A new trailer for the upcoming Dead by Daylight prequel comic has given fans a tease at the bloody origin of the popular killer team, the Legion. Ever since its announcement back in October, the Dead by Daylight comic has become one of the most anticipated new series of the year. The lore-rich world of the popular asymmetrical multiplayer game lends itself to telling incredible stories because of the interesting characters and mysterious realm controlled by the Entity. It’s no secret that the Legion, a band of killers from Canada, were announced to be the first characters to get the comic treatment. However, a newly unveiled trailer shows that their origin will be incredibly bloody.
Titan Comics took to Twitter to share the first major teaser for the upcoming Dead by Daylight comic by Nadia Shammas and Dillon Snook, and it’s everything that a fan of the game would expect. Not only does it feature the iconic heartbeat that indicates whenever a killer is near in the game, but it’s backed up by the Legion’s guitar-heavy chase music. That’s when the teaser for Dead by Daylight’s comic adaptation really kicks in, and the revealed artwork promises something that will make any hardcore DBD player smile. There’s non-stop action featuring an epic sequence on a train that will undoubtedly focus on just how lethal the Legion can be. There are also some more laid back moments between the four members that will give more insight into who they are as characters. In short, this perfectly summarizes just what fans can expect from this brutal origin while promising a few surprises along the way.
Dead by Daylight‘s Comic Teaser Promises a Bloody Good Time
What’s most notable about this trailer is just how graphic it is. Dead by Daylight is a game that’s rooted in the slasher subgenre of horror with each killer having different brutal ways to kill survivors. This trailer shows that the comic won’t stray from how bloody the game can be based on some of its artwork. There’s relentless stabbing and blood going on with bodies left in the Legion’s wake, especially on the train sequence that seems to be one of the comic’s biggest moments. This story certainly won’t be for the faint of heart. However, for fans of the game, it’ll be an exciting addition to the franchise’s horrific legacy.
The Exclusive In-Game Item With Every Issue Is Revealed
When the covers for the comic were first announced, Titan Comics promised that on top of uncovering the Legion’s terrifying origin, the comics would also include a code to unlock something players can equip in-game. Now, the trailer has shown exactly what that is. Whenever a player enters the code into the Dead by Daylight store, they will receive an exclusive charm featuring Ivan Tao’s cover art from the first issue of the series. Charms are cosmetics that players can equip as a way to personalize their characters. While they don’t do anything to help characters in-game, they’re a fun way of allowing players’ personalities to come through. This new comic charm that only comes with physical copies will be a perfect addition to collections that will please not just fans of the game, but comic book fans as well.
Dead by Daylight #1 is expected to drop in stores on May 24 with seven different covers to collect. It’s been a huge year for the Dead by Daylight, as deals have been announced to bring the game to other media, including a Blumhouse-produced Dead by Daylight movie adaptation. However, this teaser for the upcoming comic focusing on the Legion‘s bloody origins is probably the most exciting because it will show just how epic the lore of Dead by Daylight can be in the form of a terrifying horror comic.
Look for Dead by Daylight #1 on May 24th from Titan Comics!
