I had first found Dead by Daylight in the September of 2019. At the time, Behaviour Studios was partnering with Netflix for a content expansion focusing on the Netflix series Stranger Things. As a fan of said series I was more than eager to give it a try. But unlike some games, Dead by Daylight isn’t learned in an hour. At first I was struggling, still fascinated by the game. Yet with so many elements at play, it was hard to determine just what strategies to apply. There are many choices, as either a killer or survivor.

As time went on and I learned more and more about the game. I no longer felt like I was powerlessly floundering about the Entity’s realm trying to survive. All the elements at play fell into place in my head. This helped me more accurately predict how other players would behave. I gained this understanding of where I needed to be to put an end to a chase. This allowed me to begin to put my own strategies into play. Not just win. But to thrive.

Dead by Daylight in 2022

Now in December of 2022 I still am an active player of Dead by Daylight. A lot has changed since I first have started playing. Daylight still adds completely original and crossover content regularly. The playerbase is still active and growing, so don’t think you’ve missed out with Dead by Daylight. Don’t worry – there’s plenty more content to come. Likewise, with the recent addition of a proper tutorial new players no longer will feel lost starting out as me. Even then, various content creators such as Oztdarva have plenty of content available to understand the game in a competitive or professional sense. In conclusion, I think Dead by Daylight is a really great game to play if you feel brave enough to venture into The Entity’s realm.

Dead by Daylight is available to play at the cave, so come on in!
