Nicolas Cage is coming to Dead by Daylight on July 25th in a new chapter all about Nicolas Cage

From Press Release:

Montréal, CANADA – July 5, 2023 – The wait is over. Starting today, gaming fans and movie enthusiasts alike can personify the iconic actor Nicolas Cage in the Public Test Build, available only on Steam, as a destined Survivor fighting for his life in Dead by Daylight. This marks the first time that a public figure joins the game, playing a fictionalized version of himself.

A Thespian in the Entity’s Cage

After countless awards and over one hundred movies shot across the globe, Nicolas Cage had seen it all and done it all – or so he thought. While on set filming the role of a lifetime, his performance summoned The Entity, a malevolent being of incomprehensible power. The actor soon found himself cast in otherworldly Fog, forced to survive a host of terrifying Killers deadlier than even the most scathing film critic.

A Performance to Die for

Fans have watched him – now they can become him, enjoying three brand-new character Perks that open the door for engaging new gameplay:

  • With Dramaturgy, players will allow their instincts to take over during moments of heightened intensity. They might not be able to predict the outcome, but that’s what makes it so thrilling, isn’t it?
  • Every actor needs a Scene Partner. When using this Perk, staring at the Killer will grant players a deeper insight into their process, allowing them to better anticipate their next move.
  • Finally – a Plot Twist in the third act can really breathe new life into film and Trial alike. Players will use their second-to-none acting ability to get deeper into character than ever before, making a bold decision that’s as risky as it is rewarding.

A Legend Amongst Legends

Nicolas Cage is an actor, director, and producer whose remarkable versatility has led to great success across all genres for over four decades. Cage’s work has been tremendously well received by both audiences and critics alike.

“To say we are thrilled to have Nicolas Cage join the gaming world for the first time with Dead by Daylight is an understatement,” says Mathieu Côté, Head of Partnerships for Behaviour Interactive. “Mr. Cage recorded all his voice lines and was involved every step of the way; his dedication to his craft and professionalism is unmatched. We feel very privileged to have him and to our players: you’re in for a treat!”
