Dead by Daylight x Alien Crossover Officially Revealed
After creating anticipation in the previous week, Behaviour Interactive has now made an official announcement that has thrilled fans worldwide – the iconic sci-fi horror franchise “Alien” is set to make its mark in the realm of the asymmetrical horror game “Dead by Daylight.”
Mark your calendars for August 29, as that’s the date when “Dead by Daylight: Alien” will become available across all gaming platforms. As the excitement builds, players can anticipate a thrilling infusion of the “Alien” universe into the game’s already gripping gameplay. The centerpiece of this new crossover is the introduction of the formidable Xenomorph, a nightmarish creature renowned for its relentless stealth and terror-inducing prowess. Additionally, Ellen Ripley, the resilient heroine from the franchise, will also make her debut as a new survivor. In a captivating twist, her memories will be ingeniously employed to reconstruct the ill-fated spaceship, the Nostromo.
Behaviour Interactive has eagerly highlighted the Xenomorph’s character as “the embodiment of the stealth killer,” showcasing its capability to strike down survivors with its razor-sharp tail. This chilling antagonist’s power, aptly named Runner Mode, empowers it to move on all fours, significantly enhancing its stealth capabilities. Players will find themselves on edge as they navigate this newfound level of intensity and cunning in the game.
Beyond the infusion of fresh characters and an enthralling backdrop, the crossover introduces an innovative gameplay element termed “Control Stations.” This interactive map feature transforms the dynamics of the game by allowing the Xenomorph to navigate the tunnels beneath the control stations, a gameplay strategy that adds depth to the experience. On the survivors’ side, an intriguing twist emerges – they can choose to interact with any of the seven control stations strewn across the map. Their interaction rewards them with a potent tool: the Flame Turret. This resource becomes invaluable as they strive to fend off the relentless Xenomorph.
“Dead by Daylight” has successfully bridged the gap between different horror universes before, with franchises like Saw, Hellraiser, and Ringu making memorable appearances. Now, with “Alien” stepping onto the scene, the game continues its tradition of offering players a uniquely immersive experience that seamlessly blends the best elements of different horror worlds. As anticipation mounts, fans of both the game and the “Alien” franchise are poised for an unforgettable collision of horror, strategy, and survival.
