Dead By Daylight Teases A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger as Its Next Playable Killer

Dead By Daylight's next playable character might make you lose some sleep, as A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Kreuger appears to be coming soon.

Since the game’s release last year, Dead By Daylight has included several iconic horror movie icons like Halloween‘s Michael Myers and Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with one more horror movie killer joining the game in the near future.

In a new teaser video from Dead By Daylight, the video (titled “Don’t Fall Asleep”) showcases a pipe with four scratch marks digging into it with a slash, giving a pretty clear indication that A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger will be joining as the next playable killer in the game.

No other details or indications were given as to when we can expect Freddy to join in the game, but given that Halloween is on the horizon, it wouldn’t be too much to expect that Freddy may join the fray sometime later this month to coincide with the game’s upcoming Halloween events. Let’s just hope you don’t lose too much sleep over it. Better yet – probably a better idea not to get any sleep at all until then.

Dead By Daylight is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For a closer look at the tease for Freddy, you can check out the newly-released video below:
