Please note that players will be able to progress for the duration of the PTB, but none of that progress will make it back to the Live version of the game. Content Killer Perk Updates Furtive Chase You become obsessed with one Survivor. You lurk in the shadows, eliminating your victims one by one. When your Obsession is hooked, Furtive Chase receives a token, up to a maximum of 2/3/4 tokens. Each token decreases your Terror Radius by 5 meters while in a chase (was 4 meters). Survivor Perk Updates Background Player When the Killer picks-up another Survivor, Background Player activates for 10 seconds. When you start running, break into a sprint at 150% of your normal Running Movement speed for 5 seconds (was 4 seconds). This perk cannot be used while suffering from Exhaustion. This perk causes exhaustion for 60/50/40 seconds. Updated Killer: The Skull Merchant Eyes in the Sky The Skull Merchant begins the match with six Drones. Press the Power button to deploy a Drone, which conducts an invisible, continuous sweeping scan. If a Survivor is detected, the Drone becomes active, which makes the Drone’s scan lines visible. Once detected by a scan line, a Survivor gains scan immunity and cannot be detected by other scan lines for 3 seconds. Survivors can attempt to hack Drones. Failure activates the Drone and partially fills their Lock On meter; Success disables the Drone for 45 seconds. Removed the Active Zone (cylinder). Removed remote Activation of Drones. The Killer now starts with 6 drones. The minimum distance between drones is now 16 meters. The Drone radius is now 8 meters. Radar Press the Ability Button to open a Radar to see the locations of Survivors detected by Drones or those with Claw Traps. Drones can be recalled with the Radar. Each Survivor detected on the Radar increases The Skull Merchant’s movement speed. Lock On The Lock On meter fills when scanned by a Drone and when failing to disable a Drone. When the meter is full, the Survivor receives a Claw Trap, becomes Injured, and suffers from the Broken status effect. Additional scans briefly apply the Hindered status effect. A Claw Trap broadcasts the Survivor’s location to the Killer and is only removed when its battery dies. Removed the Exposed status effect from Lock On. Other Daily rituals, Achievements, Loading Tips, and Score Events have been updated accordingly. Updated Killer: The Trapper When setting a Bear-Trap, The Trapper gets a Haste effect of 7.5% for 5 seconds (new effect). The Coffee Grounds Addon has been updated to indicate it is an additional Haste effect. When the Trial begins, 8 Bear-Traps spawn on the map (was 6). Other Killer Tweaks Huntress Reloading hatchets takes 3 seconds (was 4 seconds).

This time, we have news to share about new features, Killer updates, and various Perk & map changes. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/5dfb4bbe85fff2d79a526b2985f6523bc8788ad7.png Anti Face-Camping You probably don’t want to find yourself on the hook in the first place, but it can quickly become frustrating if the Killer decides to wait nearby, preventing all but the most coordinated of teams from rescuing you. Camping has long been a contentious topic: While there are times where camping is the smart thing for the Killer to do (if there are Survivors nearby, for example), there’s not much the Survivor being camped can do. To help in the most extreme cases, we are introducing a new feature which may give you a second chance. Going forward, you’ll notice a new meter appears whenever you are on the hook. This meter will gradually fill whenever the Killer is near you. The closer the Killer is, the faster the meter will build. Once it is full, you’ll gain the ability to unhook yourself with a 100% chance of success, even during the second hook phase. Unhooking yourself in this way will grant you all the usual benefits such as Endurance and Haste. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/3d861fe81d86fd1cf0690b4304c548cf3ea42285.png To ensure that this cannot be abused by aggressive Survivors, the rate at which the meter fills will decrease – or potentially even stop entirely – when other Survivors are nearby. Additionally, once the exit gates are powered, this feature is disabled entirely. This is because at this point in the match, the Killer needs to do whatever they can to secure one last kill, so we can’t expect them to graciously leave the hook. This new mechanic is intended to address the most egregious camping scenarios, discouraging Killers from standing too close to a hooked Survivor for an extended period and creating opportunities for the other Survivors to make the save. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/1a83c12b3924ba42b74a92f1f35a0b329a902a84.png The Skull Merchant It’s been a while since the sound of drones first filled The Entity’s Realm. Since then, The Skull Merchant’s Eyes in the Sky have largely been used as “eyes on the generators”, leading to some very long matches. In this update, we are overhauling The Skull Merchant’s drones to reduce their effectiveness in defending generators while improving their strength in a chase. Lock On Active zones – being the main culprit behind The Skull Merchant’s ability to defend generators – are no more. On top of making Survivors exposed, these zones provided The Skull Merchant with too much information on the Survivors within them, allowing the Killer to quickly react and chase them away. With active zones removed, The Skull Merchant’s drones need a new way to lock onto Survivors. Now, whenever a Survivor is scanned by a drone’s beams, they will receive one s...Dead by Daylight teases a rework of its most hated mapSep 18, 2023 - PCGamesNDead by Daylight is the horror game of every spooky fan's dreams, offering thrilling multiplayer gameplay and a cast of iconic slasher characters to play as. Behaviour Interactive is constantly adding new features to the game, from killers and survivors to themed maps. The developer recently posted another possible update hinting toward a rework of one of Dead by Daylight's most hated maps. If you've played through the Decimated Borgo's Shattered Square map, then you know how annoyingly big, dark, and imperfect it can feel in DBD. Read the rest of the story...

Ranks in Dead by Daylight were replaced some time ago by a Grading system. These DBD grades have no bearing on your matchmaking rating (MMR) and are simply a way to keep track of your own progress. Your DBD rank is shown by a colored icon in the top right hand corner of your in-game screen, but might not mean much to you from the icon alone. If you're wondering what the point is, well, we can't blame you. That said, there is a hefty Bloodpoint reward during each Dead by Daylight grade reset depending on which level you reach. Of course, there are often other ways to get extra BP, too, including with DBD codes and Prime Gaming, so you always have a plenty to hand to level up your DBD killers and survivors.

Next DBD update - Dead by Daylight Alien release time The Alien Chapter Pack is now available on Steam!Aug 29, 2023 - Community AnnouncementsDead by Daylight’s Alien Chapter brings two iconic characters into The Fog: new Killer the Xenomorph and new Survivor Ellen Ripley. A new Map, Nostromo Wreckage, is available for all players. This Chapter Pack unlocks the Motion Tracker Charm, as well as the Very Rare Back in Action Outfit for Ellen Ripley. The new Killer is the Xenomorph. A perfect organism designed to kill, the Xenomorph emerged from the chest cavity of a host and sought cover in the shadows of the Nostromo. Using the air ducts, it killed its prey one by one, until only the human Ripley remained. Desperate for survival, Ripley destroyed the Nostromo and sought refuge in an escape vessel. As the Xenomorph went in for the kill, the airlock opened and it was ejected into the cold vacuum of space. All seemed lost, until in an instant, it disappeared in a cloud of black fog. The new Survivor is Ellen Ripley. Ellen Ripley served as a warrant officer on the Nostromo during the ship’s final voyage, when an unknown alien lifeform attached itself to one of her crew and escaped onto the ship. As the creature grew, its reign of terror continued, picking off crew members until only Ripley remained. After a harrowing escape, Ripley entered her hypersleep chamber. The dark fog of sleep slithered and coiled around her, and she closed her eyes on one nightmare... only to open them in another.

Killer Power Hidden Pursuit A series of tunnels become available on the map when the Xenomorph is in play. By accessing a Control Station, it can enter these tunnels to quickly move around the map, detect the presence of nearby Survivors, and speed up the cooldown time of its Crawler Mode ability. Exiting a Control Station tags nearby Survivors with Killer Instinct. Special Ability: Crawler Mode The Xenomorph enters Crawler Mode automatically when not on cooldown. In Crawler Mode, the Xenomorph walks on four legs and becomes stealthier, reducing its Terror Radius. While in Crawler Mode the Xenomorph also has access to a brutal Tail Attack. Map Feature: Control Stations Seven Control Stations are scattered across the map. Survivors can interact with these stations to get a Remote Flame Turret, while the Xenomorph can enter and exit the tunnels underneath the Control Stations. Special Item: Remote Flame Turret Turrets can be placed in the map to counteract the Xenomorph. When the Xenomorph enters the radius and line of sight of a Turret, the Turret attacks; this attack staggers the Xenomorph and will cause Crawler Mode to end. If a Turret successfully knocks the Xenomorph out of Crawler Mode or fires for too long, it overheats, and must be repaired by a Survivor. The Xenomorph can attack Turrets to destroy them. Perks Ultimate Weapon When you open a locker, this perk activates for 30 seconds. Survivors entering your Terror Radius scream and reveal their position and gain Blindness for 30 seconds. This perk then goes on cooldown for 40/35/30 seconds. Rapid Brutality You can no longer gain Bloodlust. Hitting a Survivor with a basic attack gives you 5% haste for 8/9/10 seconds. Alien Instinct This perk activates when you hook a Survivor. You see the aura of the farthest injured Survivor for 5 seconds and that Survivor is oblivious for 16/18/20 seconds. New Survivor - Ellen Ripley Perks Lucky Star When you hide in a locker, this perk activates. You leave no pools of blood and make no grunts of pain for 10 seconds. When you exit the locker, you see other survivors and the closest generator's aura in yellow for 10 seconds. This perk then goes on cooldown for 40/35/30 seconds. Chemical Trap After completing 70%/60%/50% progress on any generator, this perk activates. While standing next to a dropped pallet, press the Active Ability Button 2 to install a Trap, which stays active for 100/110/120 seconds. The aura of trapped pallets are revealed in yellow to all Survivors. When the Killer performs the break action on the trapped pallet, the trap explodes, and they are slowed by 50% for 4 seconds.

So who's next to walk into DBD's realms? With around four new chapters a year, it's a wonder the team at Behaviour are able to come up with new perks and powers for the new DBD killers and survivors.

Today, Dead by Daylight released its biggest and most successful update yet, a $12 expansion that adds Resident Evil’s iconic Raccoon City Police Station map and playable characters Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Nemesis to the popular 4 vs 1 asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. Originally released in 2016, this isn’t the first time Dead by Daylight has done a crossover with previous DLC including Silent Hill, Stranger Things, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, and many more iconic killers. But today’s big DBD update surpassed anything Behaviour Interactive has done before with other horror franchises -- setting a new all-time peak for the game with 95k concurrent players. Falling just short of topping the Resident Evil franchise’s own all-time peak of 107k players set last month by Village, Dead by Daylight’s new Resident Evil chapter absolutely crushed all of Capcom’s previous attempts at RE multiplayer games such as Operation Raccoon City’s 500-player peak in 2013, Umbrella Corps400-player peak in 2016, and Resistance’s 4,000-player peak last year. And with some help from one of the most active player bases on Steam, Nemesis’ debut in Dead by Daylight even topped his comeback in last year’s singleplayer Resident Evil 3 remake from Capcom, which peaked with just 59k players. Having little competition from other 4 vs 1 multiplayer games after legal troubles and various other issues lead to the demise of Evolve and Friday the 13th, Dead by Daylight's player base has continued to grow year-over-year unchallenged on Steam. Saber Interactive’s upcoming Evil Dead game that just debuted gameplay at E3 2021 looks to offer 4 vs 1 multiplayer fans something new later this year, but with an army of killers and so many players already so heavily invested, Dead by Daylight looks like it’ll be staying at the top of Steam for a while as the developers keep adding new content.Dead by Daylight Player and Viewer Count Launch NumbersJun 29, 2016 - GitHypAfter Evolve last year, you wouldn’t think another developer would try the 4 vs. 1 concept again so soon. Yet, after the success of their Payday series, Starbreeze Studios has once again been inspired by Turtle Rock Studios and publisher’s latest multiplayer game has been killing it as one of the most played games on Steam and most watched on Twitch since it launched two weeks ago. Fresh off their mobile hit, Fallout Shelter, developer Behaviour Interactive’s new PC-exclusive survival horror title, Dead by Daylight, had a strong 11,706 average player count per hour on its first day on Steam. [caption id="attachment_179928" align="aligncenter" width="771"]Dead-by-Daylight-Launch-Numbers Dead by Daylight's June 14 - June 28 Total Non-Unique Player and Viewer Numbers[/caption] Over the past two weeks, the player count values for DbD have been continuing to creep upwards and the recent 10% discount offered via the Steam Summer Sale has also helped the game crack the top 20 most played games by bringing in a peak of 18,027 players in one hour on June 26 and ranking as high as #19. Even more responsible for the game’s success than the recent sale on Steam has been its popularity on Twitch where the viewer count at times doubles and triples the player count. Some of Twitch’s top streamers have gotten hooked on the Killer vs. Team of Survivors gameplay and their viewers can’t seem to get enough of watching them gruesomely kill their friends online. Dead by Daylight has ranked as high as #2 on Twitch with a peak of 76,802 viewers in a single hour on its release date and continues to stay in Twitch’s daily top 10 most watched games. It’ll be interesting to see how long the 4 vs. 1 hype can last for Dead by Daylight. While the player counts have grown, the viewer counts have slightly decreased. Both Behaviour and Starbreeze have managed to retain playerbases in the past with constant updates to their Fallout and Payday games -- after three years Payday 2 is still holding strong in Steam’s daily top 20 most played games. Meanwhile, Evolve struggles to keep 100 players on Steam and 100 viewers on Twitch each hour as a reminder of how quickly the hype died out the last time the 4 vs. 1 concept got overhyped.
