We often make small tweaks behind the scenes to strike the right balance between wait times and match quality, but we’ve also been working on some bigger improvements to the matchmaking system thanks to your feedback. In this post, we’ll discuss two changes we’ll be making to the matchmaking system in the 6.4.0 update. These are: Team Based Ratings: Adjusting Survivor ratings based on the team’s performance as well as your own Extended Breaks: Better handling for players who are coming back from a break We’ll dive into each in more detail later in this post, but first we want to give some context for how the matchmaking system currently works. How Matchmaking Works The matchmaking system’s job is to pair you against opponents where your strategy works roughly half of the time. To do this, we give each player a hidden rating that evaluates their performance. The matchmaker then uses this rating to pair you with players of a similar rating. In order for this to work, the matchmaking system needs a win condition to determine if your rating should increase or decrease. In our case, the win condition for Survivors is escaping the trial, while a Killer’s win condition is killing Survivors. Since the game is asymmetrical, each Survivors is treated like a separate one-on-one match for the Killer. How much rating you gain or lose also depends on the ratings of your opponent: You’ll gain more rating by beating someone who’s rated higher than you and lose more by losing to someone who’s rated lower than you. It’s impossible for a matchmaking system to accurately assess your ability from a single match due to the sheer number of factors at play. Instead, the matchmaker works over the course of many matches to gradually settle you into a place where you are comfortable. To give an example, if you lose a match, the game doesn’t think you suddenly got worse- it expects you to lose some matches! If your rating is currently lower than it should be, you’ll end up winning more matches than you lose, and that loss will quickly be offset. Or if you’re already where you should be, you’ll win a roughly equal number of matches and hover around the same place. To be very clear, kills and escapes on their own are not a direct indicator of skill, but rather a proxy to skill, meaning playing well will improve your odds of winning. Ultimately, the matchmaker isn’t trying to judge whether or not you are the best player in the world, but rather find a place where your strategy works about half the time, regardless of how skillful it is. Team Based Ratings One challenge unique to asymmetrical games like Dead by Daylight is how we handle teams. Most games can check which team won a match and adjust their ratings accordingly. But this isn’t possible in an asymmetrical game like ours since Killers are playing solo. To get around this, we treat each Surv...Dead By Daylight killer The Knight revealed with new survivor and mapNov 1, 2022 - PCGamesNThe new Dead by Daylight killer update Forged in Fog has been revealed, and it will add a new killer, survivor, and map to the asymmetrical multiplayer game from Behaviour Interactive.

In this series of posts, we discuss the biggest upcoming changes and provide updates on ongoing processes. This time, we’ll cover the various features and improvements coming with next month’s 6.4.0 Update. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/3f5d6cd60eae8312cf5f9b60cde84cf3eb404cf9.png Bots in Custom Matches Kicking things off, we have a much-anticipated feature that was first announced during our Anniversary Broadcast earlier this year. Whether you’re looking for a place to practice a new Killer before hopping into live games, or you just have an irrational hatred for bots that needs to be satiated, we’re happy to announce that bots will now be available in custom games. Starting in 6.4.0, the host of a custom game can click the ‘+’ icon to add a random Survivor bot to the lobby. Don’t like the way that bot looked at you? The host can click their name and remove the bot at their discretion. You can face off against an entire lobby of robot Survivors, fill empty slots when playing with friends, or ignore them entirely and play with a partial lobby of human friends like before (but our future Robot Overlords will remember this). {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/aa1376eeeb0d26794caf9337327886372be822e7.png While the first version of the feature focuses on Survivor bots, we plan to include Killer bots in a future update so you can practice against each Killer as well. This will take some time, however, since the AI needs to be trained to use each Killer’s power first. Additionally, we have a few other improvements in store for this feature in the future, including the ability to select which characters you want by your side and their loadouts (though not all perks, items, and add-ons will be available to bots). If there’s something else that you really want to see, as always, let us know! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/7de371566c4a4b169a808be5f5c8388072ae3d23.png Visual Improvements Continuing our ongoing efforts to improve the graphics of Dead by Daylight, we have updated the visuals for breakable objects (pallets & breakable walls). Rather than making you read all about them, we figured we would show you.

I think it might be Xbox Game PassOct 26, 2022 - VG247Halloween is right around the corner, and I don’t know about any of you, but it’s definitely one of my favourite holidays of the year. Mainly because, unlike Christmas (in which I rarely get to relax, let alone boot up a game), it’s the perfect excuse for me to kick back and chill out with my favourite genre of game, and that’s horror. Admittedly, I’ve jumped on the Halloween bandwagon rather late this year. I’ve failed to decorate my flat with cardboard bats and fake cobwebs, and I’m still yet to go and acquire candy for any trick-or-treaters. That said, I dove into Xbox Game Pass recently to line up some games for the Halloween weekend; it appears that while the children knocking on my front door may not get any treats, I certainly have already got one with the gems that are on Game Pass right now.

AN EERIE ATMOSPHERE From October 13th, 11:00 AM ET – November 3rd, 11:00 AM ET, the Entity’s Realm will be transformed into a nightmarish Halloween playground. In select Realms, the sky has undergone an unsettling transformation, tearing apart to reveal a mysterious rift. In addition Generators, Hooks, the Exit Gates, and the Basement have been updated with an eerie aesthetic, setting an appropriately ominous mood. The Bloodweb will also see the return of the Will O' Wisp Flashlight, the All Hallows' Eve Lunchbox Med-Kit, the Blight Serum, and a new Haunted by Daylight Bloodpoint Offering. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/11814497/bad08ebc4fecafc17f4156f51301c72fae3b7474.png PUMPKIN SEASON This year, Pumpkins are making a triumphant return -- at least, until they are mercilessly stomped into orange paste. Once again, destroying a Pumpkin will lead to one of three outcomes: the Haste Status Effect (move faster), the Hindered Status Effect (move slower), or nothing at all. Destroying Pumpkins may also grant you Void Energy, a new gameplay mechanic introduced in Haunted by Daylight. Speaking of which... SEEK VOID ENERGY For the duration of the Event, players must complete specific objectives to collect Void Energy. Once sufficient Void Energy has been collected, seek out an Unstable Rift to deposit your haul and earn up to 12 Halloween Cosmetics for Killer and Survivor. What Are Void Energy and Unstable Rifts? A strange and inexplicable substance from a Realm beyond, Void Energy must be collected and deposited in an Unstable Rift. Players can carry up to 15 Void Energy at a time. Depositing a total of 30 in a single match will net you one of 12 rewards. How do I collect Void Energy? Survivors collect Void Energy by repairing Halloween Generators, while Killers collect it by hooking Survivors on Halloween Hooks. It’s possible for both sides to steal Void Energy from one another, either by downing a Survivor or stunning the Killer. Survivor Repairing Halloween Generators Stunning a Killer carrying Void Energy Destroying a Pumpkin Killer Hooking Survivors on Halloween Hooks Downing a Survivor carrying Void Energy Destroying a Pumpkin Where do I find Unstable Rifts? The moment a trial begins, up to 3 Unstable Rifts will spawn across the Map. Seek them out quickly, as they will eventually disappear if left alone – but don’t worry, they will respawn shortly. Once you find an Unstable Rift, you can deposit your Void Energy, earning bonus Bloodpoints and gaining a temporary Haste speed boost in the process. After doing so, the Rift will disappear, respawning at a new location shortly thereafter.

Plummet into the devious mind behind the mask. Discover what keeps a horror aficionado up at night. Uncover eldritch secrets long buried, concealing a terrifying truth beyond rationality. NEW MEMORIES The Ghost Face – Beneath The Mask To see his hard-earned image lampooned was downright offensive. Such a gross misunderstanding of his message. It wasn’t even smart enough to be satire. It was bold-faced disrespect, and it would not go unpunished. Mikaela Reid – And Soon The Fog For year, Mikaela found comfort in the dark delights of horror fiction. But when it came time to put pen to paper and conjure her own spooky tales, she was met with an entirely different sort of fear: writer’s block. The House of Arkham Even to those aware of its presence, The Entity remains shrouded in mystery. Yet there are some who seek its favor, whose twisted rituals are reserved for the darkest crevices of the Earth. NEW OUTFITS Tome 13: MALEVOLENCE offers glimpses into the memories of The Ghost Face and Mikaela Reid, shining a light on their lives before The Fog. Progress through the Free Track and Premium Track of The Rift to unlock Outfits for The Ghost Face, Mikaela Reid, The Wraith, and Meg Thomas, and more – as well as Community-Contest winning Outfits for The Artist, and Yui Kimura. And that’s not all. For the first time, you can progress beyond Tier 70 to unlock Deep Rift Outfits, variations of new Outfits exclusive to The Rift. We’re happy to confirm that the Free Track will now include a total of 500K Bloodpoints, which ensures that every tier will earn players a new reward. You’ll also be able to unlock four new masks for The Ghost Face, including one that really highlights his macabre sense of humor. Wassup? NEW CHALLENGES Complete challenges to progress further in the Tome and its associated Rift. Tomes are separated into several Levels, each containing a new layout for the Auris Web with more challenges, lore entries, Bloodpoints, and Rift Fragments. Tome 13 features the new Pink Glyph for Survivors, which may be the most dangerous challenge yet. Approach the Glyph without being seen for too long – otherwise, you’ll end up Exposed for a moderate duration. Plan your routes carefully, take cover, and don't forget to look over your shoulder. The memories of The Ghost Face, Mikaela Reid, and more await in TOME 13: MALEVOLENCE, now available to unlock.

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.
