Dead by Daylight – Ver. 6.5.0 (Mid-Chapter)

  • Release date: January 24th 2023 (North America, Europe) / January 25th 2023 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Content 

Event – Moonlight Burrow 

  • The “Moonlight Burrow” Lunar New Year event starts January 24, 11am ET. 

Archives

Features 
Quality Of Life  

Survivor Activity HUD 

  • The Survivor HUD now features an indicator that appears whenever they or their teammates engage in an activity. Activities include Repairing a Generator, being chased by the Killer, Healing, recovering from the Dying State, Cleansing or Blessing a Totem, opening an Exit Gate, or interacting with a Killer’s Power.

Merciless Killer  

  • Moving forward, getting 4 Kills will earn the Killer a Merciless Killer rating, rather than the previous requirement of a double pip.

The Queuing Experience  

  • Players are now able to browse the Store, The Archives and Daily Rituals, while queueing for a match. If they are mid-purchase when the lobby is ready, the game will wait for the conclusion of the transaction – though it will kick the player if the delay is too long.  
  • While queued, Killers can browse their other Killers and change their loadouts and customizations. This will not affect their currently queued character, who remains shown beside the “Looking for Match” message.  

Dev Note: Due to a potential disconnection during cinematics, we had to disable the viewing of cinematics when in a party or queueing for a match.

Wiggling  

Following a period in BETA, the updated Wiggle system is now standard for all players. Rather than mashing the left and right inputs to Wiggle, it now follows a ping-pong Skill Check system.   

Based on the feedback we’ve received from players – thank you very much – we have made a few adjustments to the system.  

  • Controller input handling has been improved, which should allow Killers to respond to Wiggling more efficiently while carrying Survivors.    
  • Survivors no longer shorten carry time by hitting Great Skill Checks. Instead, Great Skill Checks will increase resistance for the Killer. 
  • The size of the Great Skill Check zone has been slightly increased. We’ve also updated the Wiggling sound effects for improved feedback.  
Balance Changes  
The Knight   

Now that the Forged In Fog Chapter has been released for several weeks, we have updated several aspects of The Knight’s Base Kit:  

  • While using his Power, The Knight is now forced out of Guard Summon Mode after 10 seconds. 
  • While tracing a Patrol Path, The Knight’s Orb shrinks with distance travelled and disappears completely after 10m.  
  • When The Knight creates a Patrol Path longer than 10m, he will gain the Haste Status Effect. The Effect’s duration depends on the length of the Path, beginning at 2 seconds and increasing to 10 seconds at the maximum distance of 32m. The 10-second duration was 6 seconds on the PTB.
  • When a Guard detects a Survivor: If your Patrol Path is over 10m, the time it takes that Guard to reach the Survivor has been decreased. This reduction depends on the length of your Path, ranging from the default 10% to a maximum of 25% if your Path reaches 32m. Basically, the longer your Patrol Path, the faster your Guard will move once he detects a Survivor.   
  • Using a Guard to damage a Generator now grants an instant 5% loss of progress (previously 2.5%).   

Add-On Updates:  

  • Healing Poultice: When Survivors are within 24m of The Assassin when he spawns, their locations will be revealed for 5 seconds (up from 3).   
The Nurse  

The Nurse holds an interesting place in the Killer Roster. Though her Power can be challenging to master, she can be extremely deadly in practiced hands, especially with certain Perks that accentuate her mobility. While we don’t want to completely overhaul her, we have made some updates to The Nurse, including a pass on her Add-Ons.  

In addition, The Nurse is officially the latest Killer to receive her own theme in the menu, as well as a new Terror Radius and Chase Music.  

Base Kit:   

  • Any Attack made after Blinking is now a Blink Attack, not a Basic Attack. This will impact how The Nurse synergizes with certain Perks, including those that trigger the Exposed Status Effect.  

Add-On Updates:  

  • Catatonic Boy’s Treasure: Reduces extra fatigue from Chain Blinks by 65% (was 100).   
  • Dark Cincture: Increases movement speed after a Blink but before the following fatigue by 30%.  
  • Heavy Panting: Extends the duration of a Lunge by 30% after more than one Blink.  
  • Ataxic Respiration: Reduces base Blink fatigue duration by 7% (was 12%).  
  • Fragile Wheeze: Blink Attacks inflict the Mangled status effect.  
  • Campbell’s Last Breath: After reappearing from a fully charged Blink, The Nurse immediately Blinks again at full charge in the direction she is currently facing. This only works if The Nurse has a remaining Blink charge (was originally a half-charged Blink).  
  • “Bad Man’s” Last Breath: Hitting a Survivor with a successful Blink Attack grants the Undetectable status effect for 25 seconds (up from 16). This effect may be only triggered once every 45 seconds (down from 60).  
  • Kavanaugh’s Last Breath: When succumbing to fatigue, any Survivors within 8 meters of The Nurse are afflicted with the Blindness status effect for 60 seconds.  
  • Jenner’s Last Breath: Once The Nurse has exhausted all her Blinks, The Nurse can immediately Blink back to her original position by pressing the Active Ability Button. Must be triggered before The Nurse succumbs to fatigue. After returning to her original position, one Blink charge is restored (added restoration of 1 Blink charge; this is a change from the PTB where all charges were restored).  
  • Torn Bookmark: Adds 1 Blink charge. Increases Blink recharge time by 30% (was 50%).  
  • Matchbox: Sets maximum number of Blink charges to 1. Increases The Nurse’s base movement speed to 4.4 m/s (was 4.2 m/s, no longer allows other addons to increase Blink charges).

We’ve also adjusted the following:  

  • Improved feedback for the Spasmodic Breath Add-On. 
  • Updated Blink recharge audio to give a better indication of when Blink charges are full.
Eyrie of Crows Map 

Eyrie of Crows has received an additional balance pass to make the Map more fun to play for both Survivor and Killer. 

  • The Map’s length has been shortened.
  • Generators are more evenly distributed.
  • The main building has been moved toward the Map’s edge. 
  • The strength of certain main building loops has been decreased.
  • New tiles have been added.
  • Dead Zones have been reduced around the border.  
  • The Exit Gate no longer inadvertently spawns behind the main building.  
  • Certain rocks will no longer spawn close to Hooks, causing collision issues.  
  • An alternate Generator has been added to the main building.

Features
  • New Killer – The Knight
    • New Perk – Nowhere to Hide
      • Whenever you damage a generator, reveal the aura of all survivors standing within 24 meters of your position for 3/4/5 seconds.
    • New Perk – Hex: Face the Darkness
      • Injuring a Survivor by any means lights a Dull Totem, activating the Hex. While the Hex is active, all other Survivors outside of your Terror Radius will scream every 35/30/25 seconds, revealing their positions and auras for 2 seconds. When the Survivor enters the dying state or becomes healthy, the Hex totem becomes dull again and this perk deactivates. If the Hex totem is cleansed, this perk is permanently disabled.
    • New Perk – Hubris
      • Whenever you are stunned by a Survivor, that Survivor suffers from the Exposed status effect for 10/15/20 seconds. Hubris has a cooldown of 20 seconds.

This perk then deactivates. If you lose a health state while this perk has at least 1 tokens, the perk will lose all tokens and deactivate. Missing a skill check will also result in some charges lost.

  • Bloodpoint Categories maximum raised to 10,000 (was 8,000)

  • Teachable Perks have been removed from the Bloodweb
  • Level 51 in the Bloodweb requires the character to Prestige, costing 20,000 Bloodpoints
  • Characters can now each be prestiged up to 100 times
    • Prestige 1: The character’s perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 1
    • Prestige 2: The character’s perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 2

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 6.0.0 (Roots of Dread)

  • Release date: June 7th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features
  • New Killer – The Dredge
    • New Perk: Dissolution
      • 3 seconds after injuring a Survivor by any means, Dissolution activates for 12/16/20 second(s). While Dissolution is active, if a Survivor fast vaults over a pallet inside of your Terror Radius, the Entity will break the pallet at the end of the vault, and Dissolution deactivates.
    • New Perk: Darkness Revealed
      • When you open a locker, the auras of all Survivors within 8 meters of any lockers are revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds. This perk has a 30 second cooldown.
    • New Perk: Septic Touch
      • Whenever a Survivor performs the healing action within your Terror Radius, they suffer from Blindness and Exhaustion. These effects linger for 6/8/10 seconds after a healing action is interrupted by any means.
  • New Survivor – Haddie Kaur
    • New Perk: Inner Focus
      • You can see other Survivors’ Scratch Marks within a 32 meters range of you. Whenever another Survivor loses a health state within a 32 meters range of you, the Killer’s aura is revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds.
    • New Perk: Residual Manifest
      • After a successful Killer Blind action, the Killer is affected by the Blindness status effect for 20/25/30 seconds. This perk grants the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per Trial and will guarantee a basic Flashlight.
    • New Perk: Overzealous
      • After cleansing any totem, this perk activates. Your generator repair speed is increased by 4%/5%/6%. This Perk deactivates when you lose a health state by any means.
  • New General Killer Perk – Shattered Hope
    • When you destroy a Boon Totem this way, the auras of all Survivors inside the Boon Totem range are revealed to you for 6/7/8 seconds.
    • UI 
      • Layout change to the Main Menu – Allows more room to gaze longingly into the campfire.
      • Menu movement when using a Controller has been removed across all screens.
    • Presets – For Loadouts & Customizations
      • The ability to save your favorite Loadout builds and Customizations has been added to the Loadout and Customizations menus respectively.
    • The Ghost Face
      • Reworked Add-on – Driver’s License
        • When Marking a Survivor repairing a generator, the generator explodes and loses 20% progress. The affected generator becomes blocked for 15 seconds. When Marking multiple Survivors at the same time, the loss of progress only applies once.
    • The Pig
      • Added an extra Jigsaw Box to all matches
      • Survivors are guaranteed to find the key for their Reverse Beartrap at a maximum of 4 boxes searched (It can still be found sooner, but you will never need to search more than 4 boxes)
      • The box system has been adjusted to be more consistent overall and have a slightly higher average number of searches needed, from 2.5 to 3 (Yes, this is a buff)

    Dev Note: Some Pig players have been camping out in front of the final Jigsaw Box, blocking a survivor from being able to get rid of their Reverse Beartrap. With these changes, this strategy will no longer work! We also tweaked the way box searches are determined to prevent extreme cases of very few searches / too many searches, as well as a small buff to the average number of searches required to escape the Reverse Beartrap. Overall, this should make the boxes more consistent and slightly more powerful for The Pig.

    • Miscellaneous
      • Changed the text for Entity Displeased on the tally screen. It now reads “The Entity Hungers…”
      • Added a warning message in the Custom Games Lobby to indicate that matches do not count toward Achievements.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.7.0 (Mid-Chapter)

  • Release date: April 27th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features 

UI Update – Added an indicator to the Searching for Friends popup when loading data. 

 
Content 

Visual Update for Haddonfield Map. 

General 

  • Difficulty ratings for Survivors have been removed 
  • Difficulty ratings for Killers are now Easy, Moderate, Hard, or Very Hard 
  • Easy: These Killers are the easiest for a first-time player 
  • Moderate: Require the player to be comfortable with the basics of the role, though the Killers share common mechanics with those from the Easy category 
  • Hard: Use mechanics that are specific to the Killer and require more practice to be effective 
  • Very Hard: Require a high amount of practice and understanding, inexperienced players would likely find little success when using them 
  • Switch players should update to 14.1.0-1.0 firmware or newer to fix an issue with Auric Cell Purchases failing. 

Dev Note: Since all Survivors have the same mechanics, they are no longer separated into different difficulty tiers. Killer difficulty is based on overall mechanical and strategic complexity, specifically for newer players. 

Hemorrhage Rework 

  • New Effect: Survivors affected by the Hemorrhage Status Effect have their healing progression regress at a steady rate when not being healed 
  • Healing regresses at a rate of 7% per second (this means a 99% full heal would take 14 seconds to completely empty) 
  • Sloppy Butcher and The Nightmare’s “Z” Block Add-on have been modified to take the new effect into account (changes listed below) 

Dev Note: Hemorrhage has had a reputation of being a “useless” status effect, so we reworked it to have a more meaningful impact on the core mechanic of survivor healing. 

 

Perks 

  • Boil Over 
  • Increases struggling effects by 60/70/80% (was 50/75/100%) 

Dev Note: Boil Over’s wiggle impact was causing some players to have significant issues navigating certain maps, beyond the intended impact of the perk. We are planning to look at wiggle impact more generally in a future patch, but for now we are toning down the impact from Boil Over to prevent particularly egregious cases. 

  • Boon: Circle of Healing 
  • Increases healing speed bonus by 40/45/50% (was 65/70/75%) 

Dev Note: As it was foretold, so it has been delivered. 

  • Sloppy Butcher 
  • Modified to account for the Hemorrhage Rework 
  • Increases the rate at which healing progression is lost by 15/20/25% 

Dev Note: On the PTB, all mentions of Sloppy Butcher increasing bleed frequency were removed, but the mechanic remained! The strings have been updated to clarify that increase bleed frequency is still present on Sloppy Butcher, in addition to the new effect. 

The Nightmare 

  • Add-on – “Z” Block 
  • Modified to account for the Hemorrhage Rework 
  • Survivors interacting with a Dream Trap suffer from the Hemorrhage Status Effect for 90 seconds (was 60 seconds) 

The Legion 

  • The Legion now has unique Terror Radius and Chase music, which can be modified by the Mix Tape add-ons 
  • New: Each successful hit with Feral Slash now increases The Legion’s movement speed by +0.2m/s for the remainder of Feral Frenzy 
  • New: After 4 successful hits with Feral Slash, the next Feral Slash will put the survivor into the dying state and end Feral Frenzy 
  • Removed the loss of power gauge on successful basic attacks 
  • When Feral Frenzy ends, the power gauge now starts charging immediately (Previously waited for the fatigue sequence to end) 
  • Fatigue after Feral Frenzy lasts for 3 seconds (was 4 seconds) 
  • Add-on – Mischief List 
  • Increases the Duration of Feral Frenzy by 2 seconds (was 1 second) 
  • Add-on – Scratched Ruler 
  • Decreases Feral Frenzy recharge time by 5 seconds (was 2 seconds)

  • Reworked Add-on – Never-sleep Pills 
  • The Legion’s base move speed during Feral Frenzy is 4.6/ms

  • Note: Regression effect does stack with Hex: Ruin or other regression effects 
  • New Add-on – Stylish Sunglasses 
  • Shows the auras of Survivors who are mending within a 24 meter radius 
  • New Add-on – BFFs 
  • Earn tokens for hitting Survivors during Feral Frenzy 
  • Second chained hit: 2 token 
  • Third chained hit: 3 tokens 
  • Fourth chained hit: 4 tokens 
  • Fifth chained hit: 5 tokens 
  • Once the gates are powered, if 15 or more tokens have been collected, gain a 4% movement speed boost when not using Feral Frenzy 
  • Removed Add-ons: Nasty Blade, Cold Dirt 

Dev Note: This update for Legion leans into their signature – Running really fast with a knife! The stacking movement speed from Feral Strike gives a better reward from each hit, and they now have a way to down survivors at the end of a great chain. Add-ons have also seen a major overhaul to provide more variety of playstyles.

  • Made it possible to reveal Ghost Face / stalk Survivors when they are not in the center of the screen but still take up a large amount of the screen (eg when they are very close to you)

  • The auras of all Survivors are revealed for 7 seconds when a Marked Survivor is put into the dying state (was 4 seconds)

  • Reworked Add-on – Cinch Straps

  • Reworked Add-on – “Ghost Face caught on Tape” 
  • Instantly recharges Night Shroud after a successful basic attack puts a Survivor into the dying state 

Dev Note: Ghost Face was having a tough time generally, and his add-ons were particularly uninteresting overall. This change boosts the effectiveness of the Marked effect, and also overhauls his Add-on loadout for more interesting and powerful combinations. The reveal and stalking mechanics have also been tuned to be more predictable and intuitive. 

Changes from PTB 

  • The Nightmare’s “Z” Block Add-on has had the bleed frequency modifier returned 
  • Hemorrhage no longer reduces healing progress when downed

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.5.2

  • Release date: February 9th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Content
  • Boil Over
    • Changed to give 33% of current wiggle progress when falling from great heights (was a flat 25% increase)

Dev Note: This change prevents abuse of Boil Over in specific map locations where the killer has no choice but to drop from a height. It still stays relevant for longer walks and especially for basement access. At over 75% wiggle progress, it still results in an insta-drop.

  • Changed “Rite of The Executioner” Daily Ritual to require sending 2 Survivors to Cages of Atonement (was 4)

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.5.0 (Mid-Chapter)

  • Release date: January 25th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features
  • Fixed some specific vulnerabilities that could be abused by cheaters
  • Hit feedback has been adjusted to reduce the frequency of visual feedback in the case of a rejected hit (especially for instances of Dead Hard)

Dev Note: This won’t eliminate all instances of VFX / SFX feedback when landing a rejected hit, but it should reduce it for most cases where the players have a decent connection to the server.

  • New Feature: Interaction Behavior – Hold / Toggle
  • When set to Toggle, you no longer need to hold the interaction button for interaction (Fixing generators, healing, kicking generators, etc.)
  • To end the interaction, you will need to press the interaction button a second time (or use the “Run to Cancel” option detailed below!)
  • Located in the Options menu under “Controls”
  • Available for both Survivor and Killer as separate settings
  • New Feature: Run to Cancel – On / Off
  • When enabled, survivor players can cancel an interaction by giving a run input (ie the run modifier and a direction to move)
  • Located in the Options menu under “Controls”
  • Only available for Survivors

Dev Note: Holding buttons for extended interactions isn’t always the most comfortable, so this feature aims to address that. When combined with the Run to Cancel, you can quickly disengage from fixing a generator once you spot Myers stalking you.

A new tab is available in the Options menu: Beta!

  • New features will appear here so that we can gain feedback from all players on all platforms

The Oni

  • Add-on – Iridescent Family Crest
  • Increased scream radius on missed attacks to 24 meters (was 12 meters)

Dev Notes: Almost all of these add-on changes are “numbers only” tweaks, where we’ve adjusted numerical values and nothing else. The nerfed add-ons were all over-performing and influencing kill rates vs. their baseline kill rates more than we’d like, so they’ve been adjusted downwards slightly. Likewise, the buffed add-ons were all under-performing, so we hope to make them more appealing with larger effects.

Dev Notes: We will continue to monitor the performance of Circle of Healing, and may adjust it again in the near future.

 

Killer Perks

  • Gearhead – Reworked
  • New Description: After a Survivor loses a health state, Gearhead activates. While Gearhead is active, the next time a Survivor completes a Great Skill Check while repairing, their Aura is revealed to you for 6/8/10 seconds. Gearhead then deactivates.
  • Remember Me

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.3.2

  • Release date: November 2nd 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features

Boon Totems

  • Disabled an animation restriction that caused many boon totems to be unsnuffable by the killer due to the placement of the totems

Dev Note: We intend to re-enable this in a future patch, once we have had time to locate and reposition all offending totems so that they play nice. This will result in some totems being snuffable through collision, but we are erring on the side of caution to ensure that all totems can be snuffed by the killer until then. Enjoy it while it lasts, Killer Mains!

 
Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that caused the purchased survivor to be unlocked and no Auric Cells to be spent after getting a “Purchase Failed” error in the store.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Survivors using the Clairvoyance perk to be able to push other players.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the interaction bar not to become red when blessing a hex totem.
  • Fixed an issue that may cause reverse bear traps installed by the Pig’s Video Tape add-on not to kill survivors when the timer runs out.
  • Fixed an issue that may cause survivors to be unable to move when a generator is completed when the Pig has the Video Tape add-on equipped.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.3.1

  • Release date: October 26th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Content
  • Perk – Clairvoyance: Added the Hatch to the auras revealed. The Hatch aura is only visible after The Hatch has spawned.
  • Perk – Dead Hard: Added hit validation
  • The Midnight Grove Event – Selecting a Halloween challenge involving the event pumpkins will cause pumpkins to react to your presence.

Dev note: Previously, Dead Hard’s invulnerability was calculated on the Killer’s client, which led to survivors needing to anticipate the killer’s swing to an unreasonable degree in order for it to work. With hit validation, the server will decide if the hit would have landed and reject it if Dead Hard was active without relying on the Killer’s client.

Bug Fixes
  • (Steam, Windows Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X) Tentatively fixed an issue which could cause players to get stuck in an infinite loading screen
  • Fixed an issue that caused Halloween pumpkins not to rotate to face the player.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Halloween pumpkins not to appear lit when a related challenge is active.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Halloween hooks’ auras not to be orange when viewed by survivors.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the haste timer not to function properly when having haste both from the Halloween pumpkins and from the Clown’s Afterpiece Antidote.
  • Fixed an issue that may cause the game to crash when using the Boon: Circle of Healing perk.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Boon: Circle of Healing perk to give the Self Care prompt.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the heal speed not to be adjusted when a medkit runs of charges when self healing with a medkit within the range of Boon: Circle of Healing.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Clairvoyance perk to remain activated when used while being healed and holding an item.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Spirit to be able to teleport to a destroyed husk when using the Wakizashi Saya add-on.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Life Giver archive challenge not to gain progress when gaining health from the Adrenaline, For the People, Resurgence, Second Wind, or Solidarity perks.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Appeal to Heal archive challenge not to gain progress when consuming a medkit by using the Styptic Agent or Anti-Hemorrhagic Syringe add-ons.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Power Struggle perk not to reliably stun the killer since the same side pallet stuns were removed.
  • Fixed an issue in the cosmetic icons where Jonathan Byers’ head would appear distorted in his outfit and torso icons.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Cenobite to appear inside of the ground when teleporting to a survivor solving the Lament Configuration on the top level of the maze in the Pale Rose map.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Victor’s alert range not to be affected by other add-ons affecting Victor’s Shriek radius.
  • Fixed an issue that caused survivors to be able to use the Dead Hard and Balanced Landing perks at the same time.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the 5th Killer Instinct VFX “tick” to not appear if a Survivor affected by Killer Instinct is behind an asset.
  • Fixed an issue with various totem locations which caused the Killer to be unable to snuff them.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.3.0 (Hour of the Witch)

  • Release date: October 19th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features
  • System to support event content within The Archives
Content
  • Added a new Survivor: Mikaela Reid.
  • Updated the Character Select portraits for several Survivors. (David, Jake, Nea, Kate, Quentin, and Feng)
  • “The Midnight Grove” Halloween limited-time event (starts Oct. 21st 11AM ET)
  • Tome IX of The Archives (starts Oct. 20th 11AM ET)
 
General
  • Item and Add-on descriptions have been rewritten
  • “Considerably” and other vague terms have been replaced with number values
  • Added in reminder text for Status Effects: Any Add-ons that trigger status effect also include a brief description on the status effect
  • The hatch will now only appear when one survivor is left alive
  • Survivors can open the hatch after it has been kicked shut by using a key
  • Key interaction takes 2.5 seconds, and does not lose progress when interrupted
  • The achievement “Where Did They Go!?” has been changed to “The Key to Escaping”

Developer notes: The hatch change is effectively the much asked for Key nerf in disguise, preventing survivors from escaping a trial prematurely. It is also intended to reduce situations where survivors would camp the hatch, waiting for their teammates to die so they could escape.

 
The Trapper
  • Base trap carrying capacity and starting traps increased to 2 (was 1)
  • Trap aura color changed from red to white to be consistent with other killer object auras
  • The number of traps spawned on a given map is now always 6 (was random 4-6)
  • Add-on – Trapper Gloves: Setting speed bonus increased to 30% (was 20%)
  • Add-on – Wax Brick: Trap escape modifier removed. Added effect: 33% increase to rescue and escape time. Rarity decreased to Uncommon (was Rare)
  • Add-on – Trapper Bag: Reduced number of additional traps to 1 (was 2). Rarity increased to Rare (was Uncommon)
  • Add-on – Secondary Coil: Increased trap disarm time to 50% (was 43%)
  • Add-on – Fastening Tools: Trap escape modifier removed. Added effect: 25% increase to rescue and escape time. Rarity decreased to Rare (was Very Rare)
  • Reworked Add-on – Oily Coil: When resetting a Bear Trap, reveal the aura of the most recent Survivor to disarm it for 5 seconds
  • Reworked Add-on – Trapper Sack: Bear Traps are carried at the beginning of the trial instead of spawning on the map. Bear Traps cannot be picked up
  • New Add-on – Bear Oil: Setting a Bear Trap is silent
  • New Add-on – Makeshift Wrap: The Trapper cannot be caught by his Bear Traps. The Bear Trap will be disarmed if The Trapper steps on it
  • New Add-on – Coffee Grinds: Gain a 5% Haste status effect for 5 seconds after setting a Bear Trap
  • New Add-on – Lengthened Jaws: Bear Traps inflict Deep Wound on Survivors
  • New Add-on – Tension Spring: The Bear Trap resets 2 seconds after a Survivor escapes from it
  • The following add-ons have been removed: Strong Coil Spring, Trap Setters, Logwood Dye, Setting Tools, Stitched Bag
  • New Bear Trap SFX when using Padded Jaws add-on

Developer notes: The Trapper is DbD’s oldest killer, and he needed some love to bring him up to our modern standard of play. Many of these changes are focused around bringing him into line with how the rest of our Killers behave. Traps have been balanced to provide more consistent game experiences, and his add-ons have been overhauled to give a greater variety of options.

 
The Wraith
  • Uncloaking speed boost duration reduced to 1 seconds (was 1.25 seconds)
  • Add-on – All Seeing: Blood: Aura reveal range decreased to 8 meters (was 12 meters)

Developer notes: Recent buffs to The Wraith have made him a wee bit over powered, so these changes are intended to adjust two of the most obviously overpowered elements. We’ll continue monitoring how he performs, and potentially have more changes for him in the future.

 
The Hillbilly
  • Add-on – Death Engravings: Added effect: Decreases heat generated while charging by 14%
  • Add-on – Doom Engravings: Added effect: Decreases heat generated while charging by 14%
  • Add-on – Mother’s Helpers: Charge speed bonus after being stunned increased to 18% (was 12%)
  • Add-on – Tuned Carburetor: Charge speed bonus increased to 25% (was 20%)
  • Reworked Add-on – Black Grease: Increases Chainsaw charge speed by 18% for 30 seconds after being blinded
  • Reworked Add-on – Pighouse Gloves: While overheated, increases action speed by 20% when breaking pallets or walls, or damaging generators. While overheated, decreases duration of pallet stuns by 50%

Developer notes: The engraving add-ons are very popular with players, but the increased charge time means he generates significantly more heat for a full charge with these add-ons than without. A heat reduction modifier has been added to keep the amount of heat produced for one full charge constant, and we’ve also improved some underperforming add-ons to make them more enticing.

 
The Nurse
  • Add-on – Torn Bookmark: Removed line of sight restriction. Added effect: Increases Blink recharge time by 50%

Developer notes: The line of sight restriction on Torn Book wasn’t terribly fun to play with, so we’ve replaced that a new downside which we feel is more in line with what players would expect.

 
The Shape
  • Add-on – Memorial Flower: Rarity decreased to Common (was Uncommon)
  • Add-on – Vanity Mirror: Removed speed penalty
  • Add-on – Judith’s Tombstone: Speed penalty now only applies to Evil Within III

Developer notes: The rarity change to Memorial Flower brings The Shape in line with all our other killers in terms of add-on rarity distribution. Additionally, we have removed the movement speed penalties that prevented two add-ons from realistically enabling their intended play styles. Our condolences to players who used these add-ons for comedic purposes.

 
The Hag
  • Add-on – Waterlogged Shoe: Increased speed bonus to 4.5% (was 2%)

Developer notes: Waterlogged Show was The Hag’s worst performing add-on, so we’ve given it a buff to help make it more viable. It will now make The Hag move at regular killer speed, 4.6m/s.

 
The Pig
  • Add-on – Bag of Gears: Increased Reverse Bear Trap setting speed bonus to 50% (was 20%)
  • Add-on – Crate of Gears: Decreased Jigsaw Box search penalty to 33% (was 43%)
  • Add-on – Tampered Timer: Decreased Reverse Bear Trap death timer modification to 20 seconds (was 30 seconds)
  • Add-on – Rule Set N.2: Decreased rarity to Rare (was Ultra Rare)
  • Add-on – Amanda’s Letter: Jigsaw Box reduction removed. Aura reveal range increased to 16 meters (was 12 meters)
  • Reworked Add-on – John’s Medical File: Increases crouched move speed by 6%
  • Reworked Add-on – Razor Wires: Failing a Jigsaw Box skill check while uninjured will injure the survivor
  • Reworked Add-on – Workshop Grease: Increases Ambush attack charge speed by 50%. Decreases Ambush attack miss cooldown by 25%. Increased rarity to Uncommon (was Common)
  • Reworked Add-on – Last Will: Increases Ambush attack movement speed by 6%. Increases time to charge Ambush attack by 66%
  • Reworked Add-on – Interlocking Razor: Failing a Jigsaw Box skill check while injured will inflict Deep Wound on the Survivor
  • Reworked Add-on – Jigsaw’s Annotated Plan: Increases available Reverse Bear Traps by 1. Increases Reverse Bear Trap death timer by 10 seconds. Whenever a generator is completed, 10 seconds is removed from the death timer of all active Reverse Bear Traps
  • Reworked Add-on – Jigsaw’s Sketch: Increases available Reverse Bear Traps by 1. When a Survivor with a Reverse Bear Trap is working on a generator, that generator’s aura is revealed to you
  • Reworked Add-on – Video Tape: Survivors begin the trial with Reverse Bear Traps installed. Rarity increased to Ultra Rare (was Uncommon)

Developer notes: We are happy to announce The Pig is getting an add-on balance pass! We have replaced a number of underperforming or unpopular add-ons with new effects and increased the values on others to make them more effective. On the other end, Tampered Timer and Crate of Gears could sometimes be too strong (especially when combined) so their values have been reduced. The end result should be an add-on set that is overall stronger, more diverse, and more fun to play.

 
The Spirit
  • While phase walking Survivors within 24 meters of The Spirit (not the husk) hear a directional audio cue that gains volume with proximity
  • Add-on – Juniper Bonsai: Added effect: Increases Passive Phasing duration by 50%
  • Reworked Add-on – Dried Cherry Blossom: Survivors trigger Killer Instinct when they come within 4 meters of The Spirit while she is phasing. Scratch marks are no longer visible while using Yamaoka’s Haunting
  • Reworked Add-on – Wakizashi Saya: During Yamaoka’s Haunting, use the Active Ability button to return to the husk and end the haunting
  • New Add-on – Mother’s Glasses: Survivors trigger Killer Instinct when they come within 2 meters of the husk. Scratch marks are no longer visible while using Yamaoka’s Haunting
  • New Add-on – Uchiwa: Instantly recharges Yamoka’s Haunting when stunned by a pallet
  • New Add-on – Senko Hanabi: When Yamaoka’s Haunting ends, The Spirit’s husk explodes and any vaults within 4 meters are blocked for 5 seconds
  • New Add-on – Furin: The phasing sound is heard by all Survivors
  • New Add-on – Kintsugi Teacup: Instantly recharges Yamaoka’s Haunting after breaking a pallet or wall
  • The following add-ons have been removed: Bloody Hair Brooch, Dirty Uwabaki, Katsumori Talisman, Prayer Beads Bracelet, Father’s Glasses
  • New Terror Radius music

Developer notes: The Spirit’s phase walking mind-games have evolved into something of a Kobayashi Maru. By adding some audio cues, it should give sharp survivors a chance to figure out what she’s doing and react accordingly. Along with this, we’ve replaced some of her more problematic / boring add-ons with new ones that should provide more varied options for potential playstyles.

 
The Plague
  • If the power button is released early, Vile Purge will continue charging to the minimum threshold instead of cancelling and entering cooldown
  • Vile Purge cooldown move speed increased from 2.3m/s to 3.6m/s
  • Base object infection time increased to 40 seconds (was 35 seconds)
  • Interacting with infected objects generates 2x more sickness over time than interacting with non-infected objects
  • Time to cleanse at a fountain increased to 8 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Limestone Seal: Object infection bonus increased to 20 seconds (was 5 seconds)
  • Add-on – Emetic Potion: Increased Vile Purge effectiveness bonus to 30% (was 25%)
  • Add-on – Hematite Seal: Object infection bonus increased to 30 seconds (was 10 seconds)
  • Add-on – Infected Emetic: Decreased Vile Purge effectiveness bonus to 40% (was 50%)
  • Add-on – Ashen Apple: Removed object infection duration modifier. Added effect: Increases the number of Pools of Devotion in the trial by 1
  • Add-on – Rubbing Oil: Reduced Vile Purge charge speed bonus to 50% (was 100%)
  • Add-on – Exorcism Amulet: Increased Corrupt Purge duration bonus to 10 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Devotees Amulet: Increased Corrupt Purge duration bonus to 20 seconds (was 8 seconds)
  • Add-on – Black Incense: Decreased survivor aura reveal duration to 3 seconds (was 5 seconds)
  • Add-on – Iridescent Seal: Removed speed penalty while holding Corrupt Purge
  • Reworked Add-on – Prayer Tablet Fragment: Vile Purge no longer affects Survivors. Increases object infection duration by 40 seconds. Increases infection from infected objects by 100%. Increases Devious Bloodpoints by 100%
  • Reworked Add-on – Olibanum Incense: Survivors who cleanse at fountains have their auras revealed for 4 seconds
  • Reworked Add-on – Prophylactic Amulet: Decreases the number of Pools of Devotion in the trial by 2
  • Reworked Add-on – Incensed Ointment: Ingesting the corruption at a Pool of Devotion causes all Survivors within The Plague’s Terror Radius to scream and reveal their locations
  • Reworked Add-on – Vile Emetic: Increases velocity of vomit projectiles by 10%

Developer notes: These changes are intended to be a general buff and to enhance quality-of-life for The Plague. It was far too common for players to attempt a quick purge only to accidentally release the charge a fraction of a second too early and unintentionally end up in cooldown, so we’ve changed the behaviour of early releases to charge to a minimum threshold instead of going on cooldown. We have also buffed the options for focusing on infecting objects during the trial, with infected objects now increasing infection faster than non-infected ones.

 
The Deathslinger
  • The Deathslinger must now wait for the Enter Aim animation to complete before being able to fire (0.4 seconds)
  • The Deathslinger must now wait for the Exit Aim animation to complete before being able to attack (0.6 seconds)
  • Increased movement speed when aiming down sights to 85% (was 75%)
  • The cooldown when a survivor breaks free is now the same duration as a successful hit cooldown
  • Increased terror radius to 32 meters (was 24 meters)
  • Add-on – Gold Creek Whiskey: Removed movement speed penalty
  • Add-on – Marshal’s Badge: Removed movement speed penalty
  • Add-on – Iridescent Coin: Decreased range requirement to 12 meters (was 15 meters)
  • Add-on – Wanted Poster: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 2.5% (was 10%)
  • Add-on – Jaw Smasher: Decreased movement speed while aiming to 1% (was 5%)
  • Reworked Add-on – Hellshire Iron: When a Survivor is speared, gain Undetectable. The effect persists for 10 seconds after the Survivor is no longer speared.

Developer notes: We were unhappy with how easy it was for players to “insta-scope” survivors, especially given how little counterplay this had for survivor players. To combat this, The Deathslinger now has minimum enter / exit times when aiming down sights before being able to shoot / attack normally. We have also adjusted the stun when survivors break free to be the same as a successful hit, giving players a choice to break the reel early in exchange for losing out on the damage / deep wound. Wanted Poster and Jaw Smasher are to account for his new base movement speed while aiming: When stacked The Deathslinger moves at ~3.9m/s, which is very close to Survivor move speed of 4.0 m/s.

 
The Ghost Face
  • Night Shroud recovery time decreased to 24 seconds (was 30 seconds)
  • Add-on – Walleye’s Matchbook: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 2 seconds (was 4 seconds)
  • Add-on – Olson’s Address Book: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 3 seconds (was 6 seconds)
  • Add-on – Chewed Pen: Decreased Night Shroud recovery modifier to 4 seconds (was 8 seconds)

Developer notes: Player feedback about Ghost Face’s add-ons was very clear: decreased recovery time was more appealing than any other option. In light of this, we have ‘baked in’ roughly half the effect of these add-ons to encourage a wider variety of selection.

 
The Blight
  • Add-on – Adrenaline Vial: Increased rush token recharge bonus to 1 second (was 0.75 seconds). Added effect: Increases Rushing speed by 10%
  • Add-on – Summoning Stone: Increased pallet blocking range to 16 meters (was 12 meters). Increased pallet blocking duration to 15 seconds (was 6 seconds)

Developer notes: The add-on Adrenaline Vial is supposed to enable an alternate “straight line dash” playstyle for players interested in novelty. While it’s still unlikely to be stronger than baseline Blight play, increased movement speed and token recharge should make the alternate playstyle a bit more viable. Additionally, the values on Summoning Stone have been increased to better reflect the perk it is referencing (Hex: Blood Favor).

 
The Oni
  • Add-on – Scalped Topknot: Reduced Demon Dash activation reduction to 0.5 seconds (was 1 second)

Developer notes: Easy one here, Scalped Topknot was over performing when used, so it needed an adjustment to bring it in line.

 
The Trickster
  • Add-on – Ji-Woon’s Autograph: Decreased the reduction of blades required to 1 (was 2)

Developer notes: There was an error that caused Ji-Woon’s Autograph and Fizz-Spin Soda to bother reduce the blades required by 2, so we’ve reduced the power of the more common add-on.

The following perks have become General Perks, and their names have changed:

  • Babysitter is now Guardian
  • Camaraderie is now Kinship
  • Second Wind is now Renewal
  • Better Together is now Situational Awareness

  • Repressed Alliance: Generator repair requirement reduced to 55/50/45 seconds (was 80/70/60 seconds)
  • Built to Last – Reworked: After hiding inside a Locker for 14/13/12 seconds with a depleted item in hand, 99% of its charges are refilled. Each use of Built to Last reduces the amount of charges refilled by 33%. Added stinger audio when item charges are refilled
  • Any Means Necessary: Added effect: You can see the auras of dropped pallets
  • No Mither: Grunts of pain reduction increased to 25/50/75% (was 0/25/50%). Added effect: Your recovery speed is increased by 15/20/25%

Developer notes: All of these perks have a low usage rate, low success rate, or both. They have all seen buffs to make them more appealing and more effective.

 
Killer Perks

The following perks have become General Perks, and their names have changed:

  • Surge is now Jolt
  • Mindbreaker is now Fearmonger
  • Cruel Limits is now Claustrophobia

Perk Balancing

  • Hex: Retribution: Oblivious condition changed to trigger from interacting with any type of totem (was just cleansing hex totems): Increased aura reveal time to 15 seconds (was 10 seconds)
  • Hex: Blood Favor: Pallet blocking effect now triggers off survivors losing a health state (was basic attacks). Pallet blocking radius increased to 32 meters (was 16 meters). Pallet blocking is now centered around the survivor losing health. Cooldown has been removed
  • Hex: The Third Seal: Blindness effect now triggers off basic attacks and special attacks (was just basic attacks)
  • Hex: Thrill of the Hunt: Survivor penalty now applies to both Cleansing and Blessing actions (was just Cleansing). Penalty stacks increased to 8/9/10% per stack (was 4/5/6%). Maximum penalty increased to 40/45/50% (was 30%). Loud noise notification has been removed
  • Fearmonger (formerly Mindbreaker): Now applies Exhausted and Blindness to survivors (was just Exhausted)

Developer notes: Hex: Retribution and Hex: Thrill of the Hunt have been adjusted to take the new Boon Totem perks into account. The other perks have been generally unpopular, so some buffs are warranted to increase viability.

  • Updated a variety of survivors hair and facial hair cosmetics.

Dev note: The Nemesis came out in a good state, but has been underperforming slightly in higher skill brackets. These players tend to hit Mutation Rate 3 more often, so a buff here should give him a slight boost at that level of play. Additionally, we have buffed two addons that were underperforming to make them more viable, and made the associated ritual less of a pain to complete.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.1.1

  • Release date: August 10th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Content

The Trickster:

  • Increased time before Laceration decay to 15s (was 10s)
  • Increased maximum throw speed bonus to 30% (was 25%)

The Trickster’s performance is still lower than we want him after the 5.1.0 release, so we decided to add a bit of power in a few places. Chase dynamics are more interesting now that he has a short delay before Laceration decays but it was a bit too easy for him to lose partial progress toward damaging a Survivor, meriting an increase to the delay.

The Trickster Gameplay Update

Power:

  • Maximum Laceration is now 6 (was 8).
  • Faster Laceration decay (full meter depletes in 15 seconds, 20 seconds if running)
  • Shorter delay before Laceration starts to decay (now 10 seconds, was 20 seconds)
  • Laceration removed upon successful basic attack now 3 (was 4)
  • Main Event starts throwing knives 1 second sooner
  • 30 knife hits required to activate Main Event (was 20)
  • 30 second window to activate Main Event (was 10)
  • New knife hit indicators have been added to show when knives connect with Survivors. 

Addons:

  • Melodious Murder: Moderately decreases knives’ reload time at lockers.
  • Fizz-Spin Soda: Smaller effect (starts at 2 knives thrown instead of 3; balanced with smaller maximum Laceration)
  • Iridescent Photocard: When a Survivor’s Laceration Meter is two or less Blade hits away from the maximum, they are inflicted with the Exposed status effect.
  • Death Throes Compilation: When Main Event ends, The Trickster’s knives are replenished.
  • Lucky Blade: Hitting a survivor with a Blade during Main Event slightly extends its duration. (0.2s)
  • Waiting for You Watch: Hitting a survivor with a Blade during Main Event moderately extends its duration. (0.3s)

Changes from PTB to Live:

  • Now starts with 44 knives (was 60)
  • Maximum knife rate of fire bonus after throwing 8 knives is 25% (was 33%)
  • Trick Pouch: Adds 4 knives to inventory (was 10)
  • Bloody Boa: Adds 8 knives to inventory (was 15)
  • Knife hit indicators reduced in size.

Perks:

  • No Way Out: After hooking a Survivor for the first time, No Way Out gains a token. Once the exit gates have been poweredNo Way Out activates.
  • When a Survivor interacts with an exit gate switch, you receive a loud noise notification. The Entity then blocks both exit gate switches for 12 seconds, plus an additional 6/9/12 seconds for each token in your possession.
  • Hex: Crowd Control: Effect now lasts 14/17/20 seconds (was 10/12/14 seconds)
 
Technical Updates
  • The unhooking interaction now has higher priority than the Self-Care interaction. If injured, the prompt for unhooking will no longer be replaced with a prompt to self heal.
  • When a Killer attempts to grab a Survivor, but the request is refused by the server (usually because the Survivor has stopped performing the interaction) the Killer will now automatically transition into an attack instead. In addition, achievement and challenge progress will be granted at the beginning of the grab attempt, regardless of whether or not the attempt is successful.
  • Stun validation has been added to the hit validator. If a Killer has a pending stun on the server, the server will reject the hit. This will be most noticeably in situations such as a Killer who is attacking at the same time a survivor is throwing a pallet, and it should reduce instances where survivors appear to take damage after stunning a Killer.
  • Effects that improve a Killer’s hearing, such as the perk “Stridor” or the add-on “Swing Chains,” will only be heard from the Killer’s perspective. Survivors will no longer hear themselves as louder when the Killer is running such effects.
  • Effects that modify sound are now multiplicative rather than additive. This means that sounds that are reduced to 0%, such as injured noises by the perk “Iron Will,” will no longer be increased by perks such as “Stridor” and will instead remain at 0.
 

Tutorial Updates

  • Added new tutorials for both Survivor and Killer.
  • Menus now have tooltips. This can be turned off in the settings.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 5.0.2

  • Release date: June 29th 2021 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Performance Issues 

This update contains a few changes that should improve performance for many players. That said, some performance issues still remain. The team is still actively working on more fixes across multiple platforms, including consoles. We will be monitoring the changes made within this bugfix patch for stability.  

We’re hoping this update will also help performance on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but we want to ensure it is stable enough to be reinstated for live games. We will be monitoring how the map is doing in custom games with these new changes and provide you all with an update soon. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on further improvements to the game’s performance!  

 
Switch Performance

We have reduced the overall visual quality on Switch to help improve performance. The game may still crash when played on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but less frequently. Rest assured, we are still working on ensuring that the new map does not crash on this platform.

The Huntress Addon Update

Addons

  • Iridescent Head: Prevents carrying more than one Hatchet.
 

More Live Design

Apart from the killer updates, the most significant live design change in this update is the change to Survivor’s hook struggle inputs. One of the motivating factors behind this update is to reduce the number of inputs per second in order to make the game more accessible to those suffering from RSI. After the release of this mechanic for The Executioner’s Cages and its positive reception by the community, we felt confident of making this change more broadly for all Sacrifice struggles.

The new Object of Obsession design previewed on the dev stream has been completed with a few tweaks. We hope solo Survivors will enjoy Small Game’s new Totem-counting function, and Borrowed Time no longer triggers based on Terror Radius… it just works.

New hook struggle

  • Struggling during the second stage on a hook is now a series of Skill Checks
  • Failing to give any input for two successive Skill Checks will instantly complete the Sacrifice
  • Missing a skill check will reduce the amount of time until the Entity claims the hooked Survivor

Perks

  • Small Game: Gain tokens for each Totem any Survivor cleanses; tokens reduce cone width to increase accuracy; no longer triggers for the Totem you are currently cleansing.
  • Lucky Break: Now hides scratch marks as well; duration reduced to 35/40/45 seconds.
  • Soul Guard: Now has a 30 second cooldown between activations.
  • Open-Handed: Increases aura reading range by 8/12/16 meters; Survivors may only be affected by one instance of Open-Handed.
  • Zanshin Tactics: Now always active and range increased to 24/28/32 meters.
  • Borrowed Time: No longer requires being in the Terror Radius to trigger; duration of Enduring status reduced to 8/10/12 seconds.
  • Object of Obsession: This perk has been redesigned.
  • Whenever your aura is revealed to the Killer, the Killer’s aura becomes visible to you and you gain a 2/4/6% bonus to healing, repairing and cleansing speed.
  • If you are the Obsession, your aura is revealed to the killer for 3 seconds once every 30 seconds.
  • Increases your chances of being the Obsession.

Other

  • Repairing while using a toolbox now increases the odds of getting Skill Checks by 5x (was 2x).
  • When the Hatch is opened by a Key, it remains open for 10 seconds (was 30 seconds).
  • Every trial will now start with an obsession, regardless of player loadouts.

Archives

  • A new Tome and Rift will be added to the Archives in the next few days

  • Patch notes:
FEATURES
THE EXECUTIONER BALANCE UPDATE

At the moment, the cost of missing a Punishment of the Damned attack is too high, and it’s too easy to fake Rites of Judgement into a basic attack. The following adjustments address these issues.

  • Further attacks cannot be made for 1 second
  • Cooldown before further attacks after Punishment of the Damned reduced from 2.75 seconds to 2.25 seconds

  • Discordance now has limited range of 32/64/96 meters. It triggers one loud noise for a Generator when it’s first marked.

Features & Content

Many in-game objects in Dead By Daylight haven’t been changed significantly since the game’s launch. As part of our ongoing effort to enhance the game’s visuals, many of these objects got visual updates in this patch to bring them closer to our long-term vision for the appearance of the game. Some realms also got visual updates, with more coming later in future patches.

  • Visual updates of several common in-game objects:
    • Visual update of the Generators, including changes to models, animations and VFX. The Survivor repairing animations and VFX were also updated.
    • Visual update of the Pallets, including models and VFX.
    • Visual update of the Lockers.
    • Visual update of the Chests, including the model and changes to the Survivor’s interaction. This Survivor interaction has been updated
  • Visual updates to some maps, including additions of breakable walls:
    • Springwood – Updated Badham Preschool Maps I – V
    • Yamaoka Estate – Updated Family Residence and Sanctum of Wrath
  • Update aiming when using the flashlight. Up to 4.1.0, the flashlight would aim up and to the right of the center of the screen. In 4.1.0, the aiming animation was updated, which caused the flashlight to aim more towards right of center. Now, the aim should be squarely in the center.

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 4.1.2

  • Release date: August 12th 2020 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Balance

The Hillbilly

The Overheat mechanic was added to limit The Hillbilly’s ability to always use his chainsaw. With the previous increase in heat dissipation (up to -5 charges/second), and the fact that heat dissipates during various cooldown phases, the Chainsaw’s heat meter rarely became relevant. With this change, we hope to that heat generation will reach thresholds where players have to manage the heat meter more than with our previous iteration.

  • Decreased the base heat dissipation rate from -5 charges/second to -3.5 charges/second
 
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the Hillbilly’s chainsaw charge would not be fully reset properly after being stunned, leading to the Hillbilly having the ability to use the chainsaw too quickly after a stun.
  • Fixed an issue where the Hillbilly would sometimes lunge at extremely high speeds after being stunned.
  • Fixed an issue where the Nurse could sometimes blink inside hills and get stuck.
  • Fixed an issue causing Killers to be stuck mid-animation after falling from a significant height.
  • Reduce the occurrence of Sync Error code 111 on the Tally screen

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 4.1.1

  • Release date: August 12th 2020 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features
  • Updated Auras: Patch 4.1.0 introduced a brand new aura system with new aura visuals. While we received positive feedback regarding their style, the consensus seems to be that they were not sufficiently visible, especially for small objects, at long range or in bright environments. In light of this, we have temporarily replaced the new aura visuals with a different type that should be much easier to see. Expect further aura improvements in future releases.
 
Balance

Following the 4.1.0 PTB, it became clear that some of the add-ons for both The Cannibal and The Hillbilly needed further reworking. In this update, we address those addons, as well as pull back on some rebalancing changes that were too aggressive. (We’re looking at you, Engravings.)

The Cannibal

Initially, the Primer Bulb and Spark Plug add-ons sought to introduce a playstyle that revolved around going into tantrum and using a speed increase to catch up unsuspecting Survivors. In practice. the speed increase was too low for that playstyle to be worthwhile.

Now the Primer Bulb and Spark Plug add-ons will now increase rate at which Chainsaw charges replenish, providing a clearer advantage.

Spark Plug: 

  • Slightly increases the rate at which charges replenish

Primer Bulb:

  • Moderately increases the rate at which charges replenish

Long Guide Bar and The Grease add-ons to increase the maximum rev before triggering a tantrum. This means you have more maneuverability around loops while revving your chainsaw. 

Long Guide Bar:

  • Slightly increase the amount of revving available before triggering a tantrum
  • Updated rarity to Uncommon (from Common)

The Grease:

  • Moderately increase the amount of revving available before triggering a tantrum

Furthermore, we’ve reassessed our previous nerf of the Knife Scratches and Beast’s Marks add-ons. They were significantly nerfed because of The Cannibal’s changes, but we might have been too hard on them – especially considering the Tantrum meter builds up while revving. This meant you’d almost always be 99% tantrum and the slightest mistake forced you to go through the tantrum. 

Knife Scratches:

  • Reverted the charge time penalty to -12%
  • Increased the movement speed bonus to +2%

Beast’s Marks:

  • Reverted the charge time penalty to -12%
  • Increased the movement speed bonus to 3%

Next on this list are two add-ons that were given unnecessary downsides. Hopefully removing them will make the add-ons worthy of their rarity and will make them more useful. 

Light Chassis:

  • Removed the speed decrease while revving

Carburetor Tuning Guide:

  • Remove the increased recharge rate on Chainsaw charges

Finally, we’ve updated Speed Limiter to grant you even more bloodpoints on Chainsaw hits and we’ve lowered its rarity so it can be available more often.

Speed Limiter:

  • Get 100% more points for Chainsaw score events.
  • Updated rarity to Common (from Uncommon)
 
The Hillbilly

With this update, we tried making add-ons with new and interesting effects. However, during the PTB, it became clear we needed to revisit some of these add-ons to better accomplish our goals.

Black Grease:

Black Grease was inspired by The Hillbilly’s perk Enduring. It used to increase immunity to Blindness after being stunned by a pallet. We weren’t happy with how it turned out, and have come up with a brand new effect inspired by Lightborn which should provide an obvious advantage that fits right in with the new Overheat mechanic.

  • Moderately increases the Chainsaw’s rate of cooling when a flashlight is shining on you. (-5 charges/second for those of you who love numbers)

Mother’s Helpers:

Mother’s Helpers was inspired by The Hillbilly’s perk Lightborn. It used to increase your movement speed while a flashlight was shining on you. Unfortunately, flashlighting most often occurs while locked into animation, so players would usually not be able to make use of this speed boost. This new version is inspired by Enduring and should be interesting for fans of the old charge speed bonus add-ons.

  • Slightly decreases chainsaw charge time for 30 seconds after being stunned by a pallet. (12% – the same as the old Spark Plug)

Next in line, we have various add-ons that needed some tweaks or that needed to be reverted (Engravings). Here they are:

Lo Pro Chains:

Lo Pro Chains shared the downside from Speed Limiter, but the upside wasn’t enough to justify its rarity. We’ve updated it so it only deals a single health state for a short period after breaking a pallet or wall. We’ve also changed its rarity from Ultra Rare to Very Rare.

  • Survivors hit with the Chainsaw within 5 seconds of breaking a pallet or a wall are damaged for a single health state. 
  • Updated rarity to Very Rare (from Ultra Rare)

Apex Muffler:

The Apex Muffler can enable some very strong builds. Because of that, we’re increasing its rarity to Ultra Rare. We will continue to monitor this add-on closely.

  • Updated rarity to Ultra Rare (from Very Rare)

Dad’s Boots:

  • Updated rarity to Uncommon (from Common)

Death Engravings:

The initial nerf to both Engravings add-ons was an unfortunate mistake. Additionally, seeing the Overheat mechanic in action, the Engravings add-ons were much too punishing. We have reverted them to their previous versions. We will continue to monitor these add-ons closely.

  • Reverted the charge time penalty to -12%
  • Reverted the movement speed increase to +15%

Doom Engravings:

  • Reverted the charge time penalty to -12%
  • Reverted the movement speed increase to +20%

Heavy Clutch:

This add-on had a downside which limited its use a bit too strictly. It has been removed. Hopefully by mixing it with other add-ons, we’ll see new Billy sprints that aren’t possible without the add-on.

  • Removed the Chainsaw sprint steering downside

Iridescent Brick:

The Iridescent Brick used to start the Undetectable status effect timer after 5 seconds of a Chainsaw sprint. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that you were Undetectable after 5 seconds, it meant the transition to being Undetectable started. This took away the add-on’s value and made it unworthy of being an Ultra Rare. We’ve lowered the time required to transition to becoming Undetectable. We will continue to monitor this add-on closely.

  • After maintaining a Chainsaw Sprint for 2 seconds, gain the Undetectable status effect until you stop sprinting.

Tuned Carburetor:

The downside of moving at 4.4 m/s requires something fairly strong to make up for it. In that sense, the previous decrease in charge time was barely noticeable. We’ve increased it to make this add-on more appealing.

  • Moderately decrease Chainsaw charge time (20% up from 12%)

Speed Limiter:

Like The Cannibal’s Speed Limiter, we’ve increased the bloodpoint bonus and changed its rarity.

  • Get 100% more points for Chainsaw score events
  • Updated rarity to Common (from Uncommon)

Dead by Daylight – Ver. 4.1.0 (Mid-Chapter)

  • Release date: May 23rd 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
FEATURES
  • Aura Rework – Refactored the Aura System on a technical level to make sure the system is easier to maintain and less prone to bugs in the future. Visuals for the Refactor were changed to support the new refactor. Functionally the system has not been significantly changed, however the appearance of auras is noticeably different.
  • Added a Promo Code System to the Store – Keep your eyes on our forums / social media for promotional codes that you can use in-game in the future.
  • Killer Selection – Killers can no longer change characters while searching for a match / in a lobby (excluding custom matches). This will soon be used by the new matchmaking system to provide better match balance based on your skill with each killer individually, instead of a global killer rating.
 
BALANCE
THE CANNIBAL

The Cannibal was one of our less-popular Killers, so we are pushing to lessen some of the character’s weaknesses while chasing Survivors. Cannibal players will see a higher skill ceiling and new ways to master the power. His add-ons were changed to match our rarity composition requirements, remove overlap with the Hillbilly’s add-ons, and open up more builds.

Power Changes

Added Chainsaw Sweep charges. Using the Chainsaw will consume a charge and trigger a Chainsaw Sweep. During this time, The Cannibal can extend the Chainsaw Sweep by pressing the power button before the power bar fully depletes. The more charges are used, the longer the miss cooldown / tantrum (if colliding with obstacles). 

The numbers: 

  • The Cannibal starts with charges 
  • Triggering the chainsaw will start a Chainsaw Sweep that lasts seconds
  • During the Sweep, each charge used after that will reset the Chainsaw Sweep timer back to seconds
  • Each additional charge used increases the missed chainsaw attack cooldown / tantrum duration by 1 second
  • Charges refill at a rate of charge every seconds when the chainsaw is not being used
  • The Cannibal’s maximum speed during a Chainsaw Sweep has increased to 5.29 m/s from 5.06 m/s 

Furthermore, if The Cannibal revs the chainsaw for too long, a tantrum is automatically triggered for the base duration of seconds.

When a tantrum is triggered, all remaining charges are consumed. 

The tantrum meter will pause as soon as the power button is released and will start going down when the chainsaw is put away.

THE HILLBILLY

The Hillbilly has a versatile kit with traversal and double-damage effects as a part of his base power, leading this character to overperform compared to other Killers. These changes introduce a resource management aspect to place some limitations on access to his tools.

Power Changes

Added the overheat mechanic. Using the chainsaw will now build up heat. When reaching the maximum amount of heat, the chainsaw overheats and cannot be used until it has cooled off. 

The numbers:

  • Starting a rev adds 5 charges. 
  • Actively revving adds charges per second 
  • Actively sprinting adds charges per second 
  • When not using the chainsaw, the heat meter dissipates at a rate of -5 charges per second

If the chainsaw overheats during a chainsaw sprint: 

  • The sprint is not interrupted 
  • The chainsaw goes through the cooldown phase after the sprint has ended

The heat meter will pause as soon as the power button is released and will start going down when the chainsaw is put away. Furthermore, the heat meter does not progress during The Hillbilly’s various cooldown phases. This includes a chainsaw miss, a chainsaw hit and colliding with an obstacle.

PERK UPDATES

Franklin’s Demise

The changes to Franklin’s Demise add a risk factor for Survivors so they need to balance the risk/reward of going after the dropped item within the time limit.

  • Franklin’s Demise: Instead of the item losing charges when dropped, the Entity will consume the item after 150/120/90 seconds if it is not picked up. Additionally, Franklin’s Demise will reveal the aura of items on the ground within 32/32/32 meters.

Knock Out

Knock Out has been underperforming and is underpicked by Killers. Adding the temporary slowdown to “crawling” fits the flavor of the perk while giving it another gameplay dimension.

  • Knock Out: Now triggers on basic attacks only. Additionally, Survivors put in the dying state by your basic attacks will crawl 50/50/50% slower for 15/15/15 seconds. During this time, they are affected by the Blindness status effect. 

Lightborn

Lightborn’s effect only partially resisted Blind effects in the past, but this often wasn’t worth a full perk slot for a Killer and led to this perk being underutilized. These changes make it a more attractive option for Killers who want this effect.

  • Lightborn: Grants immunity to blindness caused by flashlights and firecrackers. Survivors that attempt blinding you have their aura revealed for 6/8/10 seconds. 

Tinkerer

Tinkerer has a useful effect but it was hard to get the full benefit of it due to the high repair progress threshold. Lowering that threshold and increasing the Undetectable duration makes it easier to use its benefits as a Killer.

  • Tinkerer: Now triggers at 70/70/70% (down from 85%) and grants the Undetectable status effect for 12/14/16 seconds (up from 8/10/12)

Balance

  • The Trapper’s Bear Traps can now be reset without needing to pick them up first.

The Doctor Changes

With the update The Doctor received in the last mid-chapter, there are now two ways to inflict Madness: Shock Therapy, and Static Blast. To make it clearer what is required to increase a Survivor’s Madness level, we are making the following changes:

  • Madness no longer decays passively over time.
  • Shock Therapy will add half of a Madness level to any Survivors hit.
  • Static Blast will add a full Madness level to any Survivors hit.
  • Reverse skill checks now happen 2/3 of the time an insane skill check is triggered by default.

In numbers:

Previously, the thresholds for madness tier 1, 2 and 3 were 555, and 105 points respectively.

Shock therapy granted 30 points of madness and static blast granted 50.

While outside the terror radius, madness would decay by 0.5 points per second.

These thresholds were based on how much passive madness gain the Doctor used to have. Without that mechanic, the madness thresholds can be simplified.

The new tiers for madness 1, 2 and 3 are 12 and 3 points respectively.

Shock therapy grants 0.5 points of madness and static blast grants 1

There is no passive madness decay. The only way to reduce madness is to Snap Out Of It.

Previously, the “Order” add-ons increased the amount of madness inflicted by Static blast. They now reduce Static Blast’s cooldown instead.

Previously, the “Discipline” add-ons increased the amount of madness inflicted by Shock Therapy. They now reduce the detonation delay of Shock Therapy instead.

Further add-on changes:

The Doctor’s madness can be customized by using his “Affliction” add-ons: Order, Discipline, Calm, Restraint and Obedience. Add-ons of the same type granted similar debuffs, but each one varied slightly in magnitude or madness threshold. The end result was that it was often unclear which add-on did what, and the lower rarity add-ons often seemed very unappealing in comparison to the higher rarity ones.

The “Afflictions” have now been standardized to be the same across all rarities. Only the passive bonus is different.

Order (Illusionary Pallets)

  • Order – Class 1/2/3: Reduces the cooldown of Static Blast by 2/4/6 seconds

The Affliction of Order used to vary in terms of what madness tier was required to show pallets, and how far away from the doctor pallets could spawn. These variables are now the same across Order – Class 1, Order – Class 2 and Order – Carter’s Notes

Survivors with Madness suffer from the Affliction of Order:

  • Broken pallets may appear to be replaced with Illusionary Pallets that persist until approached.
  • A new Illusionary Pallet is generated at the location of a random broken pallet very 20 seconds.
  • The Doctor shares in his patients’ Madness in order to read the auras of Illusionary Pallets.

Discipline (Illusionary Killer Stain):

  • Discipline – Class 1/2/3: Now reduces the detonation delay of Shock Therapy by -0.1 seconds, -0.2 seconds and -0.3 seconds.

The Affliction of Discipline used to vary in terms of how long the effect would stay active and whether they required a chase to activate. These variables are now the same across Discipline – Class 2, Discipline – Class 3 and Discipline – Carter’s Notes

Survivors with Madness suffer from the Affliction of Discipline:

  • Madness II: While in a chase, survivors perceive an Illusionary Red Stain and Terror Radius as though The Doctor were right behind them. This effect persists for 6 seconds after the chase ends.
  • Madness III: Illusionary Red Stain and Terror Radius are constantly active.
  • The Doctor shares in his patients’ Madness in order to see the Illusionary Red Stain.

Restraint (Illusionary Doctor):

  • Restraint – Class 1,2,3: Now reveals Survivors’ auras for 1/2/3 seconds.

The Affliction of Restraint used to vary in terms of how much extra duration would be granted to illusionary doctor hallucinations. These variables are now the same across Restraint – Class 2, Restraint – Class 3 and Restraint – Carter’s Notes.

The passive bonuses of the restraint add-ons have not been changed.

Survivors with Madness suffer from the Affliction of Restraint:

  • Increased Illusionary Doctor duration to 8 seconds (These hallucinations normally last 1 second)
  • The Doctor shares in his patients’ Madness in order to read the Auras of Illusionary Doctors at any level. (This effect is normally only active in madness 3)

Calm (Illusionary Terror Radius)

  • Calm – Class 1,2,3: Terror radius increased/decreased by 4/6/8 meters

Additive modifiers for Terror Radius are clearer and the result of stacking multiple modifiers is simpler to calculate. This is a slight increase in the effect for Class 1 and 2, and Carter’s Notes are equivalent (25% of 32 is 8)

The Affliction of Calm used to vary in terms of what madness tier was required to activate it, how long it stayed active, and how long it took between activations. These variables are now the same across Calm – Class 1, Calm – Class 2 and Calm – Carter’s Notes

Survivors with Madness suffer from the Affliction of Calm:

  • Madness II: Intermittently causes survivors to hear a distant illusionary Heartbeat (10-15 seconds active, 30-45 seconds inactive)
  • Madness III: Constantly causes survivors to hear a distant illusionary Heartbeat

Obedience (Reverse Skill Checks)

Obedience broke the pattern of affliction add-ons and has been removed. Reverse skill checks have been integrated into the Doctor’s base ability.

When afflicted by a Madness Skill Check, there is a 33% chance of an off-center skill check, a 33% chance of a reverse skill check, and a 33% chance of a reverse off-center skill check. This is baseline and requires no add-ons.

Scrapped Tape, which was previously removed, has returned to take Obedience – Class III’s place.

Iridescent King

Previously, this add-on would inflict a random affliction on a survivor every time they were shocked. These afflictions would stack, until a survivor had all 5 afflictions after 5 shocks. However, this was mostly unnecessary, as these afflictions still had the same madness thresholds for activation. In light of the changes to the afflictions, Iridescent King has been simplified and the need to shock survivors to inflict afflictions has been removed:

Survivors with Madness suffer from the Afflictions of CalmDisciplineOrder, and Restraint:

  • Intermittently causes survivors to hear a distant illusionary Heartbeat.
  • While in a chase, survivors perceive an Illusionary Red Stain and Terror Radius as though The Doctor were right behind them. This effect persists for 6 seconds after the chase ends and is constantly active in Madness III.
  • Broken pallets may appear to be replaced with Illusionary Pallets that persist until approached. A new Ilusionary Pallet is generated at the location of a random broken pallet every 20 seconds.
  • Increases Illusionary Doctor duration to 8 seconds and grants the ability to read their auras at any level of madness.

Electrodes:

The electrode add-ons increased shock therapy range by a percentage at the cost of a small penalty to shock therapy charge speed. This has been changed to grant extra range (in meters) with no penalty.

(The base range of Shock Therapy is 10 meters)

Mouldy Electrode: Increases the range of Shock Therapy by 2 meters (previously +15% range, -5% charge speed)

Polished Electrode: Increases the range of Shock Therapy by 3 meters (previously +25% range, -10% charge speed)

High-Stimulus Electrode: Increases the range of Shock Therapy 4 meters (previously +35% range, -15% charge speed)

Interview Tape: Range increased from 20 meters to 24 meters

Survivor Perks

  • Saboteur: See Hook auras in a 56 meters radius from the pickup spot if a Survivor is being carried. Sabotaging a Hook without a toolbox takes 2.5 seconds. The Sabotage action has a 60 seconds cooldown.
  • The Perk Ace in the Hole now adds the ability to keep the addons when escaping a trial with an item.

Killer Perks

The Doctor changes

Static Blast

Static Blast is a new mechanic for The Doctor. We removed the Treatment Mode and the ability to switch between modes. The Doctor will always be able to hit with his primary weapon, use Shock Therapy (which now has a 1.5-second cooldown), and can use Static Blast. Static Blast takes 2 seconds to activate, and has a 60 second cooldown. Effects:

  • The Doctor’s Static Blast causes all Survivors within his terror radius to gain 50 Madness points.
  • The Doctor will laugh if the Static Blast affects any Survivor.
  • Affected Survivors will scream; they give away their location if their Madness level increases.
  • Survivors outside the Terror Radius hear a direction-neutral audio cue when the ability is being charged and when it fires.
  • Survivors inside the Terror Radius hear direction-revealing audio cues for the charge and fire of the ability.
  • Scoring event for hitting Survivors.
