RETURN TO THE UPSIDE DOWN

August 19, 2021

Dress to kill (or survive) in whatever dimension you find yourself. 

 

Fans of Stranger Things can look forward to expanding their wardrobes as The DemogorgonNancy Wheeler, and Steve Harrington all get new outfits – including one that brings another fan-favorite character into Dead by Daylight Mobile. 

 

Nancy Wheeler – Days of Rose 

The “Days of Growth” Collection  

The rose cardigan peeked out from the corner of the closet, catching Nancy’s eye. She hadn’t worn it in ages, since well before her life in Hawkins was turned completely upside down. She reached for it, gently running her fingers along the subtle star-like pattern that adorned its front before pulling it on. Every so often, it was nice to remember the simpler times.  

 

Steve Harrington – High School Hunk  

The “Days of Growth” Collection  

So far as Steve could tell, the only constant in Hawkins over the past few years was change: deep and ominous. Steve had witnessed those changes first-hand, and in turn had emerged a different person himself. The Khakis, the long-sleeved polo, the perfect hair – he barely recognized his photo from the old yearbook. Well… the hair still looked pretty good. 

 

Steve Harrington – Jonathan Byers  

The “Moment of Truth” Collection  

Nancy and Jonathan were working together once more. This time, to expose the Hawkins Lab’s secret operations. But it became quickly apparent that there was another, equally difficult task ahead of them. If they were going to be partners again, they would first need to admit to each other why their relationship had fractured, and then decide together how to fix it.  

 

Jonathan Byers is a LEGENDARY and UNBREAKABLE outfit for Steve Harrington. It’s designed to create a singular look and cannot be separated into individual components.  

 

The Demogorgon – Twisted Demogoron  

The “Altered State” Collection  

As the dark Fog washed over the Demogorgon it became instantly aware of a change occurring within its anatomy. Its slick body, suddenly covered by a scale-like shell, felt near invincible as a new kind of hunger took hold of the monster’s senses. Altered, strengthened, by this new reality the beast hunted and fed like never before: now part Demogorgon, part… something else.  

 

The Demogorgon – Escaped Specimen  

The “Upside Down” Collection 

Three men lost their lives fitting the subject with its metals cuffs, collar, and chains. Their goal was to shackle it so further research could be conducted. The result was much more sinister. Possessing a strength and speed the research team couldn’t have anticipated, the monster made quick work of it bindings, freeing itself and leaving even more dead in its wake. It disappeared into the facility, enraged and ravenous.  

 

All outfits with the exception of Jonathan Byers, are VERY RARE and their pieces can be bought and equipped individually, allowing you to mix, match, and create your own looks. All outfits can be found under their characters’ customization menu in Dead by Daylight Mobile.
