It’s always a good thing when developers can show off milestones for their games. For it shows that they not only made a popular title, but that it continues to sell very well even after launch. Today, Starbreeze Studios revealed that their horror title Dead By Daylight has reached one such milestone, for it has been bought 3 million times. This comes soon after the reveal that the game has been released in Asia for digital download. Still though, quite a feat.
For those who don’t know, Dead By Daylight is a 4v1 game, where four players take the role of prey, while the final person takes the role of a vicious killer, whose sole job is to kill all the other players. The other players have a simple goal as well. They have to try and escape the “Killing Grounds” without being caught. Cause if they do…well…you can guess.

The key here is that every single character (prey and killer included) have their own special abilities that they can use. You must use them in order to stay alive, or get closer to your victory. The other thing that makes it unique is the dynamics. The 4 players can choose to work together in order to survive, or they can use the others as bait to lure the killer away from them, it’s their choice. There’s also a difference in perspective, where the prey see in 3rd person, the killer sees in 1st.
The game has had a ton of interesting DLC, including bringing in classic horror movie villains like Leatherface, and recently Freddy Krueger to help shake things up.
With these sales, you can bet that things will continue to grow even more scary.
