Dead by Daylight Free Weekend

A free weekend is underway on Steam for Dead by Daylight, the asymmetric multiplayer game. As noted on Steam news, the game is also on sale for the duration of the event. Here's a description of the game:
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed.

Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey.

The Survivors' goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer - something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.

On the one hand, the premise of this game seems interesting. On the other hand, sounds like this is the ultimate griefing bullshit game, anybody with some actual experience playing it?

Why don't I just download it, you ask? Well, like most people under an ISP monopoly, I currently have a data cap.

Preordered it originally and it was a ton of fun when it came out. Not sure what the discount price is but when I preordered at $25 I didn't feel ripped off. The biggest gripe was balancing in the higher game tiers. There's some cheesing with the perks that can happen, especially in "survive with friends" (when 4 survivors group together and queue up). The game is generally fun and gives a good creep factor to it. As a child of the 80s in all the campy horror glam, I enjoyed the heck out of it. I'm actually looking forward to the Friday the 13th one.
