It’s always interesting to see what games arrive from the minds of those that are inspired by other titles. Case and point, today, a new mobile game arrived in the form of Identity V. This 4-v-1 title was inspired by the hit game Dead By Daylight, but with the twist that the gameplay format would not be used in a mobile format. Developed by Netease, with the help of the Dead By Daylight team, the game was previously released in China, and was a big hit, and now, it’s seeking the same fame elsewhere.
The team had to work very hard on marking the game work within its mobile constraints. This hadn’t been attempted on this scale before, so there was a lot to go wrong. They focused on both gameplay and how players moved in order to ensure both smoothness and retaining the tension.
Like Dead By Daylight, you’ll be playing as either one of the four “survivors”, or, playing the “hunter” trying to take them all down.
“We are truly ecstatic to be the first to bring a high-quality asymmetrical multiplayer game to mobile,” said Sylar Pan, product manager for Identity V. “Mobile technology is constantly growing, and more amazing gameplay experiences are possible each day. We wanted to create something unique, innovative, and most importantly, fun to play in the mobile space and with Identity V, I believe we have done that.”
The game is free-to-play for both Android and iOS. You can check out a clip of the game below.
