Still planning on an E3 article sometime this month. At the end of this month is Gamescom 2018 hopefully we’ll get to see the Cyberpunk 2077 demo shown behind closed doors at E3.


Dead By Daylight

The horror game Dead By Daylight is free this month for Playstation Plus. Players can either chose from 12 different killers (including Leatherface, Micheal Myers, Freddy Krueger and Amanda Young from Saw) each with their own abilities, or they can choose from 14 different survivors (including Laurie Strode from the Halloween movies).

Killers play against four different survivors in 24 maps in 10 different maps, some areas based off famous locations from movies like Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The developers of the game plan to release 3 more killers and 3 more survivors in the coming months. As of yet I don’t know if the characters like Micheal Myers or Freddy Krueger are part of the free game or still paid DLC, the games for this month don’t go free on Playstation Plus until later this week.
