Dead by Daylight has become so popular that it’s now expanding its franchise with a board game. And in a recent interview with The Loadout, Dead by Daylight’s creative director, David Richard, said that the team plans to bring even more original and licenced content to the game in the future.
Richard also stated there were no plans for a Dead by Daylight sequel, which leads us to believe that they will be putting all their efforts into the current iteration of the game by delivering future updates to the current platforms.
The game still sees approximately 50,000 players a month on Steam alone, and has collaborated with some of horror’s biggest hitting franchises, like Hellraiser, Resident Evil, and Saw. So, we’ll be keeping an eye on what comes next from the Montreal-based studio.
If you’re still playing, we’ve compiled a list of Dead by Daylight killers and ranked them in a tier list.
Dead by Daylight Board Game Launches on Kickstarter
Dead by Daylight, the hit asymmetric horror game, is looking to leap into the world of board games. An official Kickstarter is now live for a board game adaptation, and the team needs $250k to make that happen.
Dead by Daylight: the Board Game will be available in two varieties. The standard edition is priced at $49.99 USD and includes 6 Killers, 7 Survivors, and 2 maps. The collector’s edition is priced at $99.99 USD and includes 16 Killers, 17 Survivors, and 4 maps, upgraded components, and additional hook and generator miniatures to complement the game’s ambiance. The collector’s edition will have limited availability post-Kickstarter and will not be available in stores.
