Dead by Daylight is a survival horror asymmetric multiplayer online game that requires a minimum of 5 players for each match. 4 Survivors and 1 killer.
Until Behaviour Interactive decides to add bots to Dead By Daylight – which they have done on Dead By Daylight Mobile – there’s no way to play the game without having a full complement of players, even in custom games.
Understandably then, some players might be wondering if they can play the game together in person, using Split Screen or local couch co-op. Which isn’t that crazy. We know most games don’t support these modes these days, but It Takes Two was a game of the year bafta winner and it was built on couch co-op as its central feature.
With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about split-screen and local co-op in Dead By Daylight.

Does Dead By Daylight Support Split-Screen or Local Co-Op Multiplayer?
Unfortunately no, Dead by Daylight does not support split-screen or local co-op multiplayer. It’s strictly only playable as an online multiplayer game.
Technically you could play local co-op multiplayer if you were to use different devices. For instance, using cross-play you could have multiple players in the same room using their own Nintendo Switch. Or likewise, one player on Switch, another on a home console, one on a laptop and someone else using a mobile device with Google Stadia.
It is, technically, possible, albeit potentially a bit of a faff.
However, there is absolutely no way to play split-screen so you can forget about doing that.
That’s everything you need to know about Split-Screen in Dead By Daylight. However, if you’re looking for more DBD guides then follow the links below for more helpful tips, tricks and explainers.
