The Resident Evil crossover in Dead by Daylight will take place on June 15th, according to Behavior Interactive and Capcom. The update will include the villain Nemesis as the killer, as well as survivors Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine. A map inspired by Raccoon City will also be included in the game.
The companies took advantage of the occasion to reveal a crossover trailer in which the biological monster uses its tentacle against a character. Dave Richard, the game’s creative director, announced the collaboration with Capcom in April, promising that “it will surprise both new and veteran players.”
We are delighted to be working with the legendary Capcom to create the next chapter of Dead By Daylight. It is an honor and an absolute joy to receive the original survival horror game in the Entity universe. The result is fantastic and will surprise both novice and veteran players. Players can expect a chapter filled with content and unprecedented ways to sacrifice or survive, these inspired by the renowned franchise.
The crossover comes on the 15th year anniversary of Dead By Daylight’s release and the 25th anniversary of the Japanese studio’s horror franchise.
Resident Evil Beta in Dead By Daylight?
Behavior Interactive has also released a beta version of the partnership. It is, however, only available for PCs. According to the studio, they would “love” to launch consoles as well, but it is not currently possible, though it is not completely ruled out.
Many fans are requesting that the beta be made available for video games on the production company’s own Twitter account. They, on the other hand, had no answers.
