The Plague and The Trapper

Do you ever watch horror movies and chastise the characters as they make stupid decisions? Are you one of those people that insists you would survive, and wouldn’t make hilariously bad choices? Well, perhaps it’s time to test that theory with this week’s deal. Right now, on Amazon US, you can grab Dead by Daylight: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch for $29.49 – that’s a great saving of 26%.

We expect you’ve probably heard of Dead by Daylight, as many survivors have fallen victim to The Entity’s deranged legion of psychopaths since its launch in 2016. Since then, the game has amassed quite the following, with many players keen to test out their skills in 4v1 matches.

Four of you play as a survivor. You find yourself in The Entity’s playground. These hellish locations are full of generators for you to repair. Doing so opens the door to freedom. But wait, there’s a catch, a huge, deadly, one. The fifth player in the game is a sadistic killer, and each available Dead by Daylight killer has an array of skills and perks that make them the perfect killing machine.

The job of a killer is simple. You must hunt down, and sacrifice, all of the survivors by putting them on hooks. If the killer succeeds, and feeds all of their prospective victims to The Entity, the maniac wins. However, should just one Dead by Daylight character be tenacious enough to survive, that’s a victory to the survivors.
