Stranger Things DLC will be leaving Dead by Daylight in November.

As well as original creations, the multiplayer horror title includes killers and survivors – plus extra outfits – from a variety of different franchises, including the hit Netflix show.

Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington and The Demogorgon were added to the game in September 2019, along with a new map based on the Hawkins National Laboratory.

However, from 17 November this year, this extra content will no longer be available to purchase and the laboratory map will no longer be in rotation, removed permanently.

However, anyone who’s purchased Stranger Things characters or costumes will still be able to use them in the game. The content will just be removed from the store for new purchases from 17 November.

As such, Behaviour Interactive are launching a half price sale in the store, as a last chance to purchase Nancy, Steve or The Demogorgon, along with their costumes. The sale lasts from 18 August until 8 September.

That includes Steve in his Scoops Ahoy sailor outfit. Just saying…

In addition, generic versions of Stranger Things themed perks will appear in the shrine, functionally identical to the originals.

All the details are listed in a new blog post.

Fans are already lamenting the loss, sharing their favourite moments and cosplays on social media.

Does this mean we could see similar losses with other licensed content, including Silent Hill and Resident Evil?

Most recently Resident Evil content was added to Dead by Daylight, including survivors Leon Kennedy and Jill Valentine, plus Tyrant from the series’ third game as a killer.

There’s also a map based on the infamous Raccoon City Police Department.

Still, Behaviour are heavily teasing Hellraiser content for Dead by Daylight, so all is not lost.
