PUBG and Dead by Daylight Crossover Coming Soon

Do frying pans beat machetes? Here's what you need to know about the upcoming PUBG and Dead by Daylight crossover/collaboration.

Battle Royale and Survival Horror fans rejoice! Two big names, PUBG: Battlegrounds and Dead by Daylight, will be colliding this October, with an announced crossover coming soon. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming PUBG and Dead by Daylight crossover

When Will the PUBG and Dead by Daylight Crossover Take Place?

The PUBG Battlegrounds and Dead by Daylight crossover will be coming this October 2022, as announced on the official PUBG Twitter. PUBG Battlegrounds is available on PC through Steam and on the PS4 and PS5Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S and mobile devices. 

Dead by Daylight is playable on PC through Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Windows Store, as well as PS4 and PS5Xbox One and Xbox Series X|SNintendo Switch, and mobile devices.

What Will the Pubg and Dead by Daylight Crossover Consist Of?

It might seem a weird combination of genres, but neither franchise is new to the premise of adjacent titles. The Canadian-based developer, in particular, had a previous collaboration with the team-based weapons brawler For Honor in 2021, letting the Behavior Interactive mascot “The Trapper” hunt down warriors on both teams with his machete and brutally-effective bear traps.

We are still awaiting further details regarding the exact format and what rewards might be involved. The perennial leak source DBDLeaks did offer details on Dead by Daylight’s yearly Halloween event, saying it revolves around the collection and deposit of “energy.” 

Still, we don’t know if it’s related to the crossover at this time. The previous For Honor event had most of the content on the For Honor side, with the Survival Horror title offering a themed cosmetic charm. 

The same leaks source has since suggested the For Honor event is getting a follow-up in the vein of a new Killer character, believed to be part of the next “chapter” release. As such, there are a number of ways this latest crossover could go, and we’re hoping more information will be released shortly.
