Crossplay question in the survey

Did anyone voted against it?

Also, devs, you asked our opinion "just to ask" or is there something coming...?

    I voted against it mostly because there's definitely ability gaps between people bound to a controller and people with access to mouse and keyboard

    I think they want input on what they should prioritize. I'm assuming everything they suggested is a possibility they're considering and partially based on feedback they'll decide when to start working on what (if ever).

    I voted that I'd be very interested in it but they need to close the performance gap between PC and console further first.

    I'm nervous because console is such a ######### show we'd be at a disadvantage vs pc players

    Considering that the game isn't a shooter both side would play the same unless it's huntress or nurse but that's it other than that nothing changes so cross platform has only those 2 downsides and if they add mouse and keyboard support to console then there is no down side anyone can use keyboard anyone can use controller

    All of the survey questions are purely to gauge interest. We want to see what you think about them before we start working on any of them.

    I voted against it, its a terrible idea to put a pc player vs a console player as the time frame between mouse inputs and controller are huge plus frame rate differences.

    I voted in favor, console players are potato for me on pc, and as killer will be an ez pz

    I think the pc community is big enough to be isolated, but between consoles would be a great success, I do not know much about it but I understand that the queues in console are really bad, and its main reason is the shortage of population, when the dedicated servers arrive, the queues will improve a lot because the matchmaking does not need to match according to the geolocation. Even so, it would be much better with crossplay.

    I voted for it. Cross platform meaning, Switch, XBox and PS4.

    Dead by Daylight in PC gaming is far superior in terms with FPS, and mobility that would wreck console players.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 5,299

    We should have the choice of it. I think fortnite allows you to choose whether you want to play against other platforms or not.

    I have a few friends on PC that I would love to play with. But yea it would be a lot more difficult to compete against them.

    144 fps mouse + keyboard nurse vs 30-60fps controller survivors.

    I voted against.

    I really don't want to play against console killers, they're gonna have an even harder time catching survivors that use kb/m. It's not a good idea if you ask me.

    I doubt Crossplay would be allowed between console and PC. Case in point? Bill Overbeck. He's PC exclusive, and on top of that, all of his teachables are neutral perks in the console versions, meaning there would be more issues than it would be worth.

    I believe the devs wanted him playable in the console versions, but for one reason or another, it was disallowed, and led to the situation with console players we have today.

  • bradys44bradys44 Member Posts: 105

    I think because of the skill gap that PS4 & XB1 should crossplay. Sorry PC players but you're way better than us and I'm not trying to hate the game.

  • Mat_SellaMat_Sella Member Posts: 2,977

    y'all know you can plug your M+KB into the PS4, right? what in tarnation is your logic?

  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 8,227

    Regardless of what we want, it won't happen. Sony is notorious for not allowing crossplay, and you can't have crossplay between just 3 of 4 platforms. It would be all or nothing.

  • Kalec84Kalec84 Member Posts: 480

    They just can fix fps and add key/mouse option in console, also just make it optional for console owners (since all devs across many games are saying it is basically one line of code...)

  • ReikoMoriReikoMori Member Posts: 2,179

    You can plug them in, but the game has to have functionality support built into it or they won't work.

  • JonathanskilzJonathanskilz Member Posts: 403

    imagine if console could play with PC holly molly that would be so bad for console id feel so bad for them

  • PiiFreePiiFree Member Posts: 1,150

    I don't want to play with console scrubs... PC MASTERRACE!

  • HavelmomDaS1HavelmomDaS1 Member Posts: 1,948

    U as player would have an option to enable it like an other game with Crossplay support. U are kinda throwing stones into the way of people who really want this.

    Also, aren't the console players talking all time "console is competitive aswell and with practice better than pc players?"

    Furthermore, it's just a matter of time (probably with the next gen consoles) that mouse and keyboard will be supported on consoles. Microsoft is already trying the first attempts with exclusive hardware to play with m and k.

  • HavelmomDaS1HavelmomDaS1 Member Posts: 1,948

    Calm down buddy. This isn't call of duty, counter strike or any other high fps shooter game. This is DbD. The delay of wireless controller input is absolutely insignificant.

    Only professional e Sport players need these differences.

  • HavelmomDaS1HavelmomDaS1 Member Posts: 1,948

    You wouldn't be forced!!!

    Why is everyone assuming that Crossplay ability is automatically forcing console players to play against pc players?? You would have an option turn it on or off. And probably at one point u would wish to have this option activated to play with friends on other platforms. Or at least at the end of DbD's life, when the community shrinks down more and more.

  • HavelmomDaS1HavelmomDaS1 Member Posts: 1,948

    There is a difference between having access of an character and just showing a character.

    Also, you could put a requirement for pc players: wanna play with/against console players? Bill not allowed to pick.


  • T0xicTylerT0xicTyler Member Posts: 502

    I don't particularly care either way if they add cross-play or not but if they want the Switch version to sell, one great way to do that would be to at least allow us to use one Dead by Daylight account that holds all of our progression so us PC players could also play on the go.

  • Dwight_ConfusionDwight_Confusion Member Posts: 1,650

    It should be separated from console and pC. That's fine.

    I wouldn't want to embarass any elitist on PC anyways... ;)

    I would be cool with a Xbox/PS4 crossplay. That makes sense. If not, that's okay too.
