Dead by Daylight reveals D&D killer, Vecna

Dead by Daylight, Vecna, Dungeons and Dragons

Dead by Daylight has announced their latest killer, finally revealing the long-teased Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) licensed killer, Vecna.

For a few weeks now, the team at Behaviour Interactive has been teasing the new killer, and with mixed reaction. Some fans think that veering into medieval fantasy is too far of a departure from the game’s iconic horror. After all, other licensed killers include Chucky from Child’s Play, Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Michael Myers from Halloween and more.

Vecna is a powerful lich originating from the Greyhawk campaign setting. His hand and eye are infamously powerful magical items that tend to appear across campaign settings in one form or another.

A new survivor, Aestri Yazar is also coming.

Dead by Daylight is available now on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, and iOS. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
