Dead by Daylight is bringing slasher scares to the board game realm, as Level 99 and Behaviour Interactive have teamed up to make this nightmare a reality. Launching on March 29, a crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter has been announced to make this adaptation a reality.
Changing things up a bit while staying faithful to the video game, that'll involve two to four players working as survivors, trying to repair generators. Seeking to escape the Trial Grounds, one player takes on the role of the killer, guessing their moves and trying to finish these survivors.
Kickstarter For Dead by Daylight Board Game Announced by Level 99 and Behaviour Interactive
Detailing this further, Mathieu Côté, game director of Dead by Daylight, had to say:
“I am probably the biggest board game nerd that I know and Dead by Daylight: The Board Game is just an amazing experience. Many of us, on the DbD team, are huge board game fans, so our expectations were high. When we were presented this project, we were all impressed and excited.
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. And with almost all original characters present, all the different perks there’s a lot to discover and love in this. I’m definitely ordering my copy, and I recommend our fans do too!”
Dead by Daylight's board game will be priced at $49.99 USD, including 6 Killers, 7 Survivors, and 2 maps. The collector’s edition is priced at $99.99 USD, featuring 16 Killers, 17 Survivors, and 4 maps. Opening on March 29, players can expect copies by Halloween 2022 if/when it get funded.
