Dead by Daylight Hellraiser Chapter Begins Next Week

Get Lost, Pinhead!

Dead by Daylight is adding another classic horror icon to its ever-expanding roster of killers. You can add Pinhead from Hellraiser to the list of familiar characters in the game, such as Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Amanda Young, Ghost Face, the Demogorgon, Pyramid Head, and Nemesis, to name a few.

The Hellraiser Chapter is the 21st chapter and 25th overall piece of additional content, but is unlike many of the previous DLC packs. Most chapters add a killer and a survivor. Some stray from this format by only adding killers or only adding survivors. The Hellraiser Chapter only adds Pinhead as a killer.

A recurring character in the Hellraiser series named Kristy Cotton would seem like a good choice for a survivor, as she appears in several of the films and is often the lone survivor. Alas, she will not be part of the Hellraiser chapter.

The short teaser for the upcoming chapter shows the mysterious Lemarchand Configuration puzzle box, which is capable of opening a path to the Cenobite realm where Pinhead is from. The release date for the Hellraiser Chapter is September 7th.

If you are a returning player to Dead by Daylight, now might be a good a time as any to get back into it. In November, the Stranger Things content will be leaving the online store, so you would be wise to grab up those three characters.

Dead by Daylight is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.
