In the asymmetric multiplayer horror game Dead by Daylight, the killers tend to get most of the spotlight. This isn't surprising with horror icons like Halloween's Michael Myers and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger appearing on the list of Dead by Daylight killers, but now the survivors are getting a high profile guest star as well. It was confirmed a couple of days ago that Dead by Daylight was getting Ash vs. Evil Dead DLC, and now we know when that's coming.
The Dead by Daylight Ash vs. Evil Dead DLC is releasing for all platforms on April 2. Unlike past Dead by Daylight DLC, the Ash vs. Evil Dead DLC won't be adding any new killers to the game, and it won't have a new map either. That may be disappointing news for those hoping to visit the infamous Evil Dead cabin, but at least players will still get to play as Ash.
Plus, it's not like there won't be more maps and Dead by Daylight killers at some point in the future. In fact, Behaviour Interactive just recently added The Plague killer on March 19, and the studio has at least three more killers in the pipeline for the rest of the year. The next Dead by Daylight killer is expected to come to the game in June, with the other two set to be released in September and December of 2019.
Who these killers are is anyone's guess. As the Ash vs. Evil Dead DLC illustrates, the next Dead by Daylight DLC could be based on basically any horror franchise. Perhaps Chucky of Child's Play fame will make an appearance as a way to promote the upcoming reboot, or maybe one of the ghosts from The Conjuring universe will show up instead. Alternatively, the next three DLC killers for Dead by Daylight could all be original creations dreamed up by Behaviour Interactive.
More information on new Dead by Daylight killers should come to light in the coming months. In the meantime, fans can look forward to playing as Ash Williams in the upcoming Ash vs. Evil Dead DLC on April 2.
Dead by Daylight is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version is currently in development.
