Internationally acclaimed actor Nicolas Cage is poised to become the newest entrant to the chilling world of Dead by Daylight, a renowned asymmetric multiplayer horror game. Known for its collaborations with myriad horror franchises and their iconic characters, Dead by Daylight first graced our screens in 2016 and has since maintained a steady flow of new maps, survivors, and killers to keep players enthralled.
Throughout its existence, Dead by Daylight has fearlessly ventured into the realms of cinematic and gaming franchises alike. From the spine-chilling vibes of Resident Evil and Stranger Things to the classic horror presences like Leatherface of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Freddy Kreuger from Nightmare on Elm Street, Dead by Daylight serves as a melting pot for almost every imaginable horror franchise.
The Teaser: Speculating Nicolas Cage’s Role in Dead by Daylight
In a recent video snippet, Dead by Daylight announced the inclusion of celebrated actor Nicolas Cage into its ever-growing repertoire of characters. Cage, lauded for his stellar career in Hollywood, has been particularly commended for his performances in an array of horror flicks spanning decades. Whether it’s earlier films like Vampire’s Kiss (1988) or The Wicker Man (2006), or more recent, avant-garde horror entries like Mandy (2018), Colour Out Of Space (2019), or even Willy’s Wonderland (2021), Cage has successfully carved out his unique niche within the horror fanbase.
The big question remains – will Cage join the ranks of killers or survivors in the eerie universe of Dead by Daylight? Given his commanding screen presence, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to see him cast as one of the game’s formidable killers. However, the teaser doesn’t hint at any monstrous traits, so there’s a strong possibility that Cage will join the survivor team. Regardless of his role, there’s little doubt that Cage’s inclusion will bring a plethora of iconic one-liners and references from his extensive filmography.
Dead by Daylight, in its movie collaborations, typically leans towards the slasher subgenre. Therefore, the decision by developer Behaviour Interactive to recruit an actor not typically associated with slasher films is intriguing. Nicolas Cage isn’t the game’s inaugural movie star, as he’ll join the ranks alongside Hollywood heavyweights like Bruce Campbell (Ash Williams) and Doug Bradley (Pinhead). Fans won’t have to wait long for more details about Cage’s addition to this popular multiplayer survival title, with more information slated for release on July 5th.
Dead by Daylight can be played on Windows PC, PS4, PS5, Mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
