Dead By Daylight is set to introduce its next playable killer, which appears to be the Saw franchise's infamous Jigsaw killer.

Dead By Daylight brought players into a terrifying multiplayer experience of avoiding a relentless killer in 2016, and now a new (but familiar) face is set to join the roster of killer characters in the game that should please Saw fans.

A new teaser trailer from the official Dead By Daylight YouTube channel revealed that a new playable killer is on the horizon for the horror multiplayer game, and if the teaser is anything to by, it seems like the infamous Jigsaw killer from the Saw series of films will be terrorizing players next.

Previously, Dead By Daylight brought other iconic horror characters to the game over the past two years, including Halloween‘s Michael Myers, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s Leatherface, and most recently, the game brought on A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger during its Halloween event last fall.

Personally, I’m excited to see how the Dead By Daylight teams incorporates the Jigsaw killer’s penchant for elaborate tricks and traps into the multiplayer game, and how that might add a deeper level of terror to the game.

Dead By Daylight is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – for a closer look at the tease for the Jigsaw killer, you can check out the trailer below:
