Developer Behaviour Interactive has announced a second Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil crossover. This will be an entirely new chapter of content with at least one Resi hero and villain pair in the pipeline, and with its codename “Project W” giving us the biggest hint of who they could be.
Outside of our sneaking suspicions, we know very little about the upcoming crossover. However, it’s worth noting leaked information from earlier this year suggesting that series’ antagonist, Albert Wesker, will make his debut alongside fan favourite heroines, Rebecca Chambers and Ada Wong. If true, these Resident Evil characters will join Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Nemesis.
Wesker seems a likely choice if the name “Project W” wasn’t already a dead giveaway. Resident Evil buffs will know this as a reference to Wesker’s menacing plan to create a race of superhumans.
During the DBD 6th anniversary stream it’s been confirmed that 2 new maps will be added to the game over the next year. We’re hoping one of these will be wrapped up in the Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil crossover – who wouldn’t want to chase Survivors around Spencer Mansion?
Until then, Behaviour Interactive is focusing on chapter 24 – Roots of Dread. This will feature one new Survivor, Haddie Kaur; one new Killer, The Dredge; and one new map, The Garden of Joy. Soon going live on the test server, this upcoming content drop will land next month on June 7, 2022.
Another, less expected, crossover sees DBD collide with Attack on Titan. Sadly, there’s no new AoT-themed chapter though it has been confirmed that 10 outfits based on the popular manga and anime are headed to the in-game store.
Oh, did we mention there’s Dead By Daylight dating sim too?
We recently re-reviewed Dead By Daylight for 2020, bumping up its original score:
Dead By Daylight has evolved into somewhat of a phenomenon, proving that the often maligned games-as-a-service model produces more than just cookie cutter loot shooters. It’s still an acquired taste and a bit rough around the edges though stands out as one of the most unique ongoing multiplayer games of the generation.
Those who currently own a copy of Dead By Daylight on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can upgrade for free on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S respectively, carrying over their progress – here’s how.
