Dead By Daylight's Future Shines Bright
The game's developer sheds some light on the road ahead.
If Behaviour Interactive, the developers of popular multiplayer horror game Dead By Daylight, are to be believed they have a bright future planned for their dark creation. An in-depth news post recently made available details the game's past, present, and future content and how they plan to handle things moving forward.[pullQuote-0]
Dead By Daylight will be getting a steady stream of new content throughout 2018. "4 new chapters. That means 4 new killers, 4 new survivors and 4 new maps. The goal is to always keep you entertained and to set aside time to keep the game balanced," the post read. Additionally, all non-licensed killers and survivors will now be able to be unlocked for free over time utilizing a revamped progression system refered to as a "global player level."
Behavior also explained more changes. "The ranking system is going to be revamped to offer a more interesting, longer and more inclusive progression. We want all players to be able to feel a constant, significant progress within the ladder." On the flipside, likely to make up for this potential loss of revenue, Dead By Daylight will begin offering premium cosmetic items and skins that can purchased with real money or unlocked over time:[blockquote-0]
Behaviour Interactive even treated fans to a little taste of what some of these cosmetics might look like, which you can see below.
Along with this new content announcement, the developer released a content roadmap to help fans keep track of everything, which we also have right here.
Behaviour Interactive then went on to detail a number of game tweaks and changes that are coming soon. They are mainly quality-of-life updates designed to prevent cheating, eliminate toxic players, and fix game various bugs, most notably the save game bug many PC gamers have been experiencing. They stated that "every change is important and keeping everything well balanced requires a lot of attention" and that they "want to put a stronger emphasis on this moving forward."
The developer also stated that going forward they want to ship new content at the same time on all three available platforms so that console gamers especially are not left out in the cold. One other important addition will be a tutorial for new players. This is a much-needed addition since jumping into Dead By Daylight, especially against seasoned killer players, can be extremely intimidating. I've seen many gamers quit after their first few rounds simply because they did not understand the game's mechanics.
With so many different announcements in this one news article, Behaviour was nice enough to summarize it all briefly:[blockquote-1]
Are you excitied for the future of this 4v1 asymetrical horror game? As a player myself, I am personally looking forward to seeing all of these changes go into effect and especially to see which new licensed characters will join the killer roster. If nothing else, the developers have done an amazing job in securing so many iconic horror icons to appear in a single game. Here's to hoping for a possible appearence by Pinhead or maybe ChromeSkull going forward!
