Finally, Chapter 18 of Dead by Daylight has been announced. The new chapter is dubbed 'A Binding of Kin'.

Along with the new chapter, comes a killer. Well, a killer and a half to be exact.


In a very DBD fashion, the team shared a short clip to Twitter and follows this up with a full reveal in the form of an animated teaser trailer. 

Here's everything we know about the games next killer, dubbed 'The Twins'.

We will be updating this piece as more information is revealed.

Chapter 18 Killer - The Twins

The next killer to join the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game is 'The Twins'.

As per the games devs, here's what we know about the killers:

"Charlotte and Victor Deshayes formed an emotional bond like none other. After a life of hardship and suffering, The Entity has twisted their love for one another into something truly terrifying."


Based on the first few teasers it was suspected the new killer was going to be a Wendigo, but it's good to see they've gone for something a little more original - and horrifying.

Our past can sometimes be a burden, that drives us to the most dangerous places in search of answers and hope...
