Dead By Daylight might make you want to reconsider going to sleep with the introduction of Freddy Krueger as a playable character, just in time for Halloween.

With his iconic hat, sweat, and knived gloves, Freddy Kreuger is a horror icon that few others live up to, and now those playing Dead By Daylight will get the chance to take on (or fight against) the iconic horror movie villain in a new DLC coming to the game very, very soon.

After an initial tease a few weeks ago, developer Behaviour Interactive has revealed that A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Kreuger is being added to Dead By Daylight in a new DLC that will arrive for the game tomorrow, October 26th, bringing the iconic character into the game as one of its playable killers that the opposing team must outlast and survive against.

While the teaser video is cinematic and doesn’t show gameplay of Freddy in action, his introduction into the game is still one that many fans (of both the game and horror movies in general) should be looking forward to, especially with Halloween on the horizon. However, you might want to reconsider that early bedtime though…

Dead By Daylight is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For a closer look at Freddy Krueger’s introduction into the game, you can check out the full reveal video below:
