Dead By Daylight flies the flag for multiplayer horror games nowadays, using a similar formula to Friday The 13th: The Game to forge a compelling and eerie horror experience for murderers and victims alike. The game’s got a knack for great DLC bonuses, too; its collaborations with the likes of Silent Hill and Stranger Things have helped to spice the game up and make it a great platform to bolster horror icons from TV, Film and video games since the genre’s popularisation. And now, some new gaming icons are coming to the game, and they coincide nicely with a recent game release.


Resident Evil 3 Characters Come To Dead By Daylight

As part of a new DLC pack, you can now play as Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy and Nemesis from Resident Evil 3 in-game, with a whole new Raccoon City Police Station map to go with it. Jill and Leon will join the team of survivors already in-game, and Nemesis will of course take up the role of a killer.

The survivors are similar to the others, but Nemesis has his own special set of skills, including the ability to see the auras of all survivors before trials, and a move that affects all living survivors in a single sweep. He also has a tentacle strike that increases his mutation rate and leaves survivors infected until they can find one of many vaccines dotted around the map.


When Will the DLC Be Available?

Jill, Leon and Nemesis will be joining the roster in Dead By Daylight on June 15, so there’s not long to wait until you can get into the police station and fight your way out again. It’s an exciting DLC drop, and one that’s timed very luckily for the game after the success of Resident Evil: Village. As odd as it might be in any other context, we’re very much looking forward to being murdered in Raccoon City police station!
