Joab Gilroy (GameSpot)

Dead by Daylight has evolved into an unrivalled asymmetrical competitive multiplayer game, and one of the best horror games around.

The tension is high in every match, with jump scares and thrilling chases peppering each encounter with the killer.

It lacks polish, but Dead by Daylight is a genuinely tense ode to 80s slasher movies.

Game Info

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

Dead by Daylight is an upcoming multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed. Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey. The Survivors’ goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer – something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.
