Dead by Daylight Gets Graphical Overhaul with The Realm Beyond

Dead by Daylight is kicking off a major new update called The Realm Beyond. It aims to vastly improve the game's visual style.

Asymmetrical horror game Dead by Daylight is set to get a major facelift later this month. The team at Behaviour Interactive is hard at work on what they’re calling The Realm Beyond project. As part of celebrating the game’s fifth anniversary, Behaviour is making top-to-bottom visual updates alongside some improved quality of life features. They shared a first-look trailer of some of the graphical improvements coming soon. Give it a look below.

The first part of Dead by Daylight‘s The Realm Beyond project hits on September 8. The project will continue through fall 2021, so it’s quite the undertaking. The team is starting by making some major changes to Springwood and Yamaoka Estate. Players can expect improved lighting and the team is trying to make each room in the levels feel unique. Not only does that mean visual changes, but each room will now have its own function.

Of course, this is just the beginning. Players should look for several more updates over the course of the next year. As mentioned, it’s not just visuals either. The team is working to improve Cross-Play functionality and players should expect even more news out of future updates.

It’s an exciting time for the Dead by Daylight community. The game is obviously popular, and seeing the devs throw this much weight behind a refresh has to be reassuring. Hopefully, the year of content brings exactly what fans want.

Dead by Daylight is available now on mobile, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One. The Realm Beyond project kicks off on September 8 and will run through fall 2021.
