Stranger Things is a brand-new Chapter for Dead by Daylight, which includes a new Map. Purchasing the Stranger Things DLC will unlock its new Killer and two new Survivors.
It was the early 1980s, a time of cold war experiments and naive fascination, a time of stranger things. In the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, covert experiments were being conducted.
When an inter-dimensional gate was accidentally opened at the Hawkins National Laboratory, an army of creatures with long, curved claws and gaping faces that bloom like horrific flowers was unleashed. These creatures were labelled "Demogorgons" by a group of local kids who encountered them.
Nancy Wheeler's knack for investigative journalism first emerged when she brought down a secret government organisation in Hawkins following the disappearance of her closest friend, Barb. Her being fired from the Hawkins Post during the summer of 1985 has not dissuaded Nancy from chasing leads...
Formerly a popular jock, Steve Harrington, is struggling to find his place in Hawkins now that high school is over, and his old friends moved away to college. Since then, he's spent his time scooping ice cream at the mall, flirting with girls, and cracking secret Russian codes. With the help of his friends Dustin and Robin, Steve is carving out a new identity for himself and learning what true friendship really means. It's this newfound loyalty to his friends that compels Steve to come to the aid of his ex-girlfriend, Nancy when he suspects she might be in terrible danger...
Killer: The Demogorgon
- Main article: The Demogorgon
A blooming mouth full of needle-like teeth for a face, large, curved, razor-sharp claws, and powerful legs to pounce on victims, make The Demogorgon a frightening monster to face in any dimension. It is a nightmare of unrestrained, feral rage as it hunts down its prey and rips it to pieces, devouring every last morsel of flesh and gore, leaving nothing for scavengers. The creature is untouched by any sense of compassion or restraint. Looming over its victim, it shows no doubt or mercy, just the pure instinct of its insatiable blood lust as it delivers the deathblow. A perfect hunter, The Demogorgon is a macabre testament to the horrors lurking in the Upside Down and why it was choice pickings for The Entity.
Killer Power - The Demogorgon: Of the Abyss
An unknown and otherworldly power surged through its body. Suddenly the ground ripped open, swallowing The Demogorgon whole.
Of the Abyss:
Press and hold the Power button to fully charge and activate Of the Abyss. All Survivors within a close proximity to a placed portal will be indicated by Killer Instinct.
Special Attack: Shred
Press the Attack button while charging or holding Of the Abyss to dive forwards and unleash a vicious slash.
Special Ability: Portals
Press the Active Ability button to open a portal on the ground in front of you. While standing on a placed portal with a different portal highlighted, press the Active Ability button again to travel through the Upside Down to arrive at the targeted portal.
Your eerie presence charges the air and interferes with technology.
Putting a Survivor into the Dying State with a Basic Attack instantly causes all Generators within a radius of 32 metres to explode and begin regressing.
Surge can only be triggered once every 60/50/40 seconds.
"The creature appears to have some unknown influence over electricity and nearby electronics." — Hawkins National Laboratory
Your ties to the otherworldly manifest when your prey attempts to get away.
"The specimen seems to be able to affect the state of nearby objects, as if they existed in some other form within a dimension alternate to our own." — Hawkins National Laboratory
Your distressing presence drains and weakens your prey.
Any existing Exhaustion timers are paused while the Survivor is repairing a Generator.
"The specimen's apparent telepathic ability can evoke feelings of dread and fatigue in nearby individuals." — Hawkins National Laboratory
Survivor: Nancy Wheeler
- Main article: Nancy Wheeler
The Aspiring Journalist
Studious and rebellious, Nancy Wheeler is a stubborn investigator with an instinct for a good story. When her closest friend, Barb went missing, she did everything she could to unravel the truth and secure justice. A brilliant journalist, she chases stories and follows leads despite the inequality and chauvinism she encounters at the workplace. Pursuing a lead one evening, she fearlessly approaches the Hawkins National Laboratory before suddenly losing consciousness. A moment later she awakens in a strange misty realm with the sound of a familiar roar echoing through the air.
You seek justice and uncover the truth no matter what obstacle stands in your way.
The Aura of the Generator you are currently repairing is revealed to all other Survivors located within 32 metres.
If the Killer downs a Survivor while you are repairing a Generator , you see the Auras of all other Survivors for 8/9/10 seconds.
"Let's burn that lab to the ground." — Nancy Wheeler
When you have a goal in mind, there's no turning back; better to ask forgiveness than permission. You can see your own Scratch Marks at all times and walk 10/15/20 % faster when uninjured.
"I wanna finish what we started. I want to kill it." — Nancy Wheeler
You look inwards and trust your instincts when you feel lost and alone.
Each time you cleanse a Totem , Inner Strength activates.
Inner Strength does not activate if you are afflicted by the Broken Status Effect.
"All this time I've been trying so hard to pretend like everything's fine, but it's not." — Nancy Wheeler
Survivor: Steve Harrington
- Main article: Steve Harrington
The Former Jock
Popular and arrogant, yet compassionate, Steve Harrington is an unlikely mentor and leader. He often acts as a surrogate big brother to a younger boy named Dustin. He even helped him find his slimy inter-dimensional pet Demogorgon, D'Artagnan. His reputation as a protector grew and he soon became a sort of "babysitter" for a group of kids in Hawkins with a knack for messing around with strange and dangerous things. His courage is unmatched so that he was even able to fend off a Demogorgon when it threatened his friends. One evening he received a call for assistance from his friend Nancy Wheeler. He drove all the way to the Hawkins National Laboratory to see if she was okay. He searched the area but only found her notebook. Before he realised what was happening the ground opened up and a swirl of black mist filled his eyes. When he awakened he was in a strange place that seemed familiar but unfamiliar at the same time.
While you have a reputation for being self-centred, you risk it all to help those in need.
Both you and the Killer see each other's Aura for 4 seconds.
"I promised to keep you shitheads safe, and that's exactly what I plan on doing." — Steve Harrington
Life has taught you the importance of friendship which has given you strength.
While you are on the Hook in the Struggle Phase, Camaraderie activates.
If another Survivor is within 16 metres of your Hook while Camaraderie is activated, the Struggle Phase timer is paused for 26/30/34 seconds.
"So, remember once you get in there... pretend like you don't care. There you go, you're learning my friend. You're learning." — Steve Harrington
You have learnt to avoid awkward situations with parents. Part of you still thinks your best option is to run away and hope things will take care of themselves.
When you have healed other Survivors for the equivalent of one Health State , Second Wind activates.
While Second Wind is activated, the next time you are unhooked or unhook yourself, you are affected by the Broken Status Effect.
Second Wind deactivates once you are completely healed or if you are put into the Dying State before Second Wind successfully triggers.
You will lose the Broken Status Effect once Second Wind deactivates.
Second Wind does not activate if you are already afflicted by the Broken Status Effect.
"Yeah, that's a no." — Steve Harrington
- Main article: Hawkins National Laboratory
Located below the Hawkins National Laboratory, this underground complex released dozens of inter-dimensional creatures in November of 1983, before the rift was sealed.
The site kept some vestiges of its past as the mental health institute, including a mouldy isolation tank used by patients suffering from acute anxiety that was later modernised for mind control experimentation on promising test subjects.
Now the walls of the abandoned facility are sprayed with bullets and blood, evidence of a battle against inter-dimensional creatures.
- CHAPTER XIII: Stranger Things is unique in that it features two new Survivors instead of just one.
CHAPTER XIII: Stranger Things was first teased after the official Netflix Twitter account posted a tweet during E3 2019 which told players to "watch out" for upcoming projects with different companies. Behaviour, the developers behind Dead By Daylight, was one of them. Link
