Dead By Daylight's confirmed that Chapter 23 begins with a brand new horror collaboration. Launching in March 2022, they're bringing in cult horror classic Ringu, following previous crossovers with Hellraiser and Resident Evil.
Teaming up with Japanese entertainment publisher Kadokawa, developers Behaviour Interactive confirmed they're taking inspiration from Kōji Suzuki’s novel, alongside "the original acclaimed film adaptation."
Dead By Daylight's Next Collaboration, Ringu, Kicks Off Chapter 23 This March
Speaking in a press release, Mathieu Côté, Game Director for Dead by Daylight, told players:
The importance of the Ringu franchise in Japan, and its influence on culture around the world are undeniable. To be given the opportunity to dive into that legendary story as we bring this creation into Dead by Daylight is an immense honor. This new Chapter will give our players something intensely dark and troubling, a real heart-pounding experience that adds to the already high intensity of our game.
Adding to this further, Reiko Imayasu, Producer at Kadokawa, also weighed in with a fear-inspiring message, telling fans:
We are very excited about the collaboration with Behaviour Interactive and the Dead by Daylight team. We’ll be sending one of our most haunting characters into the Fog to pour down horrors that will rival all the great predecessors. Fans should beware of their heart; this deadly newcomer will definitely strike them, and they will tremble with fear whilst they wait.
You can watch the announcement trailer above but unsurprisingly, we don't have many details beyond this. We're still waiting for confirmation on Chapter 22 release date's in the meantime, but as always, we'll keep you informed when we hear further Dead By Daylight news.
