Nintendo have just announced the release date of Dead By Daylight by Behaviour Interactive through Twitter. The game was first unveiled in the February 13th direct this year. The game is already available on various other consoles but has only just now had an official release date for switch. The developer has confirmed support for the pro controller but denied the possibility of cross play between platforms.
The game will run 1080p in TV mode and 720p in handheld. In either mode, the game will run at 30fps. The game averages a score of 70 on metacritic on all platforms and a user rating of 6.0 on the PS4 version. Dead by Daylight launched at around £25/ €29.99 which is a reasonable price, although the switch version is yet to have a price point at the time of writing this article. In my opinion i expect the pricing to be around £20-30 GBP.
From experience, the game is quite fun as it has a steady stream of DLC such as the newly announced Ghost Face from the Scream movies. The game is a blast with friends and would make a good addition to my game library on September 24th.

“Ever wished to play as one of the characters from your favourite horror movies? Dead by Daylight is a 1v4 multiplayer game that allows you to choose between playing an unstoppable Killer and one of four Survivors trying to evade a gruesome death. This edition includes 9 killers and 10 survivors to choose from and 3 cosmetic packs.”
SURVIVE TOGETHER… OR NOT – Survivors can either cooperate with the others or be selfish. Your chance of survival will vary depending on whether you work together as a team or if you go at it alone. Will you be able to outwit the Killer and escape their Killing Ground?
A FEAST FOR KILLERS – Dead by Daylight draws from all corners of the horror world. As a Killer, you can play as anything from a powerful slasher to terrifying paranormal entities. Familiarize yourself with your killing grounds and master each Killer’s unique power to be able to hunt, catch and sacrifice your victims. This deadly game of cat and mouse also lets you meet some of the most iconic Killers and Survivors from horror franchises.
DEEPER AND DEEPER – Each Killer and Survivor has their own deep progression system and plenty of unlockables that can be customized to fit your own personal strategy. Experience, skills and understanding of the environment are key to being able to hunt or outwit the Killer.
REAL PEOPLE, REAL FEAR – The unique levels and real human reactions to pure horror make each game session an unexpected scenario. You will never be able to tell how it’s going to turn out. Ambience, music, and chilling environments combine into a terrifying experience. With enough time, you might even discover what’s hiding in The Fog.
