Multiplayer survival horror game Dead By Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive continued its run of crossover announcements by partnering once more with one of the original survivor horror franchises: Resident Evil. The new Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil crossover is code-named “Project W” and will contain new playable characters for use in the game.
Check out the teaser trailer for the announcement below.

The teaser shows a survivor attempting to escape into a rainy alley, only to be accosted by an unseen killer or monster. She’s then thrown against a burning police car, followed by the Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil: Project W logo.
Project W isn’t the first time Resident Evil and Dead By Daylight have come together. 2021 saw Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy, and the Nemesis added to the playable roster. While it’s almost certain that more Resident Evil characters and items will be added to the game’s roster this time around, exactly who will join is unconfirmed. The “W” in the title suggests that longtime RE villain Albert Wesker may be the subject of the add-on, and possibly Ada Wong as well. Their names, at least, have a “W” in them.
Dead By Daylight is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and mobile devices. A cosmetic-only crossover with Attack on Titan is also planned.
