We had the exciting teaser released just a few days back that confirmed the SAW universe would be making its way to the asymmetrical slasher Dead by Daylight, but as of today, players can take on the latest thrilling test of survival as The Saw Chapter has now arrived.
The latest content will see The Pig, the sadistic assitant to the Jigsaw Killer arrive in Dead by Daylight to teach players the true meaning of what it takes to survive.
Joining The Pig in the latest content is devoted detective David Tapp – whilst The Pig believes everyone must fight for their survival, David believes everyone should be free to live their lives without the threat of death looking them in the face from a devious trap.
Both new characters come with a host of unique abilities that can be used within the game.
The Pig comes with the power of Jigsaw’s Baptism, which can be used to assume a crouching position. He also comes with no Terror Radius, meaning players won’t know when The Pig is close by and holding the attack interaction can allow the killer to dash into an ambush attack on unsuspecting victims.
The Pig also starts each trial with four Reverse Bear Traps as seen in the original SAW movie. Reverse Bear Traps are placed onto dying survivors and will automatically sacrifice the survivor when triggered. Those who venture beyond the Exit Gates will find their Bear Trap activated instantly and a timer will also begin to countdown once a generator is completed with the trap being triggered once the timer expires. To escape, survivors must search for Jigsaw Boxes around the map and find the correct key to get the trap off their head.
The perks that come with The Pig include Hangman’s Trick, Surveillance and Make Your Choice.
Those wanting to head in as survivor David Tapp however will find themselves in the shoes of the obsessed detective with Tencaity, Detectives Hunch and Stake Out perks aiding in your battle for survival.
The final new addition delivered with the SAW DLC is the Gideon Meat Plant, the popular location from SAW III and IV, that also had appearances in SAW V, VI and 3D. This large factory building is the perfect location to provoke fear into survivors but can equally be used to hide amongst the dead animals that are skewered on meat hooks.
The Saw Chapter DLC is the latest piece of content to arrive in Dead by Daylight, and those wanting to get in on the newest chapter can do so now for the price of £6.39. The Microsoft Store will sort you out.
It is worth noting, that whilst only those who purchase the DLC will be able to play as the new characters, you will still find the Gideon Meat Plant Map available to play in public games as well as running into other using The Pig even if you don’t own the content.
So, there we have it, everything you can expect to find in the latest DLC arriving in Dead by Daylight. Will you be heading back in to one of 2017’s best multiplayer titles with the latest DLC? Let us know in the comments below or via one of our usual social channels.
The Saw™ Chapter is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight. Life is the most precious thing we have. A gift we are given, but a gift some squander. We need to be alive and not just exist. This is where The Pig steps in – a teacher that provides those selected with an opportunity to appreciate life yet again. To fight for our own survival, or simply let go and die. David Tapp thinks otherwise. He believes that everyone is free to live their own life, without the threat of death in the shape of a trap. A seasoned detective that seeks The Pig – a search that brings him to the Gideon Meat Plant.
