Dead by Daylight: Stranger Things Chapter DLC Out Now

Horrors of Upside Down has made it to Dead by Daylight in latest Stranger Things chapter DLC, out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Always introducing new and interesting elements to asymmetric survival horror game Dead by Daylight, developer Behaviour Interactive and publisher 505 Games opted in for a crossover with Netflix sci-fi horror series Stranger Things.

This latest DLC chapter is already out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which includes a new killer, two survivors and a map location. Also, developers felt generous enough to kick-start a sale on all major platforms this week.

DBD is now having an 80's vibe with introduction of popular scary elements of Stranger Things into Entity's World. On its fourth year of content, more nightmare fuel is added to the mix to force survivors into facing new challenges.

Behaviour teamed up with online streaming giant Netflix to work on newest DLC chapter that includes monstrous Demogorgon creature, investigative reporter Nancy Wheeler and everyone's favorite big brother Steve Harrington.

Underground Complex of Hawkins National Laboratory will now become a killing ground for the supernatural hunter from an alternate dimension called Upside Down that Nancy and Steve will try to get away from at any cost.

Demogorgon is a humanoid monstrosity that is quick and brutal, who creates portals on ground or wall and travels through them to reach its prey. It's very presence changes surrounding environment and even affects nearby survivors.

Many aspects of the series are awfully similar to themes of DBD that nicely blended into its current lore and 1vs4 gameplay. Stranger Things chapter also breaks a trend by adding a non-human killer for the first time with two unique survivors.

Picking up only Nancy and Steve from many fan-favorite characters was tough but it was their survival skills that made them a perfect fit. Harrington is more resilient to take beating whereas Wheeler is good at scouting and stealthy approach.

PC version of the game is currently free for a week on Steam and you can then purchase it at 50% off until September 23, 2019. Players on console can have it at half price on PlayStation Store and $10.00 discount at Microsoft Store.

Dead by Daylight has debuted iconic psychotic killers like Freddy Krueger and Ghost Face in past but adding apex predator Demogorgon into the mix only teases possibility of bringing Aliens and Predator on board for upcoming hunting seasons.

Control DLC May Have Alan Wake Crossover

Recently revealed post-launch DLC content for Control may finally tie in to story of Alan Wake in 2020.

In a recent venture with publisher 505 Games, developer Remedy Entertainment has seen critical and commercial success with release of action-adventure game Control on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to their latest announcement for upcoming post-launch content roadmap for the game, two new expansions are revealed and one of them is clearly teasing a tie-in to 2010 supernatural horror universe of Alan Wake.

Before Control, Finnish developer Remedy made a reputation with critically acclaimed psychological thriller title Alan Wake. Although there was a stand-alone follow-up title Alan Wake's American Nightmare, fans never got a true sequel.

Players have already found clues, documents and Easter eggs during their mind-bending exploration of Control that clearly points at events of Bright Falls from first Alan Wake game that was launched almost 10 years ago for Xbox 360.

Initially, it was an easily missable teaser image of Control's second expansion AWE but when Remedy creative director/writer Sam Lake shared that image on Twitter with a cryptic caption, many people starts noticing what was up.

A closer look at poster of AWE expansion reveals official box art of Alan Wake in top half of its lettering that sued fonts from the same game. In below half, protagonist Jesse Faden of Control is probably fighting Hiss at Federal Bureau of Control.

AWE can either stand for either "Alan Wake Experience" or Altered World Events and the latter one actually makes more sense. Remedy has also teased these references earlier in their 2016 sci-fi adventure shooter title Quantum Break.

Although both Alan Wake and Control are set on different plots, many hints suggest that they both are from same universe and maybe even the latter is some sort of continuation of events that took place in Washington forest a decade ago.

According to press release, AWE will arrive on mid-2020 and will send Jesse to investigations sector of Oldest House, a part where FBC keeps tabs on Altered World Events and Bright Falls' case was what the Bureau investigated earlier.

With every lead matching and pointing to each other, there could is a very good chance for a crossover event or even nothing at all. If not anything, it can very much help revive a beloved series once again by providing a great launch pad.

Through its ending, Control has set up possibilities for a potential sequel to expand further on lead character Jesse Faden's story and despite Remedy expressing to make Alan Wake 2, nothing can be said for sure until next year.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Cancelled

Skybound has terminated agreement with Starbreeze for OVERKILL's The Walking Dead as they failed to meet quality standards.

Despite having a lot of potential to become a blockbuster release, first-person shooter title OVERKILL's The Walking Dead from developer Overkill Studios failed miserably to become a decent co-op shooter experience that players can enjoy.

On top of that, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game were delayed twice now and the PC version on Steam wasn't getting any positive feedback due to a buggy launch. All hope is lost now that it has been cancelled entirely after quite a struggle for survival.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Postponed

Loosely based on the fictional universe of The Walking Dead monthly comic-book series from Image Comics by creator Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible), the game were to follow co-op gameplay mechanics of Payday: The Heist reportedly.

Initially, they announced the title on August 14, 2014 and showed some concepts at E3 2015. Then it was delayed in 2016, which repeated again in 2017 until Overkill Studios was able to show off the first-look gameplay footage at E3 2018.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Delayed Again

According to distribution plan, November 2018 was set as the release window for OTWD for all available major platforms but launch date for console versions was delayed to February 2019 and everything starts falling apart from that point.

When Sony started sending emails to pre-ordering customers of PSN, it became very apparent that console version of the game very well might have been canned but 505 Games confirmed it to be postponed shortly after that.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Missed Sales Targets

Skybound Entertainment, who is the license and rights owner of The Walking Dead property has took matter into their hands to publicly announce that they are terminating contract with Starbreeze Publishing and will discontinue all efforts regarding OTWD.

Skybound expressed their outright displeasure for the game not meeting the certain quality of standard they were assured by the Sweden-based developer studio and apologized to fans for not being able to provide premium quality content.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Gameplay Revealed

People were already pretty skeptical about the future of OTWD and looks like luck just ran out on this one. Earlier, Starbreeze even revealed their disappointment from initial sales number generated from PC version sales mostly due to many in-game issues.

Only if Overkill Studios would have taken proper care of the IP, the game could even become the spiritual successor of popular co-op shooter series Left 4 Dead. Anyways, OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is removed from Steam, while PS4 and Xbox One version would not see release either.
