Dead by Daylight has already sold over 1.8 million copies in its worldwide efforts on just one platform. After its success on PC, the 4v1 survival horror game by developer Behaviour Digital and publisher Starbreeze Studios will soon be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Today, we got a console launch trailer for Dead by Daylight, showcasing the game’s horrific atmosphere and hinting at some of the core mechanics involved.

In Dead by Daylight, players take part in an asymmetrical multiplayer arena in which four Survivors must escape the clutches of one crazed Killer. Survivors play through the game in third-person, allowing them to have a naturally stronger awareness of their surroundings in order to better avoid the Killer. The Killer, played in first-person, must hunt down each victim before they can achieve their goal of escaping the Killing Ground either together or alone.

Dead by Daylight for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be available for pre-order both digitally and physically on June 6. The game has a suggested retail price of $29.99. Special Editions of the game are also being sold and will contain the following additional content.
