Behaviour Interactive has announced that Dead by Daylight will arrive on Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 later this year.
The news was detailed in another update from the team, revealing that the game would receive a massive visual upgrade across all platforms.
Dubbed as “The Realm Beyond”, the process will see frequent content drops deployed to the game alongside these upgrades, with previously announced updates to continue as scheduled, including the implementation of cross-play and cross-friends.
“Players can anticipate even more environmental elements in the Killing Grounds, resulting in more immersive maps. Dead by Daylight characters will have more realistic modelling and texturing, related to and informed by each character’s lore. Also, we’ll be making improvements to the lighting and VFX for a more engrossing experience,” said Product Manager Joris Four.
Lead Level Artist Stephanie Hellin also chimed in on the update, detailing how it’ll make for a more immersive experience. “These updates aren’t just about making the game more visually impressive, they’re also about making you feel like you’re truly running for your life from a blood-thirsty Killer or chasing down a group of pesky, elusive Survivors. These changes aim to make Dead by Daylight more terrifying and intense than ever before”
Behaviour Interactive will detail what we can expect in the first update as they come closer to release. They’ve said September 8th marks the beginning of a new era, so we expect to hear more then.
