Apply here By Daylight starts stalking dedicated servers next summerDec 10, 2018 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun 1v4 horrorshow Dead By Daylight will finally switch from player-hosted peer-to-peer matches to proper dedicated servers next year, developers Behaviour have announced. That should mean less lag, fewer connection interruptions, and the end of the laggy host psycho killers (qu’est qu’ils sont?) having an advantage. The devs expect to launch dedicated servers in summer 2019, which is a fair way away but a fair sign of long-term commitment to continuing to improve Dead By Daylight.

Survey link : Player Test Build | Patch Notes 2.3.0Oct 2, 2018 - Community Announcements FEATURES & CONTENT Feature - Added additional HUD information for both Survivors and Killers to see their equipped add-ons. Feature - Added additional information the in-game pause screen to show the offerings burnt at the start of the Trial. Feature - Created a new rarity for event-specific offerings, items and customization outfits and pieces. Some items from earlier events (Scorching Summer BBQ and Howling Grounds) have been updated to this rarity. Feature - Added additional progress information about the login process on the title screen. BALANCE Disabled all Moon Bouquet (lightest / darkest moonlight) offerings Added the ability to unlock perks in Bloodweb levels 2, 3 and 4 Adjusted the speed thresholds to hit a running vault (fast vault). They should now be more consistent. To hit a running vault, make sure to run straight at the window with at least 2.5 meters of clearance. Added new interaction prompt text for the running vault to make it more clear when to hit the input. It's pretty quick, so keep your eyes peeled. (Herman Carter laughs in the distance) The Spirit's phasing audio has been adjusted: Survivors within the Spirit Husk's terror radius will not hear the phasing sound. Survivors outside the Spirit Husk's terror radius can hear the Spirit's phasing sound, but will not be able to determine its direction. Survivors will no longer be able to hear the Spirit's breathing while she is phasing. Adjusted the spawning rules to reduce the possibility for Survivors to spawn next to a Killer Time to hook a survivor reduced from 2 seconds to 1.5 seconds. The hooking animation has been updated. MAP CHANGES Global Changes The minimum and maximum hook rules no longer define a random range. They now specify a minimum number of hooks to spawn and a maximum that is allowed to spawn Hooks will now spawn at least 24 meters away from each other (unless the minimum is not reached, no two hooks will be closer than 24 meters). The effects of the Petrified Oak, Moldy Oak, Rotten Oak and Putrid Oak Offerings may have changed due to the above hook changes. Pallets will now spawn at least 16 meters away from each other (unless they are forced by tile logic or unless the minimum is not reached, no two pallets will be closer than 16 meters). Hill Totems are now better hidden. Added a few extra hook spawn points to various building tiles to improve the hook spawn pool which was too restricted. Specific Changes In The Game map, slightly moved or re-positioned pallets to increase their visibility. In The Game map, a new corner tile may appear with a maze on the bottom floor. In The Game map, set the minimum number of pallets to 15. In Haddonfield, all short fences (white picket fences and hedge fences) have holes in them. Only tall fences can completely enclose a yard.

Now available on Steam 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, Starbreeze Studios has once again been inspired by Turtle Rock Studios and the Payday 2 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. 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.   [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]
