Dead by Daylight getting a colorblind mode

Color us delighted

Behaviour Interactive has been asked time and time again to include colorblind options in Dead by Daylight, as a lot of the game's visuals and HUD are extremely unfriendly to those dealing with colorblindness. Thankfully that's set to change sometime in the near future.

Behaviour has confirmed that they're working on colorblind mode, but they failed to share any other details on what it will entail. Hopefully we'll get a full look at the mode and what it offers soon.

Behaviour Interactive discusses the process of adding the Twins to Dead by Daylight

Bosom buddies

The latest chapter in Dead by Daylight introduces the Twins, which are a two-in-one killer. You mainly play as Charlotte, but you can use a special ability to take control of Victor as well. Victor is a much smaller character that can jump on survivors and alert Charlotte to their position.

In an interview with Comicbook.com, Behaviour Interactive talked about what it's like implementing a smaller killer as compared to the previous characters.

“...when we were talking about things like, for instance, Leprechaun or Chucky or something like that, having a diminutive killer is something that we've asked ourselves, ‘How should we do this? Would it be fun to be, literally, a meter tall and run in the grass and chase people?’ This came about because we had the bandwidth to try a few crazy things and we hit upon a recipe that was cool.”

Dead by Daylight "A Binding of Kin" Chapter and holiday content launch today, Freddy Krueger makes his way to Switch

Killer content

It's a very big day for Dead by Daylight fans. Today marks the start of a new chapter, the launch of holiday content, and Freddy Krueger finally makes his way to Switch. Check out full details on all of those topics in the press release below!

BehaviourTM Interactive is excited to launch today the newest chapter for its hit asymmetrical horror game Dead by DaylightTM: A Binding of Kin on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Steam, Windows Store, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

This Chapter marks the first time a unique killer is comprised of two characters that can each be controlled individually. This killer is known as The Twins. Born in 17th century France, conjoined twins Charlotte and Victor Deshayes grew in a world that would be cruel and relentless in its pursuit to destroy them. Watching their mother being burned alive was only the beginning: being captured by a cult and living in sewers as pariahs developed their disdain for humanity. Victor, still attached to his sister’s body had died and was rotting away when a thick Fog enveloped them and miraculously, he detached from her and started running towards the unknown. The Entity had summoned them for all eternity.

The new Survivor is Élodie Rakoto. Smart, cunning and defiant, Élodie grew in Paris but her heart remained in her parents’ home country of Madagascar. During a trip to Dyer Island her parents mysteriously disappeared into the Abyss. Élodie would spend the next 14 years diving into the occult; searching for an explanation. Through her valuable research she became of interest to The Black Vale, a group of occult fanatics. As she was trying to escape their hold, she felt herself falling into...the Abyss.

To celebrate the release of this chapter, the Holiday Horror Collection is expanding its offerings with two very rare outfits for the newest Killer and Survivor, including a fun reindeer-themed onesie for Élodie. A legendary set for The Trapper will also be released. Don’t forget to ring in the Holidays with a stocking full of cheer and horror thanks to new and festive cosmetics for Dwight, Ace, Zarina, Claudette and Jake.

Finally, the Dead by Daylight’s Advent Calendar will take place starting today to help bring in the Holiday cheer. Every day until January 2nd, 2021, players will be able to take advantage of in-game gifts including ugly sweaters, Holiday-themed charms and more!
