Dead by Daylight for PC, PS4 and XONE is an asymmetric multiplayer action game. It was created by Behaviour Interactive, known for such titles as Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade or Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise.

Mechanics

Dead by Daylight for PC, PS4 and XONE is based on a plot template used countless times in horror movies. Four ordinary people try to survive the encounter with a murderer, who's extremely strong and hard to defeat. To stay alive, the potential victims should work together with each other, but that doesn't mean they should care about their companions' fate. The game provides you with many chances to betray your allies, since the survival of your character is your priority, even if it means that the others must die.

You experience the game through a first-person perspective when you play as the villain. When playing as a victim, you see things from a third-person perspective, which gives you a better sense of direction and for example allowing you to take a look at what's behind a corner without revealing yourself.

The game features several types of murderers, each having an unique set of abilities. Curiously, the victim players discover who they're dealing with only during the fist face-to-face encounter with their enemy. Combined with procedurally generated maps, it makes the gameplay quite unpredictable, and the victims can never really feel safe.
