‘Dead By Daylight: The Halloween Chapter’ DLC Arrives on Consoles

The popular horror-themed video game Dead by Daylight – in which both Michael Myers and Laurie Strode from Halloween were introduced as playable characters in the online version last fall – has recently come home to gaming consoles earlier this year, and now “The Halloween Chapter” DLC is bringing Myers home this Friday.

Starbreeze AB and Behaviour Digital officially announced in July that Dead by Daylight: The Halloween Chapter is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in August, and now that date has been further confirmed for this Friday, Aug. 25.

First released on PC in June 2016, the horror game Dead by Daylight sold more than 1.8 million copies on the digital distribution platform Steam and became an instant favorite with streamers on Twitch and other streaming platforms before it was released for consoles on June 20, 2017.

Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game in which one crazed killer hunts four friends through a terrifying nightmare. Players take on the role of both killer and survivors in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Michael Myers and Laurie Strode of John Carpenter’s 1978 film Halloween joined the Dead by Daylight as playable characters along with a Haddonfield map in October of last year on the online version.

Dead by Daylight: The Halloween Chapter DLC will be released for Playstation 4 and Xbox One this Friday, August 25.
