Dead by Daylight: Nemesis from Resident Evil appears as a killer

Dead by Daylight

In a livestream for the 5th anniversary of Dead by Daylight, Behavior Interactive published details of the crossover chapter with Resident Evil and a trailer that shows the new killer Nemesis in action. After the last expansion "All-Kill", which was disappointing for many fans, the Resi-DLC is now a licensed package for the asymmetrical multiplayer title. Nemesis is one of the most famous monsters of the Resident Evil franchise and even gave the third part of the series its title. The new killer can use a tentacle arm, similar to the plague, to infect survivors at close range. Those who are hit cough, throw up and therefore draw attention to themselves more easily. The more enemies Nemesis infects with the T-Virus, the stronger his tentacle abilities become. In order to heal from the infection, players must consume vaccines that are scattered around the map. However, if all vaccinations are used up, the team of 4 is left with no healing options. A real novelty in Dead by Daylight are also the zombies. These NPCs spawn randomly on the map at the beginning of a round and also attack the survivors.

For the first time since the Stranger Things expansion, Dead by Daylight (buy now / € 9.99) also gets two survivors. With Jill Valentine and Leon S. Kennedy, Behavior has chosen extremely popular characters from the Resident Evil series. The unique perks of the two newcomers also promise to bring variety to the gameplay. While Jill can, among other things, attach a mine to a generator that stuns the killer when it resets, Leon gains the ability to produce a stun grenade in a locker. In addition, a new map finds its way into the game: The Racoon City Police Department. In addition, the short trailer already revealed when the new chapter will be playable: From June 15, the Resi expansion in Dead by Daylight will be downloadable for around 10 euros on PC and consoles.

Resident Evil's Jill, Leon and Nemesis are coming to 'Dead by Daylight'

Dead by Daylight is pretty much the horror version of Fortnite, at least in terms of crossovers. In the five years DBD has been around, Behaviour Interactive has added horror icons including Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, Ash from Evil Dead, Stranger Things' Demogorgon and Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. For its next chapter, DBD is pulling from another classic horror franchise: Resident Evil.

Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine will join the lineup of survivors. There will be a new killer as well in the form of Nemesis (who'll be known as The Tyrant). Nemesis can employ a tentacle for a ranged attack. If he hits a survivor with it, they become infected with the T-Virus. The more Nemesis infects the survivors, the stronger he gets as the reach of his tentacle increases. Infected survivors also cough and it's easier for Nemesis to find them. Survivors can counter the T-Virus with vaccines that are scattered across the maps.

Nemesis will also bea> able to deploy zombies to attack the survivors. They're the first AI-powered enemies to join Dead by Daylight and they'll offer players a new challenge. The zombies can infect survivors with the T-Virus as well.

Not to be completely outdone, Jill and Leo bring new abilities (or perks) to the game. Jill can place landmines on generators that explode when the killer tries to sabotage them. Leon, meanwhile, can spawn flashbangs on the map, which can be use to distract or temporarily blind the killer.

Along with Nemesis, Jill and Leon, a fresh map is on the way. It's based on the Raccoon City Police Department from the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes. Because the team has been focused on upgrading Dead by Daylight's visuals, this will be the first new map since last June.

The Resident Evil chapter DLC pack will be available on June 15th, which is Dead by Daylight's fifth anniversary. It will cost $12. You can also try out the chapter on the current Player Test Build.
