About

This asymmetric multiplayer horror game in which one of the players tries on the role of a brutal killer, while the other four try to escape. Survivors play with a third person perspective, and the killer uses the first-person camera. The game has no singleplayer.

Players can choose from 13 survivors and 12 killers. Each of them differs from each other with own upgrades system and special actions. There is no need to be polite and cooperative - every player for himself. Each level is procedurally generated, and each new round is offering a unique experience. The game engine selects from 10 presets,

The plot of the game tells a story about the supernatural being of The Entity, who created the world and populated it with serial killers. To save players have to perform a number of tasks, which include the repair of generators and other interactions with the items on the map. All actions with objects launch the so-called Skill Check - RNG that decides whether or not the action will be successful.

Dead by Daylight reviews and comments

The game is fun, especially with friends, but the devs are completely incompetent and ruin the game with every update
«Better with friends»
Dead By Daylight is a game similar to Evolve in that it has a group of strong creatures hunting humanity as they attempt to switch on generators that would enable them to escape. On paper, it seems to be a fantastic time, but in practice, it is mostly a mess.

https://www.gamingonline.info/dead-by-daylight-review/
its okay, but it could be so much better.
Journal Style Review:

I played a few rounds as the killer. The idea of a horror slasher multiplayer game is a fun one. I don’t  think this game is that fun though. The gameplay is so basic and doesn’t feel very crisp. Me swinging and misses melee attacks from close range shouldn’t be apart of the game balance. The game mode feels very simple as well. I’ve played as 2 of killers and I may play a few more rounds but that’s going to be it.

Final Score: B-
Desde que eu comecei a jogar, gostei muito desse jogo, e consequentemente se tornou meu jogo preferido. Ele sempre foi um jogo divertido, com vários personagens e mecânicas diferentes, sem contar nos personagens licenciados como Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, etc. A ideia do jogo era grande, porém as últimas atualizações acabaram quebrando o jogo por completo. Desde o ano passado, as novas atualizações trouxeram inúmeros bugs, que só foram corrigidos meses depois. E as atualizações em si foram extremamente desapontadoras, onde os desenvolvedores fizeram várias mudanças sem sentido, como a mudança do movimento dos personagens e a nova HUD, onde a maioria da comunidade odiou, mas no final das contas, o feedback da comunidade foi completamente ignorado, e os desenvolvedores só começaram a voltar atrás quando inúmeras pessoas pararam de jogar o jogo. Outro ponto negativo do jogo é a comunidade em si, pois cada partida pode acabar te enlouquecendo, tanto de assassino quanto de sobrevivente. No lado de assassino, muitos sobreviventes só jogam pelo puro prazer de irritar o assassino, e no lado de sobrevivente, você facilmente vai encontrar assassinos campers e tunnelers (perseguem o sobrevivente que saiu do gancho até ele morrer). Tirando todos esses pontos negativos, esse jogo é muito bom para jogar com os amigos. Por fim, esse jogo poderia ser bem melhor otimizado e os desenvolvedores poderiam ouvir melhor a comunidade, além de pensar primeiro em consertar bugs do que em trazer novos assassinos ao jogo.

«Buggy as hell»
8/10
«Constantly dying and enjoy it»
«Better with friends»
Fairly light on content and very light on modes, Dead By Daylight doesn’t have a lot going on. Though what it does have going it totally nails, making for a satisfying game loop that will keep you coming back.
«Just one more turn»
«Can’t stop playing»
Possibly the most boring game on ps4.

UPDATE: Recently, Survive with Friends doesn't come into Play-there is allegedly a Connection Problem-although in Reality, of course, there is none. That is, you can't play even though you paid Money for it. But hey-that's not bad! After all, the Devs have to think about their Profit and Games don't have to work! Why, too? Furthermore, it is now possible again for the Killers to finish the Game in such a way that they do not lose a Pip. One Lap didn't go the way you like it? Just pull the Cable briefly and quickly put it back in and you punished the evil Survivor and didn't even lose ONE Pip for it. That, of course, is absolutely fair! Plus, there's now a new rank system for the Killers. When you have a good Group playing fair and you're not a lousy Piece of Shit and want to let them out ... Then you lose a Pip! Yes, you can also have made 35,000 Points-it doesn't matter, because you have to kill at least two People now. This System was allegedly introduced to punish the evil Campers-although there are no Campers at all in this Game (of course I only came up with that because I'm "salty"). But With the new Mechanics exactly the Opposite happens-you get animated to Camp (although NEVER JEMALS CAMPEN WUERDE! NEE!) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ It was very funny, creepy, exciting at first-it was the first Game I really wanted. In time, new Killers and new Survivor, Maps, Items and Perks came into Play. It was quickly noticed that the new Content was not tested enough (before Release)-something had to be improved all the time. Perks were made weaker as they were too strong. Killers were made slower as they were too fast, Maps were generated because it offered one Side (Killer or Survivor) more Chances than the other Side. Now I can say that was still okay. What wasn't OK and still is: The Devs promise things they don't keep. For example, It has been promised for half a Year now that the hook mechanics will be changed. If the Killer is near the Hook (as if he is Camping off The Suspended), the Survivor's Life bar does not expire. That was promised. It was never implemented. It was generally promised to do something about Campers-to make the Game fairer. But the Opposite has been implemented:-Hooks come back after 3 Minutes, even though they have been sabotaged. Allegedly to restrict frequent use of ' Iron Grip ' ... Of course, the Killers continue to use the Perk diligently-should you block a Killer because it has Camped you off or insults you in the ensuing Group chat, it doesn't get you anything, because you can't look at the Killers anymore ... The Killers have in Return received a Direct Link to the Profile of Survivor-the Killers have now received a Kind of Acceleration while hunting, so that they can also get a Survivor ... Not to think out if they would suddenly have to start Developing skills-the worse the Killer's Internet Connection, the better for him, because so the Survivor can no longer hide, lags back 10 Metres, runs against Walls and is constantly stuck. In general, the Balance is very unbalanced. While you reward Campers, as a FAIRER killer, you have little chance against a 4-Man group of Rank 1 survivors, all of whom carry purple Flashlights, use "decision making," "beloved Time" and "Unbending." Of Course, as a Survovir you survive the Game and of course you KANN you have Fun at this Game and of course you KANN you be a fair killer and still kill all the Survivor-but that hardly works anymore. It is also due to the DBD community itself. There are 2 Camps: The Main Killers and the Main Survivor. And both Camps hate each other to the Point of blood. Both Camps, by the way, also hate their own Camps, because ... Yes, because they play differently than you do. In short, the Community is a single Cancer. I've invested so much Time and Money in the Game now and I've had, as I said, really fun, but should the Game continue to evolve in such a way that you listen to the bad Players rather than the experienced players who know both side/Stock, I don't see any Point In continuing to play this Game. I can't recommend it to anyone at the Moment to buy this Game either. Unfortunately. Edit: THAT IS HAUPTSAECHLICH A KRITIK TO ENTWICKLERN, NOT TO TIME. THAT SPIEL HAT VERY VIEL POTENTIAL. (I just think it's a shame that a Game with that Potential is so sidelining itself.) Good Job, Devs!

The game is great, though it had lots of issues when it first came out on consoles. Mind though, there is only a multiplayer and no story.
