Freddy Krueger Joining Dead by Daylight

Multiplayer survival horror is one of the great genres in gaming. First built on the back of the Resident Evil’s and Silent Hill’s of the world, survival horror now seems to be getting help from some of the most famous cinematic slashers of all time. Last year we got Gun Media’s ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’, and this year we got an addition to the popular ‘Dead by Daylight’ game. This addition will take you to Elm Street where you will do battle with the Springwood Slasher himself, Freddy Krueger. Check out of the trailer for ‘Dead by Daylight: A Nightmare on Elm Street’ DLC below:

It’s a quick glimpse to be sure, and Freddy looks noticeably more like Jackie Earl Haley’s version than the iconic Robert England portrayal, but I can’t help but be excited at the possibilities that come with trying to outrun Freddy. I mean, as long as as I can be Nancy Thompson or Kristen Parker and not Jesse Walsh.

“Dead by Daylight: A Nightmare on Elm Street’ was released on October 26th, 2017. It is currently available on Stream. The original game and the previously released Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre DLC’s are available Xbox One & Playstation 4. It was developed by Behavior Interactive and published by Starbreeze Studios. The DLC can be purchased for $6.99 from the Steam store.
