Silent Hill's Pyramid Head is Dead by Daylight's next killer

Posted by: on eurogamer May 26, 2020

Konami might not be in any particular hurry to give the world a proper new Silent Hill (damn you Konami!), but it's now teamed up with Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive to bring Silent Hill 2's iconic unearthly butcher Pyramid Head to the asymmetrical horror game.

Pyramid Head arrives as part of Dead by Daylight's upcoming Silent-Hill-themed DLC - which also includes a suitably sinister new map and familiar survivor - and marks the game's seventh licensed addition, following on from the likes of Halloween's Michael Myers, Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger, Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface, Saw's Amanda Young, Scream's Ghost Face, and Stranger Things' Demogorgon.

Behaviour Interactive calls Pyramid Head (who'll be known as The Executioner in-game) a "sadistic and merciless killer fixated on dispensing punishment through pain", and the pointy-headed one will be fulfilling their tour of torment within the shadowy halls of a new map inspired by Silent Hill's Midwich Elementary School.
