Dead by Daylight from developers Behaviour Digital, has released a new chapter ‘Curtain Call’, this is to celebrate the game success with over 4 million copies worldwide and is still growing strong. The New Chapter also includes an in-game store and tutorials for new players.
Curtain Call is now available for the price of $6.99 on PC through Steam and other digital distribution channels and will soon be made available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
A NEW ECONOMY AND A NEW STORE
The Dead by Daylight economy has been completely overhauled, now giving players the ability to earn new content in addition to buying it. Iridescent Shards are earned with playtime via a new player leveling system. An additional currency called Auric Cells is now available for purchase in packs ranging from 5 USD to 50 USD. Both currencies can be used to unlock characters and skins.
The approach to the store was designed from the ground up to be respectful to players, based on four pillars:
- One Community: Maps will always be free, so the playerbase will never be segmented
- Original Dead by Daylight characters can be earned: the community can now choose between earning or buying new content.
- All in with cosmetic items: players can now personalize their character, adding to their experience
- Transparency: Microtransactions will help support new content development.
“Behaviour Digital is incredibly proud to celebrate the two milestones for Dead by Daylight: the game’s second-year anniversary, as well as the fact that it has surpassed 4 million copies sold across all platforms. This outstanding performance reflects the ability of our teams to continually receive player feedback to refine their experience and offer new high-quality content,” said Stephen Mulrooney, Senior Vice-President, Behaviour Digital.
“2018 is set to be a tremendously exciting year for Behaviour Digital. Creating our own original games has always been our dream and we are honoured to have such a passionate and vibrant community of fans from all around the world. We are incredibly enthusiastic about the future and are more committed than ever to grow and invest in our games for years to come,” he added.
