The 26th chapter is on the way to Dead By Daylight and with it will come the usual Killer and Survivor characters we have all grown to know will be coming. This time, though, we are seeing another batch of unique characters getting added to the game instead of the licensed ones. I rather prefer seeing Behaviour going down these paths when it comes to the DLC we are getting for Dead By Daylight. Even if this time we are getting a massive Knight and basic Scholar types added into the mix. At first, they may not sound all too epic, but that is where the rest of things will start to flood in here.
In the following cinematic trailer we have for this Dead By Daylight DLC, we get to see a massive Knight entering the field not only a single killer but a commander of sorts too. That is, The Knight will have control over the assisting AI bot's patrolling paths while being able to summon them into action. A rather brutal team-up on their end that our survivor Vittorio Toscano will have to learn to work against with the other survivors in the mix too. How that will all go down in Dead By Daylight is still a bit of a mystery, but there does sound like he will have some various other arcane portions to the character to help with the survival. All for those that are ready to add on more this coming November 22nd.
Dead By Daylight — Forged In Fog
The 26th Dead By Daylight Chapter, Forged In Fog, heads to a distant era. Players will have the chance to wreak havoc with a powerful new Killer: The Knight, or mount their next escape with new Survivor Vittorio Toscano, a scholar in search of elusive wisdom. This Chapter also includes a new Map, The Shattered Square, a ravaged village that fell to The Knight and his Guards.
The Knight is a calculating commander and formidable fighter, capable of cutting down anyone in his way. From a young age, The Knight learned to wield weapons and gained the undying allegiance of three loyal Guards: The Carnifex, The Assassin, and The Jailer. Earning renown and notoriety for his martial exploits, he ascended to knighthood and set his sights on a dark campaign for dominion.
The Knight’s Power, Guardia Compagnia, allows players to create a Patrol Path and summon an AI-controlled Guard, leaving a Standard Flag in position. Once summoned, that Guard can survey and patrol, hunt and chase Survivors, or damage Pallets and Generators. When a Survivor is spotted, the Guard will chase his prey for a finite amount of time or disappear once his target is wounded. The Survivor can outsmart a Guard by staying alive until the Hunt Timer ends, unhooking a fellow Survivor, or catching the Standard Flag when activated.
Each Guard has their own special talent – but only one can be used at a time. Survivors will have to be extra careful about the whereabouts of both The Knight and his allies. Adaptive survival – or slaying - strategies are crucial.
Keeper of Arcane Secrets
Born into lordship, Vittorio Toscano is a scholar in search of ancient secrets and obscurities. He has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, driven by a relentless quest to bring peace, harmony, and order to the world. After many expeditions, Vittorio encountered The Knight. While their relationship was initially mutually beneficial, things changed once The Knight revealed his true intentions…
Vittorio’s appearance bears marks of suffering and hard-earned wisdom. His body is covered in strange symbols that glow in a mysterious turquoise light, as if imbued with arcane energy. The mysteries of their origin – and their meaning – will be revealed in time…
Forged In Fog is available on November 22nd, 2022, on Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, and Nintendo Switch.
