Dead By Daylight Announces its Next Horrifying Chapter

Dead By Daylight Announces its Next Horrifying Chapter

I don't think I'll ever look at twins the same way.

Dead By Daylight has found success since its release in 2016 with its ability to make players truly fear one another. Aided by expansion packs that introduce popular horror monsters and characters from series such as HalloweenSilent Hill, and Stranger Things, the game has sold more than 5 million copies as of May 2019. Earlier this week, the next chapter for Dead By Daylight, A Binding of Kin, was announced and it looks spooky.

A tweet from the official Dead By Daylight Twitter account announced the expansion on Tuesday morning. Along with the announcement stating that, “good things come in pairs,” the tweet had a quick video trailer showing off a new playable survivor as well as a new monster. 

The monster or, perhaps more accurately, monsters is/are called the Twins and is/are completely grotesque. The character is a two for one comprised of a woman with a jagged hand scythe and a deformed child that rips out of her stomach to attack players.

It’s gross to look at in the stylized cartoon promo video, but looking at the character model that the Dead By Daylight account tweeted in the comments is totally something else. Additionally in the comments, the official Twitter account confirmed that the name of the baby is Victor and that the Twins will be able to detach from one another to attack players for more range.

The name of the new survivor is Élodie Rakoto, but other than her name and sweet outfit, not much is known about her at the time of writing.
