Fans of the asymmetrical horror game Dead by Daylight are no stranger to crossovers. The game features its own cast of iconic characters, but also receives a generous amount of content from other fan-favorite horror franchises. Micheal Myers, Sadako, and the cast of Stranger Things are just a few cross-over characters featured in Dead by Daylight, but new leaks suggest a whole new crossover fans of Fortnite and Dead by Daylight alike didn’t see coming.
Coming from @iFireMonkey on Twitter, it would seem that the team at Behaviour (the developers of Dead by Daylight) have been working on content for a potential crossover with the Fortnite team.
As seen in the Twitter post, this potential crossover will feature in-game cosmetics for both Dead by Daylight and Fortnite, truly bridging both games in this event.
On the Dead by Daylight side of things, players would be able to unlock a festival Fortntie Llama Pinata charm for their hooks, making each sacrificed survivor feel like a victory royale.
For Fortnite, players would be able to buy a Meg Thomas skin, allowing them to play as one of DbD’s iconic original survivors as they fight other players for the number 1 spot.
This crossover seems alien to most, with Dead by Daylight being the last thing many players would expect to see in Fortnite. This trade may not have come from nowhere like it seems, however, as Epic Games recently held a development program, teaching companies how to market their products in Fortnite. It could very well be that Behavior’s team took part in this program, and are seeking to use their new knowledge to advertise their own game with Fortnite as the medium.
