Popular multiplayer horror game Dead By Daylight could be getting Freddy Krueger DLC. Data mined information by the games Steam community has revealed that the ‘Next Killer’ would be none other than the master of nightmares himself, Freddy Krueger. If that wasn’t enough to convince you the new character’s weapon would be the ‘ClawedGlove’ and the character would also have the ability ‘Dreammaster Survivor’.
This would all fall in line with some of the games previous DLC that has included Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Michael Myers from Halloween. All of these classic horror icons being added to the game is quite ironic considering Dead By Daylight’s main competition is none other than Friday The 13th The Game. It would be a little strange to have all of these iconic horror villains and not have Jason Vorhees.
The Freddy Krueger announcement is still not official as the Dead By Daylight developer, Behaviour Interactive has still not confirmed nor denied the news. This certainly is interesting and does beg the question just how far they will go with the horror icons DLC. Will we see a Chucky DLC or even a Pinhead DLC?
Some have speculated if the addition of iconic horror villains was to steal some steam from the Friday the 13th game. Either way, it seems to be working as Dead by Daylight has managed to keep a pretty consistent player base since its release. Friday the 13th The Game has been on a steady decline even after its patches and free DLC additions.
Dead by Daylight has been out on PC for over a year now, only recently coming out for consoles in June. Since the games release it has been averaging about 14,000 players daily and has become quite the success for the 4 v 1 multiplayer genre.
