Stranger Things is coming to Dead by Daylight in a new update

Oh no! It’s the demogorgon!

Asymmetrical horror game Dead by Daylight has added a few iconic killers to the game before, including A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger and Scream’s Ghostface. Today, Behaviour Interactive announced another tie-in to a big horror property: Stranger Things.

Dead by Daylight pits four survivors against one killer. The killer is invulnerable and equipped with powerful abilities, and the survivors must work together to open the arena’s doors and escape. Stranger Thingsever-terrifying Demogorgon will be playing the role of the killer. The monster was the primary antagonist of the first season of Stranger Things, only to be replaced by the smaller demo-dogs and eventually season 3’s Mind Flayer monster.

Players will also get two new survivors with this update, which is unprecedented; it’s usually one survivor for every killer who gets released. While we haven’t seen them truly team up since the Stranger Things’ first season, Nancy Wheeler, a budding journalist with a penchant for getting into supernatural trouble, and Steve Harrington, everyone’s favorite monster-whacking, ice cream-scooping dad, will both be available as survivors.

This chapter is set to release in September on both PC and consoles.
