Dead By Daylight — Tome 11: DEVOTION
Facing relentless pursuit, Charlotte and Victor Deshayes dream of refuge beyond the sea. David King faces an emotional dilemma that neither fisticuffs nor endless pints can solve. As a mysterious group approaches his tower, The Observer receives a bleak reminder that every story has an ending.
Tome 11: DEVOTION includes Memories from:
Witness the Auris, a device capable of peering into the memories of those who have entered the Fog. Through it, the mysterious Observer grants players access to a new series of challenges to complete, designed to help piece together these memories as well as his role within the Entity’s Realm.
Dead By Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game where one player takes on the role of a brutal Killer and the other four play as Survivors. As a Killer, your goal is to sacrifice as many Survivors as possible. As a Survivor, your goal is to escape and avoid being caught and killed.
Since his introduction in Dead By Daylight, Survivor David King quickly became a fan-favourite. Currently occupying a comfortable top ten position as one of the realm’s most-played Survivor, David is a hot-tempered ruffian with a penchant for a good scrap, whose time as a debt collector brought pain both internal and external. While a fragment of his pre-Fog life was previously revealed, there remained much to uncover. Throughout DEVOTION, fans will discover, that part of his personal struggles revolve around accepting his own identity and sexuality. David’s memories will take players in a pub, where a conversation about romantic relationships leads him to speak more about his personal life, including a past boyfriend.
Bringing inclusivity and representation to life in a meaningful way within Dead By Daylight’s storytelling has been a focus for the development team over the last few years. Creating content devoid of negative tropes, versus simply checking a box was the creators’ priority. To achieve this, the team collaborated with GaymerX, a consulting organization dedicated to providing best practices for the integration of LGBTQIA2+ themes into established games. The non-profit precisely offered support around in-game content and how to approach diversity stories without falling into harmful representation.
