Dead by Daylight Board Game Is Coming Later This Year
Dead by Daylight is expanding outside of video games and is getting a board game adaptation. At least, that is the current plan. A Kickstarter campaign for the project will go live on March 29.
The Dead by Daylight board game will have two to four players will take on the roles of Survivors, while one will play the role of the savage Killer. Survivors will attempt to discover and repair generators to escape the Trial Grounds, while the Killer must anticipate their moves to hunt them down and sacrifice them one by one. So, very much inspired by the game it is based on.
The board game includes distinct Survivor and Killer personas, items, perks, interactive props, and the Trial Grounds. Level 99, the board game publisher, wants it to be as accessible as possible. They plan to add a wide variety of play options so groups can play how they see fit.
Dead by Daylight: The Board Game will have two editions available. The standard edition is priced at $49.99 and includes 6 Killers, 7 Survivors, and 2 maps. The collector’s edition is priced at $99.99 and includes 16 Killers, 17 Survivors, and 4 maps. All of the survivors and killers are drawn from the game itself up to March 2021.
D. Brad Talton Jr, the designer behind the game, had this to say:
“As fans of the original video game, we worked hard to capture the tension between the Survivors and the Killer on every turn. The moment when you commit to your move and then have to hold your breath while the Killer makes their play—to me that’s the essence of Dead by Daylight.”
