What is Dead by Daylight?

Dead by Daylight is an indie horror game developed and published by Behaviour Interactive. Dead by Daylight is both an action and survival horror multiplayer game in which one crazed, unstoppable Killer hunts down four Survivors through a terrifying nightmarish world in a deadly game of Cat & Mouse.

  • As a Survivor, go in alone or team up with friends to face an unknown threat. Use Items at hand, unlocked abilities and environmental objects to outwit the Monster and escape from its killing grounds.​
  • Set in procedurally generated Maps, you'll never know what to expect, what you're facing and how to get away. You will have to make desperate choices under stressful circumstances. Every decision impacts your chances of survival.​
  • Killers come from all horror genres, from brutal slashers to terrifying paranormal entities. Master these Monsters' unique Powers and exploit the knowledge of your "home" to track, hunt down, break and sacrifice your victims before they get a chance to escape to safety.​
  • The asymmetry, procedural factors and unique thinking of human individuals make each Dead by Daylight trial an unexpected scenario where the combined behaviour of each Player creates a truly terrifying and thrilling narrative.​
  • Dead by Daylight Characters each have a deep progression and Unlockables which can be customised into your own personal strategy. Use your experience, skills, and load-out to climb up the competitive ladder and you might eventually discover the truth beyond The Fog.













    Which platforms are included in cross-play?
    You will be able to play between Steam, Microsoft Store, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The Dead by Daylight Mobile game is not included in cross-play. Stadia will also join other platforms at launch

    If other platforms have content I cannot access on my platform, what will happen when I play with these players?
    You will play against these players as you would any other, you will see the content as they play it. The only restriction is that you will not be able to access the content if it isn’t available on your platform.


    What happens if one platform gets an update late?
    To be able to cross-play together, platforms needs to be on the same version of the game. If one platform gets the update late, they will match together (not cross-play) until they are on the same version as the others.

I primarily play Killer, but would be up for the occasional Survivor match - though I would be little more than dead weight in that regard. Great OT!

I am a fan of OTZDarva's streams and videos if you need to get a good idea of how to best use certain killers:

Hey, here we go! I was wondering why we didn't have a OT for this game, but glad to see there is one now. I've been mostly playing on PS4 since the cross play stuff went live. I was having too many connection and errors on PC.

If anyone wants to friend me on PSN, my name is Ockman, or within dead by daylight, the hashtag id I have is #387d

I like this game, I have 60 hours on it. However recently its been taking a long time to get into matches. Also the game lags in the menus but its fine once the match begins.

Really even after crossplay? I have been finding matches super quick. The only time I have had long queues are at night. What time zone are you in?

Yeah, even after crossplay, I also feel like I'm waiting a real long time for matches. Not every time, but I've waited as long as 5 minutes for a group to matched up with.

Those new graphics look amazing but the base game still runs like dog shit for killers even on a Scorpio. Why would I want even better graphics, lol.

Pretty decent killer perks. Survivor not so much. I guess the healing one is ok.

I’ve been stuck on this challenge for the tome to stun a killer three times in a match for days now. I always either get some killer that super respects pallets or a killer that negates pallets like Nurse or Huntress.

I’ve been loving Bubba since the update.




Not a great survivor, I know, but his chainsaw is pretty much impossible to escape in most situations now. I love that build, too. It makes survivors unaware of my location so often. They’re basically punished for doing gens.

Bubba is the bane of my existence whenever I hear that chainsaw. lol

Yeah he’s a pain to go against especially on open maps. Still not as bad as a Forever Freddy though.

I’m not feeling the new killer. The perks seem interesting.

I wish they’d just spend the resources to make a full on sequel and add multiple survivor objectives.

PSA if anyone plays Dead by Daylight on their switch. There is a glitch that when it is docked the graphics will look super blurry like its in handheld mode. Just undock and redock your switch while Dead by Daylight is open and it will be fixed.

Blight is fun but not a great killer. Compound 21 or whatever the add on is that lets you see auras any time you slam, that shit is busted lol.

Unsurprisingly, on my Xbone X, the game runs like doodoo ever since the update. Especially Blight, have to restart the game constantly to keep it playable. Otherwise the frame drops are just ridiculous.

More Bubba goodness:


According to Leaks by Daylight he’s getting the black suit cosmetic soon.
Not to spoil your fun but Prettyface/suit will not be the first Leatherface cosmetic. Instead it will be this one:




Also don’t use Leaks By Daylight as a source. There was a major rift and all the leakers and dataminers created our own community in DBDLeaks.

The dude who owned LBD now steals all his ‘leaks’ from us and adds his own baseless speculation.

Yeah I saw that on LBD awhile back.

Idk how in 2020 you make a cosmetic for Leather fucking face and it isn't the suit.

Well I'm sure the suit is coming next, or now they might both drop in the same patch. As the Old Lady cosmetic was removed from the dev build of the upcoming mid-chapter patch. It's being delayed for whatever reason.

I play on PC and switch. Do you think we will ever see the other missing killers on switch ?
Which ones are the Switch version missing?
The NOES characters are the only ones not playable on the Switch. The issue with the NOES license is that the Wes Craven estate used a US law to reclaim the American copyright for the script of the first film. So now NOES has two owners: the Craven Estate and Warner Btothers.

It should be noted the reclamation happened in mid 2019 and the NOES chapter has not been removed from the game. Unlike MK 9 which had to be removed because of the Freddy license change.

Not only has the NOES content stayed after the license transfer, it’s gotten major changes with Freddy’s rework, the first Badham rework, his wall breaking animation, and the second Badham changes.

So it’s clear all 3 parties (Cravens, WB, BHVR) have come to a temporary agreement to keep Freddy in DBD.

Now when they agree to a more permanent agreement that includes the Switch, Stadia, and Windows Store platforms is anyone’s guess.
