Dead by Daylight is a popular online game developed by Behaviour Interactive, a Canadian studio. It falls under the genre of asymmetric multiplayer survival horror. The game features a one-versus-four gameplay, where one player assumes the role of a Killer, while the other four players take on the role of Survivors. The objective for the Killer is to impale each Survivor on sacrificial hooks to satisfy a malevolent entity called the Entity. On the other hand, the Survivors must evade capture and collaborate to repair five generators, which will power up the exit gates.
In addition to its original characters, Dead by Daylight includes licensed characters and settings from various franchises. These franchises include A Nightmare on Elm Street, Attack on Titan, Crypt TV, Evil Dead, Halloween, Hellraiser, Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, Ringu, Saw, Silent Hill, Stranger Things, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The game was initially released for Windows in 2016, followed by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions in 2017. The Switch version became available in 2019, while the game expanded to Android, iOS, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and Xbox Series X/S in 2020. Originally published by Starbreeze Studios from 2016 to 2018, the publishing rights were later acquired by Behaviour Interactive. The Nintendo Switch version is published by 505 Games, while the physical copies for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are published by Deep Silver.
