“This Holiday season comes a toy you’ll die for…”
If you can believe it, November 9th marks the 35th anniversary of 1988’s classic Child’s Play. Yes, Charles Lee Ray and his devious possessed doll form has been terrorizing us for over three decades.
Of course, Child’s Play would become a phenomenon, grossing $44 million on a $9 million budget. Since then, Chucky has returned in 6 sequels, a reboot, and a currently-airing television series. It’s safe to say he’s a cultural icon… However, for his thirty-fifth anniversary, the Good Guy gets the ultimate compliment.
Chucky is coming to Dead by Daylight! Yes, the world’s biggest horror multiplayer game and its most dangerous pint-sized slasher will finally meet! And we’re sure there will be fireworks…
In a brilliant and moody teaser, we are introduced to the game’s amazing rendering of Chucky, in the style of a Christmas toy commercial.
As Chucky arms up, we desperately search for him whilst he scurries around a decrepit looking home. Survivors screams echo through the halls as we finally find Chucky, over a dead body with knife in hand. We are cautioned we’d better purchase our friend to the end or… “you’re (bleep) dead!”
Brad Dourif once again provides Chucky’s voice, marking the first console outing for the character, which is rather difficult to believe.
Chucky will be available as downloadable content for all Dead by Daylight users on November 28th 2023, and is the perfect way to ring in 35 years of slashing.
Congratulations Chucky, and welcome to the Dead by Daylight family.
