Check out this Bodycam Horror ‘Department’ prototype [Video]

Sci-fi horror is all the rage these days, though Contempt, Signalis, Callisto Protocol And the next Greyhill incident All take advantage of the popular trend. until dead space (a franchise that was driven to the ground by its publisher and forced into complete dormancy for nearly a decade) has succeeded in making itself relevant again.

always with his finger on the pulse, Died in broad daylight Looking forward to participating in the next event with Chapter 28 DLC. This impending expansion – which is scheduled to be released on dbCopper Anniversary – Multiplayer will see the game go to the stars and promises to really change things up with new content unlike anything they’ve done before.

And what better way to celebrate seven years of asymmetric bloodshed than by going intergalactic? After all, crossing that final frontier is pretty much an annoying feat for any slasher franchise with legs.

If you can keep money in circulation long enough, eventually you will go into space. These are just the rules. It was only a matter of time back then, before Died in broad daylight in the footsteps Hellraiser, Friday the 13th And leprechaun Kiss her and abandon the borders of planet Earth.

Bringing so much to the table, Chapter 28 will introduce an original map, an extra survivor, and a completely unique killer. To find out more about what lies ahead in the far reaches of the universe, we attended a recent press conference hosted by the developer interactive behaviour.

Here, we gained a deeper look at the DLC’s exotic environments and discovered what makes the new “Singularity” character such an obviously dangerous opponent.

Next year …

Before we get stuck on Chapter 28 (entitled end of transmission), we were briefed on the content roadmap for the next 12 months.

Fans will be happy to hear that they will be treated to a huge treat Six major updates this yearThe first, obviously end of transmission.

After that, there will then be three more completed chapters (adding both licensed and original characters to the roster), as well as two smaller updates billed as “Survivors Only” DLCs.

In terms of chronology, the 2023/24 breakdown is as follows:

  • The first: the end of the transmission
  • Chapter Two: Nicolas Cage (Survivor Only)
  • Third: The authorized separation with the survivor and the murderer
  • Fourth: The authorized separation with the survivor + the murderer
  • V: Survivors Only Chapter
  • VI: The original chapter with the killer + survivor

Along with all this, various quality of life improvements will also be introduced throughout the year.

An anti-camping system will be implemented to promote good sportsmanship and discourage cheap tactics, while a new search bar functionality will enable players to navigate their sprawling inventory more easily.

Even more exciting, however, is the introduction of “Survivor Class Bots”. By swooping in whenever a loser’s agonizing rage subsides or someone encounters crippling network issues, these AI-controlled colleagues will fill the vacancy left behind. They may not be perfect replacements for your fellow human players, but they’ll at least ensure matches continue in some form if the lobby starts to wane for any reason.

The ideal form of life…

Speaking of AI – and the implications for it one day replacing us – it turns out that this will actually be the main theme of the latest DLC.

While many in db The community was understandably hoping for alien Chapter (with a playable Xenomorph), the game’s first foray into sci-fi horror is a completely original affair instead. However, the ideas that will be drawn upon should be instantly familiar to anyone who has watched his films like Terminator, Westworld Or Richard Stanley hardware.

Set in the distant future, the basic premise of end of transmission Is that a group of settlers arrived in a strange and strange world. Hoping to colonize it for humanity, they send a modern artificial intelligence to scout this foreign terrain and identify any potential dangers.

Unfortunately, the robot spaniel ends up learning a lot on his scouting mission and begins to wonder why he was given orders from the fragile sacks of meat in the first place. There are no prizes for guessing what happens next.

As is typical of AI, the machine inevitably comes to the conclusion that humans are just a waste of oxygen and decides to overthrow its masters, capturing them one by one. By the time the DLC opens, this purging process is nearing completion and only one member of the crew is still breathing.

The ensuing confrontation between Gabriel Soma (the new survivor of the chapter) and Singularity (the new killer of the chapter) forms the crux of end of transmission. The trailer sets up the antagonistic dynamic nicely, pairing cutscenes with some Kyle Reese-esque narration from Gabriel.

As he hurtles through an alien rainforest, the terrified astro-engineer lays out everything you need to know about his electronic tormentor: “He’s become self-aware. He has no empathy. You don’t feel pain. He’s learning at an impossible rate and won’t stop until we’re dead. Or worse.”

If you’re wondering what fate could be hinted at here it’s worse than being hacked by a killer bot, Died in broad daylightcreative director, Dave RichardHe was able to clear things up. Speaking of The Singularity’s ghoulish M.O., he said, “As she searched for potential dangers in this unknown world, [The Singularity] I came into contact with ancient alien technology and was later enlightened.”

Having had a profound revelation of sorts, he now single-mindedly sought to grow and gather more strength. It does this by assimilating other pieces of machinery as well as organic matter, hoping that it will eventually become the “perfect life form”.

Richard continued, “This killer is an interesting take on the cyborg idea. We’re used to seeing human characters.” [augment] With technology in science fiction, but the singularity does everything the other way around. It is a piece of software that has decided to merge with the human body in order to increase its strength and mobility. It is in an effort to assimilate every living being in the universe.”

The end result is a grotesque amalgamation of synthetic ingredients and viscera. On the subject of his appearance, you’ll never get a completely pure The Singularity replication (one way or another), but you’ll be able to modify his appearance through various cosmetic options.

According to Richard, there will be different skins to choose from, with some emphasizing the assassin’s robotic qualities, while others suggest that he is slowly being mutated by the planet’s alien flora and fauna.

As for how to play, The Singularity has the ability to spread gelatinous bags around the environment. Known as “bio-pods,” they can stick to almost any surface and be used as a kind of body-horror version of CCTV.

Richard explained: “They allow the killer to project his consciousness elsewhere. By strategically placing these pods, [Singularity players] They can spy on the survivors and even fire projectiles at them. We call this last part the “fandraft effect.” When a survivor hits a propeller shaft, The Singularity can teleport to its location and attack immediately.

“to [counterbalance] This, survivors will gain access to a brand new special item; The EMP. This will be placed in chests around the map whenever you encounter The Singularity and can temporarily and even disable its vital units [negate] fan current effect.

Long distance from home…

Together with the killer and survivor characters, end of transmission It will also introduce a new arena in Died in broad daylightMap rotation. This is the aforementioned jungle planet where Gabriel and his cohorts sealed their collective destiny.

Describing this harsh environment, Richard said: “Toba Landing is a mysterious and strange place. Its flora, fauna and dangerous structure are unlike anything that can be found on Earth. So it will be very different for our players.”

“There were many big themes we wanted to explore when designing this realm. First of all, it was important that it was clearly an alien world. We wanted the player to feel like they were away from home and lost in space.”

Explaining in detail how they succeeded in getting rid of this feeling, he continued: “We’ve taken inspiration from the weirdest things we can find in real-world nature and then tweaked them further to make them feel less familiar. We also added hints of a long-lost alien civilization, as a reminder that even powerful civilizations like ours can disappear and be forgotten.”

Rest assured that there will be some recognizable elements in Toba Landing, as Richard confirmed that all the essential Died in broad daylight The assets will remain intact. He explained, “Our tradition allows that flaps, hooks, and generators can all exist in this futuristic science fiction world.

“The Entity created them so that they could be distributed across all the different domains of the Omniverse for their experiences. So these things look the same for gameplay purposes. That way players can quickly identify them and catch up on the match.”

end of transmission Dead by Daylight arrives on June 13th and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
