Dead by Daylight – Ver. 7.5.0

  • Release date: January 30th 2024 (North America, Europe) / January 31st 2024 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Features
Field of View Settings

There is a new settings option in DbD! Players now have the ability to adjust their FOV, or field-of-view, with a slider in the Settings Menu. This allows players with a first-person-camera (Killers, with the exception of The Good Guy) to adjust their field-of-view, reducing motion-sickness and other accessibility issues. This feature is initially in the Beta Tab while we allow for thorough testing.

FOV Perk Updates
  • Shadowborn
  • When blinded by any means, gain a 6/8/10% Haste Status Effect for 10 seconds (new functionality)
  • Monitor and Abuse
  • While in a chase, your Terror Radius is increased by 8 meters. Otherwise, your Terror Radius is decreased by 8 meters (FoV clause was removed)
Generators System Update

The 3-gen strategy (identifying the closest 3 Generators and defending only them) has become very strong, especially on certain Killers. This can lead to very long games and frustration. To help prevent such situations, the following now applies:

  • Each Generator can only suffer 8 regression events maximum.
  • After the max has been reached on a Generator, that Generator can no longer be regressed by the Killer (including kicks, Add-ons, and Perk-related regressions).
    • Number of regressions per Generator is indicated by increasing VFX after 3 or more regression events.
    • Gens at max regression events cannot regress by the Killer (including kicks, Add-ons, and Perk-related regressions).
  • Survivors failing Skill Checks still regress Generators normally and do not count as regression events.
  • Killer kick regression is increased from 2.5% to 5%.
  • “Gen tapping” is no longer possible. To stop a Generator from regressing, a Survivor must repair 5% of the Generator.
    • Regression does not occur while repairs are in progress.
Perks Affected
  • Hex: Ruin
  • All Generators are affected by Hex: Ruin. While a Generator is not being repaired by a Survivor, it will immediately and automatically regress repair progress at 50%/75%/100% of the normal regression speed. (no longer deactivates when a Survivor is killed).
  • Surge and Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance
  • Does not create a loud noise notification if no progress is lost on the Generator.
  • Oppression
  • Only causes a regression event on the Generator that was kicked.
  • Overcharge
  • Only the initiating kick counts as a regression event.
Content
  • Re-enabled the Nowhere to Hide Perk.
  • Re-enabled The Knight Killer.
New Survivor – Alan Wake

Dead by Daylight welcomes a new famous Survivor into The Fog – Alan Wake!

Perks
  • Champion of Light
  • While you are holding a Flashlight, this Perk activates. When you are shining a flashlight, you have 50% Haste. When you successfully blind the Killer, they also gain 20% Hindered for 6 seconds. This effect cannot stack with itself. Then, this Perk goes on cool-down for 80/70/60 seconds.
  • Boon: Illumination
  • Press and hold the Ability button 1 near a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a Boon Totem. Soft chimes ring out in a 24 meter range. Survivors inside your Boon Totem’s range see the aura of all Chests and all Generators in blue. If you have a lit Boon Totem, you cleanse or bless Totems 6/8/10% faster. You can only bless one Totem at a time. All equipped Boon Perks are active on your Boon Totem.
  • Deadline
  • This Perk activates when you are injured. Skill Checks appear 6/8/10% more frequently when repairing or healing and appear in random places. The penalty for missing Skill Checks is reduced by 50%.
Killer Update – The Hillbilly
Killer Power

Press and hold the Power button to break into a Chainsaw Sprint. Survivors hit during a Chainsaw Sprint are put into the dying state. Revving the Chainsaw, and sprinting with the Chainsaw each cause the Overdrive meter to increase.

Maps
  • Mount Ormond updates

We made some changes to Mount Ormond. The layout and main building are staying the same. but we decided to address the fact that the front of the Building, representing an entrance, had no gameplay or interesting loop. It was a big pile of rocks and not much else. So we went updated the gameplay to make it more fluid and fitting with the loops and to actually add gameplay. The Art team went through as well to make things look nice.

In the back of the building we had a couple of tiles that were simple loops, but that didn’t have interesting gameplay. We updated this and improved the quality there as well.
