Actor Nicolas Cage is making his video game debut as part of the Survivor roster in Dead by Daylight today. Currently available in the Public Test Build of the game on Steam, Nicolas Cage is the first time a public figure is joining the ranks of Dead by Daylight.
The arrival of Cage in the game brings with it three new character perks: Dramaturgy, Scene Partner, and Plot Twist. Dramaturgy lets players allow their instinct to takeover during moments of high intensity, with unpredictable results. Scene Partner gives players deeper insight into the Killer’s process while staring directly at them. Plot Twist allows players to use Cage’s acting skills to make a risky bold decision.
The in-game version of Nicolas Cage is a highly-fictionalised version of the actor. His story revolves around the sheer quality of his acting having summoned The Entity, a scenario that casts Cage into the otherworldly Fog, where he has to team up with other Survivors to escape the game’s many Killers.
Dead by Daylight: Nicolas Cage Chapter Pack will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch on July 25.
