Award winning survival horror game celebrates 4 million copies sold in two years.
To celebrate the two year anniversary of Dead by Daylight, which has sold over 4 million copies, today Behaviour Digital is launching a new chapter, Curtain Call, along with an in-game store and tutorials for new players.
A brand-new chapter for Dead by Daylight, Curtain Call includes a new Killer, Survivor and Map. Players will meet the new killer, The Clown, who has long used his nomadic lifestyle as a cover for his twisted pastimes. He uses his favourite concoction, The Afterpiece Tonic, to great effect, intoxicating and capturing many unwilling victims.
Kate Denson is the new Survivor. As a singer, her life was one of spreading joy and warmth to those around her. She awakes to an eternal nightmare in Campbell’s Chapel, once a haven from the horrors of the asylum, where the only warmth comes from a bonfire and where there is no joy to be found.
The Dead by Daylight economy has been completely overhauled, now giving players the ability to earn new content in addition to buying it. Iridescent Shards are earned with playtime via a new player leveling system. An additional currency called Auric Cells is now available for purchase in packs ranging from 5 USD to 50 USD. Both currencies can be used to unlock characters and skins.
The approach to the store was designed from the ground up to be respectful to players, based on four pillars:
⦁ One Community: Maps will always be free, so the playerbase will never be segmented
⦁ Original Dead by Daylight characters can be earned: the community can now choose between earning or buying new content.
⦁ All in with cosmetic items: players can now personalize their character, adding to their experience
⦁ Transparency: Microtransactions will help support new content development.
Stephen Mulrooney, Senior Vice-President, Behaviour Digital said:
“Behaviour Digital is incredibly proud to celebrate the two milestones for Dead by Daylight: the game’s second-year anniversary, as well as the fact that it has surpassed 4 million copies sold across all platforms. This outstanding performance reflects the ability of our teams to continually receive player feedback to refine their experience and offer new high-quality content.”
Curtain Call is now available on Steam, priced at £5.19 / $6.19, as well as PS4 and Xbox One.
