Dead by Daylight’s K-Pop-themed chapter ‘All-Kill’ will officially be released on all platforms tomorrow, March 30. Developer Behaviour Interactive is releasing a new collection of cosmetics called Seoul Sights to celebrate the occassion.
Earlier this month, Dead by Daylight added the newest killer/survivor pair to its asymmetrical PvP horror game. Themed around the world of K-Pop, Dead by Daylight’s new killer is called The Trickster, a murderous K-Pop star whose quest for the spotlight led him towards a path of murder.
On the survivor, side is Yun-Jin Lee, a music producer who led The Trickster down the path of stardom but ignored his murderous impulses in order to create the biggest hit at her music agency. Now that The Trickster is out for blood, Lee is on the chopping block.
Behaviour Interactive worked with K-Pop singer Kevin Woo from the band U-KISS to help get the K-Pop elements of the chapter right. “I love how this chapter captures all the amazing elements of K-pop including the eye-catching visuals of the characters, addictive music, and cultural backdrop with a horror twist,” says Woo.
“I have no doubt that the K-Pop community will fall in love with this chapter as much as I did and I hope people who aren’t familiar with K-Pop will get introduced to it through the All-Kill chapter.”
The Seoul Sights collection adds Korean streewear-style outfits including rare outfits for the survivor Yun-Jin, a rare skin for The Trickster, and more outfits for survivors Adam Francis, Feng Ming, Felix Richter, Elodie Rakoto, and Dwight Fairfield.
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer game where four players control survivors who must work together and escape a fifth player who controls a killer. The killers include a mix of original and known horror characters, including murderers from Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Saw, Scream, and Silent Hill.
