Released last year on PC, and more recently brought to consoles, Dead by Daylight was developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Starbreeze Studios. Offering a unique asymmetrical multiplayer experience deeply lodged in the horror genre, Dead by Daylight sees four survivors working together to repair generators while attempting to outwit, outrun and outlast a tenacious, unstoppable killer.
