Dead by Daylight's new Ringu chapter has released today, ‘Sadako Rising’ introducing the eponymous lank-haired, vengeful spirit to the game as a new Killer, alongside new Survivor, Yoichi Asakawa. Sadako brings her “otherworldly power” and “fearsome temper” to Dead by Daylight, as per Kōji Suzuki's original novel and the 1998 film.
Sadako begins each trial undetectable and invisible, meaning that playing as Yoichi presents and entirely different prospect. When Sadako draws near, her presence is revealed intermittently, but to attack, she needs to manifest at will or adopt material form by crawling out of a TV. Doing so will see the Condemned progress of any nearby Survivor increase.
Should the Survivor's Condemned meter fill, they can be instantly killed once downed. You can find out more about Sadako Rising in the trailer below. As well as the new Ringu chapter, the Sadako Rising Collection is also now available, with new cosmetics including the ‘Rotten Remains Ultra Rare Outfit’ for Sadako in the store for 1,485 Auric Cells. Yoichi's ‘Research Trip Very Rare Outfit’ is also available for 1,080 Auric Cells.
You can purchase the new Sadako Rising chapter for Dead by Daylight now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia.
