8th Anniversary with new modes and D&D chapters

Dead by Daylight turns eight years old today, and to celebrate this important milestone Interactive behavior hosted an anniversary broadcast to share new details about updates to the asymmetrical horror game. This includes the official reveal of a new game mode, details about the previously announced D&D chapter and updates about upcoming spin-off projects.

New game modes and updates for Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight's 2V8 mode has been officially announced

Dead by Daylight fans can rejoice: a 2V8 mode is being introduced. In this game mode, two killers compete against eight survivors. To accommodate this new dynamic, there will be a larger map. Unlike the previous game mode, there will be no perks in 2V8 mode, but rather a class system.

Behavior Interactive stresses that the launch of this mode is dependent on community feedback. The initial release serves as a basis for future improvements and modifications. More details will be announced in July, with a release scheduled for late summer.

Dungeons & Dragons chapter coming next month

Following the D&D crossover, the next licensed chapter has now been officially revealed. This chapter will be released on June 3rd, and introduces Vecna ​​as the new assassin. Vecna ​​will be able to use four spells: Fly, Flight of the Damned, Mage Hand, and Sphere of Distraction.

The two new survivors are the two bards: the human male Pyramar Oraz and the female dwarf Estre Yazar. Both characters have three unique advantages: Mirror Illusion, Bardic Inspiration, and Silent Insight. A new map called “Forgotten Ruins” is also introduced. This dungeon map features a spacious main floor and a vast underground section filled with horrific trials and secrets.
