Wanna Play? Chucky has Arrived in Dead by Daylight

MONTREAL — Nov. 28, 2023 — Your new best friend ’til the end is here and ready to play. The horror icon Chucky has arrived in Dead by Daylight. Starting today, players can traverse The Fog and terrorize Survivors as the infamous killer doll.

It’s About #$@&%*! Time

As a much-requested character by the Dead by Daylight community, the addition of Chucky brings a playfulness to the game that only The Good Guy himself can muster. While it may have been assumed that his smaller size would make it impossible to bring him into The Fog, the team at Behaviour Interactive, in collaboration with Universal Products & Experiences, worked hard to ensure a smooth transition, making him the first Killer to use a third-person camera.

His unique way of tormenting his victims is matched only by his foul and colorful way with words—and it’s fully reflected in this brand-new Chapter. With his unique playstyle and outrageous lines voiced by his original voice actor Brad Dourif, players can expect a faithful recreation of Chucky’s murderous mayhem in Dead by Daylight.

Playing With Dolls

He may be small, but this Killer’s penchant for mayhem should not be underestimated. In fact, his sinister laugh and unforgettable one-liners may be the last thing players hear. With effective tools for sneaking around the Map, Chucky is a force to be reckoned with. His Special Ability, Hidey-Ho Mode, creates Footfalls, a disorienting audio and visual effect that confuses Survivors with sounds and footprints coming from multiple directions.

While in Hidey-Ho Mode, Chucky can execute two unique actions: Scamper and Slice & Dice. Scamper enables Chucky to vault through windows or beneath downed pallets, giving Survivors an unexpected jump scare. The Slice & Dice action on the other hand lets him rush and leap toward Survivors, injuring them with his knife.

It’s true – being The Good Guy has its perks. Straight out of the box, Chucky comes with three unique Perks—each designed to maximize the playful nature of his cruelty. His first Perk, Hex: Two Can Play, Blinds any Survivor that attempts to Stun or Blind Chucky, making sure Survivors think twice before engaging.

His second Perk, Friends, ’Til The End, proves he’s always on the hunt for new friends. When Chucky hooks a Survivor that is not the Obsession, the Obsession will become Exposed, and have their Aura briefly revealed. When the Obsession is hooked, a random Survivor will scream and become the Obsession.

Chucky’s third Perk is Batteries Included. Whenever a generator is complete, entering its vicinity will grant the Killer a movement speed boost for as long as they remain in range, allowing him to catch up to fleeing Survivors.

Suit Up For Scares

The Chapter also arrives with the Friends ’Til The End Collection, which features two iconic Outfits for Chucky.

The Back From The Dead Chucky Outfit (Very Rare) showcases that nothing can keep The Good Guy down. It features Chucky in his iconic resurrected look all stitched up and ready to go, dressed in his classic striped turtleneck and denim overalls.

In addition, The Good Gal Outfit (Legendary) introduces Tiffany, aka the Bride of Chucky, into The Fog. Donning her signature dress and leather jacket, this Outfit comes complete with new lines voiced by the legendary Jennifer Tilly.

Your new best friend is waiting for you. Dead by Daylight: Chucky is available now via Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games Store, Windows Store and Nintendo Switch.
