“The box, you opened it, we came.”

The team behind the hit horror game Dead by Daylight have done it once again. It was announced earlier today that Pinhead, from the Hellraiser franchise, will be added to the critically acclaimed game in September.

Hellraiser’s Pinhead is one of the most stunning and memorable characters among all the iconic killers of the horror genre”, says Dave Richard, Creative Director of Dead by Daylight. “Not only is he highly charismatic, but he also embraces deeply disturbing horror themes, so our fans have been requesting him for a long time. Bringing Pinhead into the Fog is a way for us to give fans something they want, while cementing our reputation as the Hall of Fame of Horror.”

Hellraiser is the latest major horror franchise to join Dead by Daylight and marks yet another milestone in an already stellar year for Behaviour Interactive’s action/horror hit. This additional IP arrives on the heels of the Resident Evil Chapter’s huge commercial and critical success, launched alongside Dead by Daylight’s fifth anniversary in June. Those celebrations were themselves followed closely by another landmark moment as Dead by Daylight set a participation record for concurrent players on all platforms with numbers skyrocketing to a high of over 207,000 concurrent users in June.

The Hellraiser Chapter of Dead by Daylight will be available in September via Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Steam, Windows Store, Xbox One as well as Xbox Series X|S. Have a look at the teaser video below and keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on Dead by Daylight.
