The latest 4vs1 multiplayer horror title is now with us – here’s hoping that Dead by Daylight fares a bit better than recent scarebringers!

Available right now for Xbox One gamers in the US, Dead by Daylight sees one player take control of the Killer, whilst the others drop in as Survivors. What happens from there on out is pretty much self explanatory – you’ll either need to hunt, or be hunted.

With the Survivors taking in the action via a third person view, and the Killer in first person mode, the odds are most definitely stacked in the favour of those trying to escape. But you know that sounds easier than it ever will be, especially seeing as the environments you will find yourself in will change every single time.

The Xbox Games Store will happily sort those North American gamers out with a $29.99 download. Those of us elsewhere – like here in the UK – will need to wait until Friday 23rd June after which £23.99 will be able to sort us out.

Game Description:

Death Is Not an Escape. Dead by Daylight is a 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.

These 4v1 games are really not for me. I tried Evolve and found that a really disappointing experience, which has put me off. Also the online only games tend to lose the players quickly and unless you play 24/7 it is a really bad experience for the new players.

nah not really, I’ve had it for a while on pc. only played around 4 hrs of it and really starting to get into it now and it’s easy to win being the serial killer! it’s nothing like evolved, it’s fairly small maps and it isn’t hard to hunt them down. evolved took forever to catch the beast since the maps were so big. This game is great and can be really intense. Just think if outlast had multiplayer this is it.
