Dead by Daylight is a survival horror game that was released on June 14, 2016. Players can play as either the killer or one of four survivors. Throughout its lifetime, the game has introduced some familiar faces from horror films such as Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Throughout its life, people have gone “data mining” in the game’s files, and have found many different things. They have seen upcoming DLC, and even unused materials and content. Recently, someone went data mining and found something that caused many to get on the edge of their seats. They found files that named the next killer as “The Sandman.” Not only did they find that, but they also found audio files showing what “The Sandman” sounds like. Its voice strikes a stunning resemblance to that of Robert Englund’s Freddy Krueger. Not only did the audio files have his voice, but it had a song as well. The song is perfectly in tune with the lullaby sang by the jump rope girls in A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Yesterday, the Dead by Daylight Youtube channel posted a video titled “Dead by Daylight: Don’t Fall Asleep.” This gives it away if you’ve ever watched a Nightmare on Elm Street film. It is a commonly used phrase in the series, since Krueger kills his victims in their dreams. The trailer is relatively short. We open in on a rusted pipe. Four slices are dragged down the pipe, like Freddy would do with his bladed glove. Then there is one more slice dragged across to make it the five tally, which is the symbol for Dead by Daylight. After this, the screen fades to black, and all that is seen are the words “Never Sleep Again.” This teaser almost fully confirms the next killer to be Freddy Krueger.
This isn’t the Dead by Daylight crew coming out and saying that it’s Freddy Krueger, but it can be assumed. There is no set date for the upcoming DLC, but if the teaser is being released now, it can’t be too long. This should be a great addition to the game and provide players with another great horror icon to play as!
