Dead By Daylight Adds Even More Resident Evil Characters For Second Crossover Event

Dead by Daylight is getting another Resident Evil crossover for its Project W chapter, adding fan favorites Albert Wesker, Ada Wong, and Rebecca Chambers to the game’s cast of playable characters.

Revealed as part of developer Behavior Interactive’s recent showcase, series villain Wesker will be added to the asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror game as a playable killer, while heroes Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers will be playable survivors. The trio joins already added characters Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Nemesis, who were introduced during the first Resident Evil-themed chapter of Dead by Daylight last year. This chapter also introduced the Raccoon City Police Department map.

There doesn’t appear to be a new Resident Evil-themed map this time around, with Project W’s cinematic trailer set at the Raccoon City Police Department. Behavior Interactive says the chapter will instead feature a “reworked” version of the map based on the iconic Resident Evil 2 location.

Wesker’s look (and his Uroboros tentacles) comes straight from Resident Evil 5, while Ada Wong wears her signature red dress from Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4. STARS member Rebecca Chambers, who appears in the remake original from Resident Evil but also stars in Resident Evil 0, here looks a lot like what she does in those games.

The crossover event doesn’t yet have a release date, with the chapter’s trailer only stating that it’s “coming soon.” The W Project will continue the trend of various horror franchises crossing over into Dead by Daylight, which has also seen events and characters from properties like Silent Hill, Saw, Scream, Halloween, and more in recent years.

In addition to announcing Project W at its recent event, Behavior Interactive also unveiled its new multiplayer FPS Meet Your Maker, where players can team up to attack dungeons filled with various traps created by the game’s community. Closed play for Meet Your Maker takes place on August 23, with registrations available through the game official site.
