A new chapter, titled ‘A Binding of Kin’, has been launched by Behaviour Interactive for Dead by Daylight fans. The latest chapter offers a very unique killer.

Dead by Daylight: A Binding of Kin is available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Steam, Windows Store, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Coming to the uniqueness featured in the latest content, the killer is known as The Twins and is comprised of two characters that can each be controlled individually.

Here’s the official description:

Born in 17th century France, conjoined twins Charlotte and Victor Deshayes grew in a world that would be cruel and relentless in its pursuit to destroy them. Watching their mother being burned alive was only the beginning: being captured by a cult and living in sewers as pariahs developed their disdain for humanity. Victor, still attached to his sister’s body had died and was rotting away when a thick Fog enveloped them and miraculously, he detached from her and started running towards the unknown. The Entity had summoned them for all eternity.

Of course, players also get a new Survivor. Named Élodie Rakoto, she’s described as “Smart, cunning and defiant.”

The description reads:

She grew in Paris but her heart remained in her parents’ home country of Madagascar. During a trip to Dyer Island her parents mysteriously disappeared into the Abyss. Élodie would spend the next 14 years diving into the occult; searching for an explanation. Through her valuable research she became of interest to The Black Vale, a group of occult fanatics. As she was trying to escape their hold, she felt herself falling into…the Abyss.

To celebrate the release of the newest chapter, the Holiday Horror Collection is expanding its offerings with two very rare outfits meant for the newest Killer and Survivor (there’s a reindeer-themed onesie for Élodie).

A legendary set for The Trapper will also be released. There are also new and festive cosmetics for Dwight, Ace, Zarina, Claudette, and Jake.

Finally, the Dead by Daylight’s Advent Calendar is also a go! Every day until January 2, 2021, players will be able to take advantage of in-game gifts including ugly sweaters, Holiday-themed charms, and more!

As for the graphical update (which continues as part of The Realm Beyond campaign), the team has reviewed the five maps of the Autohaven Wreckers, as well as snowy Ormond. The totem, the hatch, and the flashlight have also been “vastly” improved. The current update is available for free to all players, on every platform.

Also, the Killer (Freddy Krueger) and Survivor (Quentin Smith) from the iconic Nightmare on Elm Street chapter are now available on PS5, Stadia, Switch, and the Windows Store.
