Leatherface Revs up His Chainsaw to Join Dead by Daylight

Asymmetrical multiplayer games are gaining popularity, especially horror-themed ones. Friday the 13th is a highly-successful Kickstarter project that lets gamers slip on the hockey mask of the Camp Crystal Lake killer Jason Voorhees and hunt their friends (or vice versa), and Last Year is an upcoming game in the same vein but with a new villainous protagonist who stalks the halls of a high school. However, Dead by Daylight remains one of the better asymmetrical multiplayer horror games thanks to its bevy of creepy locations and playable characters, the latest of which is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s iconic Leatherface.

Like other asymmetrical multiplayer horror games, Dead by Daylight places four players in the roles of innocent teenagers (the Survivors) and pits them against one player who controls an evil monster or a deranged, psychopathic human (the Killer). The goal of the Survivors is to, well, survive and escape, and all the Killer needs to do is hunt down the Survivors and kill them by sticking them on giant meat hooks.

As The Texas Chainsaw Massacre fans would expect, Leatherface wields his signature chainsaw as he hunts down more victims, but it isn’t the only tool at his disposal. Like other Killers in Dead by Daylight, Leatherface comes with his own set of perks. The first, Knock Out, doesn’t let Survivors know the location of his victims (if they are too far away). The second perk, Barbecue & Chili, grants Leatherface temporary awareness of the general location of opposing players after sticking a Survivor on a hook, but only if the opposing players are more than 36 meters away. Letherface’s third and final perk, Franklin’s Demise, forces Survivors to drop an item whenever they’re attacked, which damages the item.

Leatherface isn’t the only guest character to appear in Dead by Daylight, as Halloween’s Michael Myers was patched into the game on October 25th last year, albeit as paid DLC. However, Leatherface’s inclusion demonstrates Myers wasn’t just a one-off cameo and that the developers at Behaviour Interactive are trying to include as many classic slasher killers as possible. With luck, we might soon see the likes of Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Pennywise the Dancing Clown (the Bill Skarsgard version, not the Tim Curry version), and Ghostface from Scream in the game.

Leatherface is currently available for only $3.99, but the good news does not stop there. Gamers can play Dead by Daylight for free for the next several days, and the game is also on sale for $9.99. However, this deal won’t last long, so take advantage of it while you can.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Activision has recently started teasing the upcoming Call of Duty game, captivating fans with a mysterious website and a tantalizing short clip. In this intriguing snippet, the slogan “The Truth Lies” is cleverly superimposed over the eyes of the iconic former USA presidents at Mount Rushmore. The website showcases a vintage television set where users can indulge in a variety of clips across six different channels. Below, you’ll discover the website link and an intriguing video showcasing Mount Rushmore.

Treyarch is the company behind the most recent game, which is likely to be another entry in the Call of Duty Black Ops subseries. The newest rumors indicate that the upcoming release is titled Black Ops 6 and is set to hit the shelves in October. Following the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9, 2024, a full reveal will be unveiled.

Billbil-Kun, a former PS Plus leaker, joined in by sharing what they believe to be a blurred image of the game’s key art. The scene reveals a discernible figure amidst a vibrant orange hue. Allow me to present the picture:

With Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision, it seems that the company is poised to fulfill its promise of including the upcoming Call of Duty game in the Xbox Game Pass bundle. Nevertheless, adjustments will be necessary for the membership service to accommodate it, potentially resulting in a price increase. The title will be released as per usual on both the PS5 and PS4. Are you eagerly anticipating this year’s release? Feel free to leave your initial thoughts on the teaser- theme in the comments section.

Continuing the legacy of Baldur’s Gate 3 falls into the hands of a different studio, as Larian Studios moves on to focus on their own original intellectual property. Given the studio’s impressive track record, there is a great deal of anticipation surrounding their upcoming project. The team allegedly experienced immense pressure when embarking on their enigmatic upcoming project, and founder and CEO Swen Vincke expresses gratitude that the studio has successfully overcome that initial obstacle.

In an interview with GamesRadar+ after the Digital Dragons conference in Poland, Vincke discussed the immense pressure the developers experienced when trying to follow up on the success of BG3: “In a pivotal moment, we found ourselves under immense pressure, but I confidently declared, ‘Team, let’s cast aside all distractions and focus on the task at hand.” Isn’t that correct? We’re going to create another game. “And we’ll prioritize that.”

Expanding on the topic, Vincke emphasized that the studio’s upcoming project must be a game that the developers themselves would be eager to play. Although it may appear daunting, the developer’s gut instinct has carried them this far. “Clearly, it’s a highly ambitious endeavor.” If we are unable to trust our instincts due to overwhelming external pressures or the fear of meeting people’s expectations, our chances of success will be slim, resulting in a catastrophic outcome. Our main priority should be creating a game that we genuinely enjoy playing. And if it’s that, then we’ll be fine.”

What are your expectations for Larian Studios’ future projects? Can you even fathom the daunting task of attempting to create a successor to BG3 from the ground up? Take the time to carefully articulate your thoughts in the comments section below.

The First Descendant is an impressive co-op looter shooter that has caught our attention. It is a game that has the potential to be similar to Destiny, and its visuals are truly breathtaking, especially considering it runs on Unreal Engine 5. Along with a thorough explanation of the game’s lore, the developers themselves treated us to a story trailer. However, the game’s setting still remains enigmatic, thanks to the overwhelming presence of unique names and overused genre tropes.

According to our findings, the turmoil started approximately a century ago when the Vulgus, interdimensional beings, emerged. They wreaked havoc on society, capturing humans for sacrificial and experimental purposes. Furthermore, the sudden appearance of the Colossuses resulted in the complete destruction of the planet. The remaining humans congregated in Albion, bracing themselves for the ultimate showdown.

The Magisters, a particular group of Vulgus renowned for their exceptional technical prowess, were with them. Through a collaboration with the Magisters, a fascinating gene called “Arche” has been unearthed in select individuals, granting them the ability to tap into incredible powers passed down from their forebears. The “Descendants” possess extraordinary abilities, allowing them to effortlessly defeat numerous Vulgus enemies. When they combine their powers, they can even bring down the colossal Colossuses.

What are your thoughts on The First Descendant? Does it capture your attention? Get ready to face hordes of adversaries as you navigate the comments section from a third-person viewpoint.
