In a surprise announcement from the developers, acclaimed actor Nicolas Cage will officially be joining the game as a Survivor. Not one of his previous characters, not a new role created specifically for the game — Nic Cage himself will be a playable character. But when is he officially coming to the horror multiplayer title?

Nicolas Cage will be playing himself in 'Dead by Daylight.'

Nic has been a staple of many award-winning films, including horror titles like Vampire's Kiss and Mandy, but this will be his first role in a video game.

"There's nothing more powerful than imagination," the actor's well-recognized voice begins in the teaser trailer. "It can shake the fabric of reality, transforming everything you may think you know."

According to the developers at Behavior Interactive, not only is Nic voicing the various lines his character has, but he has also personally recorded all of the grunts, screams, and other sounds his character will make during a match. This is not always the case in video games, as certain strenuous sounds can be damaging to actors' voices — but Nic supposedly insisted on doing it all himself.

The dev team unveiled even more information in an announcement at the 2023 Summer Games Fest livestream that took place on June 8, 2023. Fans will be able to get their hands on Nicolas Cage as a Dead by Daylight survivor starting on July 25.

In celebration of seven years, Dead by Daylight has plenty of other new and exciting announcements coming for fans, with more than just Nic Cage joining the fray. Players can learn more about the game's roadmap for the remainder of the year. These include several new survivors and new killers.

Dead by Daylight is available to play on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and mobile.
