Cross-play is now live in Dead by Daylight. Behaviour Interactive announced last month that the popular feature was coming to its horror title, along with limited cross-progression. The cross-play feature allows players across Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox, and PlayStation to play together, along with unifying friends lists across systems. Behaviour says this “will surely bring new metas to Dead by Daylight.”
Alongside cross-play, a limited version of cross-progression is also coming soon. Thankfully, this does support Switch, but only with PC and Stadia profiles. That means that any ranks, unlocks, and purchases made on these three platforms will carry across a unified account. The development team has expressed the desire to extend this to Xbox and PlayStation but has said there are no guarantees it will happen.
This comes four years after Dead by Daylight‘s initial launch on PC. Here’s what Behaviour Interactive had to say about this journey:
The Dead by Daylight team worked hand in hand with the platform owners to make this happen. After four years, millions of players, and countless matches and jump scares, Dead by Daylight is jumping into the future to meet and exceed both the rising tides of industry standards and the wishes of its players.
Cross-play and cross-friends are live now in Dead by Daylight on Switch. Cross-progression is planned to arrive at a later date.
