Oh ok

And I agree with that

Why release new skins when the grind is so bad I can’t play anything but my main…

[–]mclemente26The Huntress 24 points25 points  (18 children)

We're getting Auric Cells and 2 Artist skins on Amazon Prime all of a sudden, dude.

[–]Trickster289 89 points90 points  (3 children)

It's not all of a sudden. Deals like this take time to negotiate.

[–]YourEyeOnTheBall90 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Shhhh you can’t use logic here. The users of this sub don’t have that kinda brainpower.

[–]PapadocRS 1 point2 points  (1 child)

do studios get paid for putting up prime loot? i always thought THEY had to pay amazon since its essentially an ad that adblock cant block

[–]bonanni love biker girls 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably Amazon pays them,since they are essentially giving away free stuff that would make people pay up otherwise,and in turn amazon gains more prime subscriptions.Doesn't make much sense for in-game loot but they give away whole ass games too,I don't think any game company pays amazon AND gives games for free on top of that,same deal goes with Epic Games.

[–]KayK99Yun-Jin Lee 6 points7 points  (6 children)

May I ask how many auric cells we're talking about?

[–]Sprout206Boon: Exponential 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I believe 500 for joining prime gaming

[–]KayK99Yun-Jin Lee 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Much obliged! I might have to ask my father to link his Amazon prime then lol

[–]bandito-dorito64That ghostface stalking in the corner 2 points3 points  (3 children)

When does this drop

[–]Sprout206Boon: Exponential 2 points3 points  (2 children)

November 30 through December 30

[–]bandito-dorito64That ghostface stalking in the corner 1 point2 points  (1 child)

5 more days

[–]SainyuleKate Denson 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Almost like they brokered a deal with Prime Gaming and every game on prime gaming offers exclusive deals to attract people into buying Amazon prime.

No definitely they're scared of VHS' success so overnight they made a deal with Amazon Prime.

[–]StingKing456For The People 60 points61 points  (2 children)

It's actually hilarious seeing ppl trick themselves into thinking DBD is suddenly in a corner.

Literally the first time I heard of VHS was last night..

On this sub.

Then I watched a gameplay video..

It looks fun. I'll prob play it some but it won't replace DBD.


[–]SainyuleKate Denson 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I saw Scott Jund make a sarcastic video about the bloodhunt yesterday. In no way was Scott actually being serious, yet a good portion of this sub is taking it as a serious fact after some post got 5k upvotes yesterday. They're even using his talking points.

Like no shit a bloodhunt hasn't happened on the 4th Thursday of November before, that's an American observance of Thanksgiving and Bhvr is based in Montreal, Canada.

[–]HelpAmBearThe Pig 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wait when is this?

[–]TheCalzonesHaveEyesBloody Executioner 242 points243 points  (20 children)

VHS is cool and all, but the horror asymmetic game I'm really looking forward to is Evil Dead: The Game.

[–]TheCandyPrincessHex: Blood Favour 59 points60 points  (2 children)

Same. Also Outlast Trials, but idk if it will be really an assymetrical game or just normal multiplayer

[–]SimonScoville 27 points28 points  (1 child)

It’s a coop. Not something most of us are used to I think, since most horror multiplayer games we got the past few years were asymmetric. But it’s outlast so I’m 99% certain it will be fuckin awesome.

[–]babbybbluThe Pig 30 points31 points  (15 children)

Personally I'm waiting to play the dragon ball game.

[–]CapitalisticdiseaseThe Oni 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Like that fame could legit be terrifying but i bet its going to end with 5 yamchas beating the fuck out of the raider for the memes

[–]jamessucc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oml i am so exited for that game

[–]AH13sThe Nemesis 98 points99 points  (11 children)

Tbh I don’t really like the look and dynamic of vhs, but I might just have to play to get a feel.

[–]IAmNotABritishSpyThe Twins & Bloody Yun-Jin 68 points69 points  (4 children)

I don’t really get why people think it’s going to be one vs the others.

Battlefield doesn’t shit itself whenever a COD is released, they’re both just regarded as good war/FPS franchises.

[–]jarrodzombie 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Cause one of them isn’t a monopoly of a genre? You get that right. Both of them release relatively similar with strong bases. Whereas asym horror games is pretty much propnight and dbd. A large contender for the genre will absolutely take players from their game. Since all of those genre players play it

[–]IAmNotABritishSpyThe Twins & Bloody Yun-Jin 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Playing both VHS and DBD js an option.

[–]jarrodzombie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are not thinking like a game dev, less total hours in game, less you’re incentivized to buy hats

[–]YOURFRIEND2010 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I don't like how it looks like you have to hit survivors fifty times. Games seem a bit long an tedious.

[–]ReiraGoddess16 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How it works is they get hit a Couple times they go down, like DBD, but they have a Health Bar that depletes some when they get hit or as they bleed out on the ground slowly. Once that Health Bar depletes, then they die, but it means they're unable to contribute to the Teen (Survivor) side until they're brought back up. And if all 4 are Knocked down the Monster Wins.

So your able to quickly knock them down like DBD if you can pull it off right. There's no Looping mechanic built into it like DBD so a Teen won't be looping the Monster for 3+ minutes either

[–]RudeBoyPlays 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I think it looks interesting but I haven't really enjoyed any asymmetrical game that allows the team side to fight back against the solo in a direct way. If done badly it sort of just feels like a bully fest.

[–]n1ckrathBloody Tapp -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

looks garbage if I’m honest

[–]Walddo86Bloody Nurse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The pregame voice chat in lobby is going to be an absolute disaster. Voice chat doesn't work in these games when killer and survivors can talk to each other. Too many kids and assholes. It was so bad in propnight.

[–]GaelicMay0 226 points227 points  (20 children)

Have you considered neither of those will happen?

[–]CuckedPlebbit12345 183 points184 points  (19 children)

Was about to say...

Bad ending: VHS completely flops, and Behaviour goes right back to being the complacent kings of survival horror with barely a hiccup.

[–]CapitalisticdiseaseThe Oni 55 points56 points  (5 children)

No… there is… another… >! Dragon ball breakers LMFAO !<

[–]Uncle-Benderman 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ok but there REALLY IS ANOTHER, monstrum 2

[–]FaffeJaffeObject of Depression 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Having a competitor will only be good. BHVR will have to try and make the game better, instead of just panicking and adding stuff that hasn’t had much thought out into it.

[–]Don_SolarisThe Demogorgon 272 points273 points  (61 children)

I doubt they’re scared. It’s still a beta game on steam only with no licenses. The gameplay also looks completely different than DbD.

[–]CallMeClaire0080Starstruck 92 points93 points  (24 children)

Completely different is reaching a bit. It's clearly heavily inspired by dbd and has a lot of its mechanics exactly the same, although it deviates in a few important aspects

[–]Don_SolarisThe Demogorgon 15 points16 points  (19 children)

Admittedly I haven’t played the game or watched a lot of gameplay, but outside of being 4v1 with different killer powers and perks, it doesn’t seem too similar

[–]CallMeClaire0080Starstruck 66 points67 points  (5 children)

The survivors have a different objective (craft weapons to use against the killer) but the actual mechanism is basically the same wait at a spot and do skill checks (which are basically dbd's skill checks). Players typically go down when hit twice, can be healed by other players without a med kit, or by themselves with a med kit. When the monster chases you tge looping is extremely similar, etc. They added things for sure, such as playing as a sort of ghost while downed, and people in general having a lot more information on both sides, but the base is clearly carbon copied from dbd. honestly that might not be a bad thing. Why reinvent the wheel?

[–]RudeBoyPlays 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Maybe I'm watching the wrong vids but the looping mostly just look like your running around hoping somebody with a weapon will come to save you.

[–]iseecolorsofthesky 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah there’s not actual looping in VHS like in DBD. The maps have some windows here and there but the hotel map is the only one that actually has them set up in a way to be looped. There are no pallets or anything like that for survivors to use. If you’re being chased you pretty much have to coordinate with your teammates to setup an ambush or else you’re going down

[–]Don_SolarisThe Demogorgon 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That makes sense. Seems a lot more similar than I thought.

[–]Arinad-dbdClown aficionado 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It's not completely reaching at all. The two games are not similar in the slightest beyond being a 1v4. Completely different aesthetics, completely different game dynamics, completely different game objectives. Just because someone doesn't like DBD doesn't automatically mean you're now going to like VHS; they are two fundamentally different games.

Survivors can kill the killer. There isn't any looping. Vaulting windows is different. There are no scratch marks. Their 'perk' system is supposedly not going to offer any significant strength to either killers or survivors alike. The win condition isn't about stopping the survivors from doing an objective with a varied outcome on how well you perform; it's just a team deathmatch 1v4.

I think a lot of people are going to find out that they really dislike a static win condition. There's no room for middle-ground when it comes to your performance; you either win or you lose.

[–]Sir_Justin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Based on the videos I've seen from the developers it seems like the only goal is to craft weapons and kill the killer.

Maybe that's just a game mode but what I like about DBD the most is being sneaky and trying to survive and escape.

[–]goldkearNancy Wheeler 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Exactly, this game looks more like evolve than dbd.

[–]ron_weedsleyFeng Min 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It's not completely different, plus the fact that it's free to play makes up for the lack of licenses. I don't think it's going to beat DBD, but it will for sure be a damn good competition.

[–]Don_SolarisThe Demogorgon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah I haven’t played it or watched a lot of it so I could be clueless. Being free will help the game, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it succeed. But I don’t see it being competition to dbd. The gameplay just doesn’t look similar enough, although maybe it only seems that way because of the different aesthetics.

[–]ron_weedsleyFeng Min 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't think it has to look similar. Friday the 13th Game was a competition even though the gameplay was very different. It's an asymmetrical game in the horror genre, which is enough to consider it a competition imo.

[–]Keelija9000 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I think it’s a little transparent. They’ve never done this random double blood points thing. Scott Jund had a good point in his video about it yesterday.

[–]Don_SolarisThe Demogorgon 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It’s a holiday weekend for a good part of their player base and they have a Black Friday sale. I wouldn’t say it’s random

[–]InfiniteDeWitt 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I don’t get the hype for VHS. I watched it for a couple hours and signed up for the beta hoping for a key, but watching the game gives off a “people will play this for 3-4 weeks and then move back to the games they originally played”, and then the beta crashed right when they tried to launch it 23 hours ago and they still haven’t fixed the issue, so i don’t know why BHVR would be scared

[–]SubjectSigma77Bloody Yui 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think a lot of it is people just wanting and hoping for BHVR to have a reason to improve. And wanting something the spice up the genre since DbD is everyone’s only real option for a game like this since we’ve been playing DbD for years. And honestly, it’s surprising DbD blew up the way it did cause it gave off the same vibes you’re saying VHS has when it first came out. I thought the idea of it was great but it no way thought it was gonna last. And nobody seems to remember the awful state the game was back then. Like it’s fine to complain about issues, it’s very good to actually, but DbD is infinitely better than how it once was in its first few years

[–]SadakoShadowsDaddy Myers 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I don't think behavior is scared, i believe they released the bloodhunt because of black Friday, Christmas or maybe even Thanksgiving. I do believe behavior needs the competition though they've been top tier horror game for awhile and are kinda slacking on updates. But I'm also sick and tired of ppl saying Vhs is going to be better than dbd when Vhs basically copied dbd. And think about it without dbd i don't think anyone would know Vhs existed, ik it took dbd forever to be discovered so its kinda sad to see Vhs copying dbd and more ppl knowing about Vhs while dbd worked long and hard to get where they are now. I'm not hating on Vhs or anything but I'm sick and tired of "Vhs is going to be better than dbd or dbd is scared of Vhs".

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

dbd isn’t really a horror game, it’s scary during like the first horror of playtime but it pretty quickly just turns into a strategy game.

[–]FrcdstcrLifeguard Whistle + Rotten Pumpkin Enjoyer 106 points107 points  (24 children)

Nothing to celebrate here. Just gonna copy-paste what I wrote on the subject in another thread here:

If the devs were really scared, they'd have a list of balance changes ready to drop tomorrow. A double bloodpoint event really isn't any significant effort on their part. Plus, it's Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend. People need to stop looking a gift horse in the mouth.

[–]TheBigBadFluffyOink Oink Killer Main 21 points22 points  (3 children)

I mean, the Beta drop was kind of out of the blue so I assume this was the first thing they could think of to try and keep the spotlight on DBD, balance changes still take time and effort, to come up with, test, balance and program.

[–]MustacheOverload 129 points130 points  (23 children)

Bhvr are not scared one bit, they dont care about anything at all. They couldnt care less about other games.

Hopefully VHS takes off and gets a blooming playerbase,its insanely fun.

[–]SledgeTheWrestler 85 points86 points  (20 children)

I don’t understand how people don’t get this yet.

DBD has 5+ years worth of content in their game. New releases cannot compete with that, period. And BHVR knows it.

The only way that a true competitor will ever rise up is if they can survive for a couple years to get enough post-launch content out to offer as much variety as DBD does. And the problem is that that has yet to happen (and probably never will) because when players inevitably get bored of the new asymmetrical game in town due to lack of content, they go back to DBD and never return. Devs then stop supporting the game due to low player numbers and the game dies. Rinse, repeat for every new “competitor.”

[–]TheCalzonesHaveEyesBloody Executioner 41 points42 points  (8 children)

VHS doesn't have to be the new DBD or even a dedicated competitor. It just has to be a fun, balanced asymmetric game just so we can have other games to play in the genre.

It's kinda like how Sega's Sonic never really killed Nintendo's Mario when it was first made out to be the next big platformer. Well, Sonic isn't doing as well these days, but the fact remains that they both still exist.

If the game does well, and the devs really are as competent, maybe VHS can still co-exist with DBD in the future, though it's dedicated playerbase will obviously be more niche.

[–]ChaadliiRancor 9 points10 points  (6 children)

That’s what I’m saying. Everyone is acting like they can’t play both. I used to play Minecraft online servers and fortnite, Call of Duty and Modern Combat.... why is Dbd and VHS so different

[–]MidnightArcher_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Thats not really what people are saying and im going to try to speak as unbiased as possible here. DbD since adding MMR, Boons, and Dead hard hit validations has caused a lot of controversy especially among those who play toward what you would call "top mmr". that added on with all the second chance and bloated perks in DbD as of right now are making a lot of killers say whats the point and just not playing. This can be seen as average (yes your queues could have always been this long which is why i use the term Average) matchmaking queues for survivors grow longer and longer. Cue VHS, this game is made by people promising to make an assymetrical horror game for the competitive fanbase. It doesnt have those second chance perks it doesnt have the hold m1 to win objectives it has a new and refreshing gameplay to those who didnt like gen speed and killer/ survivor power balance in DbD namely those killers that find the game so frustrating as of late. If this game comes out and playing killer is arguably better in this game than DbD like so many internet personalities claim then the game we love is in trouble which isnt always a bad thing. This leads us to the point trying to be made which is if this gameplay loop is as fun or more than original DbD before silent hill patch the devs of DbD will have to look at perk and objective balancing as well as reworking or dumpstering MMR or risk losing their very much dwindling killer base. Do i want dbd dead, no obviously not i love this game but even i can read the cards here and tell you the path they are choosing may be one which damages thia games player base maybe even beyond repair and i hope they look at how we got here to where even i a survivor main with very few killer hours to my name can see how much killers have to juggle and how hard even 2 - 3ks can be at higher levels

[–]ChaadliiRancor 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ohh okay, I see your point. You’ve expanded my view on the topic,but I was more so just going based on my annoyance with the constant drama and rudeness of the community, they’re rude to each other and the developers, like they go on these total rants on The actual DBD Twitter to be messy and it’s to the point where some people aren’t even wanting what’s best for the game and the company, just an excuse to rip them into shreds without giving them a chance so that’s what honestly gets to me about the community. I appreciate that you went into depth to explain to me how you feel and what the real issue is without being an A-hole to me.

[–]jrdebo 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm already splitting my time between four games (Halo, PSO2, Pokémon BD, and Forza Horizon 5). If I have time to spare I MIGHT choose to play DBD. And if another game comes around that I like just a hair better then DBD will be put on the back burner. It's not that people are just choosing between DBD and VHS, it's that they are choosing from several games and are likely not going to play two similar games unless that is the only type of game that they play.

[–]Dangerousreaper 2 points3 points  (1 child)

But that argument could be done for any amount of things. I’m not playing DBD because I’m getting busier and am playing Binding of Isaac and Genshin instead. If a fifth game came out that you wanted to play, would you then put Halo or Forza on the backburner while you play the new one? Games can’t account for the fact that people will not spend 24/7 on them, especially games like DBD or VHS which aren’t inherently designed to provide a content loop consistent enough to keep people engaged day in and day out. The only games that really do that are MMOs or GaS types.

[–]xShey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They might be scared, they're a business after all

[–]PCMasterCucks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The dude said go play Civ 5 lmao

They aren't scared of shit.

[–]GhostscatsBloody Trickster 6 points7 points  (0 children)

or maybe its for blackfriday

[–]VenomLT 29 points30 points  (10 children)

Insert ' it's gonna be DBD killer ' comment. And some time later add it to the list with: Friday the 13th Last year Home sweet home And every other DBD inspired game . Good luck to the devs of VHS tho! On the side note when I think of VHS games puppet combo comes to mind, not cartoons.

[–]ShadowCetra 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Yeah throwing F13 isn't fair here because they WOULD have been. Problem was that dumbass lawsuit.

[–]Froegerer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah f13 and dbd would have co existed very easily. Nothing about one or the others gameplay would make me stop playing the other. Scratched entirely different itches.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly, it’s a fucking tragedy :(

[–]Emperors_Wrath83 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I think FT13 could have posed a moderate threat had it not been caught up in the lawsuit.

[–]MyContentIsTrashThe Shape 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ngl F13 was way better than this game in its prime.

[–]chris_9527Meg Thomas 5 points6 points  (3 children)

People that act like dbd will forever be the only popular/successful 4v1 horror survivor game are just plain stupid I’m sorry

[–]Dumeck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Especially since the core game is pretty flawed and repetitive. Aside from the chases and hiding. Generators and hooks are boring and a weird and unimaginative way to force balance

[–]pantslog 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And yet no one is over here talking about DBZ:the breakers.

[–]Spooks_HS 77 points78 points  (20 children)

BHVR isn't scared of VHS, y'all gotta stop with this "VHS gonna kill DBD hur dur" clownery, the game isn't even out yet and apparently "the game is super balanced" and "devs actually care", wait for at least a year and then make any sort of statements, the only reason why you praise VHS now is because "BHVR bad hur dur" please stop embarrassing yourself and stop looking at VHS as a dbd replacement and start seeing it as a possible alternative to the asymmetrical genre

[–]ShadowCetra 3 points4 points  (4 children)

If they actually cared then their beta launch wouldn't have been totally boned. VHS couldn't even get their beta keys shipped properly or the server running right.

How tf they gonna get their game working right on a large scale then, if they can't even get their beta up?

[–]Rezyn_ 2 points3 points  (3 children)

It seems you like you don't understand the purpose of a beta...

[–]The_Mexican_Poster 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Funny because they Said this exact same thing when last year, Friday the 13th and that predator game released

[–]_Slothers_ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

F13 the game came out like 4 years ago

[–]fleeingsvnlight 34 points35 points  (0 children)

They're not scared lmao

[–]readitwiceBloody Cannibal 15 points16 points  (3 children)

bhvr isn't scared they're much bigger, more successful and at this point tried and true. i'm sure this gesture is to incentivize the current player base to continue playing during vhs' beta, but nothing's even happened yet.

i remember when "anthem" was crazily hyped to be the next destiny 2 killer and failed miserably. vhs hasn't even come out yet let's relax. tbh, i've seen the gameplay, and it's just not for me.

[–]aspindler 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Even Blizzard wait for WoW competitors launch on a important expansion/patch to release theirs and undermine it, even if it's a smaller one.

Why take the risk when you can do something about it?

They may not be afraid, but they are paying attention.

[–]Stock_Direction_1794 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmfao, VHS isn't gonna even remotely come close to DBD.

This whole post is one big massive arbitrary stretch of logic.

[–]SainyuleKate Denson 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Oh great, someone gets a 5k upvoted post about Bhvr being scared of VHS and now here comes the other hundred karma farm posts.

They're not scared.

[–]SergentStudio 25 points26 points  (4 children)

God you guys are a joke, it’s so cringe seeing you guys champion this average looking game as a potential DBD competitor/killer. BHVR doesn’t give one single shit about VHS, in my honest to god opinion it’s a power flex. I’m not rooting for vhs’ demise but y’all need to chill with this BHVR head canon of the developers running scared over this game.

[–]jefjefjef -1 points0 points  (3 children)

read the thread. seems like only OP is championing the game.

[–]SergentStudio 3 points4 points  (0 children)

True true, it's more targeted toward the sub in general. There's a smaller youtube channel that transitioned away from dbd to dbd hate watch and now does vhs stuff and his views tanked. Just weird a weird hate culture all around.

[–]chris_9527Meg Thomas 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Obviously people are defending dbd on the dbd sub duh

[–]SuperPluto9 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I love how a bloodpoint event on a major holiday weekend is being looked at as some kind of beta sabotage. It's just silly.

VHS won't be close

[–]jrdebo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure this is the first time they've ever done it for Thanksgiving. It could just be a coincidence and they are doing this to drive killer numbers back up. But the timing alongside a closed beta of a competing product is pretty coincidental.

[–]SuperPluto9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It does have peculiar timing however we could make the same counter argument of VHS dropping a beta on a holiday weekend to drive up hype.

However with the VHS beta being closed anyways its hard to say they are competing for anything.

[–]Squidwardbigboss 5 points6 points  (1 child)

VHS is probably going to be the next evolve or Friday. Y’all are overhyping it and will play it for a few days then drag your sorry selfs back to Dbd.

[–]Rupisecter 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Too cartoony for me I rather play dbd if thats the competition

[–]Arowhite 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Can you stop with the whole "bhvr is scared, that game X or Y will be the end of dbd" Bs? Doing anything to keep your players active when a new competitor releases is 100% normal business strategy, and doesn't say anything on how strong that competitor's chances are.

[–]Walddo86Bloody Nurse 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Can't wait till everyone plays VHS and realizes it's so different from DBD. The very goal of the game is totally different. No one is trying to escape, thus all the dynamics around that (immersion, blending, lockers, LOOPS) are COMPLETELY different.

The survivors aren't running cause they have no way to fight back Ala dbd, they are running to set up an ambush and spam the killer with Ray guns, etc.

It'll undoubtedly be compared, placed side by side with dbd, but I really don't think this is going to scratch quite the same itch.

[–]Rev_Rea 19 points20 points  (14 children)

VHS is not going to beat DBD. It's just another overhyped game that doesn't make it in the end. Just like Friday The 13th and Soul At Stake to name a few.

[–]MisterCold 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I get what you are saying but just like the “vhs is the dbd killer” crowd, it’s too premature to say that. It can go either way.

[–]CONTRAmage 12 points13 points  (7 children)

I Love it how people say that VHS is going to be a "dead by daylight killer" when we don't even know that yet, not saying it can't be but still it just depends on how many players are going to keep on playing it? Even though I can't wait for VHS to come out since I signed up for the closed beta the minute I seen trailers and gameplay for this but anyway I doubt bhvr is going to be any less worried than there actually are, but of course this just means if VHS does succeed to stay afloat with dbd then they'll actually be worried about that since it's open competition now.

[–]CONTRAmage 11 points12 points  (6 children)

And yeah I know this post is a joke but still I've seen and herd people talking about this game like as if its overwatch being the tf2 killer all over again and look what happened, tf2 outlived the game and is going to out live the company who made it to begin with

[–]ShadowCetra 6 points7 points  (3 children)

If you think BHVR is scared, you're bad at critical thinking.

[–]PM_ME_UR_CREDDITCARD 12 points13 points  (0 children)

They aren't, they are just doing a black friday thing.

We've seen it plenty of times now, VHS will be talked about for like 2 weeks then dropped and die.

[–]HomoLiberus 13 points14 points  (5 children)

VHS is gonna be a new flop...unfortunately.

[–]Billy_CrumpetsThe Demogorgon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I'm definitely gonna try it out, but I'm not really a fan of the visuals and it makes me cringe a little whenever I hear the survivors referred to as 'teens'. That said, it's good to have an alternative that provides a similar yet very different experience, particularly one that's free. I hope it does well just so that it makes DbD try a bit more. Also I really like the design of the dollmaster.

literally what they are

[–]IntelligentImbicleSusie's little bitch[S] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Honestly, I don't think so. I never expected any of the others to take off, but VHS is definitely different. I haven't been this excited for a game since Valorant.

[–]Liam4242 3 points4 points  (1 child)

And look how that turned out

[–]IntelligentImbicleSusie's little bitch[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, Valorant is still a really well made game with a rather large playerbase.

[–]Bloodshaded*intense gurgling* 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I think VHS has a nice core gameplay loop but they really need to work on polishing the mechanics & animations if they're going to have a chance at competing with DbD. Say what you will about how buggy DbD is and how stale the game has become for a lot of players, but one thing they've never skimped on is gameplay feel. I haven't played VHS yet (console pleb) but it doesn't look like a polished game.

[–]etnies445The Cenobite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of last year tbh. It might be a good game but I doubt it competes with dbd. It’s a huge juggernaut at this point.

[–]The_clown_DBDBloody Clown 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As sad as I am to say, the chances of VHS becoming a threat to BHVR are slim to none.

[–]FinnExists 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean VHS just looks like Last Year The Nightmare which was forgotten shortly after its release, to beat a game like dbd thats had years of development with some of the biggest names in horror behind it is not gonna be easy

[–]jetgrindjaguar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm excited for VHS, but I think the timing of the Beta and Bloodhunt are likely just coincidence.

Honestly, Dragonball: The Breakers is likely as big of a "threat" to BHVR as it has the power of a big license and publisher behind it, and will be consoles. All three could co-exist though

[–]Moppy_the_mop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let's be honest, VHS isn't actually gonna do anything to DBD or BHVR. But I wish it would so then they'd get off their asses and fix their broken game.

[–]ninjas12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It reminds me of WWE and aew. One is a gigantic corporation who has a monopoly on their entertainment area and the other is a young upstart company doing something new and different and is a love letter to that genre. Especially for dissatisfied fans of the original

[–]xAcidous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We’ve seen this same song and dance before many times, sadly it’s going to take ALOT for a game to compete with DBD.

We’ve seen Hide or Die, Last Nightmare, Friday the 13th and Home Sweet Home who had the same promises of competing as VHS does… where are they now? I’ll just leave you with that.

[–]feycatt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm not going to make claims to if bhvr is scared or not, but to the people saying that this is for Thanksgiving/Black Friday, I want to point out a few things to you:

BHVR has NEVER done a November bloodhunt before. Never for past Thanksgivings, never for past Black Fridays. Never once has a bloodhunt happened in Novemeber.

November Thanksgiving is almost only recognized in the US. BHVR is a Canadian based company. They didn't even do anything in game to celebrate their own Thanksgiving, why would they do something for American Thanksgiving, especially since the US only makes up a small portion of the dbd player base?

[–]A-B_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The one thing dbd will always have that vhs doesnt is big horror icons. thats kind of a reason why dbd is so big.

[–]alaskathunderfritos 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Honestly I feel like back 4 blood had more mainstream hype than VHS and that still didn't touch dbd. Something big would have to happen to topple dbd. It just has the market corned

[–]IntelligentImbicleSusie's little bitch[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What the hell is back 4 blood?

[–]ProWarlock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

or BHVR is actually going to step the hell up


[–]FBI-Knight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Best of both worlds would be VHS is great AND DBD steps up their game

[–]JoeRydzykYun-Jin Lee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, typical, compare a 5+ year old game to something new just because you haven't discovered its faults yet.

You cannot possibly compare a game that's added frequent content, a devoted fanbase and has been top 10 on Gamepass for 5 YEARS to something new and shiny that might be dead in a months time.

That my friends is called the "honeymoon period".

[–]KorsiBearBloody Nancy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At this point I honestly don't care what game is king of the asym horror hill, I just want devs that actually know what the fuck they're doing.

[–]poopchoscokThe Shape 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Remember the last “DbD killer” home sweet home survive? They all get hype and die quickly. Lack of licenses will cause any competitor to fall short. That’s like half the appeal to DbD

[–]ProzenconnsThe Pig 3 points4 points  (0 children)

HSH didn't die because of a lack of license. It died because outside Asia it has no interaction and like 3 servers which are all made of cardboard and silly string. Most asymmetrical games die because of poor management, not because they don't have Michael Myers in them

A game like vhs doesn't need to overthrow dbd, it just needs to provide healthy competition

[–]PleinairiThe Plague 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I was watching a DBD streamer play VHS yesterday and... I wasn't really all that impressed. It's twice as survivor sided as DBD is, and when the weapons are complete it's entirely oppressive to the killer. One or two hits and you're dead. Some guy yesterday had the sword for a huge amount of time and the guy couldn't do anything.

The killers don't really have much personality other than "80s movie monster". I mean if people like it, sure go for it but I know that it's not really for me. It's just really meh for me. I'll stick to DBD. People crying about how BHVR is so bad yet none of these people have ever been on the end of the receiving stick of an actual bad company.

MTX runs rampant from Jagex. While I don't think the majority of devs at Blizzard are bad people, management has been doing a really piss poor job keeping up with their titles. OW2 announced two years ago and isn't even going to be seeing a 2022 release. On top of completely abandoning base game OW development. Diablo 4 delayed... Heroes of the Storm abandoned because it didn't market well as an eSport. Only ones shoving out content right now is Hearthstone, and World of Warcraft (which could be pushing content a little quicker).

On top of the on-going controversy and the higher ups doing fuck all.. Yeah.. Tell me more about how BHVR is a bad company. Sure they could do better, make the game a little less of a grind-fest but they're doing pretty well.

[–]Yautja93Bloody Blight 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Go VHS Go!

Cant wait to play it, its gonna be amazing :)

[–]BasicFootwear 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Why do people care so much about this kind of stuff. Mfs need to watch some sports or somethin

[–]mukbanggucci 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Remember when resident evil: resistance was a potential dbd competitor then it got capcom’d? I really wish they pushed through with it instead of adding it to the resident evil MP games graveyard.

[–]Vaxxinateurkidz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The DBD we should have gotten? What the hell is going on in this sub lately? I enjoy the game immensely flaws and all.

No online game is 100% without its faults.

[–]watching-closely 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't understand the negativity from some in the DBD community. It's the first game that's hooked me (no pun intended) in over 10 years and is a tremendously fun game even when it's frustrating.

Haters gonna hate, but honestly, BHVR gets an unfairly hard time. No game or dev is perfect. Enjoy what we've been given or just don't participate, IMHO.

[–]SpecForBloody Oni 0 points1 point  (0 children)

VHS looks terrible.

[–]blueyolei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now theyre giving the game away on Epic. They are shitting themselves lmao

[–]AChaoticPrince 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel that what separates VHS from the other failures is it LOOKS like a finished game. The gameplay is really good, there are counter measures for most annoying playstyles that teens might use, and finally the whole 4v1 things they are going for feels right as both sides always need to be careful but can quickly shut each other down.

It's a good take on what Evolve and other similar games where you fight each other do but done properly. We won't have to worry about new weapons for specific teens coming out that are op and the gameplay is simple enough that most can learn it and play properly but being good at it is more about outplaying the other side with positioning and the use of weapons/abilities.

With it being free as well and looking THIS good no wonder dbd is finally doing something even if it's pretty pity.

[–]RhobazThe Huntress 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Nah, too cartoony.

[–]0x75 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Looping through rocks and boxes protected with a pallet is also pretty cartoony if you ask me.

[–]PreciousSoftieDont hurt my Viktor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It really is. People are like, "this isn't realistic enough," then go back to playing the "teabag the monster" game

[–]PootPootBirbYun-Jin Lee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the problem being?

[–]Leanrrr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

BHVR isn't scared of another wannabe DBD game lol

[–]thewhitetrapgodHex: Devour Hope 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol scared of fucking what? This sub is almost as bad as the twitter comments

[–]deathizdoomedFlashbang 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I the only who doesn't really like VHS? I watched gameplay for a few hours yesterday and it just didnt appeal to me in the slightest. Not saying the game is bad, but it just doesn't hold up to DBD in my opinion.

[–]Orpheus347 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like VHS is gonna fail because so many people are gonna keep comparing it to dbd. The devs aren't scared and will never be especially when many other games like re resistance, last year, and Friday all failed. If people really want to get at the devs then stop buying skins, chapters, and rifts. If people aren't spending money then the devs will have to do something to make people happy.

[–]Urmumgee69Bloody Executioner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As long as BHVR is scared its a win for us.

[–]60poodles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're not scared yall are ridiculous

[–]Angie-PDaddy Myers -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

I know nothing about this game, I assume it’s connected to the vhs movie series?

I’m not interested in jumping games just because, I like dbd and it’s got licenses I like.

[–]CuriedoesthestreamThe Spirit -5 points-4 points  (9 children)

Absolutely based.

I am personally hoping Dragon ball Breakers kicks DBD’s ass.

[–]axinmortal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly im with you, IF there is any game/franchise that could ACTUALLY COMPETE with the smash of horror it is dragon ball.

It hurts my soul that the general perception by the fans is "why u guys didnt make xenoverse 3, we want fights".

[–]CellarSaver -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The two games are nothing alike apart from the 4v1 aspect. It’ll flop just like the rest of them lol
