Dead by Daylight is an asymmetric survival horror game developed by Behaviour Interactive. Dead by Daylight was released on the Microsoft Windows operating system in June 2016,released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One home consoles in June 2017 and is scheduled for release on the Nintendo Switch in Fall 2019. The game is played exclusively as a one versus four (1 v. 4) online multiplayer where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught and sacrificed to the Entity. Among a handful of original characters, the game also includes unlockable and downloadable (DLC) Characters. Characters from the Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Saw horror franchises are featured. Players assume the role of one of the 16 Survivors, Dwight Fairfield, Meg Thomas, Claudette Morel, Jake Park, Nea Karlsson, Laurie Strode, William 'Bill' Overbeck, Ace Visconti, Feng Min, David King, Quentin Smith, David Tapp, Kate Denson, Adam Francis, Jeff Johansen or Jane Romero. The goal of the Survivors is to escape the enclosed area, which can be done in one of two ways: either by repairing a certain number of disabled Generators (always one Generator more than the number of Survivors that spawned into the trial) to provide power to the switch boxes of two Exit Gates leading out of the trial grounds; or by escaping through the Hatch. The Hatch appears when the number of repaired Generators exceeds the number of Survivors that are still alive by one, and opens only when there is only one Survivor remaining in the trial. The Survivors will need a key to open the Hatch if there is more than one person alive. The Survivors' movement options consist of sprinting, walking, crouch-walking or crawling. They must elude the Killer by losing their line of sight in a chase or by successfully hiding from them.
