Dead By Daylight is not just a popular multiplayer video game, it is also one of the biggest horror video games of today. Originally released back in 2016, Dead By Daylight has received numerous updates throughout the years in the form of exciting crossovers. From Saw to Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Grudge and so much more, there is much to love in Dead By Daylight if you are a horror fan.

But alongside their love of horror, the game’s team are also fans of metal, and as of recently, they have announced a new crossover with metal legends Slipknot and Iron Maiden. This crossover was announced during Dead By Daylight‘s 7th-anniversary broadcast.

This crossover involving the bands comes in the form of two new collections. One collection involves outfits inspired by Iron Maiden mascot Eddie, whereas the other collection involves nine different masks that “mirror” the masks worn by members of Slipknot.

Per an update shared on the Dead By Daylight website, the team provides the following:

“Honor the legacies of Iron Maiden and Slipknot with two new Collections centring around two of metal’s most prolific bands. The Iron Maiden Collection features Outfits inspired by their iconic mascot Eddie, while The Slipknot Collection features 9 Killer masks that mirror those worn by the band members.

“We also announced the Artists From The Fog Collection, a collaborative effort featuring Outfits designed by five artists, including renowned Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura.”

It is incredibly awesome to see heavy metal making its way into more video games. Hell, last week, Ghost even released their own video game.
