He’ll Tear you Apart – Pinhead Joins Dead By Daylight
It’s been on the cards for years, but now it’s a disturbing reality, Pinhead is set to join Dead by Daylight. Joining the killer ranks of Michael Myers, Leatherface, Freddy Kruger, Ghost Face and Jigsaw, Elliot Spencer, or “The Cenobite”, will be playable killer in the popular asymmetrical multiplayer horror game.
For anyone who has yet to play the dark survival game, you play either as one of four survivors or as a single killer. As a survivor, you must team up with the other players to complete generators which will allow you power up the exit gates and escape the map, whilst the killer is charged with preventing this from happening. Every killer comes with their very own perks and attacks that makes each one a different challenge.
The deep lore of Dead By Daylight has the events of the game taking place in an Omniverse, where different realities collide, which is why other characters such Nancy, Steve, and The Demogorgon from Stranger Things can exist next to Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2. Pin heads arrival continues developer Behaviour Interactive’s excellent track record for securing AAA franchise rights.
The Cenobite comes with his own abilities such as teleportation and a Lament Configuration box which acts as secondary challenge for all players. He;s currently available to play on the DBD Public Test Build, which gives players early access and developers to see new creations in the wild, giving them time to fine tune abelites and iron out bugs before the new content is released.
His lore reads
A demon to some, an angel to others. Pinhead is an explorer in the further regions of experience, indulging in the limitless thrill of pleasure and pain. When the puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration — a key to another dimension — was found in The Entity’s Realm, it was only a matter of time before it fell into curious hands. Once opened, he arrived. What came next was sweet suffering that spilled over the Realm.
Sadly, there are no survivors joining the The Cenobite, nor is there a map, but that doesn’t take any of the joy away from having such a prominent character; and one that I’ve never seen in a video game, spliced into the game. Look for Pinhead soon, as he should arrive in the in-game store within the next month.
