The survivors have to find enough clues to understand what the killer is, how to escape, and how to help their partner. The killer has to hunt them down and kill them before they escape. Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game that can be played with up to eight players. It is a first-person game that also includes a third-person perspective. It is played on a map that is randomly generated before each game. There are several game modes that can be played, including 4-vs-1 mode.

Gameplay

The gameplay has three different phases. The first phase is where the survivors are searching the area for clues. The second phase is where the survivors are running from the killer. The third phase is when the survivors have been caught by the killer. The game can be played by up to four players, two survivors and two killers. There are three types of gameplay, namely, quickplay, custom game, and ranked game. The game is mainly played in two game modes, namely, blood hunt and survivors. The game consists of 10 different maps, and four difficulty settings. Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer survival horror video game from the creators of "L4D". The game was originally a student project from a group of college students in Sweden. The group pitched their idea to the founders of "L4D" and the became the first external developer to work on a Valve game.

Graphics

The graphics are created from a first person perspective, and the killer is seen in a shadowy silhouette. The graphics are not too detailed, but the lack of detail allows the player to focus more on the gameplay.

Replayability

The replayability for this game is very high. There are a few different difficulties for the killer, and there are many different maps to play on. This game is a constant challenge, and there is a new killer and a new map every month.
