Dead by Daylight has finally found its way onto the Epic Games Store and from today until December 10, you can add the game to your library for free. Share this piece of news with your friends so you can get hooked on this survival horror game together. You will only be receiving the base game but to celebrate the game’s arrival on the platform, most DLCs will be 50% off.
Besides the game arriving on the Epic Games Store, Behaviour Interactive has also released a new DLC - Portraits of a Murder - for the game. The latest DLC presents the new Killer Carmina Mora, a.k.a The Artist, a gifted Chilean artist whose life was saved by an ethereal murder of crows, and Survivor Jonah Vasquez - - a brilliant Mexican American CIA codebreaker. On top of that, there is also a brand new map for you to hunt or be hunted in, the Forsaken Boneyard is an abandoned graveyard inspired by the fascinating world of surrealist artwork.
Similar to the other Killers in the game’s roster, The Artist comes with a killer power to torment survivors. With Birds of Torment, she can summon Dire Crows to unleash a devastating assault that will bring dynamic gameplay possibilities to the already action-packed and tense gameplay. These Dire Crows will swarm Survivors, revealing their aura until the swarm is repelled and swarmed survivors hit by a second bird will take damage.
Last but not least is the arrival of The Everlasting Frost Collection that contains three Very Rare Outfits - Wintry Reverie Very Rare Outfit for The Artist; Crystalline Apparition Very Rare Outfit for The Spirit and Icebound Phantom Very Rare Outfit for Ghost Face.
while True: Learn () lets you learn about machine learning in a less boring method
Machine Learning is extremely useful but also extremely complicated to understand but if you have been interested in the topic, indie game development studio Luden.io’s while True: learn () is an interesting and more interactive way for you to learn about it. From today until December 10, you can get this simulator for free from the Epic Games Store.
In while True: learn (), you play as a machine learning specialist who uses visual programming to make a living but your cat seems to be better at it. Now you must solve puzzles to build a cat-to-human translation system to find out what else your cat is capable of. Throughout the game, you will earn a fortune, buy kickass cat outfits and learn how machine learning really works at the same time.
Just for your information, the game has even been used by schools and universities in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Russia, China and other countries to teach students about the basics of machine learning.
The Ascent receives explosive new paid Cybersec DLC pack
Swedish indie Studio, Neon Giant have been hard at work polishing up their cyberpunk action-shooter The Ascent and have recently released its first paid DLC pack ‘CyberSec’ alongside a slew of new updates.

This new DLC pack comes with two new weapons, the NEWT MGL grenade launch and RECOIL ballistic burst rifle; one new tactical equipment, the GR00P Cluster Grenade; four new BOOMBLOCK armour and four new animated weapon skins.
Besides the new DLC pack, Patch #5 will also be available for all players and introduces a brand new Transmogrification feature, allowing you to change your Indent’s appearance to match the visual style of any armour currently in your inventory by visiting the Stylist and paying a small fee. Once a visual style is applied, you can equip any armour based on your gameplay priorities whilst keeping your customised look.
Last but not least, Neon Giant has also unveiled its post-launch roadmap and shows that they will be introducing features such as NewGame+, new VO lines for side missions, a free Winter Pack in December, a paid update to the Chongqing Pack and a brand new Cyber-Warrior paid pack early next year.
Date Night Bowling lets you showcase your dating and minigame skills
If you are a fan of dating simulators and want something a little more “realistic” instead of having to date your weapons or take monsters to prom, publisher Way Down Deep and developer Serenity Forge have released Date Night Bowling where you can test if your dating skills will strike the right chords or be a total gutter ball.
In Date Night Bowling, you and one of 10 very special someones will hit the neon-lit bowling alley for a date. This is where the fun begins, but not where it ends. You will have to impress and woo your date by showing them your skills with a turkey or two, master the claw machine to get them some nice gifts, wine and dine them with snacks that they want and be a wonderful host as you work your way through multiple minigames to prove that the first date will absolutely not be the last.
That is not all as you can invite your real-life crush or partner to play this game with you as it supports single-player and local co-op. Who knows, you might actually woo them with your impressive gaming skills.
You can purchase Date Night Bowling from Steam.

Throughout the game, you will have to unleash nonstop mayhem on your opponents and you can do so by using the various power-ups and unique weapons such as rockets, swords, chairs and even baguettes.
