In its latest news update, Behaviour Interactive revealed cross-play and cross-friends would be "coming really soon" to the console versions of its survival horror multiplayer game, Dead By Daylight. This includes support for the Nintendo Switch.
Switch players will have the choice to opt-out of cross-play with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC users, if they prefer. And if there are any issues (for those who opt-in), Behaviour will disable this new feature:
Once Cross-Play is live on all platforms, we will carefully monitor the data to ensure the stability of the game. If it becomes unstable, we will disable cross-play to allow us to work on a fix. Player experience first!!
On top of this, cross-progression is coming to the Steam, Google Stadia, and the Nintendo Switch version of the game this September. It will allow players to share their progression, purchases, and inventory across those three platforms.
We are thrilled to announce that we are preparing the first steps toward Cross-Progression and that it will be available for Steam, Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch in September!
Unfortunately, other platforms are not included in these plans:
As of today, we cannot make Cross-Progression available on other platforms and we have no guarantee that it will happen. However, we know that this is a community wish, and we will keep trying to make it happen.
Will you be returning to Dead by Daylight to survive with friends on other platforms? Have you been wanting to share your progression across platforms? Leave a comment down below.
