As well as the surprise announcement of a Dead By Daylight-themed dating sim, the horror game’s 6th-anniversary broadcast also broke the news of two forthcoming collaborations for the game- – the first an Attack on Titan collection, and the second a brand new Resident Evil chapter.
Dead By Daylight first collaborated with classic horror franchise Resident Evil this time last year, celebrating its 5th anniversary by adding survivors Jill Valentine and Leon S. Kennedy, as well as villain Nemesis, in a larger Resident Evil-themed chapter. Presently, Resident Evil will be the first franchise to appear in Dead By Daylight twice, with a new tie-in chapter titled Resident Evil Chapter: Project W.

While developer Behavior Interactive hasn’t affirmed what new characters will be introduced as part of Project W, it’s easy enough to speculate that the chapter’s title alludes to the villanous Albert Wesker. All that has been officially announced is that the new chapter will be “featuring even more characters from the legendary horror franchise.”
Behaviour also announced a new Attack on Titan collection, Dead by Daylight’s first anime collaboration. The AoT tie-in is absolutely aesthetic, consisting of 10 unique outfits for both killers and survivors, which will reskin existing characters as Attack on Titan favorites. The full rundown hasn’t yet been uncovered but will include Dwight as Eren, Zarina as Hange, and the Oni as the Armored Titan.
