Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight has done fantastically in its 5th year and it doesn't look like it's slowing down, with over 420 million hours played so far. This is on the heels of the game reaching 100,000 concurrent players on Steam for the first time just over a week ago, with an average player count of 56.1k over the last thirty days. Not bad for a slasher game. 

Who are the most popular Dead by Daylight Survivors?

In order, the top three survivors are Claudette Morel, Meg Thomas, and Feng Min. The most popular Survivor Perks in sequential order are Self-Care, Borrowed Time, and Dead Hand. 

The top three chosen survivors actually makes sense if you go by horror movie logic where the 'Final Girl' trope has been a thing for a very long time. Also, sorry but not really for sending you to TV Tropes, because when you next check the time it'll be three hours later and you'll have 40 tabs open. Have fun going down the rabbit hole!

Who are the most popular Dead by Daylight Killers?

The top three Killers from 1st to 3rd are Wraith, Huntress, and Doctor. To add to this, the most popular Killer perks (in order) are Barbecue & Chili, Hex: Ruin, and Hex: No One Escapes Death. 

As for more stats, there has been more than 420 million hours of in-game hours that have been played, more than 1.8 billion sacrifices, over 1.5 Survivor escapes, and 2 billion generators have been repaired. Now we're playing with power!

Oh, and there has also been 474 million kills by original killers and 611 million escapes from original Survivors, which is cool, I guess.
