After adding Halloween’s Michael Myers as DLC, Behaviour Digital acknowledged early last month that conversations about more licensed horror characters had taken place and could be on the way. The game’s producer, Mathieu Cote, had this to say:

“We are in a position where we’ve talked to a few license holders about a few possible licenses, and we’re open to it. Our universe that we’ve created, the lore needs to lend itself some specific licenses joining us.”

Making good on that teaser, Starbreeze Publishing, together with Behaviour Digital, announced the addition of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s Leatherface as a killer in Dead by Daylight. He wields his iconic chainsaw and a sledgehammer, which both do some major damage. Leatherface also brings a new set of perks, which are:

Knock Out
The trauma caused by your brutal attacks makes crying for help painfully difficult. Dying survivors’ auras are not revealed to other survivors when they are standing out of range.

Barbecue & Chili
A deep bond with The Entity unlocks potential in one’s aura reading ability. After hooking a Survivor, all other Survivors’ aura are revealed to you for 3 seconds when they are further than 36 meters from the hook. Grants bonus Bloodpoints on any scoring event while a Survivor is on the hook.

Franklin’s Demise
Your vicious attacks make the Survivors drop their item on impact. The lost item is damaged in the fall, losing a portion of its base amount of charges.

The price for the DLC is $3.99 and is currently only available on Steam. Leatherface will soon be available for console. If you’ve been wanting to try out the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game, now is the perfect time. Dead by Daylight is free on all available platforms- Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam- until September 17th. It is also 50% off, along with select DLC, during this time on Steam.
