Alan Wake Dead by Daylight Release Date

Alan Wake joins the Dead by Daylight roster on January 30. Like most other DLC survivors, he’ll cost $10 on all platforms. If you’re a PC Dead by Daylight player, then you can test out Alan Wake alongside a suite of other tweaks and changes on the Public Test Build ahead of launch. There, you can play as Alan Wake before anyone else can.

Alan Wake’s perks make use of his iconic flashlight to help him survive the fog. His first perk, Champion of Light, grants him increased movement speed when holding a flashlight and lets him hinder killers and slow them down when he blinds them. He can also create a Boon Totem that lets fellow survivors see generators and chests across the map. When things get really dire, his final perk, Deadline, increases the frequency of skill checks and reduces the penalty for failing them.

While his kit might not be as exciting as other survivors’, Alan Wake is already proving to be one of the more popular survivors that the game has seen. Ilkka Villi’s likeness and Matthew Porretta’s voice were used for Alan Wake’s appearance in Dead by Daylight, too, so fans of the game will find an authentic recreation of their favorite author when they boot up the game.

Dead by Daylight continues to surprise with crossover killers and survivors coming faster than anyone expects. The game is already home to countless killers from the horror Hall of Fame like Chucky, Freddy Kreuger, and Leatherface, and there are also incredibly inventive original designs for killers and survivors alike.
