The iconic monsters aren’t scary at all in the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Dead by Daylight. Unfortunately, players have encountered error code 15 and are unable to play as a result. Wondering how to fix Dead by Daylight Error Code 15? If so, you’ve come to the right place – look for the solution in this guide.
How to fix Dead by Daylight Error Code 15?
Dead by Daylight Error Code 15 can be caused by a couple of different things. Your PC’s anti-virus software may be causing damage to the game or there may be a problem with the installation of EasyAntiCheat (EAC). EAC is the program used by Behavior Interactive developers to prevent hackers from ruining the game, although, ironically, it can cause big problems for legitimate players.

Dead by Daylight added Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head to its list of horror villains earlier this year. Fans were delighted to see the classic monster return, but also to see that he was packing “a fat ass” in the back.
