share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Dead by Daylight recently started celebrating its 5th Anniversary which if you can't tell is a good sign of a healthy and thriving live service game if we've seen one.

For those who don't know, the premise is simple: It's a 1v4 multiplayer game that allows players to control either a demonic killer or a survivor desperately attempting to escape the map.


You can even control some of your favourite killers/characters from some of the world's best-known horror franchises. Sooner or later you'll be debating who the best Dead by Daylight killer is with the rest of the community.

If you've never played the game before and looking for a quickfire way to test if it's something you'd keen on playing full time, it's perhaps worth playing on Xbox Game Pass. But with Xbox constantly rotating games out of the Game Pass list, it's always worth checking on the games current availability.

Is Dead By Daylight On Xbox Game Pass?

At the time of writing (July 2021), Dead by Daylight is available on Xbox Game Pass.


You'll also be able to enjoy lots of DLC content from the game, including everything included in the popular Stranger Things and Silent Hill Editions. Not to mention the games most recent DLC drop: The Resident Evil Chapter & Nemesis Killer.

Plus, you can be sure that Xbox Game Pass will include all future content, like Dead by Daylight Chapter 21 coming later this year.

Online multiplayer on Xbox still requires Xbox Live Gold, a subscription sold separately.

So it's recommended that if you are going to play the game on Game Pass that you opt for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which comes with Xbox Live Gold bundled in.
