Dead by Daylight: horror video game teases the addition of Nicolas Cage

A teaser trailer indicates that Nicolas Cage may soon be added as a playable character in the horror video game Dead by Daylight

A couple months ago, it was announced that Blumhouse Productions and James Wan’s company Atomic Monster are teaming up to develop a horror film based on Behaviour Interactive’s global multiplayer horror video game Dead by Daylight – and while we wait to see the movie that’s going to result from this concept, the video game, which will soon be celebrating its 7th anniversary, is still adding new content. In fact, the game’s developers have just unveiled a teaser trailer that appears to break the news that they’re adding an unexpected new character into the mix: Nicolas Cage… as Nicolas Cage? You can watch the teaser at the bottom of this article. It promises that we’ll have more information on the addition of Cage on July 5th.

Here’s some information on the video game: Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed. Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. Since its launch in 2016, Dead by Daylight has reached over 50 million players worldwide, with two million players stepping into The Fog every day. The game features a vast universe where classic horror survives and thrives. Having welcomed iconic characters from TV, film, and gaming, it’s only fitting that the franchise expands to new horizons to tell its story.

Over the years, several horror icons have been added into the game alongside its original killers. This includes Michael Myers, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, Ghostface, Pinhead, and Jigsaw. The game’s list of Survivors includes characters from Halloween (Laurie Strode), The Evil Dead (Ash Williams), and Stranger Things (Nancy and Steve), among others. Somehow Quentin from the Nightmare on Elm Street remake was even given the honor of being dropped into Dead by Daylight. There are also characters from other video games, like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. And apparently, players will soon have the chance to make their way through the maps as Nicolas Cage.
