The most recent Nintendo Direct has come and gone, bringing with it announcements for new games on the way such as Super Mario Maker 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake for the Switch. Also among the headlines of the Big N's latest live stream presser was one for Behaviour Interactive's asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror game, Dead by Daylight, as it will be arriving on the Switch later this year.
According to the announcement, Dead by Daylight for the Nintendo Switch is set to be a brand new edition that will launch in the fall of 2019 and include content such as Killers, Survivors, Maps, Chapters, and Cosmetics. Players should expect for there to be a digital and retail version, and in order to play the game once it officially hits store shelves, one will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access the title's contents.
We are happy to announce that Dead by Daylight is coming to Switch later this year! #DeadbyDaylight #NintendoSwitch— Dead by Daylight (@DeadByBHVR) February 13, 2019

Dead by Daylight has received a bountiful amount of post-launch support since it came out on PC back in June 2016 and on PS4 and Xbox One in June 2017, with the survival horror game's most recently released wares being its Chapter 10 content. Calling it "Darkness Among Us", players are given the chance to take on the role of the Legion Killer, play as the Survivor Jeff Johansen, and play through the map called Mount Ormond Resort, which resides in Ormond, Canada.
As of now, it's currently unclear if the Nintendo Switch version of Dead by Daylight will receive exclusive content, or which characters–be they Killers or Survivors–will be included in the base version of the title for the hybrid mobile console. With this being the case, we will simply have to wait and see what all Behaviour Interactive will be cooking up for the Nintendo Switch port of Dead by Daylight when it drops later this year for the Big N's system.
Dead by Daylight is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and will launch at some point in fall 2019 for Nintendo Switch.
