Stranger Things superfans have almost certainly cruised through Season Three of the Netflix show given that it launched on July 4. But if that’s not enough Hawkins content for your liking, the horror video game series Dead By Daylight has you covered later this fall.
The multiplayer horror game is pretty self explanatory: try to survive against a deadly enemy in the game’s various chapters. There are already a dozen available from publisher Behavior, but on Monday they announced that Stranger Things is coming to the Dead By Daylight universe.
The update features two new survivors with excellent hair: Steve Harrington and Nancy Wheeler. And the new place to survive in is no other than the Underground Complex located below the Hawkins National Laboratory, where an inter-dimensional rift has released dozens of creatures before (spoiler alert, perhaps) it’s sealed off. You know, eventually.
Apparently that didn’t happen in time to stop a demogorgon from getting out once more. According to a release from Behaviour, The Entity is coming to Hawkins.
The Chapter introduces a new Killer and two new Survivors to the realm of The Entity: the monstrous, otherworldly Demogorgon is the new untamable Killer. Against it stands not one, but two, new Survivors: Nancy Wheeler, a tough aspiring journalist, and Steve Harrington, a former high school jock with a knack for finding trouble.
This isn’t the first time you can battle it out with the demogorgon from the Stranger Things universe — there’s a Stranger Things-themed Dungeons and Dragons edition that features a specific campaign from the series the creature is based on — but it certainly is the most interactive. And a video game demogorgon is just as terrifying as it is in Netflix CGI.
Behaviour teased a video stream explaining more about the Stranger Things chapter on August 22, and a full release of the chapter is coming in September, plenty of time to work your way through the other chapters if you need to catch up.
