Behaviour Interactive will introduce Crossplay and Cross-Friends in its multiplayer horror game, Dead by Daylight. According to a new announcement from the studio, players will now be able to network and play together on all platforms. The new Dead by Daylight Crossplay and Cross-Friends features will soon rollout to all platforms.
Crossplay has already been ported over to console releases of the game for PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. This is something the team has been working on for some time too. After more than a year of work, analysis and coding, the feature is ready to rollout across the board. The Dead by Daylight Crossplay and Cross-Friends features will run on both the versions for Steam and Windows Store.
“The Dead by Daylight team worked hand in hand with the platform owners to make this happen. After four years, millions of players, and countless matches and jump scares, Dead by Daylight is jumping into the future to meet and exceed both the rising tides of industry standards and the wishes of its players. Dead by Daylight, which has always been a place where all of horror lives, is not just here to stay, it is evolving.”
And it couldn’t come at a better time for Dead by Daylight. The community has pined for these features for some time, really since release. And the multiplayer game is enjoying some of its most-popular times recently. The game now has more than 25 million registered players across the globe, and continues to grow. As the development team introduces new killers and survivors, there has been quite the shift in perception of the game. As more and more content gets added, more and more players continue to flock to the spooky maps and try their hand at surviving the killer. More than 1 million people play the game everyday, according to the developers.
So in short, with the full implementation of crossplay, it can only get better from here for Dead by Daylight.
