Dead by Daylight delisting Stranger Things DLC, trophies will be adjusted accordingly

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Dead by Daylight's Stranger Things DLC expansion will be delisted from all digital storefronts on November 17th, which would have discontinued one trophy. Behaviour Interactive has stated that an update to the trophy guidelines will be made "to be generic," and therefore still unlockable.

Developer Behaviour Interactive hasn't publicly stated the reason for the Stranger Things DLC removal, but it is likely because of an expiring licensing agreement. The Stranger Things Underground Complex Map is going to be removed and the characters — such as Nancy Wheeler, Steve Harrington, and The Demogorgon — will all be removed from the marketplace.

"On November 17th, the gate to the Upside Down will close, and the Underground Complex Map will be sealed off permanently to players in Dead by Daylight," states a post from the Dead by Daylight developers. The TT hut's concern was initially for the So Alone from the Stranger Things Chapter. Though, the accompanying Denied! trophy would have been unaffected.

Now, Behaviour Interactive has made sure it is clear that the 100% should still be obtainable because the trophy guidelines for the affected trophies will be updated to become something generic. However, the tweet is in response to the character-based trophies, and not the map-based ones. We are waiting on confirmation of the map-based trophy, though we would expect it to be given the generic update too. Great stuff from the dev team there. Thanks!

What do you think of the news? Is it still a strange thing to see DLC and games delisted for licence expiries? Let us know in the comments!
