There was apparently some big eighth anniversary broadcast today for Dead by Daylight. If you are surprised to find out that Dead by Daylight is now eight years old, you certainly wouldn't be alone.

During the stream, two of the upcoming six planned Chapters for Dead by Daylight were shared. These include chapters for Dungeons & Dragons and another for Castlevania. On top of that, details on the anticipated 2v8 mode were also shared. As a bonus to fans, updates were shared on The Casting of Frank Stone, Project T, and a surprise release of a new game called What the Fog. Project T is an upcoming PvE action-horror shooter. What the Fog is a new co-op roguelite game based on the world of Dead by Daylight and it's priced at just $4.99.

While there are plenty of additional details on the Dead by Daylight website, you can find a general overview for all of today's new content below. Also included below is an embed of several of the new content and projects coming to the Dead by Daylight gaming universe (the DbDGU if you will, although I might need to workshop this a bit).

Dead by Daylight x Dungeons & Dragons
A new tale is about to begin! Dead by Daylight: Dungeons & Dragons was announced as the game’s next major Chapter. Iconic D&D villain Vecna, known in Dead by Daylight as The Lich will impose his deadly will as the new Killer, while a Bard, Aestri Yazar is the new Survivor. The thrilling new Map, Forgotten Ruins takes players to a mysterious dungeon chock-full of easter eggs for fans.

D&D staples such as getting loot, magical items, and rolling dice will also be woven into the gameplay letting players channel their inner adventurer.

Players can try out the new Killer, Survivors, and gameplay features in the Public Test-Build, available now.


2V8 Mode
In a news drop that’s sure to please long-time fans, the 2V8 Game Mode was announced for Dead by Daylight offering a brand-new gameplay experience that promises to shake up The Entity’s Realm. The widely requested mode will see 2 Killers face off against 8 Survivors on a much larger Map.

To ramp up the action, several gameplay adjustments have been made including the replacement of Perks for what essentially amounts to a class system and the addition of Cages instead of Hooks. More information on the 2V8 Game Mode will be revealed in a future livestream this July.

What the Fog, a brand-new game out now
In yet another surprise for fans, a brand-new 2-person co-op roguelite game from the world of Dead by Daylight called What the Fog was announced and released during the livestream. Players take on the role of Dwight, Claudette, or Feng Min and work together to survive a hostile world as they run, jump, and shoot their way through an army of deadly monsters and bosses.

The game is available now and the first 2 million copies can be obtained for FREE by signing in to or creating a Behaviour Account and following the steps shown on the site. What the Fog can also be purchased on Steam for $4.99 USD.


Dead by Daylight Expansion
Eager fans were also treated to updates on the previously announced games from the world of Dead by Daylight.

Still in its early stages of development, the unnamed session-based PvE action-horror shooter now codenamed Project T, is opening its doors to the community to involve them in its creation. Players will be able to join the Insider Program to receive exclusive news, and the chance to participate in playtests and share their ideas and feedback on the game.


A new gameplay trailer for The Casting of Frank Stone was also shared, hinting at the dark, branching narrative that lies before players as the creation of an independent movie unlocks horrors beyond comprehension.


Castlevania’s Gothic Horror Comes to The Fog
The final surprise of the show featured a trailer for the upcoming Castlevania Chapter. Players were treated to a small glimpse of what they can expect when the long-running gaming franchise swoops in to sink its teeth into Dead by Daylight later this year.​
