Last month, Dead by Daylight announced Stranger Things DLC, bringing the mega popular Netflix series to the asymmetric multiplayer horror game. For Dead by Daylight fans excited to jump into some Stranger Things-themed content, the wait is almost over. The Dead by Daylight Stranger Things DLC will be available on this coming Tuesday, September 17.
As far as Dead by Daylight DLC goes, the Stranger Things DLC is quite substantial. It gives players two new survivors to play as in the form of Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington, two of the more popular characters from the show, and it adds a new killer as well. As one may have guessed, The Demogorgon monster from the Upside Down will be the featured killer in the Dead by Daylight Stranger Things DLC.
Besides new playable characters, the Dead by Daylight Stranger Things DLC also adds a new stage. Once they pick up the new DLC, fans will be able to explore the Hawkins National Laboratory: The Underground Complex, which is where a number of inhumane experiments are conducted in the show. The facility stands as one of the more infamous locations from the TV show, and is the scene of quite a bit of danger in the first couple seasons of the Netflix series.
The Dead by Daylight Stranger Things DLC is just one more thing for players to look forward to when it comes to the asymmetric multiplayer horror game. Dead by Daylight is also getting dedicated servers with the Stranger Things update, which should result in much more stability for online matches.
Support for Dead by Daylight doesn't appear to be slowing down in the slightest. Looking ahead, we know that Dead by Daylight is coming to Switch (on September 24) and mobile devices. Fans can expect Behaviour Interactive to keep releasing new DLC for the game as well, which will include even more survivors, stages, and playable killers.
In the meantime, Stranger Things fans have more video game projects based on the show to look forward to. One of the most notable is the Stranger Things VR game that's in development for PlayStation VR, but we haven't heard much about that project since its initial announcement. Hopefully more information comes sooner rather than later.
Dead by Daylight is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Switch release date on September 24. The game is also in development for iOS and Android mobile devices.
