Dead by Daylight Has a New Nicolas Cage Trailer

Dead by Daylight Nicolas Cage

Dead by Daylight’s getting a new survivor in the shape of Nicolas Cage and there’s now a new trailer.

Announced back in May, this is a thing that is definitely happening. Asymetric murder-em-up Dead by Daylight will be adding Nicholas Cage as a new survivor. We’d have preferred him to be a killer, due to his many badass roles, but you can’t have everything.

There’s a new trailer out and while it doesn’t show much in the way of gameplay it proves, at least, that Cage isn’t just phoning it in. He’s leaning into the ridiculousness of this particular crossover, delivering a monologue about horror, imagination and so on

Trailer aside, Behaviour Interactive has also revealed all of Cage’s in-game abilities. They’re Dramaturgy, Scene Partner and Plot Twist. Dramaturgy gives you a brief boost with a weird moment of overacting, Scene Partner lets you see the Killer’s aura and Plot Twist has you playing dead when injured.

The character is paid DLC and you can play as Nicolas Cage now via the Dead by Daylight Public Test Build. Or you can wait till July 25th when the character joins the main game. Be warned, things are going to get really, really hammy.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
