A bunch of new Resident Evil characters have arrived Dead by daylight.
Resident Evil’s Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy and featured Nemesis from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis has been part of the cast; they were added in the first chapter of the Resident Evil crossover, which also includes a map of the Raccoon City Police Department. The chapter was successful enough to earn a second crossover, called Project W, which featured Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers as the Survivor, while Albert Wesker was the newest Killer.
Wesker first appeared in Resident Evil as the leader of the elite STARS unit. It is later revealed that he is a traitor who has worked for the insidious Umbrella corporation. Wesker was augmented and buffed due to his history as a test subject in Project W, and he served as a villain in many Resident Evil games, until Chris Redfield’s throw he entered a volcano at the end Resident Evil 5. In Dead by daylight, he is armed with a knife, and he uses his training and physicality to spot the Survivors and chase them. He also uses the Uroboros Virus to infect survivors and break barriers.
Rebecca Chambers also appeared in the remake of the first Resident Evil game and its prequel, Resident Evil 0. She is a doctor for STARS, and in Dead by daylight, looks like she’ll be able to help out her allies with some of that training. Ada Wong, another new Survivor, first appeared in Resident Evil 2, although she plays a much larger role in Resident Evil 4. She’s a notorious spy and double agent who often looks to the good guys – but only after a few lies, secret plans, and dramatic failures.
Project W launches on August 30 at Dead by daylight; Players will be able to purchase Wesker (also known as Mastermind), Ada and Rebecca separately, or all of the new characters alongside Jill, Leon, and Nemesis in one larger Resident Evil franchise.
Update (August 30): This story has been updated with additional release details and a launch trailer is now available Project W for Dead by daylight.
