An amazing online survival horror game released in June 2016, where one can either play as a killer or one of four survivors.

The killers must sacrifice the survivors to an unknown being called the Entity, using several sacrificial hooks around the maps. As of now, there is only one killer in each game. The four killers are the Trapper, the Wraith, the Hillbilly and the Nurse.

The survivors must predictably attempt to survive the wrath of the killers. There are two ways of escaping; the simplest way being activating a set number of generators around the map and exiting through two gates at different ends of the map, or using a hatch which can appear in a completely random place (requires the Skeleton Key if there is more than one survivor alive, or if there is only one person alive then the hatch is free of use when found). The five survivors are Dwight Fairfield, Claudette Morel, Jake Park, Meg Thomas and Nea Karlsson.

Both the killers and survivors have their own set of perks, some unique to one killer/survivor. These all aid the player in their objective in some way.
