Following a recent crossover with SAW and the disturbing Portrait of a Murder DLC, Dead by Daylight will soon be receiving its teased Ringu chapter, titled ‘Sadako Rising’. Inspired by the novel by Kōji Suzuki and the original Japanese film adaptation of Ringu from 1998, the 23rd addition to the horror title will feature Sadako as a new Killer.
As well as the lank-haired ghoul, Ringu protagonist Yoichi Asakawa will be added as a new Survivor, which is fitting, given that he's the only person to have ever survived a brush with Sadako. Known in-game as ‘The Onryō’, Sadako will crawl out of stagnant water to vengefully pursue her victims - anyone unfortunate enough to have viewed a cursed videotape.
“Ringu introduces psychological horror to our game, which is very different from the slasher style our fans are used to,” said Creative Director Dave Richard. “They can expect Sadako to come with creepy and surprising gameplay mechanics that are not found in other Killers. Survivors beware, she will freak you out!”
Sadako Rising will be coming to Dead by Daylight on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, and PC on 8th March. You can take a look at the upcoming chapter in the new reveal trailer below.
