That Ringu Girl Is Coming To Dead By Daylight
We surmised earlier that Dead By Daylight was leaning more on original characters lately because all the classic ones had been done already. Looks like we forgot one. The vengeful antagonist of the Japanese horror movie Ringu will be added to the game soon.
Take note that this isn’t Samara, the Americanized version that appeared in the 2002 Naomi Watts movie The Ring, nor its lousy sequels. This is Sadako, the OG, possibly because she was cheaper. They’re essentially identical — they dress in white, live in a well, have wispy hair in front of their faces, and make cursed videos in their spare time.
Could Sadako be the next Killer, or not? Will there be a Survivor as well? And who could it be? There’s a lot we don’t know, because this was just an announcement for Sadako’s impending arrival and nothing more. The announcement video is about twenty seconds long.
We also don’t know at this time how Sadako will play or what her abilities will be.
Dead By Daylight is an asymmetrical horror game where one character plays the killer and four others play the would-be victims in its vicinity. The killer has invulnerability and can never truly be stopped, and depending on what character it is, may also have special abilities. The way to win is to escape, and to do so, the survivors must work together to unlock the path to freedom. Dead By Daylight is available now on consoles, PC, and mobile.
