Behavior Interactive is going to launch a new Tome for their 4 v 1 asymmetrical horror game Dead by Daylight. This Archive is called Escalation, and will allow players to unlock memories from Dwight Fairfield’s “A Story by Any Other Name,” The Huntress’ “A Lovely War,” Kate Denson’s “Back to Zero” and The Legion’s Soldiers of Mayhem.
What do the Archives do? Well, they "... aim to deepen every player's Dead by Daylight experience by delivering fun and exciting content into the Fog." Players will discover new secrets about The Entity and The Observer through a new Tome and also find a new Rift every mid-chapter that will only be around for a short while. Players will be able to finish new Master Challenges to progress further through the Tome and their Rifts. Every Tome will have several Levels, with each containing a new layout for the Auris Web and Rift Fragments, Challenge, lore Entries, and Bloodpoints.
Between April 29 and May 6, Tome III will come with free rewards, along with a 30% sale on characters such as Kate and Legion. The Spring Harvest Collection for the Spring and Feng will also be a part of this update.
As someone who doesn't play Dead by Daylight, writing this was pretty confusing. There's a storyline in that serial killer game? I'm almost curious enough to check it out, because while the storylines are probably not high art or anything, having them in there to begin with is intriguing.
