“The last couple of years of development have flown by and we’re really proud to finally share our vision: a truly original experience where the fear you feel is real. It was like developing two games at once as the experience is so different depending on the role you want to play.” said Stephen Mulrooney, SVP Publishing at Behaviour Digital.

“Our presence at PAX East with a booth dedicated to showcasing Dead by Daylight marks the perfect opportunity to make the game available for pre-orders while at the same time revealing the final release date of the game. The team at Behaviour Digital Inc. has been working hard and the game has made great progress during the past few months. We’re thrilled to be a mere seven weeks away from launch and look forward to seeing the reception of the game among horror fans who get to try it out.” said Mikael Nermark, COO of Starbreeze Publishing.

Starbreeze and Behaviour Digital Inc. are showcasing Dead by Daylight at PAX East in Boston, USA during the weekend of April 22-24. Visit our booth at #9224 between hall B and C.

    Sdarts So Forza Horizon 3 also benefitted from FM6: Apex. Quantum Break's PC version was Remedy's first foray into DirectX 12 development. And I also agree it seems like it was decided late in the process. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Source: [url] He was referring to Quantum Break on PC. Also, I'm sure Turn 10 shared what it learned from Forza Motorsport 6: Apex with Playground Games (2 Hours ago)

    alimokrane perform very well. I am expecting Gears 4 to follow suit. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane To be honest, QB looks great on XO. the PC port was a fiasco really.. MS shouldnt have forced them to do it. Other games which intended to have a DX12 port well early look great. ReCore and Forza H3 (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Not that DX12 wasn't (isn't?) over hyped :D (2 Hours ago)

    nostradamus AW runs at 10fps on my laptop, when UE3 and other engines thrive running on that shit toaster. (2 Hours ago)
