It looks like the next chapter for Dead By Daylight is almost here and we will be getting yet another "slasher" and survivor from a popular horror franchise. Behaviour has been doing a great job with doing just that for the game and now it looks like they are bringing the SAW franchise into the mix here on January 23rd with the most recent DLC for the game. All kinds of games are going to need to be played in Dead By Daylight as we are going to be getting a few of that franchise's more iconic characters and locations added into play. Although, it may not be exactly what you think at first.
Given that the main "villain" of SAW is not the true slasher type, he is an older man with cancer for those who have not seen the films somehow, it looks like they have opted to go with one of the "henchmen" characters from the film. Fans will notice that The Pig is going to be used here in the game and it looks to be based on the way it was used in the later films with a female under the mask. Still trained by JIGSAW, but not the same person. They will have their own perks and abilities that fall in line with the films and what has been established for Dead By Daylight so it will not just be a capture the survivor to make them try to escape or die thing as in the films.
Also coming with the DLC here we are getting a new Map in way of the Gideon Meat Plant. That would be a setting for the third and fourth films as well as peppered in a little bit in other films. Also, it looks like Detective Tapp is back as the survivor for this Dead By Daylight DLC. For those with foggy memories that would be the main detective from the first film who was played by Danny Glover. I can get behind that as almost all of the other "survivors" in the film franchise have never truly survived or have been part of something more sinister along the way. For those who know the films, none of that is truly vague. For the rest of you, watch the films and then get ready to add this chapter to your Dead By Daylight.
Dead By Daylight — The Saw Chapter
Let’s Play a Game…
The Pig is here to create a whole new version of hell for all Survivors. Mentored by Jigsaw she comes caring Reverse Bear Traps into the Realm of the Entity. So if you’re gonna play, you have to accept that the stakes are high.
The SAW Chapter comes with a New Killer (The Pig), a new Survivor (David Tapp) and a new Map (Gideon Meat Plant).
Out on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 23rd.
Is this the franchise you were hoping for to finally come to Dead By Daylight or were you holding out for a different one? Would you have rather seen JIGSAW directly here or does it make more sense to have The Pig here? Would you have liked to see it truly shake up the way the game is played by putting survivors in weird "games" to escape or will it work for the slasher that it is here?
