Dead by Daylight’s next Killer is coming when the popular sci-fi horror movie Alien collaboration arrives. No date was given for the new Alien content in Dead by Daylight, but we saw quick shots of a new map and know that the Xenomorph will be the newest Killer. The content will be fully revealed next Tuesday, August 8.
The Xenomorph makes complete sense as an addition to the Killer roster in Dead by Daylight. It is a ferocious creature that fits perfectly with other monstrosities like Leatherface, Michael Myers, the Demogorgon, and Freddy Krueger. These characters are notorious for being some of the biggest horror icons ever. Behaviour Interactive has built quite the roster of characters, and it only looks to get stronger.
We imagine the new map takes place on the Nostromo, the ship setting for the first Alien movie. There is also a quick look at the tabby cat Jones walking along the corridors. Typically, two Survivors also become available whenever a new Killer is added. Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley is almost guaranteed; we expect her to be shown off next week. After her, the options become more open between Bishop, Vasquez, Hicks, and Hudson. Our guess would be Hicks, but obviously, we don’t know, and it could be any of those characters and more from the series.
With the Alien universe making its way into The Fog, we would also say this leaves room for The Predator to appear in Dead by Daylight. There is no indication of that happening anytime soon, but the potential is there for another collaboration. It is always exciting when Dead by Daylight brings a new franchise with recognizable characters into the game. While it has good original characters, the collaborations get people’s attention, and a quick look at the Dead by Daylight Twitter confirms that players are very excited about the Alien content.
