Dead By Daylight Mobile Is Bringing 4v1 Horror To Apple & Android Devices

0

Asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Dead By Daylight will be coming to Apple and Android mobile devices courtesy of a partnership between mobile powerhouse NetEase Games and the title's developer, Behaviour Interactive. Dead By Daylight was one of the breakout games of the indie multiplayer scene a few years ago, competing directly with titles like PUBG on Steam for a while and captivating audiences with a smart, viewable asymmetrical set-up that felt pretty balanced.

While multiplayer gaming has been utterly dominated by battle royales recently - with greats like PUBGFortnite, and Apex Legends competing for similar audiences - Dead By Daylight has still carved out a niche for itself as a refreshing change from the norm, something that has kept the title going for years and created a passionate, dedicated fanbase. One thing that the title has lacked when compared to other successful iterations on the multiplayer genre, however, has been a mobile offering - something that horror fans could do while they're in transit or in-between daily tasks. Dead By Daylight's gameplay isn't the type that would be hampered by smaller screens or a lack of buttons to press, so the transition always seemed like one that would make sense.

Now, Dead By Daylight Mobile has been confirmed by developer Behaviour Interactive, which is partnering with NetEase Games in order to realize the port in time for a spring 2020 release date in the Americas and EMEA. The announcement was accompanied by the launch of Dead By Daylight Mobile's Google Play pre-registration campaign, which will award players with in-game bonuses based on the amount of interest and pre-registered players generated during the campaign. Mathieu Côté, Dead By Daylight Mobile's game director, discussed the intent of the mobile offering in a press release:

"Our fans have been eager for the launch of this title since we first announced it and we’re happy to say our early adopters will be rewarded for their support and dedication. We’re delivering a fully-fledged and definitive product on iOS and Android devices and fans can expect complete support and great content for a long time to come."

Dead By Daylight has over 15 million players worldwide on PC and consoles, so it's not like Behaviour Interactive's mobile offering will be catering to a small audience. Dead By Daylight Mobile could revitalize a game that's still going strong and, with years of content behind it and the balancing that comes with that, new players enticed by the mobile version could come to find a game that's polish and depth makes it their go-to for some time.

NetEase Games will also be handling publishing of Dead By Daylight Mobile in Japan, South Korea, and South Asia, which means the title will be officially launching there, too. It's a big partnership for both parties and more dedicated support to Dead By Daylight Mobile could be exactly what's required in creating the next mobile multiplayer craze - and, if nothing else, the game once again offers a great alternative to the standard multiplayer experience that many other games are currently embracing.

The Avengers Just SWAPPED Roles in Insane Hero Change

Warning! Spoilers for Avengers/Defenders: Tarot #3 below!

It's not unheard of for Avengers to temporarily step into the roles of fellow teammates. Captain America wielding Mjolnir was an incredibly exciting moment in Avengers: End GameBut, what would happen if the Avengers were thrown into a blender and their powers were redistributed? Avengers/Defenders: Tarot #3 finds out.

Avengers/Defenders: Tarot by Alan Davis and Paul Renaud is a reality-bending adventure, where the villainous Diablo grabs the ichor and tarot cards to gain control of the Avengers. However, once his plan starts to fail, he jumps through a mysterious portal. Doctor Strange follows him as it closes and ends up traveling through time (encountering Galactus before his arrival on Earth) and finds himself in an entirely different reality after Diablo's tarot cards are sliced in half.

Doctor Strange ends up in a reality where familiar Marvel heroes have completely new powers, appearances, and codenames. Doctor Strange becomes a major hippy who sits on Silver Surfer's board - who rides through the astral planes.  Captain America is now Major Gamma, who is a Hulk wielding Cap's Vibranium shield. Silver Surfer is now Captain Cosmos, who appears to be a remix of Guardian, as he's wearing a blue and star ensemble as the guardian of the universe. Meanwhile, Scarlet Witch is the new Sorceress Supreme as Scarlet Strange, the Hulk is now the Hulkhoid - an android Hulk, the Vision is Reaper - the specter of death, Namor is now the wizard of Atlantis, Imperius Rex, and Valkyrie is now Eiserne Jungfrau (Iron Maiden) - the first sword of Asgard.

Diablo is justifiably confused with the new universe around him. He tells the remixed Avengers/Defenders that "none of you are as you should be... and I shouldn't be here." This new reality is attacked by a group of cutesy superheroes called The Unbelievables along with football players that could be a reference to NFL SuperPro. "Cosmic order has already begun to collapse. The fabric of reality cannot survive if you are permitted to exist," a giant demon-looking monster tells the Avengers/Defenders group before saying he's going to eliminate them. Like the heroes, reality is slowly blending together.

In previews for Tarot #4, the final issue of the four-part miniseries, the  Avengers/Defenders amalgamation will fight against the clock to return things to normal. Will the changes to reality have any permanence or can the superteams figure out how to fix things before it's too late? It's going to be an uphill battle for the Avengers/Defenders, but at the very least, it will be cool to see the new powers they wield.
