The nightmare has finally arrived. Freddy Krueger and his legacy have invaded the popular survival horror title with the latest A Nightmare on Elm Stream expansion for Dead by Daylight. A modern twist to a classic, Freddy Krueger does what he does best with the latest chapters for the game and it's up to the player to survive against his newly revealed power "Dream Demon".
The latest chapter includes:
- 1 New Killer + Perks and Power - Freddy Krueger
- 1 New Survivor + Perks - Quentin Smith
- 1 New Map - Springwood: Badham Preschool
“This place plays tricks on your mind … constantly I question whether I dream or if I am awake. This most recent horrid ghoul seems to bridge that gap – between the states of being awake or asleep. I saw him hunting another poor soul, someone who was not as lucky as me. A man with a hat and a claw clad hand, a scarred man of sorts. He spotted me and what actually happened next is still a mystery to me. Dreams took over, and I was sure to die. But I woke up. Not like in the manner where I awake a the campfire, but instead I just woke up…inside this wretched forest, with memories of nightmares within. I am now afraid to sleep, but also to stay awake.”
The latest chapter comes with a new survivor, a new killer, and a new map.
New Map - Badham Preschool
“The word ‘preschool’ should make you think of laughter and the sound of children’s feet. But this latest structure is the opposite. It represents something dark that ruptures my insides. I do not understand exactly what transpired here. But I get this feeling. A disturbing feeling that in many ways do explain what happened. I have no answers, but I wonder how something cheerful could turn this dark. Filled with catatonic children and crying parents – I can only assume. Benches, desks and chairs now resemble torture devices rather than tools for teaching, playing and learning. I saw a teddy bear when I explored the hallways, and I thought about what it might say if it were alive. Then I left the premises.”
New survivor - Quentin Smith
“I saw a young man the other day. He seemed both awake and asleep at the same time. A bit drowsy, but determined. Even though I lacked to see anyone or anything going after him, he would not stop. I have witnessed true fear many times at this place. But this man provides a whole new spectra of fear. What would make a man too afraid to even stop to take a breathe? He seems determined to reach the gates. I too had that urge once. But I failed too many times to reach them, too many mistakes and deaths. But this young man is different. Maybe he will actually escape. For real. But he looks tired, so intensely tired.”
The latest chapter for Dead by Daylight is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $7.99.
