Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight, developed by the Canadian studio Behaviour Interactive, is an engaging and immersive online asymmetric multiplayer survival horror game. In this chilling and suspenseful gaming experience, players can take on one of two distinct roles: the Killer or the Survivor. As the Killer, one player becomes a menacing and relentless force, tasked with hunting down and eliminating the other four players, who assume the roles of Survivors.

To achieve victory, the Killer must capture each Survivor and impale them on sacrificial hooks to appease the malevolent Entity, a powerful and sinister presence within the game. On the other side of the deadly equation, the Survivors must work together as a team to outsmart the Killer, escape capture, and ultimately survive the terrifying ordeal.

Their main goal is to repair five generators scattered throughout the game environment, which will activate the exit gates, offering a chance for their harrowing escape from the nightmarish realm. The game’s tension and atmosphere are heightened by its dark and haunting visuals, combined with the heart-pounding gameplay that demands quick thinking, strategy, and teamwork from both sides.

With its dynamic and ever-changing gameplay scenarios, Dead by Daylight keeps players enthralled, making each match a unique and adrenaline-pumping experience.

Dead by Daylight Gameplay


Dead by Daylight offers an intense asymmetrical horror gaming experience, pitting one player as the formidable Killer against a group of four Survivors. Each match is called a trial, and the objective varies for both sides. As Survivors, the players must strive to escape the trial by fixing five out of seven generators scattered throughout the map. These generators power the two exit gates, providing a means of escape from the nightmarish realm.

Meanwhile, the Killer’s mission is to impale all Survivors on sacrificial hooks before they can make their getaway. The act of sacrifice is dedicated to a malevolent force known as the Entity, which adds an eerie and haunting atmosphere to the game. In case only one Survivor remains at the end of the trial, an open escape hatch manifests at a random location on the map. However, if the Killer closes the hatch or if one of the exit gates is opened, the “Endgame Collapse” commences.

During this critical phase, the Survivors must make their escape within a mere two minutes. The timer can be extended if there are any incapacitated or hooked Survivors still present. As the time runs out, any remaining Survivors face a grim fate as they are ruthlessly stabbed and forcefully sacrificed to the menacing Entity right where they stand. This intense gameplay and high-stakes strategy keep players on the edge of their seats, ensuring every trial in Dead by Daylight is a gripping and adrenaline-pumping experience.
