Supermassive Games, the studio behind Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology, is set to reveal its new single-player Dead by Daylight game at The Game Awards today. The project was first announced earlier this year as a collaborative effort between Supermassive and Behaviour Interactive, letting players experience the horror-filled universe of the game as a single-player story as opposed to its usual asymmetrical multiplayer.
The official X account for Dead by Daylight recently posted a video confirming that it will show the single-player title at The Game Awards, which is set to take place later today (or tonight, depending on your time zone). Story details about the game are still being kept under wraps, though we’ll probably see the full story in the reveal and whether or not it will utilise Supermassive’s trademark decision-based gameplay and branching narratives.
Supermassive Games studio director Steve Goss stated:
“We’re obviously all horror fans here at Supermassive, and massive fans of Dead by Daylight. Now we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Behaviour on a brand-new single-player interactive story game set in the terrifying omniverse of Dead by Daylight.”
Supermassive executive producer Traci Tufte added:
“We’ve been working hard to blend the tension, agency and branching storytelling of a Supermassive game together with Dead by Daylight’s mythology to create an intense narrative experience filled with powerful life or death choices. Our game will be set outside the Entity’s realm and feature the story of a new cast of characters who players will follow for an unprecedented experience beyond the fog.”
“This is a whole new way for horror fans to experience Dead by Daylight, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world,” Goss added.
