Stranger Things is an incredibly popular IP, and in September 2019, it came to Dead by Daylight in Chapter 13. However, this chapter’s content has since been removed, leaving many unsure whether they can use their Killers and Survivors. This guide explains if you can still get the Demogorgon and other Stranger Things content in Dead by Daylight.
Can you still buy the Demogorgon?
The Demogorgon was a popular monster to play in Dead by Daylight, but as of November 17, 2021, the Stranger Things DLC, Dead by Daylight Chapter 13, was removed to buy. The Demogorgon, therefore, is no longer available to purchase but can still be played in-game by anyone who bought this content before it was removed. Likewise, the Survivors Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington also can’t be purchased but can still be used by those who bought them before the content was removed from storefronts.
Why was Stranger Things removed from Dead by Daylight?
Developer Behaviour Interactive lost the license to the Stranger Things series for use in Dead by Daylight. If the Montreal developer ever wanted them back to coincide with the launch of the show’s last season, they certainly could. They would just have to renegotiate a deal with the copyright holders at Netflix. Dead by Daylight players were so put out by the removal of the DLC that they started a petition to bring it back.
Can you still play as the Demogorgon?
Anyone who purchased Chapter 13, the Stranger Things DLC, for Dead by Daylight before it was removed can still play as the Demogorgon and use the Survivors that were part of it. You’ll need to download the DLC each time you download the game, and you will be restricted to the platform you purchased the DLC on. For example, you can’t use the DLC on PlayStation 5 if you bought it on Nintendo Switch. As long as you own it and have downloaded the content, you can play as the Demogorgon and both Survivors when you load up Dead by Daylight.
