Dead by Daylight Mobile brings 4v1 asymmetrical horror to iOS, Android

Dead by Daylight, the 4-on-1 asymmetrical horror game that was first released for the PC in 2016, has arrived to mobile devices as a free-to-play title.

Dead by Daylight Mobile is now available for iOS and Android, following the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release in 2017 and the Nintendo Switch launch last year. According to developer Behaviour Interactive, it achieved the pre-registration goal of 1 million sign-ups, unlocking rewards for all players who will log in or create an account for the mobile game.

In Dead by Daylight, four players take on the role of survivors who must work together to repair generators scattered across the map in order to escape through the exit gates. However, they must do so while avoiding the killer, controlled by a fifth player, who has access to unique abilities depending on the character that they choose.

The mobile version of the horror game will soon feature the same line-up of killers and survivors that are available on the PC and consoles. The roster of killers for Dead by Daylight Mobile currently includes seven characters, including The Pig from Saw and Michael Myers from Halloween. Also available are The Demogorgon as a killer and Steve and Nancy as survivors, all from Stranger Things, though they will need to be unlocked first from the in-game store.

Dead by Daylight Mobile is optimized for smartphones, with scaled-back graphics for smoother gameplay and touch-sensitive controls. The game offers in-app purchases for cosmetic items, and keeps the progression system that allows players to unlock new characters as well as upgrades, faster for those who perform better as the killer or survivors.

To celebrate the launch of Dead by Daylight Mobile, Behaviour Interactive launched the Bloodhunt+ event, which offers double character experience and Bloodpoints in the Trials mode, so that players will get a head start in upgrading their characters and unlocking new perks.

For iPhone owners, Dead by Daylight Mobile requires iOS 11 or above and either the first generation iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, or later. Meanwhile, for Android smartphone owners, the requirement is Android 7.0 Nougat or above, and the equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S7 or later.

Apple forgot to mention one important detail about iOS 16 at its annual WWDC conference yesterday: iPhone users will be able to play games with their Nintendo Switch Pro and Joy-Con controllers.

iOS 16 won't be released to everyone's iPhones until fall, but it is currently out as a developer preview, giving devs ample opportunities to test out and discover some of the new operating system's quirks and exploits. Riley Testut, the developer behind the Delta emulator and AltStore, shared his discovery of iOS 16 natively supporting the Nintendo Switch Pro and Joy-Con controllers, although they show up as a single device. He reported that "they work perfectly with Delta," which emulates games from SNES, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.

Like a good jump scare, Evil Dead: The Game came out of nowhere. The multiplayer game quietly launched on May 13 (a Friday, of course) with no prerelease reviews and little fanfare. The quiet hype cycle may have worked in its favor, as the game has turned out to be a bit of a pleasant (and gory) surprise.
