Hellraiser joins horror legends in Dead by Daylight

This is the latest in a string of cult horror protagonists that have been introduced to the game. Pinhead joins horror icons such as: Michael Myers from Halloween; Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street; and Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Fans have had mixed reactions to Pinhead joining Dead by Daylight – with many critical that the iconic Hellraiser character has been added without any dialogue lines.

As well as the new Hellraiser content, Behaviour Interactive is rolling out a release which will introduce skill-based matchmaking to Dead by Daylight. The new features have the potential to shake up the multiplayer survival horror. Dead by Daylight has been trialling this system for a while, but the latest update will make this feature available to all permanently.
