Pinhead will arrive soon in Dead by Daylight in a new DLC called Hellraiser. Meanwhile, Stranger Things leaves the game in November.
Dead by Daylight Hellraiser DLC available in September 2021
Dead by Daylight continues to add icons from the world of horror movies and video games to its roster of playable characters, and it looks like another one is coming to the multiplayer title soon.
After revealing that Stranger Things DLCs will no longer be available from November, Behavior Interactive recently confirmed that the next Dead by Daylight DLC will be from Hellraiser, and that the iconic Pinhead will become a playable character.
In a statement to Gamespot, the creative director Dave Richard said the following:
“Not only is he highly charismatic, but he also embraces deeply disturbing horror themes, so our fans have been requesting him for a long time. Bringing Pinhead into the Fog is a way for us to give fans something they want, while cementing our reputation as the Hall of Fame of Horror.”
In Dead by Daylight, Pinhead will be able to use a certain skill that will allow him to leave his dimension and travel around the game world. There are currently no other details on its gameplay.
Behavior says the Hellraiser chapter will be released in September 2021 on all platforms, but we don’t know the exact release date of the expansion. However, as of now, PC gamers can try it out on Player Test Build servers.
Dead by Daylight is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.
