Fancy seeing a masterpiece of horror history join up with Dead by Daylight’s expansive roster? That’s what is happening in March 2022 as the Ringu franchise arrives.

Behaviour Interactive have teamed up with famed Japanese entertainment editor and publisher Kadokawa to integrate its cult franchise Ringu in the world of the hit horror game of Dead by Daylight.

Ringu introduced images that have long haunted fans, fuelling the nightmares of audiences across the globe and it is this new Chapter which has been inspired by Kōji Suzuki’s novel. The original acclaimed film adaptation will open the door for endless thrills and countless gameplay possibilities as it merges the eerie and melancholic world of the psychological horror masterwork with the twisted fantasy of Dead by Daylight.

“The importance of the Ringu franchise in Japan, and its influence on culture around the world are undeniable. To be given the opportunity to dive into that legendary story as we bring this creation into Dead by Daylight is an immense honor”, says Mathieu Côté, Game Director, Dead by Daylight. “This new Chapter will give our players something intensely dark and troubling, a real heart-pounding experience that adds to the already high intensity of our game.”

Kōji Suzuki’s Ring, originally published in 1991, began the haunting story of a spreading curse and its doomed victims. Fans of that will remember the chilling premise of the psychological horror sensation: a video that, upon viewing, promises death in seven days. In 1998, the novel was adapted into a Japanese feature film of the same name, widely known as Ringu to North American and European audiences. The story quickly became a sensation in other Asian territories and everywhere around the world, instantly adding a new presence into the pantheon of cinematic horror icons.

“We are very excited about the collaboration with Behaviour Interactive and the Dead by Daylight team. We’ll be sending one of our most haunting characters into the Fog to pour down horrors that will rival all the great predecessors”, shared Reiko Imayasu, Producer, Kadokawa Corporation. “Fans should beware of their heart; this deadly newcomer will definitely strike them, and they will tremble with fear whilst they wait.”

The new Dead by Daylight Chapter based on Ringu is coming in March 2022. Watch the trailer below for now, then hold tight for its arrival. More details will follow in the weeks ahead too.

Dead By Daylight is available to play on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and PC.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
