Dead by Daylight introduces Nic Cage as a Survivor with acting abilities

Can Nicolas Cage Survive the Fog in Dead by Daylight?

Behold, dear players! The realm of terror, known as the Fog, has a new contender, and he goes by the name of Nicolas Cage. Yes, you heard that right! The one and only Nicolas Cage (Renfield, Pig) is now a playable character in Dead by Daylight, the wildly popular multiplayer survival horror game by Behaviour Interactive. But can Nicolas Cage act his way out of a bodybag? Let’s find out!

In this epic DLC, Cage plays none other than himself, Nicolas Cage the actor. During a film shoot, his acting skills are so magnificent, so awe-inspiring, that he unwittingly summons Dead by Daylight’s “malevolent being of incomprehensible power,” The Entity. Suddenly, Cage finds himself transported to the treacherous Fog, where he must fight for his life against a horde of terrifying Killers, including Ghostface, Sadako, and Albert Wesker. It turns out, Cage was particularly thrilled to face off against Sadako, the creepy villain from The Ring. Who knew?

But wait, there’s more! Nicolas Cage brings his own unique set of character perks to Dead by Daylight, making him a force to be reckoned with. Allow me to introduce you to his powers, including the hilariously entertaining perk known as Plot Twist. Brace yourselves for a wild ride!

Nicolas Cage’s Powers and Perks


  • This power activates while you are in tip-top shape. When running, simply press the Active Ability Button 2 to perform an expert-level knee lift for 0.5 seconds, granting you a 25% Haste boost for 2 seconds. But that’s not all! Prepare for the unknown, as one of the following effects will take place:
    • Feel the rush of being Exposed for 12 seconds.
    • Experience another burst of 25% Haste for 2 seconds.
    • Scream like there’s no tomorrow, only to realize that nothing happens.
    • Voila! Gain a random rare item with random add-ons and drop whatever you were holding.
  • Just remember, the same effect can’t happen twice in a row. This power causes a temporary state of exhaustion for 60/50/40. And sorry, folks, no Dramaturgy when you’re already exhausted.

Scene Partner

  • Activate this perk when you find yourself within the Killer’s terrifying Terror Radius. As soon as you lay eyes on the Killer, let out a soul-shattering scream! The perk then blesses you with the ability to see the Killer’s aura for 3/4/5 seconds. But wait, there’s a twist! There’s a chance you might scream again, granting you an additional 2 seconds of Killer vision. Scene Partner, however, needs a breather and goes on a cool-down for 60 seconds.

Plot Twist

  • Brace yourselves, because this perk will blow your mind! When you’re injured and in need of a craftingy escape plan, press the Active Ability Button 2 while crouched and motionless. Behold the magic as you silently enter the dying state, leaving no trace of blood or noise behind. But here’s the real kicker: you have the power to fully recover from the dying state! Yes, you heard that right. Plot Twist allows you to make a stunning recovery, instantly healing yourself and gaining a 50% Haste boost for 2/3/4 seconds. However, this perk deactivates if you manage to recover on your own by any means. Fear not, though, as the perk re-activates once the exit gates are powered. Now that’s a game-changer!
