Nicolas Cage Will Be in Dead By Daylight

Nic Cage Dead by Daylight

Behaviour Interactive confirmed their latest addition to Dead by Daylight will be Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage. This is not a character played by Nicolas Cage. It’s the actor himself who will become a playable character. More details will appear on July 5, 2023.

The announcement was made on the official Dead by Daylight Twitter account. In a moody trailer, we hear him whispering about the power of imagination before a CGI version of him walks out of the fog and looks at the camera. Behaviour confirmed that Nicolas Cage will be a Survivor in Dead by Daylight, summoned by The Entity while filming “the role of a lifetime.”

Dead by Daylight featured the likenesses of many real-life actors before, but usually we see them in the form of characters they’ve played. It’s not been Bruce Campbell showing up. It’s been Ash Williams from The Evil Dead, for example. This is the first time an actor has shown up as themselves.

While this marks his first appearance in a horror game, Nicolas Cage is no stranger to horror in his movie roles. He has appeared in films such as the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out of Space and the Five Nights at Freddy’s inspired Willy’s Wonderland. He also infamously appeared in the remake of folk horror movie The Wicker Man. More recently, he has played Dracula in Renfield.

Dead by Daylight is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
