What is Dead by Daylight?

Dead by Daylight (also known as DBD) is an Asymmetrical Multiplayer Horror Game. Survivors must escape the procedurally generated in-game maps, dubbed “Killing Grounds,” to avoid getting caught, hooked, and sacrificed by the Killer. A cat-and-mouse game set in a nightmarish world, Dead by Daylight features paid DLC from popular horror franchises such as Scream, Hellraiser, Resident Evil, The Ring, and more.

How a VPN can help reduce DBD lag

Tired of laggy gameplay? This is often caused by high ping (or latency). Using a VPN means shorter connection routes between you and gaming servers, which can lower latency and overall lag. Packets of data will be able to move between your computer and the game server faster, reducing any noticeable delay between your actions and what happens in the game—and giving you an advantage. Usually, connecting to the VPN server closest to the game server will give the best results.
