Valve is celebrating Halloween by offering the chance to play Dead by
for the next two days (thanks SteamDB
). Here's a refresher on the asymmetrical multiplayer horror
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
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.
