Developer Update Part 2 | Meta Perk Changes and Non-Meta Perk ChangesJun 24, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsRead the first part of our Developer Update, discussing the progression system overhaul, matchmaking incentives, and gameplay updates, here. During our 6th Anniversary Broadcast, we announced a new progression system and a meta-shifting perk overhaul. We’re thrilled to say that both initiatives will headline the upcoming Mid-Chapter. From the onset, it was important for us to release these changes as a package. Our objective is to shake up the current meta, provide alternatives, and make perks easier to earn. We were also careful to consider the reasons why this meta exists and address any base game issues it may have been concealing. In this post, we’ll be detailing the upcoming perk changes. All these changes will be available for testing in the Public Test Build (PTB) next week. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/9a93e627d75f5a53b548afde078ea86a27bf1f06.png Meta Perk Changes For this update, perk changes fall into one of two categories: meta perks that are used too often, and non-meta perks that serve a similar purpose but aren’t used as much. We understand that many of you have grown attached to your favourite perks and loadouts. Unfortunately, shaking up the meta inevitably leads to a few changes. Rest assured that our goal is to provide alternatives that align with your preferred playstyle while widening the scope to include more viable perk options. It’s also important to note that not every meta perk is equal, and each was considered on a case-by-case basis. So, what are Dead by Daylight’s meta perks? By referencing both community feedback and internal data, we can see that some perks stand above the rest. For Killers: Barbecue and Chilli, Hex: Ruin, Pop Goes the Weasel, Corrupt Intervention, Tinkerer, Hex: No One Escapes Death, and Scourge Hook: Pain Resonance. For Survivors: Dead Hard, Borrowed Time, Decisive Strike, Iron Will, Self-Care, and Spine Chill. We’d like to share these graphs showcasing the ten most frequently used perks for both roles. These charts alone do not explain why the meta exists – for that, we turn to community feedback – but hopefully they provide context for how heavily these perks are used. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/a3d009aac1fdc366a21e0f6a300b1f8706afab57.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/7f2c095abb5d31a74bf5da0ddcdc77732dc3dfd7.png Killer Meta Perks Barbecue and Chilli {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/7a46887459ffb8789397528c4eeab251493cc093.png Current effect: Upon hooking a Survivor, see the auras of distant Survivors for a short duration. Gain a stacking Bloodpoint bonus for each unique Survivor hooked. This perk is incredibly popular not because it’s particularly powerful, but because of the huge amount of Bloodpoints it provides. Choosing to go into a match without it massively slows your progression. We do not want Bloodpoints to be the driving factor behind perk choices, so we will be removing the Bloodpoint bonus. While we understand this change may seem shocking, please keep in mind that this update reduces the g...Developer Update Part 1 | Overhauled Progression System and Gameplay UpdatesJun 24, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsRead the second part of our Developer Update, discussing meta and non-meta perk changes, here. During our 6th Anniversary Broadcast, we announced a new progression system and a meta-shifting perk overhaul. We’re thrilled to say that both initiatives will headline the upcoming Mid-Chapter. From the onset, it was important for us to release these changes as a package. Our objective is to shake up the current meta, provide alternatives, and make perks easier to earn. We were also careful to consider the reasons why this meta exists and address any base game issues it may have been concealing. In this post, we’ll be detailing the upcoming progression system overhaul, matchmaking incentives, and gameplay updates. All these changes will be available for testing in the Public Test Build (PTB) next week. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/b029d7d5a618d913526b6fbaccf230e8f26c9311.png Overhauled Progression System Collecting all the perks has been an important goal for many players. However, since both the number of perks and characters are constantly increasing, the grind expands at an exponential rate with every new Chapter. To address this, we’re completely overhauling the way perks are earned, adding new rewards, and making completion easier than ever before. Comparison In the current system, you must reach level 40 on a given character to unlock all their teachable perks, then find those perks in the Bloodwebs of every other character. In order to unlock all the new perks on every character by the time next Chapter releases, you would need to play an estimated average of 4.1 hours every day. With this new system, that estimate decreases to an average of 1.01 hours each day – and that’s not even factoring in Bloodpoint bonuses from events, perks, or offerings. In other words, this is the single largest reduction to grind we’ve ever made, cutting it by roughly 75%. Unlocking Perks The teachable rarity is no more. Now, perks are tied directly to prestige. Prestiging a character for the first time will instantly unlock the Tier 1 versions of their unique perks for all other Killers or Survivors, making them immediately available for use without ever opening the Bloodweb. Prestiging a character for the second and third time will unlock the Tier 2 & 3 versions of their unique perks. Alternatively, higher tier versions of their perks will appear randomly in Bloodwebs once the first Tier has been unlocked. Say you prestige The Trapper. This will instantly unlock Tier 1 versions of Agitation, Brutal Strength, and Unnerving Presence on all other Killers. Tier 2 & 3 versions of these perks will now appear randomly in the Bloodweb. Prestiging The Trapper again will make Tier 2 versions of these perks immediately available, and so on. This way, you’ll only need to earn the perks once to use them on every character. The perks you’ve unlocked will be instantly available on any new characters as well, making them easier to pick up and play without a substantial Bloodpoint i...Wishlist Hooked on You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim™ NOWJun 21, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsToday marks the release of Hooked on You's Steam page!

See you on the Beach, The Dead by Daylight teamDead by Daylight 6th Anniversary EventJun 16, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsDead by Daylight’s 6th Anniversary Event is here, featuring a new offering, event-themed hooks and generators, and lavish cosmetic rewards to earn for Killers and Survivors. Seek your invitation and experience a celebration for the ages – provided you live to remember it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc51tuQccnE A REALM OF SPLENDOR From June 16th 11AM ET - 30th 11AM ET, the Entity’s realms will undergo a luxurious transformation. Sights you’ve come to recognize – generators, hooks, lockers, and more – have all been decorated for this gleefully twisted occasion. The Bloodweb will also be filled with several limited-time event items, including Masquerade Flashlights, Toolboxes, Medkits, and the return of the Anniversary Bloodpoint offering. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/2286bfa88377e094d85d7b0ba7be6ded2ead6203.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/f6b2ad24c752b6be6ac0d31238a8817062a469c0.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/921a306163ce5c98f35baae19f77511b35d2640d.png SEEK YOUR INVITATION For the duration of the Twisted Masquerade, Invitations will be placed throughout every trial. Housed atop an ornate pillar of black and gold, these Invitations will move around the map, triggering a sound cue after relocation. Upon finding one, both Killers and Survivors can claim their Invitations to earn up to 12 exclusive mask cosmetics. To successfully receive the reward, Killer players must finish a match after interacting with an Invitation. Survivor players must survive until an escape option becomes available, meaning the Exit Gates or the Hatch must open. Be careful, however – if you are left on a hook or killed the moment the Exit Gates or Hatch open, you’ll have to try again next trial. LAVISH MASK COSMETICS This is a masquerade and make no mistake – it's a twisted one. With such a deadly dress code in place, it’s only fitting that successfully claiming Invitations will earn you up to 12 collectible masks for 6 Killers and 6 Survivors. Seeing as it’s been 6 years together in The Fog, we’ve been feeling a little nostalgic. When choosing the recipients of these masks, we made sure to highlight two characters from each year of Dead by Daylight. Step into The Fog, seek out your Invitation, and unlock them all. Please note that these mask cosmetics unlock in a random order, regardless of which role you play.

However, one of the most important comments on upcoming content was made during a press conference ahead of the Dead By Daylight 6th Anniversary stream. Speaking to the media, creative director David Richard confirmed that David King is only the start of Behaviour Interactive's increasing LGBTQ+ representation in Dead By Daylight. When asked a question on whether Behaviour Interactive was satisfied with the reaction to David King's narrative development in Tome 11, which focuses on the character coming to accept his own homosexuality, and whether fans can look forward to seeing more LGBTQ+ characters in-game, Richard responded with the following: " Absolutely. I am super pleased - and I know a lot of people on the team are as well - about the reaction of our community to David King. We've seen David King utilised even more than before, and he was already a very popular character." Read the rest of the story...

Last night, during Dead by Daylight’s sixth anniversary broadcast, BHVR revealed that players can expect to see a second Resident Evil chapter, an Attack on Titan crossover, and a Dead by Daylight-inspired dating sim. During celebrations of the fifth anniversary, the first Resident Evil chapter for Dead by Daylight launched. With it came legends of horror, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine as survivors, and Nemesis as a killer. However, the map that came as a part of the chapter, Raccoon City Police Department, came with various issues and was not available for a while after launch. Considering the overall success of the chapter, with Dead by Daylight reaching its highest player count during the chapter’s launch, it comes as no surprise that we’re going to soon be seeing more faces from Resident Evil. This is the first time that Behaviour Interactive have introduced two chapters from the same franchise, and this time around, the chapter will be called ‘Project W’.

As hinted by a trademark application earlier this year, it's called Hooked on You (because of course it is), and it features four of the multiplayer horror game's loathsome killers as the potential objects of your affection. They still may decide to kill you, of course. Hooked on You swaps out Dead by Daylight's dark and oppressive colour palette for a bright, tropical setting and hand-drawn art style. The killers include the Trapper, the Huntress, the Wraith, and the Spirit, who've all gotten into swimwear for a nice beach vacation (we note with some dismay that the Trapper and the Wraith have neglected to take a shower, however). "Flirt your way into their hearts, uncovering dark twists along the way," the official website reads. "Will you find true love, forge friendships... or get hacked to death? Only you can decide." You'll do that by navigating various conversations with the killer of your dreams, which will encourage the murderous mutants to "shed their inhibitions" and "unlock deeply intimate sides of their personalities."

Even from a glance, it's clear that this killer is one of the most visually striking additions to Dead By Daylight yet - and one of the most terrifying. In a press conference, creative director David Richard shared an insight into what inspired the Dead By Daylight Chapter 24 killer and why this monstrous figure is, quite literally, the stuff of nightmares. Discussing the origin of The Dredge, Richard explains that this killer is the "physical representation of the suppressed darkness of whole town." In this town, which is partially represented by the new map coming to Dead By Daylight in Chapter 24, Garden of Joy, "all the residents hide terrible secrets dark thoughts". When this all bubbles to the surface, it creates The Dredge - a killer Richard describes as "nightmare fuel". The Dead By Daylight team's goal, according to Richard, was to create "a monster that felt extremely inhuman, chaotic, weird... Something straight out of a nightmare." Looking at The Dredge, it's safe to say that the team achieved their goal - this thing is terrifying. Read the rest of the story...

Dead by Daylight leak reveals horrific new killer The DredgeMay 8, 2022 - PCGamesNA new Dead by Daylight leak seemingly reveals the new killer coming in the horror game's Chapter 24 this month, which was supposed to be unveiled as part of the 6th-anniversary celebrations. If the leak is correct, the killer is an eyeless creature out of a Bloodborne or Amnesia nightmare called The Dredge. A leak on Reddit seems to have revealed the new Dead by Daylight The Dredge killer prior to its official showing on May 17 for the multiplayer game's sixth anniversary. The leaked pictures - which also show the rather intense new survivor Haddie Kaur too - purport to show the disgusting long-mouthed monster The Dredge as it appears in-game. If real, it's certainly the most inhuman killer in Dead by Daylight this side of the Stranger Things Demogorgon, although it has a similar vertical mouth to The Blight. The leak also reveals all of The Dredge's new abilities too and it seems its main power is darkness. Its special ability Nightfall builds the more actions The Dredge takes, like injuring or hooking a survivor, and when its meter is filled the map is flooded in "total darkness" and its abilities become enhanced.

"Since his introduction in Dead by Daylight, Survivor David King quickly became a fan-favourite," the press release says. "While a fragment of his pre-Fog life was previously revealed, there remained much to uncover. Throughout DEVOTION, fans will discover, that part of his personal struggles revolve around accepting his own identity and sexuality.

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.
