Dead By Daylight has officially been launched for the Nintendo Switch. The game is available on the Nintendo eShop as well as participating retailers around the world. This latest version of the classic horror multiplayer game comes with new content that include nine killers, ten survivors, and three cosmetic packs. New chapters are also available for purchase including the Stranger Things add-on.

In Dead By Daylight, players find themselves in a hunt between a brutal killer and up to four survivors. Players can also experience the game with two styles of gameplay. They can play as survivor through a third-person perspective and can decide to act alone or work with other survivors. There is also the option to play the killer in a first-person perspective and hunt victims.

Players who buy the game for the Switch receive the exclusive Trapper cosmetic, Dead By Daylight's iconic killer. Not for the faint of heart, this cosmetic is for those who want to stand out.

In a statement, Behaviour Interactive Head of Partnerships and Dead By Daylight Game Director Mathieu Côté said that they are more than happy to have launched the game on the Switch since it is another way to get as many players as possible. The release for the Switch, he added, serves as "a great opportunity for our players to play the game they love, anywhere." He went on to say he is extending "a warm welcome into the world of the Entity to Switch users."

While the game offers a number of original characters, there are also downloadable characters from many famous horror franchises like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Evil Dead, Saw, and even Stranger Things. It even has characters from other games like Left 4 Dead. Overall it's a mature game that offers the thrill of hide and seek. Dead By Daylight is also on PC and consoles.
