NEW SURVIVOR vs RINGU KILLER! ☠️ | Dead by Daylight DBD (RINGU PTB) - Onryo / Sadako / Yoichi
From a long-forgotten fountain to entity: From the 8th of March, a dark being lurks in the depths of the water to spread his curse in the world of entity. With the meanwhile 23rd chapter of Dead by Daylight, Sadako Rising, enter the new killer Sadako, in the game as the OnRryo, as well as the new surviving Youchi Asakawa the fog.

Fans of the well-known horrorromans and the same-name original filming Ringu is likely to be known to the fate of Sadako, which was left to her death in the fountain. Now she crawls in Dead by Daylight from her aqueous grave and seeks her sacrifice home. Equilized with eerie forces, your anger manifests in a cursed video tape that enables it to show you before those who look at, to curse them and leave them back to dying – and soon all survivors will be subject to this fate in the fog.

“Ringu brings the psychological horror into our game, which is strongly different from the slasher style that our fans are used to. With Sadako you can expect scary and unexpected gameplay mechanics that are not found in other killers, “explains Dave Richards, Creative Director of Dead by Daylight. “The survivors should be careful, because they will be very scared!”

Yoichi Asakawa: The story never told: pursued of memories of the loss, darkened by the shadow of evil. The journey of Yoichi Asakawa is far from over. In his younger life he came into contact with the anger of Onryo, which is why he is not foreign to him.

Yoichi Asakawa, who first introduced the fans in the original film Ringu in 1998, is the only hero of the Japanese cult series that survived Sadako’s rage. His reappearance in Dead by Daylight is thus the first opportunity for the fans to see him again for more than 20 years after his escape and finally to learn what has become of him. Meanwhile, he is a respected sea biologist. But his search for answers leads him deeper into treacherous waters, deep into a rich, which lies beyond the rational understanding.

“Getting the confidence of Kadokawa to finish the story of Yoichi Asakawa is one of the greatest honors for me. The decision to finally tell a long-awaited, unexpected history in a video game is a bold decision that speaks for the importance of our medium in today’s pop culture, “continues the Creative Director Dave Richards.

The new Dead by Daylight chapter Sadako Rising will be available from March 8 via Steam, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, and Stadia, as well as PS5, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch.
