The popular asymmetrical multiplayer horror experience is getting some interesting Left 4 Dead-themed content, according to a tweet from the Dead by Daylight Twitter account. William “Bill” Overbeck, one of the four playable characters in Left 4 Dead, is entering The Archives, a mode driven by a narrative focus with unique challenges. When new Tomes are added, players have the chance to unlock new cosmetics and content while experiencing some story elements.
The developer says Tome VII: Forsaken is “coming soon,” so we will have to wait for more specifics, but it’ll likely be a popular addition that brings in new and returning players.
Valve’s Left 4 Dead series was incredibly popular on both Steam and Xbox 360. Fans have been clamoring for a sequel for years, which is kind of happening, in a spiritual successor sort of way, with Back 4 Blood. This crossover event may help show Valve how much active interest there is in the IP too; it would be great if they finally learned how to count to 3 and gave us an official third game.
Left 4 Dead is just the latest crossover event in Dead by Daylight. The series has featured Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and famous horror films like Saw, Halloween, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Dead by Daylight may have launched in 2016, but it is still very much alive and has a huge scene on Twitch.
