January 23, 2018 – Starbreeze Publishing, together with Behaviour Digital and global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), today released the “SAW®” chapter for Dead by Daylight. SAW is one of the most successful horror franchises ever, grossing nearly $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
The “SAW” chapter lets players take on the infamous character of Amanda Young, one of Jigsaw’s most well-known protégés, with a brand-new power and feature: the reverse bear trap. In an innovative twist of a classic Dead by Daylight mechanic, Amanda disguised as The Pig can place reverse bear traps on survivors, spicing up the game of cat-and-mouse as every second counts for the survivors to escape. The new survivor introduced in the chapter is David Tapp, a relentless cop set on bringing down The Pig. The two will fight it out inside iconic locations from the films.
The new chapter is available today for $6.99 on Windows PC through Steam and other digital distribution channels as well as on Xbox One and the PlayStation 4® computer entertainment system.
