Hello, People of the Fog.

Think you know what a traditional Dead by Daylight chapter looks like? Think again. With our latest release, we’re taking a hard left off the classic horror highway to explore the world of K-Pop. And while the colors may be a little brighter on the surface, in true Dead by Daylight form, that just means there’s an even deeper darkness lurking below. Creative Director Dave Richard shares his thoughts on All-Kill and pushing the boundaries of the game’s aesthetic.


Associate Brand Manager Thomas Carpentier: Was K-Pop always the intended theme, or was the goal to explore the music industry as a whole? 

Creative Director Dave Richard: K-Pop was the main inspiration for the All-Kill Chapter since Day 1. We always try to explore new things in the game, whether that’s with characters, themes, perks… The vibrant and highly polished aesthetic of K-pop culture juxtaposed with Dead by Daylight’s sick, grim world is alluring. We saw it as an opportunity … Read the rest
