Behaviour Interactive has announced that the Japanese horror icon Ringu will be coming to Dead By Daylight in March 2022.
The developer revealed that it’s collaborating with Japanese entertainment editor and publisher Kadokawa to bring Chapter 23 to life. The new chapter will be inspired by Kōji Suzuki’s 1991 novel, Ring, and the original Japanese film adaptation, The Ring. The premise of the psychological horror follows a VHS tape that, upon viewing, promises that person’s death in seven days.
“The importance of the Ringu franchise in Japan, and its influence on culture around the world are undeniable. To be given the opportunity to dive into that legendary story as we bring this creation into Dead by Daylight is an immense honor”, said game director, Mathieu Côté. “This new Chapter will give our players something intensely dark and troubling, a real heart-pounding experience that adds to the already high intensity of our game.”
