A Jurassic Park VHS tape lamp (more…) Dead by Daylight has a Stranger Things crossover nowSep 17, 2019 - PC GamerAsymmetrical horror game Dead By Daylight has had crossovers with Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street, Saw, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Now the tooth-flower-headed Demogorgon from Stranger Things has joined its cast of killers in a new DLC that's available today. The Demogorgon can use portals to the Upside-Down to teleport around and has a suite of perks relating to the generators survivors need to repair to escape. When a survivor is downed by the Demogorgon a generator explodes, survivors repairing them suffer from exhaustion, and when one is repaired nearby windows become overgrown with Upside-Down goo and can't be climbed through. There's also a new map, the Hawkins National Laboratory Underground Complex, and two new survivors: Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington. Nancy's trail of "scratch marks" are invisible when she's at full health, she can heal by climbing into a locker after cleansing a totem, and any generator she's repairing is visible to other survivors. If Steve unhooks another survivor they don't leave a blood trail, and if someone attempts to unhook him the struggle timer pauses for a moment. He also has the ability to self-heal after being unhooked. Oddly his amazing hair does not have any game-affecting power. Dead By Daylight — Stranger Things Chapter is available now.

The next expansion for the 1v4 multiplayer horrorshow will introduce Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington as aspiring survivors, and the Demigorgon as a new baddie out to eat their faces. The nitty-gritty of how they’ll all play is under wraps for now, but I do look forward to seeing how developers Behaviour gamify Steve’s great hair into a character perk. Which they surely they will – how could they not? (more…) Dead by Daylight to get Stranger Things updateAug 20, 2019 - EurogamerNetflix has set up yet another collaboration for its hit show Stranger Things, with an update inspired by the show coming to Dead by Daylight next month. Last month, we saw Stranger Things themed portals crop up in Fortnite in time for the release of the third season of the show. Now, in perhaps a more appropriately-themed game, we'll get to play as a much scarier version of the Demogorgon. The update will feature the Demogorgon as a new killer, Nancy and Steve as new survivors, and even adds the Hawkins National Laboratory: The Underground Complex as a new map.

The Dead by Daylight teamDead 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.
