Features[edit | edit source]
- As a Survivor, go in alone or team up with friends to face an unknown threat. Use Items at hand, Unlocked Abilities and Environmental Objects to outwit the monster and escape from its killing ground.
- Set in a procedurally generated World, you'll never know what to expect, what you're facing and how to get away. You will have to make stressful choices under desperate circumstances. Every decision impacts your chances of survival.
- Killers come from all horror genres, from brutal slashers to terrifying paranormal entities. Master these monsters' unique powers and exploit the knowledge of your “home” to track, hunt down, break and sacrifice your victims before they get a chance to escape to safety.
- The asymmetry, procedural factors and unique thinking of human individuals make each Dead by Daylight match an unexpected scenario where the combined behaviour of each player creates a truly terrifying and thrilling narrative.
- Dead by Daylight Characters each have a deep progression and Unlockables which can be customized into your own personal strategy. Use your experience, Skills and load-out to climb up the competitive ladder and you might eventually discover the truth beyond the fog.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
Theme Music[edit | edit source]
- The Dead by Daylight Theme is centred around a four-note sequence of E-flat, D, E-flat, and C.
- This sequence marks the beginning of the Dies Irae (Latin for "The Day of Wrath"), a sequence originating in Gregorian plainchant.
- In history, it is most commonly found in Requiems, a Mass for the Dead or for Funerals.
- In contemporary times, it is often used as a theme or musical quotation in conjunction with settings and symbols of death and mortality.
File Cryptonyms[edit | edit source]
- For every Chapter and since CHAPTER VI, all data associated with it is internally named after a random country's name, going in alphabetical order, sometimes skipping a letter or two.
- This most likely started as an internal joke amongst the Developers due to Robert Englund's name (the original actor who portrayed Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street) sounding closely like the country of England and also being spelt similarly.
- This naming scheme eventually expanded to data associated with major updates and changes to Dead by Daylight, including the Endgame Collapse and Archive Tomes.
- The Dead by Daylight Mobile port and any data associated with it features a special internal reference: "Atlanta"
- "Atlanta" is the Capital of the State of Georgia in the US and finds its origins in "Atlantic", a reference to the transcontinental Atlantic-Pacific Railroad.
- "Niagara" comes from the "Niagara Falls" near Toronto, Canada.
- "Guam" is an organised, unincorporated territory of the United States in Micronesia.
- "Xipre" is the Catalan name of the Republic of Cyprus, an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
- After reaching the letter 'Z' with Mid-Chapter 4.3.0, the subsequent Chapter used the letter 'A' again, though not with the name of a country.
- "Aurora" is the Latin terminology used to describe the polar lights, also called "Aurora borealis" (Northern Lights) or "Aurora australis" (Southern Lights).
