Dead by Daylight is doing something pretty special for its fifth birthday: the survival horror co-op game will run a Resident Evil crossover, joining in the celebration of the legendary horror franchise’s 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, Dead by Daylight will add two survivors and a killer from the Resident Evil series, each with their own unique perks and abilities.
Jill Valentine, as she appeared in the Resident Evil 3 Remake, is the first new Resident Evil survivor. Behaviour Interactive says her perks highlight both her specialised military training and her resilience against impossible odds. Joining her is Leon Kennedy, taken from the Resident Evil 2 remake. His perks are also split between offence and support, and he’ll be able to spawn a flashbang that blinds the killer – that’s a perk he’ll always have, and he won’t need to equip the item before the match.
For the killer, Behaviour Interactive says it had a “lot of different material to choose from,” but ultimately it settled on the Nemesis-T type, who is just called The Tyrant in Dead by Daylight’s crossover.
