Dead By Daylight releases another unique “killer” and “survivor” to the character roster. With the recent releases of the Demogorgon, Steve, and Nancy from Stranger Things, GhostFace from Scream, and Ash from The Evil Dead, we haven’t seen a non-licensed character hit Dead By Daylight since the DLC release of the Demise of the Faithful chapter in March of this year.
Earlier this month, fans were engaged by a tweet of a GIF that seemed a bit familiar.
Those who have been following the game for some time were taken back to last year’s Shattered Bloodline chapter, where this clip originated. During that time, fans believed there would be an Oni (ogre or troll in Japanese folklore) character, but were greeted with The Spirit instead.
Now, over a year later, those who were hoping to play a massive ogre character will be delighted in the newest chapter, Cursed Legacy.
The new DLC will unlock a “killer”, Yamaoka Kazan, a “survivor”, Kimura Yui, an exclusive cosmetic for her and a map, the Sanctum of Wrath. It will launch on PC and consoles for USD $7.99 on December 3, 2019.
Currently, PC users have the ability to play on the PTB (Public Test Build) server for free to test the characters.
More about the Cursed Legacy Chapter
Cursed Legacy is closely linked to Shattered Bloodline, a chapter released in 2018. At the time, players were exploring the tale of the Spirit, Yamaoka Rin, a young girl murdered by her father. The new add-on tells the story of her ancestor, Yamaoka Kazan, a Samurai whose wrath ended up drawing the Entity’s attention.
Heir to a famous Japanese swordsmanship school, he sought to surpass his reputation as a warrior by turning his back on honour and family and embarking on a dark pilgrimage of bloodlust. As he waged his personal war against self-proclaimed samurais, he was bestowed with the derogatory and despised nickname of Oni-Yamaoka, a reference to the hideous creature of legend. One day, he met his fate as his former victims took revenge on him. It drew the Entity’s attention and he was deemed worthy of joining its world.
The new survivor, Kimura Yui, was one of the youngest motorcyclists to smash records in unsanctioned street races and the very prestigious Moto Grand Prix of Japan. Breaking with tradition and against her parents’ wishes, she left her home to pursue her dreams and led a gang helping women in troubled situations. Until she found herself shanghaied into another endless race where crossing the finish line is a matter of life and death.
