Dead by Daylight announces massive graphical overhaul, latest on cross-progression
Behaviour Interactive today announced that it will be updating Dead by Daylight with a massive graphical overhaul. Improvements will be made to lighting, visual effects, modeling, textures, and animations. Additional props will be added to maps as well, along with functions to make rooms “more identifiable.”
Here’s the full notice regarding the graphical overhaul:
Dead by Daylight is undergoing a major graphical update that will be available for free for all players, on all platforms. The ultimate goal is to improve the immersion tenfold, making the environments as realistic as a scary, disturbing nightmare. The lighting and VFX will be vastly upgraded, as well as the modeling, textures and animations. More props will be added to the maps, and proper functions will be given to rooms to make them more identifiable.
The development team is fully focused on this rework and visual improvements will be delivered every six weeks, following the current Chapter and Archives roadmap. Over the coming months, tens of thousands of assets will be enhanced as part of this overhaul. Common items such as lockers, generators, palettes, as well as two maps, can be expected as part of next week’s patch.
Dead by Daylight recently received cross-play, but cross-progression is still coming as well. Behaviour Interactive provided an update on this today as well:
Following the Cross-Play and Cross-Friends announcement earlier this summer, Behaviour is happy to follow suit with Cross-Progression on Stadia, Switch and Steam using the brand new BHVR Account. Again, using the Behaviour Account, players will be able to carry their progression from one platform to another, from a casual trial curled up on the couch to a more intense escape in front of their PC.
“The game you know and love is stepping into the future. The team has been focused on this plan for an entire year and we’re so excited to bring you Dead by Daylight as you’ve never seen it before, while still offering new Chapters and Archives. This is ambitious, and we’re ready.” said Mathieu Côté, Game Director, Dead by Daylight.
Dead by Daylight is available now on Switch.
