Over the weekend, Behaviour Interactive released a teaser clip for the newest killer on their Dead by Daylight Instagram page. The clip revealed two sets of scratches on a sliding door, with an unknown figure walking then running and pulling open the door remaining hidden as the screen went black.  After its release, fans flocked to the comments section with many speculating that the new killer would be a Japanese legend called the Kuchisake-onna or Slit Mouth Woman.  With killers from notable franchises, like Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger, this wouldn’t be too far of a stretch as the Slit-Mouth Woman has her own movie Carved: The Slit Mouth Woman. Others took to the Dead by Daylight subreddit to speculate a new mechanic wherein survivors could close sliding doors to slow down their pursuer.

Now Behaviour has released a new trailer on the Dead by Daylight YouTube channel, revealing that the new DLC chapter will be called “First Cut.”  The trailer starts off showing a traditional Oni mask used to represent fierce demons in Japanese literature and art.

We then see a figure, presumably a man by his voice, holding a bloodied samurai sword and speaking in Japanese which was translated by user Donnary21st:

“There is no point, dear daughter. We are born to die. The more we wait, the more pain we carry.”

The screen then goes black while a struggle can be heard in the background. The samurai can be heard either slicing, or attempting to slice his victim, which ends in glass shattering. It would make sense for his victim in this video to have escaped and become the new survivor, but no details have yet been confirmed.  In the last few seconds of the video, the killer’s words have been translated by Aquila Imperiale as “Next will be bigger.” While there has been no release date for the new chapter on PC, Xbox One, and PS4; we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.  For the full trailer, you can check out the video below:

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
