Developers of Dead by Daylight unveiled plans to offer cross-play and cross-progression in the game.
Studio Behaviour Interactive have announced that Dead by Daylight will soon be having cross-play, among PC and consoles. The game has amassed a large, devoted community demanding the cross-play feature from the devs.
The news was released in an official blog. They have been running extensive tests to ensure that no other aspects of the game are harmed. Furthermore, players will have the freedom to disable cross-play if they like. When the feature goes live, players will be able to invite and play with friends across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Although Dead by Daylight is also on mobile; crossplay with mobile will not be supported, at least yet. Additionally, the game will also be coming to Google Stadia this September.
Another info they mentioned in the blog is that they cannot fully guarantee whether cross-progression will be available among all platforms. So at the start, only Steam, Google Stadia, and Nintendo Switch will be offering the feature.
Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game, released on Steam in 2016. Soon after, it was available on Microsoft Store and then on consoles. Steam and Microsoft Store already have crossplay enabled, and now console players will soon be joining the party. We hope the devs can bring the mobile community in too.
It is a good sign that more and more multiplayer games are getting cross-play as a feature. It makes the experience more enjoyable and diverse.
