Behaviour Interactive, the developers of the online horror multi-player game “Dead by Daylight“, have released news that an FPS game “Death Garden” is in the works. A 5 vs 1 shooter game, hunter vs runners.
Dead By Daylight Shares Sneak Peak
Not all details about the game have been released by Behaviour Interactive, however PC closed alpha testing is now open, and previews of the game were playable at PAX East 2018.
Set in the near future, Deathgarden revolves around a spectacular real blood sport that is the most popular entertainment on the planet, where powerful Hunters prey on agile Runners.
In Deathgarden, Players choose to team up as agile Runners or to embody the Hunter, a heavily armed champion whose mission is to kill the runners, preventing them from escaping The Garden- an arena that is different every time.
Interview With Matt Jackson
In a recent interview with Matt Jackson (Design Director) by Twin Galaxies at PAX East, he explained that there is a lore behind the game but did not want to share with the public just yet. He also goes on to explain the inspiration for this new game:
Dead by Daylight is a great game, we love it. We love the asymmetrical genre, and we thought about what we could do to push it further. We love the design challenges that come with it, and so this was kind of our brain child from those thoughts.
Matt Jackson – Design Director – Death Garden
As Death Garden is still in development only one playstyle is currently available, but Matt Jackson shared that they plan to have other games modes in future.
Although there are some similarities between their current title Dead by Daylight, Death Garden will be more team focused meaning surviving will depend on how well you work as a team. But one similarity can be drawn is that the “hunter” like the killers in Dead by Daylight cannot be damaged only stunned.
