First released in 2016, Dead by Daylight continues to enjoy immense popularity and is often ranked among the best horror games of all time, and with good reason! Dead by Daylight is one of the most brutal and terrifying games you will ever play, and thanks to the recent remake, Dead by Daylight Mobile is now better than ever! So if you’re already a fan wondering what’s new, or a new player thinking about checking it out, here are four reasons why you should take a look.
Out of sheer horror If you can imagine a twisted manhunt organized by one of horror fiction’s most sinister characters, then you pretty much get what Dead by Daylight Mobile is about.
Players are invited to take part in matches where they either take on the role of one of four survivors trying to escape their pursuer, or choose to be the pursuer (or killer as they are called in-game). and track down any survivors before they escape.
Each character in the game has unique abilities that present a new challenge with each game. Learning about the maps and the different routes (or loops) you can take to capture your victims or escape the killer is an addictive challenge – and for those playing as survivors, it’s a truly nerve-wracking challenge .
Thanks to a series of optimization and quality-of-life fixes, gameplay is now much smoother and seemingly bug-free, keeping your experience exciting, not frustrating.
New and Improved Graphics Upon its initial release, Dead by Daylight Mobile treated us to a visceral, stripped-down experience that perfectly embodied the ominous nature of its subject matter. However, mobile graphics have evolved a lot since then, leading NetEase to give the game a brand new look and overhaul the visual appearance of character designs and maps. Survivors are more alive, the environments are a lot clearer, and the killers look a lot more impressive. The dirty brownish hue is now replaced with a more vibrant color scheme. From looks alone, Dead by Daylight Mobile feels like a whole new game, and all the better for it.
The visual improvements don’t stop at the lighting and textures either. The menu screens have also been overhauled, everything is now brighter and much easier to navigate visually. A number of physical effects for clothing and hair have also been added which, along with a new shadow system, add a subtle level of realism that makes gameplay even more dramatic.
Share the Fear by Making Friends Dead by Daylight Mobile now includes a host of social features that finally give the game some much-needed purpose. After all, a good horror experience is one shared with friends, not endured alone.
Players can now chat with each other in pre- and post-game lobbies and communicate both privately and globally via the in-game messaging system. In addition, you can view your game history and performance stats and compare with your friends or see how you stack up against other players around the world with the new leaderboard system.
You can also build communities with the new squad system, which allows players to create a squad of up to seven members. Squad members also receive an additional 10% blood point bonus at the end of each match.
Find Everything You’re Looking For In The Bloodmarket To give yourself a little edge before starting a game, you can buy items like offers and add-ons in exchange in the Bloodmarket – a mobile-exclusive market system that offers the perfect Facility for on-the-go gaming.
The Blood Market makes it easy to spend your Blood Points to get treats without having to spend time acquiring specific items to unlock a new tier. Instead, you’ll be greeted with a variety of choices to buy at your leisure. Purchasing enough items at the first tier will unlock the next tier, and so on. The market also updates automatically every 24 hours, so you always have a new opportunity to find something you’re looking for.
The above reasons only scratch the surface of what Dead by Daylight Mobile has to offer. For the full breakdown, you can visit the game’s official website or dive into the game and experience it for yourself by downloading it right now from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
