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.

Diablo Trademark Hints Netflix Series

Revealed by a recent trademark registration, Diablo animated series is currently in works to debut on Netflix.

Action role-playing hack and slash Diablo game franchise has a dedicated fan following that has been asking developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment for long to make an animated or live-action series that would complement the existing lore.

Back in September 2018, there was already a rumor of this beloved series being adapted into an animated TV show for streaming giant Netflix and now a recent trademark registration has reinforced that possibility even more.

Originally the news broke when screenwriter Andrew Cosby made a statement on Twitter that he is in talks to be showrunner for an animated series on Lord of Terror by Activision and Netflix, which is deleted later and was never mentioned.

Blizzard apparently filed property called Diablo for trademark and it is listed for "Downloadable films and movies featuring narratives based on a video game and provided via a video-on-demand service", which sounds an awful lot like Netflix streaming services.

News of oncoming TV show and video games often gets spoiled by trademark registrations and looks like same thing happened to titular franchise. Recently, Cosby made another Tweet about a current super secret project that he wants to talk about soon.



RELATED: Diablo 3 Confirmed for Nintendo Switch

Following an immense success of Castlevania animated series, Netflix has seemingly lifted the curse of bad video game adaption and a Devil May Cry was confirmed on November 2018, followed by a recent announcement of Dragon's Dogma anime.

Fans of Diablo have been looking forward to something new from the series for so long, which concluded in major disappointment when Blizzard Entertainment decided to come up with announcement for upcoming mobile title Diablo Immortal at Blizzcon 2018.

RELATED: Blizzard Has Multiple Diablo Projects

A major fan backlash followed for taking away a popular title from PC to mobile devices, which caused Blizzard's stock value to plummet. Players started criticizing, ridiculing and throwing shades at the company on social media and they ended up receiving a lot of hate.

Despite their early claim of working on several projects on the known franchise, there was no announcement for a TV show, which is odd. Because, contrary of whatever reaction they got, an official revelation of Diablo coming to Netflix would have cheered the PC gaming crowd after all.
