  • It is not yet known which monsters or characters are going to be added to the game
  • The full reveal is scheduled for May 25

As part of the 25th anniversary of the “Resident Evil” franchise, Capcom and Behaviour Interactive will be introducing iconic characters from “Resident Evil” into “Dead by Daylight.’

A teaser trailer was recently released, featuring an unknown character hanging from a meat hook in a large forest area. An emblem of the Umbrella Corp logo falls to the ground as the hapless victim is taken by the Entity, “Dead by Daylight’s” primary antagonist.

Unfortunately, not much has been revealed as to which “Resident Evil” monster is going to be added to the game, or which of the series’ many protagonists are going to get introduced into “Dead by Daylight’s” pool of survivors.

Fans are hoping for at least one of the Tyrants from “Resident Evil” to be the next killer in the series, with either Mr. X from “RE 2” or “RE 3’s” Nemesis being the main choices. However, nothing is yet set in stone and the collaboration can go in any direction until official announcements are made.

Behaviour Interactive will be diving more into the “Resident Evil x Dead by Daylight” collaboration on May 25th, which marks the 5th anniversary of “Dead by Daylight.” The developers will be streaming on Twitch for what may be a reveal or presentation for the upcoming characters.

“Resident Evil” will be the latest addition to “Dead by Daylight’s” lineup of crossovers with other popular horror titles. The game has added both killers and survivors from famous horror franchises like “Halloween,” “The Nightmare On Elm Street” and even “Stranger Things.” Many of mainstream media’s monsters like “Silent Hill’s” Pyramid Head had proven to be good fits for the game’s mythos, and fans expect “Resident Evil” to follow suite.

“Dead by Daylight” also has its own cast of unique characters. The game’s latest update introduced The Trickster, a crazed K-Pop idol to the lineup of killers.

The game’s community has generally received “Dead by Daylight” positively despite controversies around the game’s monetization and somewhat toxic playerbase. Many fans are hoping that the “Resident Evil” collaboration will bring in even more players to the game once the update goes live in June.
