A big collaboration has been unveiled for Dead by Daylight with Chucky set to enter the game.
Chucky, the infamous killer doll from the cult classic films as well as Universal Content Production’s hit series, will be the game’s newest Killer. This will go live with the Dead by Daylight: Chucky Chapter on November 28, 2023.
Here’s some additional information:
Players should not underestimate the power of this Killer, nor should they underestimate his foul mouth. With new lines voiced by none other than Chucky’s original voice actor Brad Dourif – a question emerges: what is more scathing, his knife or his tongue?
With effective tools for sneaking around the Map, Chucky is a force to be reckoned with, utilizing his Slice & Dice ability to lunge forward and attack unsuspecting Survivors. Though his height does have its limitations, Charles Lee Ray, in his human form, appears as a spirit to assist him in Hooking Survivors, as well as interrupting them while they’re Vaulting or Repairing.
On the other hand, his stature gives him an incredible advantage while hunting, forcing Survivors to always keep both eyes and ears open. His larger-than-life rage and pint-sized build let him vault through windows and under pallets allowing him to close in on his unsuspecting prey, unlike any other Killer before via his Scamper ability. From the iconic rat poisoning scene from Curse of Chucky, the deathly yardstick from Child’s Play 2 or even the electrifying TV from Bride of Chucky, there are a variety of add-ons inspired by iconic moments bringing the franchise to life while elevating action for players.
Players will be able to customize their little Killer through a series of terrifying outfits fit for only the most notorious of serial killers. In a unique twist, players can even go as far as customizing their Killer with The Good Gal outfit – inspired by Tiffany Valentine aka the Bride of Chucky and voiced by the legendary Jennifer Tilly, this outfit brings Chucky’s other half to life like never before.
Universal’s Bill Kispert said of today’s news: “We know Dead by Daylight fans have been clamoring to see Chucky in game and we’ve been dying to make it a reality. It’s the perfect time for Chucky to unleash his particular brand of mayhem upon players in Dead by Daylight, while he also terrifies them in the latest season of the highly entertaining and always shocking USA & SYFY series.”
Behaviour Interactive partnerships head Mathieu Côté added: “It’s a character that I never thought we could bring into The Fog because of his size. The team has outdone itself to prove me wrong. Players are in for a treat – Chucky in Dead by Daylight really is the unmissable multiplayer horror gaming experience.”
Designer Jason Guzzo also chimed in with the following: “Like a tiger on the prowl, you’ll only ever know where Chucky is on his terms; terms that usually involve a knife and his many weapons of choice. He adds such a fun flavor of jump scare to the game, and his voice lines are a darkly comedic twist to the gameplay of Dead by Daylight. It has been an absolute honor to add him to our ever-growing roster of Killers.”
