Well, here's something we didn't expect to be talking about today!

The one and only Nicholas Cage (!) has been announced as coming to Dead by Daylight's character roster in the near future, with more details about his inclusion to be announced on July 5th.

For now, all we have is the teaser trailer up above and a short description about how he fits into the world of Dead by Daylight, which you can read below:

"After countless awards and over one hundred movies shot across the globe, Nicolas Cage had seen it all and done it all – or so he thought. While on set filming the role of a lifetime, his performance summoned The Entity, a malevolent being of incomprehensible power.

The actor soon found himself cast in otherworldly Fog, forced to Survive a host of terrifying Killers deadlier than even the most scathing film critic. Learn more about Nic Cage’s arrival in Dead by Daylight on July 5th."

As you can probably imagine, this announcement has already attracted massive attention over the past hour-or-so, with Dead by Daylight fans sharing their surprise at Cage's appearance in the game:

Dead by Daylight is currently playable right now on Xbox Game Pass if you're interested in checking it out, but we wouldn't be surprised if Cage takes the form of paid DLC... we'll have to wait until July 5th to find out more.
