Asymmetrical horror game Dead By Daylight has had crossovers with Scream (opens in new tab), Nightmare on Elm Street (opens in new tab), Saw (opens in new tab), and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab) is available now.
