An online asymmetrical survival horror game released in June 2016.

In Dead by Daylight, each trial has one Killer and four Survivors, never more, never less.

The Killers must protect the Generators from being powered and sacrifice the Survivors to an unknown being called the Entity, using several sacrificial hooks around the map. The Killers have specific powers that can aid them in their quest. For example, the Trapper can place bear traps around the map in any location to cripple Survivors, apply pressure to areas and shorten chases. There can only be one Killer in each trial.

The survivors must attempt to survive the wrath of the Killers. The simplest way to escape the trial is activating five Generators around the map and exiting through two Exit Gates. The Survivors have defenses such as pallets that they can use to slow down or even stun the Killer, and windows to put distance between them and the Killer.

Both the Killers and Survivors have their own set of perks, some unique to one Killer/Survivor which can be "taught" to other Killers and Survivors alike upon reaching character levels 30, 35 and 40. Survivors also have items such as medkits and flashlights, and addons which can either prolong, quicken or upgrade said items. Killers also have addons that can upgrade their power in similar ways. These all aid the player in their objective.
