Multiplayer survival/slasher title Dead By Daylight has been steadily receiving new content since it officially released, most recently getting its Saw Chapter DLC. The game's developers have now announced their roadmap of content releases for Year 3 of the game.
Behaviour Digital, the team behind Dead By Daylight has been appreciative of fans for making the game as popular as it is. It was announced today that the developers would be adding even more content to the game, including new maps, survivors and, of course, new killers.
“Since launch, Dead by Daylight has come a very long way. We’ve added tons of new content. We brought in 8 new survivors, 8 new killers, 11 new maps set in 8 new locations. We added a bunch of features you had been asking for like ‘survive with friends’ modes, seasonal events, the shrine of secrets and a lot of new languages! We also constantly think of new ways to make the game better and keep you all entertained (remember when hooks never repaired?)...Our team has grown as well. We began the game with 30 developers and are now up to about 75 creative minds finding new ways to hunt you down and hang you from a hook! We want you to know that we are committed to our fans and passionate community who have been with us for two years now. In June 2018 we will begin our third year of service for Dead byDaylight, and this is what we have planned!”
Based on the roadmap, it seems Behaviour Interactive will release one new map, survivor, and killer per season throughout the year and into next spring, for a total of 4 each. It's also interesting to note that the developer said it will provide "better tools to handle toxicity" as part of the new content.
That should be a good thing, considering how negative of an impact toxicity can have on a game's community. Behaviour is not the only developer doing so either, as we reported earlier that multiple gaming companies have come together to combat the issue.
Although the community may not get as much press as those of Fortnite or PUBG, fans of Dead by Daylight are still a vocal bunch and Behaviour Interactive takes their feedback into careful consideration. Not all of the changes that the developer makes are welcome, but the game is always changing.
Dead By Daylight is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
