New Dead by Daylight chapter Resident Evil: PROJECT W is out today.
Behavior Interactive announces that the second chapter of the Resident Evil franchise for Dead by Daylight, Resident Evil: PROJECT W, out today. The new chapter brings Albert Wesker, Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers into the fog. To celebrate the release of Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil: PROJECT W, fans are also treated to a revamp of the Raccoon City Police Station map. There are also new outfits from the PROJEKT W collection, including the iconic Carlos Oliveira, Sheva Alomar, and Hunk sets for Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and The Legion.
Players who primarily play as a hitman can take on the role of the nefarious Albert Wesker, known in the game as the Mastermind. Wesker is an icon of the Resident Evil franchise, easily recognized by his straight blonde hair, signature sunglasses, leather trench coat – and of course his piercing orange eyes. He was once a senior official at the Umbrella Corporation. His ambition and sense of moral superiority led him to develop a powerful viral weapon: Uroboros. Wesker’s ability, Contagious Dash, allows him to charge forward at high speed, grabbing anyone who gets in his way and infecting them with Uroboros.
Additionally, two survivors will enter the entity’s realm. Ada Wongs true target is as elusive as she is, but her survival skills make her a valuable ally. Rebecca Chambers is a talented and gifted young woman who joined the STARS Bravo team at the age of 18 as a field medic. Rebecca is an asset on any mission and will do anything to save a teammate in distress – sometimes even risking her own life.
Starting today, the improved map of the Raccoon City Police Station be explored. Introduced in 2021, the map has undergone a complete quality update in response to fan feedback. From now on it will Raccoon City Police Station split into two separate variants representing the west and east wings, both of which include the main hall. Also, more paths inside and outside the building have been added, resulting in improved level design and gameplay.
“The Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil: PROJECT W Chapter marks an important milestone for us – as it is the first time we are developing a second Chapter in the same licensed universe,” said Dave Richard, Creative Director for Dead by Daylight. “It’s an opportunity for our fans to continue immersing themselves in one of the most beloved horror universes, and it’s a great pleasure for us to continue this great collaboration with Capcom.”
“The Capcom team is delighted to be back with us once again Dead by Daylight to work together to expand the Resident Evil story,” the publisher said in an official statement. “It’s a proud moment to unite the many iterations of iconic Resident Evil characters like Albert Wesker and see them stand for themselves in a new universe. Fusing two iconic horror universes together is no easy feat – but the result is wonderful and we hope fans feel the same way.”
