In a recent datamine of the Dead by Daylight files last week, it was revealed that iconic horror villain Freddy Krueger could be coming to the survival horror game. Now, the studio behind the game has all but confirmed that with a recent teaser trailer warning players not to fall asleep.
The video (above) is fairly short, and features a pipe with four scratch marks being dug it into it. For those unaware, that’s a pretty obvious indication of Krueger’s well known claws. For some players, this was just a matter of time, as Dead by Daylight has already seen the likes of Michael Myers and Leatherface join the roster of playable characters. Now, it seems as if Freddy Krueger is ready to join the fray.
No other details were given as to when we expect Freddy to join the game, but given that Halloween is just around the corner and the game has plans to celebrate the holiday with in-game events, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get added sometime soon. In the meantime, make sure to not to lose any sleep over, and be ready to fight Freddy sooner rather than later.
Dead by Daylight is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
