Dead By Daylight Board Game Coming To Kickstarter Later This Month
Collector's Edition will include 16 killers, 17 survivors, and four maps.
Board-game adaptations are all the rage these days, it seems. Jagex just announced a RuneScape board game, and I've been playing the heck out of my new personal favorite, the Stardew Valley Board Game. Now Behaviour Interactive is looking to get into the, uh, game, announcing today that it will be partnering with Level 99 Games to create a board game based on Dead By Daylight.
Dead By Daylight: The Board Game mimics the action of the popular multiplayer game, with one player taking on the role of the killer and two to four players acting as survivors. Each survivor has a special ability, and all characters can equip perks to help them achieve their goals, whether it be escape or murder. The goal for the survivors is to fix generators and escape, while the killer tries to hunt down all the survivors and kill them.
The game's designer, D. Brad Talton Jr., said that Level 99 "worked hard to capture the tension between the Survivors and the Killer on every turn." DBD Game Director Mathieu Côté added, "Level 99 have managed to perfectly adapt the Dead by Daylight experience to a board game: the Killers VS Survivors asymmetrical gameplay, the unexpected surprises, the game loops, everything is there."
The Dead By Daylight Board Game will come in a Standard Edition ($49.99) and Collector's Edition ($99.99). The Standard Edition includes six killers, seven survivors, and two maps, while the Collector's Edition has 16 killers, 17 survivors, and four maps. The roster of characters is drawn from DLC through March 2021's All-Kill, though there are no licensed characters, such as Freddy Kreuger or characters from Resident Evil.
