Today’s stacked The Game Awards event has brought with it plenty of accolades, updates, first looks and surprise reveals, awarding some of this year’s best and most exciting games and studios while setting up an exciting future to come.
One of these brand-new reveals comes from Supermassive Games, which finally lifted the lid on its previously-announced collaboration with Behaviour Interactive on a wholly single-player Dead by Daylight title.
The Casting of Frank Stone is poised to be a thrilling narrative game set in the world of the hit horror multiplayer title, imbuing the franchise with Supermassive’s trademark style where players’ every decision matters in shaping the story, its outcome and the fate of its characters. It’ll be an exciting one for Dead by Daylight fans especially, offering an all-new look at the wider world of the franchise in a completely original story, set in the town of Cedar Hills as a group of young friends find themselves at the mercy of the blood-soaked legacy of Frank Stone – a legacy that ripples across generations and the very fabric of reality itself.
The Casting of Frank Stone is slated to release some time in 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Check out the trailer below:
“We’re always looking at ways to offer different experiences to the Dead by Daylight community,” said head of partnerships at Behaviour, Mathieu Côté, in an accompanying press release. “Our players have been interested in a single-player narrative experience for quite some time, and we’re excited to expand the Dead by Daylight universe and explore new territory with Supermassive games, a studio that is at the forefront of modern video game storytelling.”
“Crafting unique, immersive stories is what we’re passionate about at Supermassive Games,” adds creative director, Steve Goss. “We’re massive horror fans and are incredibly excited for the opportunity to tell a completely original story set in the terrifying universe of Dead by Daylight. Expect emotional, tense moments and twists and turns as you get to know a new cast of characters outside of The Entity’s Realm.”
