Dead by Daylight will also be available on Xbox Game Pass for Console. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, players will have access to Cloud gaming (Beta), allowing them to face trials on their Android mobile phone or tablet, truly making Dead by Daylight a portable experience. Moreover, Ultimate members can redeem a new Perk for free, adding Kate Denson and the Clown to their roster, as well as two outfits.
