The asymmetric horror video game phenomenon Dead by Daylight has officially adopted cross-play functionality for all of its major platforms.
In a press release from developer Behaviour Interactive, the game will feature two primary updates for this next step in its gory multiplayer grandeur. Cross-Play will now allow players from PC and console to finally come together and enjoy Dead by Daylight. To further extend the online upgrade for the players, Behaviour Interactive will bring forth a Cross-Friends system. This will give players a game-based friends list that allows them to add and play with their comrades across any gaming platform.
As of today, cross-platform play with cross-friends support is now available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to go up against those on PC.
The inception of the cross-play feature has been heavily requested from the community, so players are rightfully excited to see these functions come into play. The online update comes after the success with the Steam and Windows Store and their implementation with cross-play, along with a year of data analysis and research before bringing the plans to fruition.
While there is no word on the mobile ports having cross-play at the moment, some news is bound to come up, for Behaviour Interactive usually conduct updates regularly.
Dead by Daylight was originally released back in 2016 for the PC, with console and mobile ports coming soon afterward. Set within a foggy atmosphere where a strange entity breathes and strives for blood, four survivors must dodge and repair their way to freedom by escaping a vicious killer who serves the entity through human sacrifice. The game is well-known for borrowing licensed characters from popular film and television franchises. These include A Nightmare on Elm Street, Silent Hill, Saw, Halloween, and a few more that have come along the way. The game has garnered a lot of love from horror fans since its debut, and it has attracted more than 25 million players throughout the globe.
