With the additions of Michael Myers, Leatherface and now the apparent introduction of Nightmare on Elm Street’s terrifying antagonist Freddy Krueger, it has many of us wondering about what characters could be added to Dead by Daylight. Whilst the focus usually surrounds killers, of which I’m sure those listed above were heavily requested, there seems to be a lack of suggestions regarding survivors in comparison to killers.
Which is where Alan Wake comes in. The protagonist from the game of the same name would make a rather fitting survivor to be added to Dead by Daylight for a number of reasons. Let’s face it, he’s no stranger to the horror genre, and could potentially be a great addition to the asymmetrical horror experience, which is currently available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
This is a sentiment that is shared with fellow fans of the game on Reddit, one of which has posted a detailed description of how the character would look in DBD, in terms of his character bio and abilities. An excerpt of the character bio reads:
“Trapped in a dark place, Alan was a beacon of light in a sea of darkness. In his search for a way home, Alan stumbled into the grasp of the Entity; an evil that could only be overcome by a champion of light.”
This was put forward by Tawkua on Reddit, and produced the following image detailing his abilities, predominantly focused around light:
