Dead by Daylight, the multiplayer horror game that pits one player as a nigh-unstoppable killer and four others as resilient survivors, has seen more than its fair share of downloadable content. The lone killer setup is just begging for horror icons, which is exactly what the game has been getting since release.

Players have been able to inhabit Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Ghostface, and more horror icons. Even the Demorgorgon from Stranger Things has made an appearance. Along with these killers, the DLC also brings the appropriate survivors, like Laurie Strode from Halloween and Steve Harrington from Stranger Things. With the new Silent Hill DLC, players can hunt Silent Hill 3 protagonist Cheryl Mason as the dreaded Executioner, otherwise known as Pyramid Head.

The Silent Hill downloadable content became available yesterday. Along with the characters, the pack also includes Midwich Elementary School as a new map. Pyramid Head wields his trademark giant sword and is just as terrifying here as he is in the Silent Hill series. The DLC is only $6.99 on Steam, though it’s $7.99 on the Microsoft store.

In celebration of Dead by Daylight: Silent Hill, Konami has dropped a total of seven soundtracks from the series on the Spotify music service. If that seems like a high number to you, keep in mind that there are almost a dozen games in the series. So that’s only a little over half of the soundtracks.

All of the soundtracks are from the main series, starting with the second entry. That’s Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 3, Silent Hill 4: The Room, Silent Hill: Origins, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and Silent Hill: Downpour. Akira Yamaoka composed the music for every entry in the series, with the exception of the last game, Silent Hill: Downpour. Daniel Licht, perhaps best known for the soundtrack to the Showtime show Dexter, took over music duties on that installment.

Spotify is a bit of a mess. If you try to search for the soundtracks, you’re going to get a lot of user playlists from people trying to piece together the soundtracks before they were officially available. While that’s a noble effort, and I personally have a lot of user playlists saved for when I can’t find official soundtracks, it makes it difficult to find specific things. Luckily, you can just search for Konami Europe’s Spotify profile and find all the soundtracks there (along with the Castlevania soundtracks).

Do we have any Yamaoka fans here with any particular favorites? I’m personally partial to You’re Not Here off of the Silent Hill 3 soundtrack.
