Dead by Daylight fans are in for a treat on 16th June - with Behaviour Interactive announcing it has teamed up with Konami's horror series, Silent Hill. This next paid DLC will add Cheryl (Heather) Mason as a survivor and Pyramid Head as a killer.
There'll also be a new map for all players (based on Midwich Elementary School), a new version of the Dead by Daylight theme by the Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka, and the addition of legendary skins - transforming the appearance of existing survivors. For example, Cheryl transforms into Lisa Garland.
Here's how the collaboration came about, according to game director Mathieu Cote:
We were already connected with some of the tentacles of Konami… They are the official publisher of the physical copy [of Dead by Daylight] in Japan. So we were connected to some of the people already
After a call, Cote said both parties realised this collaboration was the "perfect" crossover. So perfect, in fact, they barely had to change much:
In this case, we didn’t have to change much about how these [Silent Hill] characters act to make them fit well within our universe.
