Dead by Daylight has a new chapter, Forged in Fog, adding a new killer, The Knight.
A living corpse crammed into a suit of armour, The Knight promises to be a formidable foe. Should you fork out for this new Dead by Daylight chapter, you’ll the asymmetric multiplayer murder-em-up will let you employ a range of new supernatural skills.
By far the coolest ability the Knight has is to send out a guard, which actively patrols the map. As this killer you can also give them actions and patrol routes, so you can make it attack a generator each time it reaches it.
The Knight’s guards can also attack and down survivors, all without the Knight being present. Does this seem a bit overpowered, given that the guard can also kick a generator to reveal survivor positions? Yes, but it also sounds like a lot of fun.
There’s also a new survivor, Vittorio Toscano who, having acquired mystical abilities due to his time in the Fog, can – amongst other things – pinpoint the killer. On top of that there’s a new map, the Shattered Square, a gloomy ravaged village.
But even if you don’t pay for this new chapter, there’s a neat surprise waiting for Dead by Daylight players. You can now play against bot survivors – in other words, if you want to practice being the Killer, you can populate an entire game with bots. They won’t use perks but it could be a great way to get to grips with the game’s many murderers.
