Dead by Daylight has long had a track record for incorporating some of the most legendary horror icons in pop culture, including the likes of Pyramid Head, Nemesis, Ghostface, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, Amanda Young aka The Pig, Michael Meyers, and even the Demogorgon, and now it’s about to introduce yet another classic: Sadako from The Ring.

Making her debut as part of the Sadako Rising DLC, Koji Suzuki’s iconic ghost will soon be a playable killer character alongside Yoichi Asakawa as a new survivor. Behavior Interactive hasn’t divulged too much about the new killer’s playstyle just yet, but Dead by Daylight creative director Dave Richard teases that there’ll be some “creepy and surprising” mechanics introduced to the experience. As for Asakawa, as a child, he was the only person to survive meeting Sadako, and now as a grown-up marine biologist, he’s looking for answers.

For those interested, the Sadako Rising DLC will arrive for Dead by Daylight on March 8.

Elsewhere in gaming, you’ll actually be able to play the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tracks without buying the DLC pass.
