Behaviour Interactive will introduce Cross-Play and Cross-Friends in its multiplayer horror game, Dead by Daylight. As the press release reads, these two features will allow the entire community to play together, no matter what platform they are on.
Behaviour has implemented Cross-Play across PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. This follows a year of research, interviews, data analysis and the successful implementation of Cross-Play on Steam and Windows Store. Thus, players on console and PC will now face trials together.
The ability to play with friends from any and all platforms was a feature widely requested by the community. This latest update will also add support for Cross-Friends. Finally, players will now be able to create a friends list that is cross-platform and enjoy an unprecedented multiplayer experience.
“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.”
Dead by Daylight boasts more than 25 million players across the globe and across all platforms. On any given day, one million players step into the fog, whether on PC, console, or mobile.
