Starbreeze and Behaviour Digital Inc. sent out a press release today announcing the release of their 4-v-1 horror game Dead by Daylight. Here you are either cast as the antagonist from a list of familiar killers or as a survivor that can be upgraded for a better chance to escape. Each ‘killing ground’ is procedurally-generated which will make surviving that much more difficult. But you shouldn’t be a lazy slasher as your victims might band together to stop you in your bloody tracks. As an added treat, you can try out Dead by Daylight if you’re currently at E3 in the West Hall Lobby at booth #F5C . You can even meet the devs (and maybe even a-not-so-welcome guest). The game is currently available for Steam and the $19.99 USD price for the normal copy is 10% off until July 4th. You can read the full release below.
