NetEase Games has finally released Dead by DaylightMobile in the Philippines to start technical tests (Closed Beta Testing) marking the first milestone for the game in Southeast Asia.
Dead by Daylight Mobile is a free asymmetrical 4 vs 1 multiplayer horror mobile game in which 1 crazed killer hunts down 4 friends through a terrifying nightmare. Players take on the roles of both Killer and Survivor in this deadly game of hide and seek. As of July 3, 2020, Dead by Daylight Mobile is no longer available for download on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store in the Philippines and will be replaced with the version by NetEase Games.
In the meantime, players from the Philippines will still be able to play on the version published by Behaviour Interactive. However, Filipino players will be required to download the new NetEase Games version and complete an account migration as the version by Behaviour Interactive will no longer be updated nor accessible in the Philippines.
All players in the Philippines will be able to continue using their accounts after completing the account migration, as the account data will be transferred to the new NetEase Games version. An in-game gift will be sent to players who successfully migrate their accounts to the NetEase Games version in appreciation of their support.
