Following on from the introduction of Halloween’s Michael Myers, asymmetrical horror sensation Dead by Daylight will be adding another well known killer to the ranks. Starbreeze Publishing and Behaviour Digital have announced that the infamous Leatherface will be joining the growing roster of killers in the game, having first appeared in the cult classic horror movie The Texas Chainsaw Massacre back in 1974. Since his debut, the chainsaw-wielding psychopath has gone on to freak audiences out across a number of films, cementing his place as a pop culture icon.
Leatherface, who is available in the Steam version of DBD from today, brings a new set of perks along with him, as well as his iconic chainsaw and an additional sledgehammer for good measure. As if he wasn’t terrifying enough already!
The newly added killer is available for $3.99 on PC via Steam, as well as other distribution channels. According to a recent press release, Dead by Daylight: Leatherface will be available on console versions soon.
Leatherface is sure to be a welcome addition to the multiplayer horror game, which sees a crazed killer hunting down four friends in a unique and terrifying experience. In what can be considered as a deadly game of cat and mouse, players assume the roles as both killer and survivor in a rather demented take on hide and seek.
Dead by Daylight is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
