Dead By Daylight developer Behavior Interactive has shared a teaser of an upcoming DLC. Ghost Face, the iconic serial killer from the Scream franchise, is headed to the 4v1 asymmetric horror survival game on June 18th. The new playable character was officially revealed via a disturbingly realistic animated short, have a look:
Although this is Ghost Face’s first official tease, fans already knew about the killer thanks to an accident by the developers. Earlier this month, a Behavior developer mistakenly pushed their own developer build to Xbox One instead of the scheduled Mid-Chapter update. This version of the game contained a whole bunch of new models and cosmetics, not to mention Ghost Face himself.
Behavior Interactive quickly fixed the issue, but not before players nabbed screenshots and shared them with the Dead By Daylight subreddit. The killer’s official reveal will take place tomorrow May 31st. If you can’t wait, however, Reddit users have compiled a list detailing some of the new perks.
This perk gives the player a token every time the obsession is hooked. With every token, the killer’s terror radius whilst in chase is decreased by 4 meters. This ability comes into effect at 2 tokens up to a maximum of 4 tokens. Whenever a survivor rescues another from the hook, they become the new obsession. If the obsession is killed or sacrificed, the killer loses all of their tokens.
Shrouded Hunt & Stalk
The Shrouded Hunt perk is twofold: Hunt removes the killer’s terror radius and Stalk allows them to ‘stalk’ a survivor and inflict the ‘exposed’ status on them for a limited time. This mechanic is similar to Micheal Myers’, where exposed survivors will go down in one attack regardless if they’re injured or not.
Keep in mind that this information comes from leaks, and as a result, is subject to change. The new killer will be available to purchase June 18th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
