Dead by Daylight players might soon be playing a different kind of game.
Following the arrival of Michael Myers, Leatherface and Freddy Kruger last year, developer Behaviour Interactive has now teased Jigsaw of the infamous Saw films as the next killer to join the sinister roster.
Yesterday, Behaviour posted a new teaser trailer featuring a ticking timer, a mannequin head and what appears to be the reverse beartrap synonymous with Saw before the words “Let’s play a game” end the video.
While the appearance of a Saw character (possibly Jigsaw himself) is all but certain, quite how that killer would integrate into Dead by Daylight‘s gameplay is open to debate.
Dead by Daylight stars a group of 4 survivors as they sneak around various maps attempting to fix a total of 5 generators in order to open a gate and evade the attention of a maniac killer looking to sacrifice them for the Entity. The open and often quick pace of the game would seemingly rule out Tobin Bell’s aged character as the original Jigsaw, while the very nature of the game would also likely rule out Billy the tricycle riding puppet, though we would have loved to have seen that show. The only likely option then that would fit in with DbD‘s gameplay style would be the masked Pig, a character who usually appears to kidnap potential victims for Jigsaw in the films.
Whatever Behaviour decides on, we’re officially intrigued. Check out the teaser down below.
