6Dead By Daylight

An asymmetric horror multiplayer, Dead By Daylight pits three survivors against one killer. If you’re the killer, lucky you: you get to hunt down those survivors and try to ensure they don’t, er, survive. But if you’re in the shoes of a survivor, you need to do whatever you can to make sure you don’t get caught and, even better, try to thwart the killer if you can. It’s no easy task though. We’ve all seen slasher movies. And in Dead by Daylight, you get to star in one.

This isn’t a game for the faint of heart; it’s scary and tense – but with the right company, it can be a hell of a lot of fun. Playing with friends, whether you’re working together as the survivors, or pitting against each other as killer and survivor, makes Dead by Daylight all the more entertaining. And the huge range of characters on offer via DLC – including famous faces like Ash from Evil Dead, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill and more – means you’ll not get bored of this one quickly. If you have a penchant for horror, Dead by Daylight is one of the best online multiplayer games on Xbox Game Pass.
