A Silent Hill crossover is coming to Dead by Daylight
Konami denied reboot claims earlier this year
Behaviour Interactive has announced a Silent Hill crossover for its asymmetrical 4v1 game Dead by Daylight.
The DLC will add iconic villain Pyramid Head, a new map (Midwich Elementary School) as well as a new survivor (Cheryl Mason).
Dead by Daylight: Silent Hill is live now via the Public Test Build on Steam and will be launched on PC and consoles on June 16.
The popular 4v1 horror game, which is said to have surpassed 20 million cumulative players, has featured numerous crossovers in the past, including DLC chapters for Strangers Things, Evil Dead and Saw.
Speaking to IGN, game director Mathieu Cote explained that the latest collaboration came about because Behaviour was already connected to Konami via its Japanese version.
“We were already connected with some of the tentacles of Konami… They are the official publisher of the physical copy [of Dead by Daylight] in Japan. So we were connected to some of the people already,” Cote said.
After a call with Konami, “both sides realized it was a perfect fit” to crossover Silent Hill with Dead by Daylight, he said.
A Konami representative recently labelled claims it’s planning to reboot the Silent Hill franchise in partnership with PlayStation untrue.
According to a report published in March, Silent Hill’s original development leads are helming a new instalment backed by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Masahiro Ito (art director for the series’ first three games), Keiichiro Toyama (director and writer of the original 1999 Silent Hill) and Akira Yamaoka (series composer) were all said to be working on the new project.
It was described as a “soft reboot” of the series developed in collaboration with Sony Japan Studio, the first-party developer which previously helped co-create Bloodborne and The Last Guardian.
