Ringu is coming to Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight has just released some major news: the iconic horror franchise Ringu is coming to the game in the next chapter. This is great news for horror fans, and will be a major addition to Dead by Daylight. This new chapter is going to be based on the original Ringu story written by Kōji Suzuki, and the movie that followed. We know this new chapter will be released sometime in March 2022. This means players have plenty of time to speculate about how the Killer will work, and who will be the Survivor.

Kōji Suzuki’s book Ring was published in 1991 and started the haunting story of a cursed video, which would terrorize its victims and kill them in 7 days. The only way for someone to avoid this terrible fate is to share the video with someone else. In 1998 the novel was adapted into a Japanese film and the story grew in popularity, quickly becoming a horror sensation around the world.

“We are very excited about the collaboration with Behaviour Interactive and the Dead by Daylight team. We’ll be sending one of our most haunting characters into the Fog to pour down horrors that will rival all the great predecessors,” said Kadokawa Corporation producer Reiko Imayasu.

This is an impressive statement that really hypes up the upcoming new Dead by Daylight Ringu chapter. I can imagine this Killer will have a power that gets stronger the longer the match goes on, or the more injuries and hooks the Killer gets. In the movie the cursed people would get more intense hallucinations the closer they got to the final 7th day. It makes sense the Survivors will experience something similar as they get closer to being sacrificed to the Entity.

The one question remaining is how exactly the curse got released into the Entity’s realm. Maybe Dwight is responsible for releasing this horror into the realm; after all, he is the one who released Pinhead.
