Dead by Daylight is a survival horror game developed by Behavior Interactive that has been taking the world by storm since its initial release in 2016. It has received numerous updates along with tons of guest characters including Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Pyramid Head from Konami’s Silent Hill series, Stranger Thing’s Demogorgon, and many more. It was previously teased that a Resident Evil character would be coming to the next chapter of Dead by Daylight to celebrate Resident Evil’s 25th anniversary.

The characters, Jill Valentine and Leon Kennedy are the two survivors of Dead By Daylight’s latest chapter. The two survivors have unique perks to set them apart from one another.

The killer is the iconic Nemesis from Resident Evil 3. He has a special tentacle attack that buffs his power and is able to infect survivors, making them weaker and easier to spot. The infection can be nullified by a vaccine that can be found on the map.

When Nemesis is used, zombies will spawn on the map. These NPC characters will assist Nemesis by biting survivors and infecting them, adding an extra layer of strategy in this chapter.

A partnership between this new horror game phenomenon and arguably the most iconic horror game series of all time, Capcom’s Resident Evil is a fitting choice. With the recent releases of Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil Village, it’s more great news for fans of the series.

Which character should you pick in Dead Island 2?

After a brief introductory sequence showing how each of the playable characters, referred to as Slayers in Dead Island 2, end up on the doomed evacuation plane at the start of the game, you are forced to pick who you will play as. If you hadn't played the first game -- and considering it came out over 10 years ago we wouldn't blame you if you hadn't -- then you may not know that your choice of character is more than just cosmetic. Each of the six playable Slayers not only starts off with its own stat distribution from the others but with two ability cards as well. In a narrative sense, almost nothing is different depending on who you pick, so this decision all comes down to choosing the right character for how you prefer to play. Don't let the excitement of bashing in some zombie heads rush your decision and first make sure you understand just how important this choice is in Dead Island 2.
Can you change characters in Dead Island 2?

This is the main reason your character choice is so important. In Dead Island 2, once you choose a Slayer, you're locked in for the duration of the game. If you want to try out a different character, you will need to start the game over from scratch, so unless you're okay with undoing all your progress, or want to do a second playthrough, give this decision a good deal of thought so you don't have any regrets.
