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.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Pennywise from IT

Latest mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake has turned Mr. X into Pennywise the Clown from It: Chapter Two.

Even more than seven month after developer/publisher Capcom released their much-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake; some enthusiastic fans can never get enough of it and tries to add something on its PC version.

Ever since the game came out, modder community has been going on a frenzy of adding pop culture characters from various franchises into RE2 and one such endeavor has brought Pennywise the Dancing Clown to Raccoon City.

An ancient cosmic being that has been preying on youngsters from small town of Derry for long has returned with the release of It: Chapter Two and has now swapped places with T-00 model Tyrant, who is commonly referred as Mr. X.

Surprisingly, Stephen King's It character nicely fits into his boots and follows the same routine of chasing you through halls of R.P.D. building while a creepy circus music plays in background and punching you down when close.

This Tyrant boss is already a pretty scary enemy with seemingly no weakness to bullets or other melee weapons; now wearing skin of a creature that gives everyone nightmares has made the relentless pursuer even scarier than before.

Not only does he have a terrifying presence, you have to run from the killer clown since you can't really kill it. Previously, reference of Pennywise was found in an Easter egg on Far Cry 5 and on recent beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Both Claire Redfield and Pennywise outfit mods were made by Marcos RC and one thing to mention there is that they are not free at all. Interested players would have to join his Patreon to get those, according to video uploader.

It: Chapter Two had a successful opening week at global box-office, earning over $300 million so far. We are pretty sure that this menacing creepy clown of Stephen King will show up in many games soon if not in Resident Evil 2 Remake.

You play as Ellis, an ex-cop who has a troubled past and is currently looking for a missing kid in Black Hills Forest with his trusty canine companion Bullet but what started as an ordinary investigation has soon turned into a nightmare for them.

Apparently, there is some mystical force at work that is haunting these forest grounds and you are forced to face your fears as you continue until you eventually face the witch but then it is just your distorted sanity against her curse.

Everything surround you will play out depending on your decisions and that even includes how you choose to treat your pet buddy. Whether you want to pet the dog and cheer him up with treats or try to discipline him is totally up to you.

There are a number of totems you come across that Bullet is afraid of but you need not to destroy them though. Players can also choose not to answer cell phone or walkie-talkie at times and contact others when deem necessary.

Although there are no decision wheels or dialogue options to be found within entire game, it has several alternative endings. This definitely is a different approach to how choices work in games and makes your journey more immersive.

The more you go deep into woods, situation will get intense and reaction to danger will determine where things will go next. Whatever you will act up on instinct will sum up your fate and shape a natural course of the story.

Despite not being a combat oriented title, there are confrontations with monstrous creatures inside the forest and using flashlight would be a great way to drive them away or turn on your camcorder night vision to be sneaky.

Blair Witch easily is one of the best psychological horror game ever made and Bloober Team has really worked hard to make sure of that. Other than retail purchase, the game is also available on Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox One.

Dying Light 2 Extended Gameplay Demo

Techland unveils full gameplay demo of Dying Light 2 from E3 2019, showcasing combat and parkour elements.

Up until now, upcoming survival horror game Dying Light 2 has only given us a brief look at its gameplay when developer/publisher studio Techland took E3 2018 to premiere an official announcement trailer to reveal the title to fans.

Then a new trailer was released at Xbox briefing during E3 2019 event and a full 26-minute long extended gameplay demo was shown to press behind-closed-doors, which has now become available for everyone to watch and enjoy.

This newly revealed gameplay footage comes with exclusive developer commentary to point out some key-notes.




RELATED: Rockstar Games May Have Teased Bully 2

An infected survivor named Aiden Caldwell is serving as protagonist of the central plotline and will be a key-focus of entire playthrough. He embarks a mission to find drinking water supply for The City as it will be on a brink of collapse.

His guide and friend in doing so is Frank, who thinks the only person who can solve this water crisis for them is The Colonel who is a pretty crazy guy and runs a fraction named The Renegades from The City's pumping station.

Using his influence, Frank arranges a meeting between them and representatives from two other fractions. Aiden is called in as well to join them during this meet up and he sees everyone else celebrating at Frank's bar indoors.

From above rooftop of a building in District 2, he sees a truck approaches and hearing a gunshot, he quickly jumps in to fight couple of Renegade members who shot Frank and his friend Matt tells him to get to Colonel.

From there on, Aiden keeps following that truck which came in earlier by leaping from building to building using his parkour abilities. In some cases, he made good use of a grappling hook and a paraglider at his disposal to make jumps.

In between his leaping and swinging, he would come across some startled civilians and in some cases, small group of zombies. Most of them were acting dozy and he even used one of them to grab and used to survive a fall when landing.

Chasing the truck, he crashed through a wooden ledge and ended up in a Dark Zone at one point, where he was almost about to get overwhelmed by swarm of zombies and his infection starts progressing but Aiden managed to fight back.

He wields a modded weapon that is very efficient for melee combat against undead hordes but also can use UV flashlight or special UV flares when he is trapped among a small horde of zombies in a tight space to make a way out.

RELATED: Shenmue 3 Gamesom 2019 Trailer

Through more jumping and leaping, he managed to find a way into the truck and eventually into pumping station, where The Colonel resides and after fighting his henchmen, Aiden was finally able to turn on the water pumps.

This reveals a huge open-world sandbox full of new mechanics and quests for Aiden Caldwell to take part in. It also attracts group of marauders towards Colonel's base and some dreadful mutated creatures to rise from their watery grave.

According to developers, Dying Light sequel is at least four times larger than its predecessor title. However, you will lose at least 25 percent of overall content each time you will play and they believe it's actually a good thing.

Some latest inclusion of anti-zombie tech like UV lights gives the hero a better fighting chance whenever he is mobbed up and then there is a ranged weapon called Scorpio that is well suited to one-shot your enemies from distances.

Return of weapon modding is a plus for its weapons-based combat system that has evolved from Dying Light to become more gruesome. Player actions will turn direction for in-game narrative and unlock new gameplay mechanics to explore.

Dying Light 2 is currently scheduled to arrive during spring 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. Polish studio Techland will be distributing the in association with publisher Square Enix for North American regions.

LNII follows story of a new character named Mono, a young boy who will be joined by original protagonist Six. These two will journey to a Signal Tower that has distorted their surrounding world with its humming transmission.

As Mono set out to discover some dark secrets, his yellow raincoat wearing friend will serve as an AI companion. Both of these kids are tied to story and cooperation is essential in a yet to reveal gameplay mechanics.

RELATED: Sea of Thieves: Dark Relics Update Live Now

Given how Little Nightmares had players confined within indoor environments and then a lot of venturing to outdoor locations happening in sequel, it is easy to assume that LNII is likely to be bigger than the Maw from first game.

When you are going through a hostile area and come across some menacing enemies, stealth is a best approach for survival. Of course, there are some combat mechanics but they are mostly for self-defense purpose and to save Six.

The announcement trailer is more of a teaser that invites us to step into its same old creepy and dark atmosphere once again. Other than that, it doesn't reveal much to audience in terms of plot premise or gameplay features.

Little Nightmares II senior narrative designer, Dave Mervik stated to include an extra layer of complexity to puzzle solving and enemy encounters and we still have a lot to learn about the game until it finally launches next year.

The evil Entity from DBD has set its sights on town of Hawkins, Indiana to bring new nightmares for group of sacrificed survivors. This time, it has picked humanoid monstrous creature called the Demogorgon.

In Season 1 of the Netflix original series, these horrific beings emerged from an alternate dimension known as Upside Down. In a 4v1 gameplay setting, you can play as this supernatural predator to hunt down other players.

Dead Island 2 in Development by Dambuster Studios

Dead Island 2 is not dead yet as developer Dambuster Studios will continue working on the long-delayed zombie game.

Although 2011 survival horror game Dead Island was successful enough to release a stand-alone expansion Dead Island: Riptide and spin-off Escape Dead Island, it never saw release of its officially announced sequel, Dead Island 2.

After it was confirmed back in 2014, it has been five years in development and contrary to what many believes, the game is not cancelled yet. In fact, publisher Deep Silver has now handed over the project to internal developer Dambuster Studios.

In a recent investment report shared by THQ Nordic, it was finally revealed that long-delayed 2011 zombie game sequel is now handed over to new studios Dambuster after Sumo Digital has wrapped up their part on the project.

However, it was not clear how much progress they made so far throughout 2016 to 2019 but they assured not to act as a support studio for current developer since they have already concluded work on it before a planned transition.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part II Rumored to Release in February 2020

Polish video game developer/publisher Techland came on board at first but then they shift focus to Dying Light franchise. German based Yager Development was put in charge when they made a pitch to Deep Silver in 2012.

With a targeted Q2 2015 release window, Dead Island 2 was revealed at E3 2014 and a gameplay video was dropped on Gamescom 2014. Then UK-based Sumo Digital has taken over when Yager backed out from the game in 2015.

Those who almost forgot the announce trailer of Dead Island 2 at E3 2014 briefing event can check it out below.




RELATED: Hunt: Showdown Leaving Early Access

Dambuster has previously worked on first-person shooter title Homefront: The Revolution under publisher Deep Silver. Their current zombie-killing action will be launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with no set release date.

THQ Nordic is reportedly working on a new Saints Row game alongside Volition in parallel to a brand-new IP by developer Fishlabs. Also, TimeSplitters series co-creator Steve Ellis is making a return to make plans for its upcoming future.

RELATED: Zombie Army 4: Dead War E3 2019 Reveal

As of July 2018, official Twitter account for Dead Island still insisted that their long-anticipated sequel is still in development and most recently, THQ Nordic has backed that claim after assigning Dambuster Studios as its newest developer.

Following unfortunate departure of Sumo Digital and Yager Development, the game has now found its third developer. We only hope that Dead Island 2 find its charm the third time and become a worthy sequel to its 2011 predecessor.
