Just like Friday the 13th: The Game, Dead by Daylight is an intriguing experience on Xbox One and other platforms. The title focuses on asymmetrical multiplayer where you have to escape legendary monsters and villains from famous horror franchises. Today, the title revealed another major addition from a Netflix series.

Yes, that's right. Stranger Things characters and monsters are coming to Dead by Daylight. The Demogorgon, Nancy, and Steve join the roster. The developer added the following.

The Dead by Daylight team is proud to present the brand-new Chapter for Dead by Daylight: Stranger Things. The Entity descends on the Midwestern town of Hawkins as Stranger Things, the critically acclaimed Netflix Original Series enters the realm of Dead by Daylight. The Chapter introduces a new Killer and two new Survivors to the realm of The Entity: the monstrous, otherworldly Demogorgon is the new untamable Killer. Against it stands not one, but two, new Survivors: Nancy Wheeler, a tough aspiring journalist, and Steve Harrington, a former high school jock with a knack for finding trouble. The Stranger Things Chapter comes with a new map, the Underground Complex. Located below the Hawkins National Laboratory, this grim compound caused an inter-dimensional rift that released dozens of creatures before being sealed off.

Luckily, the wait won't be too long because the Stranger Things Chapter launches in September on consoles and PC. The title is part of Xbox Game Pass. The add-ons are discounted through your subscription.
