Behavior Interactive have revealed Chapter 21 of Dead By Daylight will feature content inspired by Hellraiser, with Pinhead as a likely new killer.
The prior teaser showed a TV with static, but fans were able to deduce via clues that the likely candidate was Pinhead from Hellraiser. The 1987 horror film saw a puzzle box unlock a portal to the dimension of the Cenobites; sadomasochistic beings that take utter delight in enduring and inflicting torture.
One of their leaders is Pinhead; revealed in later films to be a former World War I British soldier who had given up on humanity and unlocked the puzzle box. While the new content is coming soon, a Player Test Build will be available today. Those who wish to opt-into the Player Test Build can find instructions here.
