam. It will come to all available platforms at a later date.

Four years of running, hiding, chasing, hooking, slaying, sacrifice, and survival. It’s amassed a sizable roster of survivors and killers, both original and recognizable from across the horror genre. With quite a few years behind it, Behaviour Interactive recognized that certain early elements of the game were starting to show their age. With that, the studio launched into a refresh of many of its maps, characters, and graphical features with The Realm Beyond on both previous and next-gen gaming platforms. With Dead by Daylight: The Realm Beyond, Behaviour Interactive has heavily refreshed the visuals of various elements of the game, not just for PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC, but also previous generation consoles PS4 and Xbox One as well. With so much reliance on sight and sound, and a large amount of those very elements taking such major reworks, some of The Realm Beyond’s visual elements is bound to affect the feeling of the game. With that in mind, we spoke to Game Director Mathieu Côté and Creative Director Dave Richard about a multitude of matters on Dead by Daylight: The Realm Beyond, including the path of development, how upgrades influenced mechanics, and more. Shacknews: Dead by Daylight: The Realm Beyond is essentially Behaviour Interactive’s way of remastering the game, little by little as the next-gen comes along. And it's not just next-gen. Even on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of this game, people have access to the reworks of stages and reworks of character animations. What was the mentality behind the approach to the remaster? Where are we at in The Realm Beyond roadmap? Mathieu Côté: You're correct. This is absolutely not just for the next-gen. This is essentially an effort to take our game, which is almost five years old, and make sure that people who launch it today for the very first time have an experience that is as shiny and polished and amazing as it can be. We want to make sure that anybody can benefit from this whatever platform they're playing on. So you'll see the results of these improvements on every single platform that's out there. And yes, it is a progress thing in that we've already started doing a lot of work and we continue to do so. For us, It was just a better flow to do it gradually instead of just holding up all of this and releasing it all at once, which was the other option we could have done. Dave Richard: The format of Dead by Daylight is to release a chapter every three months. So while doing these new maps and new characters in time, we've updated our look moving through all of these alongside chapters and trying to bring everything as up-to-date as possible. Of course, the oldest characters and the oldest maps now show their age, so that's what we wanted to prioritize most. And because we're talking about a hide and seek game with a specific mood and lighting, it's more complicated than just saying, "Let’s update the ...Dead by Daylight dev promises to revise recent HUD changesFeb 14, 2021 - EurogamerDead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive is revising changes it recently made to the asymmetrical survival horror's HUD in response to critical player feedback. "Here's a preview of the changes we'll be making to the HUD following your feedback," tweeted Behaviour, including an image of the proposed new design. "Please note that this is a work in progress. We are still actively working on making changes, which will appear with the *second* bugfix patch."

The feature was revealed after the studio apologised for dismissive comments made by one of its developers regarding the community's demand for it. In a clip uploaded to Twitter, the developer states that it's "really boring just blabbing about colourblind mode all the time," and that "continuing to badger us about it isn't going to change anything." The clip was brought to the attention of Able Gamers COO Steven Spohn, who swiftly reached out to the studio for a response. "If you're tired about 'being badgered' about it, imagine how tired people are of not being able to play your game because it's inaccessible to them," he says. The DBD team subsequently thanked Spohn for bringing the issue to its attention, stressing that "this is not indicative of the views of the team, and we deeply apologise for any frustration or harm this may have caused." It then revealed that, contrary to the dev's statement that a colourblind mode would only materialise "if somebody decides that it's something that should be done," one was already well in the works.

EST to Jan 22 Dead by Daylight Player and Viewer Count Launch NumbersJun 29, 2016 - GitHypAfter Evolve last year, you wouldn’t think another developer would try the 4 vs. 1 concept again so soon. Yet, after the success of their Payday series, Starbreeze Studios has once again been inspired by Turtle Rock Studios and publisher’s latest multiplayer game has been killing it as one of the most played games on Steam and most watched on Twitch since it launched two weeks ago. Fresh off their mobile hit, Fallout Shelter, developer Behaviour Interactive’s new PC-exclusive survival horror title, Dead by Daylight, had a strong 11,706 average player count per hour on its first day on Steam. [caption id="attachment_179928" align="aligncenter" width="771"]Dead-by-Daylight-Launch-Numbers Dead by Daylight's June 14 - June 28 Total Non-Unique Player and Viewer Numbers[/caption] Over the past two weeks, the player count values for DbD have been continuing to creep upwards and the recent 10% discount offered via the Steam Summer Sale has also helped the game crack the top 20 most played games by bringing in a peak of 18,027 players in one hour on June 26 and ranking as high as #19. Even more responsible for the game’s success than the recent sale on Steam has been its popularity on Twitch where the viewer count at times doubles and triples the player count. Some of Twitch’s top streamers have gotten hooked on the Killer vs. Team of Survivors gameplay and their viewers can’t seem to get enough of watching them gruesomely kill their friends online. Dead by Daylight has ranked as high as #2 on Twitch with a peak of 76,802 viewers in a single hour on its release date and continues to stay in Twitch’s daily top 10 most watched games. It’ll be interesting to see how long the 4 vs. 1 hype can last for Dead by Daylight. While the player counts have grown, the viewer counts have slightly decreased. Both Behaviour and Starbreeze have managed to retain playerbases in the past with constant updates to their Fallout and Payday games -- after three years Payday 2 is still holding strong in Steam’s daily top 20 most played games. Meanwhile, Evolve struggles to keep 100 players on Steam and 100 viewers on Twitch each hour as a reminder of how quickly the hype died out the last time the 4 vs. 1 concept got overhyped.
