Dead By Daylight Coming To Next-Gen Consoles With Major Visual Upgrade

1 post in this topic

Dead by Daylight is set for a major graphical upgrade to release with next-gen consoles this holiday season. Originally released back in 2016, Dead by Daylight has had consistent updates and developer support since the beginning. There are currently 26 available DLC packs for the game, with a mix of free and paid content.

In the last decade, there was a wave of games focused on asymmetric multiplayer gameplay. Plenty of these attempts flopped, including highly anticipated games like Evolve, often because developers had trouble balancing the intentionally uneven gameplay properly. Dead by Daylight is one of the few games from that fad that is still kicking, and it's because it has maintained an ever-shifting but balanced gameplay meta. Its developer, Behaviour Interactive, has also done an outstanding job keeping the game relevant by adding some of pop culture's favorite villains, such as Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger.

According to an official press release, Behaviour Interactive is going to release a massive graphics overhaul for Dead by Daylight alongside the next-gen console version of the game. The update will be applied to all platforms, allowing the game to run at 60fps and at 4k resolution. This and future updates will lead to an eventual remastered version. Also exciting is that players who already own a copy of Dead by Daylight and buy a next-gen console will automatically have it for free on that console, while keeping all of their progression.

Some of the new visuals will be available to players much sooner. After next week's patch, many common items like lockers and generators, as well as two maps, will receive their new looks. Behaviour Interactive has announced other changes alongside the visual overhaul. It was announced earlier this summer that Dead by Daylight will support cross-play and cross-friends between multiple platforms. Now it is also being announced that there will be cross-progression between Stadia, Steam, and Switch for players who game in more than one place. Game director Mathieu Côté said, "The game you know and love is stepping into the future... This is ambitious, and we’re ready."

It is always good to see a game that's already successful and fun continue to get the support it needs from its developers. Too many times, patches end and all support disappears too quickly after a game's release. While Dead by Daylight has been the best iteration of one killer against multiple survivors gameplay, it would not have been nearly as successful without Behaviour Interactive's consistent care and attention.

Dead by Daylight is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC.
