In 2019, fans of zombies and all things mildly spooky were thrilled to learn about the crossover between Dead by Daylight and the popular Netflix Original series Stranger Things. The show, which just debuted the first part of its fourth season on the streaming service, received a DLC add-on pack. It featured skins for the Demogorgon and popular characters Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington (with Jonathan Byers added later). Those who purchased the pack can still use those skins now.

Unfortunately, the pack was pulled from the game in 2021, likely due to the licensing timeline, leaving those who hadn't already snagged the pack without a way to obtain it. The Hawkins Laboratory map was also pulled from rotation, leaving only the skins behind.

But guess what? Lawyers talked to other lawyers and now Stranger Things will be back on Dead by Daylight!

'Stranger Things is returning to 'Dead By Daylight'?

Licensing is the least sexy but most lucrative part of any intellectual property. As one can imagine, a giant hit like Stranger Things is worth a lot of money in licensing. The licensing of that show alone probably bought the producers a new private plane. But whatever the issue was that caused the Stranger Things images to get pulled in the first place has been resolved. That's also another plane for the Netflix CEO. All the old cosmetic mods from 2021 will also return. Including Steve's ice cream sailor suit from season 3.

Behavior Interactive's Mathieu Côté said,

“We’re thrilled to renew this collaboration with Netflix, to bring back the Stranger Things Chapter, including the Underground Complex Map from the Hawkins National Laboratory, and the iconic Survivor duo composed of Nancy Wheeler, a tough aspiring journalist, and Steve Harrington, a former high school jock with a knack for finding trouble. We hope players who didn’t get to experience Stranger Things will take full advantage of this gaming experience today."

Dead by Daylight players will be back to the world of Stranger Things very soon.
