A new video showcases the new Dead by Daylight Resident Evil skins added to the game. This past summer, Capcom celebrated its 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise. A collaboration between Capcom and Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive brought over Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, and Nemesis from Resident Evil 3 to the game.
Chapter 20 of Dead by Daylight introduced both Jill Valentine and Leon S. Kennedy as playable survivors. Claire and Chris Redfield are respective legendary skins for the two survivors, although it changes Jill and Leon into the Redfield siblings. Nemesis appears as a playable Killer that can boobytrap generators, use a tentacle whip, and infect survivors with the Contaminated debuff. A new map also joined the game with the Raccoon City Police Station.
In a new trailer on Dead By Daylight’s YouTube channel, Behavior Interactive put new skins for Nemesis, Jill Valentine, and Leon S. Kennedy on display. Of the skins shown, the Nemesis Blight skin is the only original skin in the DLC pack. Nemesis Blight changes Nemesis into a pulsating, seeping orange growth-covered behemoth that’s more menacing than the hulking monster already is. Jill Valentine’s Impervious Agent skin is her outfit from the original Resident Evil 3, and Leon S. Kennedy’s Persistent Investigator skin is from his adventures in Resident Evil 4.
In addition to these skins, the trailer introduces a new option for players to buy everything shown in the video— the Resident Evil Collection pack. Previously, players could only purchase the legendary skins for Jill and Leon individually. According to Dead by Daylight’s website, Capcom provided Behaviour Interactive with the model assets from the recent Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes to make all of these outfits.
What’s interesting about the assets from Capcom is Leon’s Resident Evil 4 outfit, which isn’t in either of the remakes. This inclusion could mean that the rumored Resident Evil 4 Remake is already in development since the outfit exists already. Another option is that Behaviour recreated the outfit itself, which is plausible with Dead by Daylight‘s recent recreation of Pinhead from the classic horror film Hellraiser.
Behaviour Interactive doesn’t seem like it plans to stop adding content to Dead by Daylight anytime soon. Previous collaborations saw some of the most iconic horror figures enter into the trials and terrorize the survivors. With the new Chucky reboot out, it could be a matter of time before the Entity decides that it’s time for Child’s Play.
Dead by Daylight is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
