Next Killer - Speculation and Day Dreams

Already daydreaming about our next killer and hoping we'll get a teaser image, like we did with the Clown. 

I'm very much hoping they do a bug or spider themed killer next, to play off that fear like they did with the fear of clowns. Have a few ideas outlined. 

I know it seems like a stretch with everything going on around F13, but I'd love to see Vorhees join the fray. He definitely belongs. 

Someone a little beastly and more monstrous would get awesome as well... That could transform into a palette hopping window diving beast for a short time after a transformation time would be so cool. 

I guess theres no way to know what they'll bring to the table, but it's hard not to wonder. Hoping a tease comes through on their dev stream. Love the variety of killers and everyone fits well to me. Licensed or not, can't wait to see the next 3 and beyond.

    Funny enough, they're making a spider killer in the mobile version of DBD called Identity V that BHVR helped in developing. I wouldn't mind seeing something similar here too, though they have stated making a non-human model for a killer is daunting for them resource-wise.

    That said, I am hoping bring about a spider. If not, then give me Elmer Fudd.
    He's a human, and more importantly would be amazing playing in Sheltered Woods with his shotgun.

    Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting entitled suwvivow mains. Hehehehehe.

    Elmer Fudd sounds terrifying. 

    I've done a few mock ups for a spider-esque killer.. still humanoid, but with extra spider legs and features with wall climb or webbing. I saw some Identity V stuff in the early stages, but haven't checked it out recently. Off to take a look now!

    Like Elise, from LoL? I wouldn't mind that either myself.

    I know very little of Identity V (though I love the Coraline aspect to it), but here's the video of the upcoming Queen Spider someone showed me:

    Enjoy

    Looks pretty cool!
    I never played LOL, but just looked Elise up. Same basic concept, just less fantasy version and more horror. I think it would work.. evee more so after seeing the Identity V killer.

    I am ddreaming about a new viable killer, viable just like the nurse that doesnt have to rely on survivors mistake and doesnt get looped into oblivion

    Yeah yeah, I know its not gonna happen etc etc :angry:

    My gut's telling me it's a licensed Killer. But licensed from what is a big question. Jason, Pinhead, and Ghost Face are off the table ATM because of legal issues. I wouldn't be surprised if we see them next year.

    F13 fanboys are going to be salty af when Jason is in DbD.

    What's going on with Ghostface and Pinhead? I do remember a dev stream where they stated Pinhead would really fit in with the world and estheic of DBD.

    Did they really? Can't imagine them getting Pennywise after adding the clown.

    The Thing would be cool. Shapeshifting monstrosity. Naming convention already fits, haha. That would be a sick way of doing the cloning killer everyone dreams of.

    Well I recall them saying they didn't have licensed killers planned, but if one presented itself ready (I.e. being negotiated to use) they'd do it. That say I really think the 3 killers of this year are all original concepts.

    It's really funny you guys point out the spider, because I was saying that should be one Then noticed the Identity V one and it's a mix of humanoid and spider, so think Hag in terms of feral killer design. I'd be in love. And all the cosmetics would be cool.

    My second idea is an original scarecrow killer (not jeepers creepers), who uses a sickle and his map is a rotten pumpkin patch. His power would either be to summon homing crows that act as aura revealers for a short time or a murder of crows that do so, or he spawns in with inanimate scarecrows which he can both jump into and hide in or teleport between. Not thinking of balance per se just quick ideas.

    I want Krampus for the killer around Christmas time. They could give him like a giant creepy mansion as the map.

    I also hope a high cultist priest of the Entity, brought forth into the Fog as a reward for countless sacrifice, would eventually be one.

    With the trapper and hag getting buffs my buddies and I have been guessing the next killer is trap based, that would be nice.

    Any unique trap based killer ideas?
  • MinusTheBillieMinusTheBillie Member Posts: 349
    Well that's just awful. 
  • TradebaronTradebaron Member Posts: 135
    Issue is too though, even a new licensed killer, it's unlikely any cosmetics could be done with them. Original killers can have all sorts of cosmetics which means more revenue for them so I suspect original killers are priority

    They may not add Jason as trapper is a spin off of him. ( Like hillbilly and Leatherface.) But who knows because Leatherface is here so they might find a new power for him.

    Yeah, the devs mentioned that he has an open invitation. If they could, they would...or WHEN/IF they can they will. There are lots of abilities they could use instead of traps.

    Id like something like a Mothers Rage... Something's that builds over time, as gens are completed, or something that ups his speed, bumps up his bloodlust, and allows him to walk through pallets uninterrupted. 

    Or Mother's Watching, that shows survivors auras with a voiceline from Mama that sounds to everyone so they know. Pair this with a slower default speed, MAYBE ability to walk through pallets, and always a 1 hit down, and he's intimidating with a Jason feel from the movies. Slow, strong, and scary. 

    Even a shift like in F13 might be cool. 

    Lots of unique options that could work for him and set him apart from Trappy.
