7.6.0 Patch Notes

Content

New Perk Type: Invocation

Invocations are a new type of Survivor Perk. Invocations require Survivors to activate a salt circle in the Basement; on activation, a penalty is paid in exchange for a large boost.

New Survivor - Sable Ward

Perks

  • Invocation: Weaving Spiders
  • When in the Basement near the circle, press the ability button 1 to begin the Invocation.
  • Invocations take 120/120/120 seconds. Other Survivors will see your aura during this and can join an ongoing interaction, increasing the speed by 50/50/50% each. If they have an Invocation Perk equipped, they increase it by 100/100/100% instead.
  • Once the Invocation is completed: You become injured and Broken for the rest of the Trial, and all Generators instantly gain 9/12/15 charges.
  • Completing the Invocation disables that Perk for all Survivors.
  • Strength in Shadows
  • When in the basement, this Perk activates.
  • Unlocks the Strength in Shadows ability, which allows you to heal without a Med-Kit at 60/60/60% normal healing speed.
  • When you finish a heal in the basement, you see the Killer's aura for 6/8/10 seconds.
  • Wicked
  • NOTE: The PTB features an older version of the Perk which has since been replaced. The effects listed below are how the Perk functions on the PTB, but this effect will be changed before the update goes live.
  • This Perk starts with 1 Token, up to a maximum of 5/5/5 Tokens.
  • For each Token, you recover from Mangled 20/20/20% faster.
  • For each 15/15/15 seconds spent in the basement, gain 1 Token.
  • While affected by the Cursed Status Effect, you heal 8/9/10% faster.

New Killer - The Unknown

Killer Power

Press the Power button to charge UVX. Once ready, press the Attack button to launch UVX, a bouncing Projectile which creates a Blast Area upon impact. Survivors become Hindered if touched by UVX while airborne. Survivors touching the Blast Area become Weakened. Weakened Survivors lose health states if touched by Blast Area. Survivors lose Weakened by successfully Staring Down The Unknown.

Special Ability: Hallucinations

The Unknown will intermittently create Hallucinations. Hallucinations cannot be created while charging UVX, performing interactions, or in proximity to map objects like hooks. Whenever Survivors are touched by Blast Area or otherwise become Weakened, the next Hallucination's spawn time decreases by 10 seconds.

Special Ability: Teleport

The Unknown can teleport to Hallucinations, leaving behind a temporary Decoy. Survivors can remove Hallucinations from the Trial with the Dispel ability. Weakened Survivors take longer to Dispel. If Dispel is not completed, Survivors become Weakened and trigger Killer Instinct.

Perks

  • Unbound
  • This perk activates for 24/27/30 seconds after a Survivor becomes injured by any means.
  • After vaulting a window, you gain 5% Haste for 10 seconds. This effect cannot stack with itself.
  • Unforeseen
  • When you perform the Break action on a Generator, your Terror Radius transfers to the Generator for 22/26/30 seconds and its radius is set to 32/32/32 meters.
  • You gain Undetectable for that duration.
  • Then, this Perk goes on cool-down for 30/30/30 seconds.
  • Undone
  • When a Survivor misses a healing or repair Skill Check, gain 3 Tokens, up to a maximum of 18/24/30 Tokens.
  • When you perform the Break action on a Generator, if you have any Tokens, consume all of them. For each Token consumed, the Generator loses 1% total progress and then becomes blocked for 1 second.
  • Then, once the Generator is unblocked, it starts regressing.
  • This Perk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds.

New Map - Greenville Square

A new section of the Withered Isle has opened up to the players. The Greenville Square is a very different environment from what was previously seen from that Realm. It features a brand new set of tiles, including a new main building, The Theater. Make sure to explore all its layers! Look out for the Statue where two familiar friends would meet up and leave their mark. What does it mean and where will it bring us next? No one ever came back to tell us.

Mangled Update

Mangled up until now has required Survivors to heal in order to remove the effect, while also slowing down healing speeds. To create more meaningful player choice, we'll be adding a timer to every source of Mangled in the game, allowing players to choose to heal through it, or wait it out.

7.5.0 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.

New Killer - The Good Guy

Killer Power

The Good Guy has two separate modes he can switch between; Normal Mode and Hidey-Ho Mode. Due to his short height, The Good Guy also has a fixed third-person camera positioned above and behind him, giving the player a better view of his surroundings. He is also much shorter than other Killers making him very stealthy, however he leaves fading Footfalls behind as he walks.

Special Ability: Hidey-Ho Mode

Press the Secondary Power button to enter Hidey-Ho Mode for 14 seconds. While in this mode the Killer is Undetectable, and "distraction" Illusory Footfalls and audio are spawned all across the map.

  • Batteries Included
  • When within 12 meters of a completed generator, you have 5% Haste. The movement speed bonus lingers for 1/3/5 seconds after leaving the generator's range. This perk deactivates when all the generators are powered.

    • Inner Strength - Nancy Wheeler perk (was Inner Healing)

Map Updates

The largest Maps in the game, The Mother's Dwelling and The Temple of Purgation of the Red Forest Realm, have been reduced in size. This will help both roles enjoy a play area that is consistent with the other maps. While we were making adjustments to the Red Forest Realm, we also did a pass on the gameplay of the tiles and improve the navigation and the readability of the map.

The Garden of Joy also benefited from a gameplay pass. The house has been revisited to find a better combination of obstacles and reduce the strength of some of the windows. A pass on the tiles has also been done, since the visibility was making it hard for players to enjoy a better navigation in the map and bring the focus on the chase, loops and all interactions. The Killer Shack was also very crowded around the walls and made the collisions known through all realms hard to run consistently, we have cleared the area.

PTB Feedback for the House in Garden Of Joy, we noticed that the position changes of the breakable walls, made it more difficult to deal with the Windows. We have removed the breakables, the structure of house is still problematic it is noted and will be part of a future pass on the building.

Autohaven Wreckers will be more festive this year with added holiday decorations in a few places within the maps.

Content

Killer - The Skull Merchant

  • Reworked Low Power Mode Add-on:
    • Now decreases Drone Rotation speed by 100%, effectively stopping rotation.

Note: The map is not guaranteed to generate with this many pallets and will instead prematurely stop spawning pallets if the minimum pallet requirement has been reached and there are no more valid positions far enough from other pallets.

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, gain Undetectable and a 5% Haste status effect for 14/16/18 seconds. (new functionality)

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 200% of your normal Running Movement speed for 5 seconds. (was 150% for 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 10 meters.

Radar

Press the Ability Button to open a Radar to see the locations of Survivors detected by Drones or those with Claw Traps. Each Survivor detected on the Radar increases The Skull Merchant’s movement speed. The Radar can also recall drones or change the direction of their scan rotation.

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

Add-Ons

  • Adi Valente #1: Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • High-Power Floodlight: Blindness status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • Geographical Readout: Increased action speed bonus while breaking pallets and breakable walls, damaging generators, and vaulting to 20% (up from 15%). The effect is now applied for 8 seconds after deploying a drone.

  • Brown Noise Generator: Oblivious status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last until the Claw Trap is removed.
  • Loose Screw: Exhausted status applied when receiving a Claw Trap. Effects last 6 seconds (up from 3 seconds).
  • Randomised Strobes: Increases Hindered status by 1 second when a Survivor is detected by a drone.
  • Advanced Movement Prediction: Reveals Survivor’s aura when they receive a Claw Trap.
  • Ultrasonic Speaker (formerly, “Ultrasonic Trap Speaker”): Decreases scan immunity duration.
  • Expired Batteries: Decreases Claw Trap battery life (50%, instead of 60%). Increases Haste status granted when Survivors are detected on the radar.
  • Prototype Rotor: Increases drone rotation speed.
  • Iridescent Unpublished Manuscript: When a drone is disabled, the drone gains a 32m terror radius for 15 seconds. During this time, The Skull Merchant gains the Undetectable status effect.

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.

Trickster

  • Reloading knives takes 3 seconds (was 4 seconds).

Anti Face-Camp Feature

Survivors on the hook have an internal "camp meter" which fills when the Killer is nearby. The meter fills faster the closer the Killer is, but is slower when other Survivors are near (never becomes negative).

Once the meter is full, the Survivor gets a prompt allowing them to escape the hook with 100% probability. Survivors who take this action gain Endurance for 15 seconds.

This feature shuts off entirely once the Exit Gates are powered.

As part of this system, The Cannibal can no longer hit a Survivor who has Endurance twice in the same 0.5 second timespan.

Map Updates

Shattered Square Map Update

The Shattered Square Map received a lot of comments at release. Some issues were related to the objects being low to the ground and hard to see, especially when it came to Killers that are navigating with a first person camera. We did a clean up and made sure that the loops feel smoother.

There were also inconsistencies with our visual and navigation language. Objects were placed in a way that it felt possible to simply climb, because of similar angles to stairs or slopes found in other maps. This was resolved by taking away some of the objects or placing assets that match the collisions.

The line of sight was very low and gave the ability for players to see across the map. A clear line of sight can be detrimental for both roles depending of the play style. We have changed the positioning of tiles with higher line of sight blockers to be more predominant.

The size of the Map was large and we decided to reduce the size to encourage encounters, make it more dynamic and reduce the time to find interactables (generators, hooks, totems, chest, etc.)

MacMillan Estate Realm Update

The Maps of the MacMillan Estate Realm have been in the game for about 7 years. The layouts and other information have been available within the community for a while, but The Entity reminded us to give players a chaotic experience. Therefore, we are adding new variations of the MacMillan Estate Realm maps to the existing pool.

Features

Bots Improvements

Reworked the Bots Skill Check system:

  • Success rates now correlate with Skill Check size.
  • Skill Check debuffs, such as The Doctor's Madness or Hex: Huntress Lullaby, reduce the odds of hitting the Skill Check.

New Killer - The Xenomorph

Dev Note: Note that map-specific hooks will be overridden with the Xenomorph's hook when you play as or against The Xenomorph.

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.
  • Light Footed
  • When you are healthy, this perk activates. Your running footsteps are silent. This perk goes on cool-down for 28/24/20 seconds after doing a rushed action.

New Map - Nostromo Wreckage

Explore the mysterious crash site of the iconic Nostromo. Visit landmarks familiar to the fans of the Alien franchise, in a unique setting where you will find yourself chased in and out of the ship. Run the Killer around the shuttle that brought Ripley to the world of the Entity. Navigate through the alien landscape, and you may yet escape from the remains of the wrecks.

When using Plot Twist to enter the dying state, you leave no blood pools and you make no noise and you can fully recover from the dying state. When you recover by yourself using Plot Twist, you are fully healed instantly and you gain 50% Haste for 2/3/4 seconds. This perk deactivates if you recover by yourself by any means. The perk re-activates when the exit gates are powered.

  • The time a TV is disabled after a Survivor removes the Cursed Tape has been increased to 70 seconds (was 60 seconds).
  • Projection now has a 10 second cooldown. Since there is no longer a range limit on the Condemned effect, a limit is required for how frequently this can happen.

  • Being hooked while holding a Cursed Tape destroys the tape.

Grabs from unhooking Survivors have been removed. This means that the awkward mindgame when unhooking has been eliminated, helping to improve the gameplay flow. You still aren't safe whilst unhooking however, as the Killer will still be able to hit you twice before you can escape.

Release Information

Update release: 11AM ET, June 13

DLC release: 12PM ET, June 13

Times are estimates and may vary from platform to platform.

Content

New Killer: The Singularity

Power: Quantum Instantiation

A dark crystalline structure in an ancient ruin gifted—or perhaps cursed—Hux with sentience. He built a new body, and with it, a terrifying way to bend the rules of physics to his benefit.

The Singularity can shoot and spawn Biopods around the map; these Biopods can attach to any vertical surface they land on. The Singularity can control a Biopod remotely and look through it, and tag Survivors, afflicting them with a Temporal Slipstream. When Slipstreamed, The Singularity can teleport next to the Slipstreamed Survivor either by using the Biopods to tag them, or by shooting them. When a Slipstreamed Survivor is in proximity to another Survivor, the Slipstream can spread.

Special State: Overclock Mode - After a successful Slipstream teleport, the Singularity enters Overclock Mode. In this state, walls and pallets can be destroyed faster, vaulting speed is faster, and he cannot be stunned by pallets. Attempts to stun by pallet merely remove Overlock Mode and momentarily slow the Singularity.

Special Interaction: Electromagnetic Pulse - At the beginning of each Trial, several Supply Cases spawn, each containing an EMP. Survivors can use these EMPs to remove the Slipstream from themselves or others, or to destroy a Biopod. Once used, the EMP is destroyed. 

Perks:

Genetic Limits: When a Survivor finishes the healing action, they suffer the Exhausted status effect for 24/28/32 seconds.

Forced Hesitation: When a Survivor is put into the dying state by any means, all other Survivors standing within 16/16/16 meters around them suffer the hindered Status effect for 10/10/10 seconds, reducing their Movement speed by 20%. This perk goes on cooldown for 40/35/30 seconds.

Machine Learning: After performing the damage generator action, Machine Learning activates. While this perk is active, the next generator you damage will be compromised until it is completed. The generator is highlighted in Yellow. When the compromised generator is completed, you become undetectable and gain 10% Haste for 20/25/30 seconds. Then, Machine Learning deactivates. If you break a gen while another generator is compromised, the compromised generator moves to the latest one kicked.

New Survivor: Gabriel Soma

Perks:

Troubleshooter: When you are chased by the Killer, this perk activates. You see the aura of the Generator with the most progress. You see the aura of the Killer for 4/5/6 seconds after dropping a Pallet. The effect lasts for 6/8/10 seconds after being in chase, then deactivates.

Made for This: This perk activates while you are in the injured state. You run 1/2/3% faster. After you finish healing another Survivor, gain the endurance status effect for 6/8/10 seconds. Made for This cannot be used when suffering from Exhaustion but does not cause the Exhausted Status Effect.

Scavenger: While you are holding an empty toolbox, this perk activates. Succeeding a great skill check while repairing gives the perk 1 token, up to 5. when you reach maximum tokens, Once you have maximum tokens, lose all tokens and recharge the toolbox to full. Then, your generator repair speed is 50% slower for 40/35/30 seconds. This perk grants the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per Trial and will guarantee a basic Toolbox.

New Map: Dvarka Deepwood - Toba Landing

Map:

The Landing was a promise for humanity to rebuild on a new planet. The climate resources were ideal to start anew, until all went wrong, and a new lifeform takes over and it has no connection to humanity. The environment his split in two distinct biomes. A rocky and bare area that will give players a more open space to explore. A destroyed vehicle incased on spiky rocks serves as a testament of a fierce battle and can now serves as a landmark. On the opposite side of the map a lush and busy jungle will give the players a claustrophobic feeling even outside. The vegetation although menacing can be used by the survivors to hide and wait for the real threat to pass by.Between the two biomes the Toba Landing, now a desolate remnant of what was once a second chance of life is now a carcass of advance technology. Players will be able to explore every level from underneath, all the way to the top of the structure.This planet looks wild and untouched, but the more you look around, it is possible to notice a civilization once thrived and left evidence of its presence on some familiar elements, such as the shack and the exit gate.Wild life is present in the environment and a good guide to help players find their way around. Enigmatic blue flowers seem to feed on the energy of the entity and light up when source of energy like generators and exit gates are around.

Perk Updates

  • Déjà Vu
    • We have noticed growing concerns surrounding excessively long matches caused by 3-genning (Killer defending a cluster of three generators). We are working on a long term solution for a future update to limit how effective this strategy can be. However, we recognize that Survivors need more options at their disposal right now to combat 3-genning. With this in mind, some adjustments have been made to Déjà Vu: The perk will now reveal the auras of 3 generators which are in close proximity to one another indefinitely (previously for 30/45/60 seconds at the start of the trial and everytime a generator was completed) and grant a 4%/5%/6% repair speed bonus on the revealed generators (previously 3%/4%/5%).
  • Flashbang
    • After completing 70%/60%/50% progress on any generator, Flashbang activates. Enter a locker and press the Active Ability Button 1 to craft a flash grenade. (No longer requires being empty-handed)

    • Dead hard activates after you are unhooked or unhook yourself. Press the Active Ability button 1 while running to gain the Endurance status effect for the next 0.5 seconds. Causes the Exhausted Status Effect for 60/50/40 seconds. Dead Hard then deactivates.

Failing the Skill Check results in an additional 2%/3%/4% loss of progress. Succeeding the Skill Check grants no progress, but prevents the Generator explosion. After Overcharge is applied to a generator, its regression speed increases from 85% of normal to 130% of normal over the next 30 seconds.

Bloodweb Improvements

You asked for it for a long time, and it's finally here: using the Bloodweb has been made much simpler!

  • By default, nodes can now be claimed by pressing them rather than holding. If you want to revert to the old method, a setting in the Accessibility tab allows you to toggle between Press and Hold.
  • Hovering the cursor over any node in the Bloodweb that is not currently purchasable shows a red outline of a path of nodes leading up to it and displays the total Bloodpoints needed to buy all those nodes.
  • Pressing/holding on any such node automatically purchases all the nodes one-by-one on the hovered path. This may not complete if purchasing all nodes becomes limited by your Bloodpoint total or the Entity consuming nodes alon the way.
  • After reaching Prestige 1 with a character, the Bloodweb for that character will contain a new center node. Pressing/holding on it will automatically claim as much as possible of the whole Bloodweb level. The automation will prioritize Perks first and attempt to spend the minimum amount of Bloodpoints second. This will stop if you run out of Bloodpoints, but will continue with The Entity consuming nodes.

We've done the following fixes since PTB:

  • Leaving the Bloodweb menu during Automated Purchasing no longer breaks the Bloodweb.
  • Cancelling Automated Purchasing no longer breaks the Bloodweb.
  • Switching characters during Automated Purchasing will no longer be possible, as it could have led to a soft-locked state.
  • The cost of a Bloodweb node chain ending in a Rare or Very Rare Perk is now displayed correctly.
  • The Bloodweb no longer soft locks when pressing the Automated Purchasing button with low Bloodpoints.
  • Automated Purchasing no longer stops midway due to Entity shenanigans.
  • Audio cues for claiming nodes during Automated Purchasing are removed, instead replaced by a single cue at the completion of a level.
  • The speed of automatic purchase has been increased.
  • The total chain price format in the Node Tooltip has been modified with a new icon.
  • The Center node to automatically purchase nodes is now disabled when there is not enough Bloodpoints to purchase at least one node.
  • Fixed some interaction issues related to the new Bloodweb center node to purchase nodes automatically.
  • Fixed a softlock when collecting a node in the Bloodweb when starting a Matchmaking at the same time as a Killer.

Misc

  • Anonymous Mode is now available on consoles.
  • The "Hide Player Names" setting now also hides the Killer name in Custom Games.
  • Cinematic video files are now stored in Bink format.
  • The Undetectable effect now mutes the audio progressively in all cases, to mimic the Killer moving away. Previously there were some Add-Ons that were removing the Terror Radius instantly.

6.6.0 Patch Notes

Content

New Killer: The Skull Merchant

Perks:

Game Afoot: While you are chasing the Obsession, this perk activates. Damaging Generators and destroying Breakable Walls and Pallets gives you a 5% Haste Status for 8/9/10 seconds. Whenever you hit the Survivor with the total most time in chase with a Basic Attack, they become the Obsession. The Killer can only be Obsessed with one Survivor at a time.

THWACK!: After hooking a Survivor, this perk activates. The next Breakable Wall or Pallet you break will make Survivors within 28/30/32 meters scream and reveal their aura for 4 seconds. (Changed from PTB: removed activation timer and distance is now a tiered value)

Leverage: Each time you hook a Survivor, gain 1 token, up to 10. When you Hook a Survivor, this perk activates for 30 seconds. For each token, reduces the speed at which Survivors heal by 3/4/5%.

New Survivor: Thalita Lyra

Perks:

Cut Loose: After performing a rushed vault in a chase, this Perk activates. While active, your rushed vaults are silent for up to 4/5/6 seconds, and successfully performing a rushed vault during that time resets the timer. This perk goes on cool-down for 45 seconds.

Friendly Competition:Whenever you finish Repairing a Generator with at least one other Survivor, this Perk activates. You and other Survivors who finished Repairing the Generator with you get 5% increased Repair progress speed for 45/60/75 seconds. Survivors can only have one instance of this Perk's ability active at once.

Teamwork: Power of Two: Whenever you finish healing another Survivor, you both move 5% faster as long as you stay within 12 meters of the Survivor you healed or until one of you loses a Health State. Teamwork: Power of Two can only trigger once every 180/160/140 seconds. Survivors can only be affected by one Teamwork: Power of Two effect at a time.

New Survivor: Renato Lyra

Perks:

Background Player: When the Killer picks up another Survivor, Background Player activates for 10 seconds. When you start running, you break into a sprint at 150% of your normal Running Movement speed for 4 seconds and become exhausted. This perk cannot be used while exhausted. This perk causes exhaustion for 60/50/40 seconds. (Changed from PTB; now activates on pickup for 10 seconds, triggers on starting to run, increases move speed for 4 seconds)

Blood Rush: This Perk activates once you are one Hook away from instant death. While healthy, running, and suffering from Exhaustion, press the Active Ability Button 1 to lose a Health State and recover from Exhaustion instantly and gain the Broken status effect for 28/24/20 seconds. You are automatically healed from injured to healthy after 28/24/20 seconds. Being put into the Dying State will cancel the healing effect. Activating Blood Rush will disable it for the remainder of the trial. Exhaustion prevents Survivors from activating other Perks that cause Exhaustion. Broken prevents Survivors from being healed.

Teamwork: Collective Stealth:Whenever another Survivor finishes healing you, you both leave no scratch marks as long as you stay within 12 meters of the Survivor who healed you or until one of you loses a health state. Teamwork: Collective Stealth can only trigger once every 180/160/140 seconds. Survivors can only be affected by one Teamwork: Collective Stealth effect at a time.

Map Changes: Shelter Woods

A makeshift command center was erected here, its rigid walls and sharp angles standing in stark contrast to the twisted wood and soil. For those who chance upon this crude structure, the realization that this complex belongs to an apex hunter—a hunter whose prey is human—usually comes too late.

Visual Update: Red Forest

We’ve taken a lengthy visit to the Red Forest Realm, which includes the Maps Temple of Purgation and Mother’s Dwelling. How about a nice, long walk in the woods?

This update improves the Map selection process. Now, the possibility that players in a Trial will see the same Map as their previous Trial has been reduced to near-zero. It’s also unlikely that they will be sent to a recently visited Map, though the likelihood will be a little higher than near-zero.This will not impact the efficacy of Map Offerings, nor will it affect Custom Games.

Perk Changes

  • Any Means Necessary: Removed cooldown.
  • Eruption: After kicking a Generator, its aura is highlighted in yellow. Whenever a Survivor enters the Dying State, every affected Generator explodes, losing 10% worth of progress and starts to regress. Any Survivor repairing a Generator when it explodes will scream and reveal their aura 8/10/12 seconds. Eruption has a cooldown of 30 seconds. (Changed from PTB: now 10% of total progress, not current progress)

Loading Timeout

After analyzing the data on our side, we have established a set of expected loading times for each of the steps while loading into a Trial. As a result, if any player crashes or hangs while loading, we will now be able to return everyone to the Tally much earlier.

Reporting Players

We know that sometimes you may face unsportsmanlike behaviour even before a match. We have now added the option to report a player from the online lobby.

Miscellaneous Updates

Triggered scream audio

We have done a consistency pass on the following perks and addons which trigger audio feedback when the position of a Survivor is revealed:

Deathbound, Dragon's Grip, Eruption, Hex: Face the Darkness, Infectious Fright, Iron Maiden, Make Your Choice, Iridescent Family Crest, Incensed Ointment, Healing Poultice, Greasy Black Lens.

When a Survivor screams to reveal their location, the scream will be a 3d scream (instead of a 2d/mapwide scream), with a 19m max range, and a loud noise sfx is triggered.

Content 

Event - Moonlight Burrow

Archives 

  • Tome 14 - BETRAYAL Level 1 opens January 25, 11am ET.

Features 

Quality Of Life  

Survivor Activity HUD 

  • The Survivor HUD now features an indicator that appears whenever they or their teammates engage in an activity. Activities include Repairing a Generator, being chased by the Killer, Healing, recovering from the Dying State, Cleansing or Blessing a Totem, opening an Exit Gate, or interacting with a Killer’s Power.

Merciless Killer  

  • Moving forward, getting 4 Kills will earn the Killer a Merciless Killer rating, rather than the previous requirement of a double pip.

The Queuing Experience  

  • Players are now able to browse the Store, The Archives and Daily Rituals, while queueing for a match. If they are mid-purchase when the lobby is ready, the game will wait for the conclusion of the transaction – though it will kick the player if the delay is too long.  
  • While queued, Killers can browse their other Killers and change their loadouts and customizations. This will not affect their currently queued character, who remains shown beside the "Looking for Match" message.  

Dev Note: Due to a potential disconnection during cinematics, we had to disable the viewing of cinematics when in a party or queueing for a match.

Wiggling  

Following a period in BETA, the updated Wiggle system is now standard for all players. Rather than mashing the left and right inputs to Wiggle, it now follows a ping-pong Skill Check system.   

Based on the feedback we’ve received from players – thank you very much – we have made a few adjustments to the system.  

  • Controller input handling has been improved, which should allow Killers to respond to Wiggling more efficiently while carrying Survivors.    
  • Survivors no longer shorten carry time by hitting Great Skill Checks. Instead, Great Skill Checks will increase resistance for the Killer. 
  • The size of the Great Skill Check zone has been slightly increased. We’ve also updated the Wiggling sound effects for improved feedback.  

Balance Changes  

The Knight   

Now that the Forged In Fog Chapter has been released for several weeks, we have updated several aspects of The Knight’s Base Kit:  

  • While using his Power, The Knight is now forced out of Guard Summon Mode after 10 seconds. 
  • While tracing a Patrol Path, The Knight’s Orb shrinks with distance travelled and disappears completely after 10m.  
  • When The Knight creates a Patrol Path longer than 10m, he will gain the Haste Status Effect. The Effect’s duration depends on the length of the Path, beginning at 2 seconds and increasing to 10 seconds at the maximum distance of 32m. The 10-second duration was 6 seconds on the PTB.
  • When a Guard detects a Survivor: If your Patrol Path is over 10m, the time it takes that Guard to reach the Survivor has been decreased. This reduction depends on the length of your Path, ranging from the default 10% to a maximum of 25% if your Path reaches 32m. Basically, the longer your Patrol Path, the faster your Guard will move once he detects a Survivor.   
  • Using a Guard to damage a Generator now grants an instant 5% loss of progress (previously 2.5%).   

Add-On Updates:  

  • Healing Poultice: When Survivors are within 24m of The Assassin when he spawns, their locations will be revealed for 5 seconds (up from 3).   

The Nurse  

The Nurse holds an interesting place in the Killer Roster. Though her Power can be challenging to master, she can be extremely deadly in practiced hands, especially with certain Perks that accentuate her mobility. While we don’t want to completely overhaul her, we have made some updates to The Nurse, including a pass on her Add-Ons.  

In addition, The Nurse is officially the latest Killer to receive her own theme in the menu, as well as a new Terror Radius and Chase Music.  

Base Kit:   

  • Any Attack made after Blinking is now a Blink Attack, not a Basic Attack. This will impact how The Nurse synergizes with certain Perks, including those that trigger the Exposed Status Effect.  

Add-On Updates:  

  • Catatonic Boy’s Treasure: Reduces extra fatigue from Chain Blinks by 65% (was 100).   
  • Dark Cincture: Increases movement speed after a Blink but before the following fatigue by 30%.  
  • Heavy Panting: Extends the duration of a Lunge by 30% after more than one Blink.  
  • Ataxic Respiration: Reduces base Blink fatigue duration by 7% (was 12%).  
  • Fragile Wheeze: Blink Attacks inflict the Mangled status effect.  
  • Campbell's Last Breath: After reappearing from a fully charged Blink, The Nurse immediately Blinks again at full charge in the direction she is currently facing. This only works if The Nurse has a remaining Blink charge (was originally a half-charged Blink).  
  • "Bad Man's" Last Breath: Hitting a Survivor with a successful Blink Attack grants the Undetectable status effect for 25 seconds (up from 16). This effect may be only triggered once every 45 seconds (down from 60).  
  • Kavanaugh's Last Breath: When succumbing to fatigue, any Survivors within 8 meters of The Nurse are afflicted with the Blindness status effect for 60 seconds.  
  • Jenner's Last Breath: Once The Nurse has exhausted all her Blinks, The Nurse can immediately Blink back to her original position by pressing the Active Ability Button. Must be triggered before The Nurse succumbs to fatigue. After returning to her original position, one Blink charge is restored (added restoration of 1 Blink charge; this is a change from the PTB where all charges were restored).  
  • Torn Bookmark: Adds 1 Blink charge. Increases Blink recharge time by 30% (was 50%).  
  • Matchbox: Sets maximum number of Blink charges to 1. Increases The Nurse's base movement speed to 4.4 m/s (was 4.2 m/s, no longer allows other addons to increase Blink charges).

We’ve also adjusted the following:  

  • Improved feedback for the Spasmodic Breath Add-On. 
  • Updated Blink recharge audio to give a better indication of when Blink charges are full.

Eyrie of Crows Map 

Eyrie of Crows has received an additional balance pass to make the Map more fun to play for both Survivor and Killer. 

  • The Map's length has been shortened.
  • Generators are more evenly distributed.
  • The main building has been moved toward the Map's edge. 
  • The strength of certain main building loops has been decreased.

6.4.0 Patch Notes

Features

    • New Perk - Nowhere to Hide
      • Whenever you damage a generator, reveal the aura of all survivors standing within 24 meters of your position for 3/4/5 seconds.
    • New Perk - Hex: Face the Darkness
      • Injuring a Survivor by any means lights a Dull Totem, activating the Hex. While the Hex is active, all other Survivors outside of your Terror Radius will scream every 35/30/25 seconds, revealing their positions and auras for 2 seconds. When the Survivor enters the dying state or becomes healthy, the Hex totem becomes dull again and this perk deactivates. If the Hex totem is cleansed, this perk is permanently disabled.
    • New Perk - Hubris
      • Whenever you are stunned by a Survivor, that Survivor suffers from the Exposed status effect for 10/15/20 seconds. Hubris has a cooldown of 20 seconds.

    • New Perk - Potential Energy
      • After working on a generator for 12/10/8 uninterrupted seconds, press the Active Ability Button 2 to activate this perk. When this perk is active, repairing the generator will charge this perk instead of making the generator progress. For each 1.5% of generator repair, the perk will gain one token, up to 20 tokens. While this perk has at least one token and you are working on a generator, you can press the Active Ability Button 2 to consume all the tokens and instantly make the generator progress by 1% for each token. This perk then deactivates. If you lose a health state while this perk has at least 1 tokens, the perk will lose all tokens and deactivate. Missing a skill check will also result in some charges lost.

Progression 

  • The Progression and Prestige systems have been reworked 
  • IMPORTANT: No existing perks, items, or cosmetics will be lost if they are already unlocked on a character, even if having them would contradict the rules of the new system
  • Global Bloodpoint soft-cap has been raised to 2,000,000 (was 1,000,000) 
  • Bloodpoint Categories maximum raised to 10,000 (was 8,000) 
  • Prestiging no longer removes any items, add-ons, offerings, perks, or perk slots 
  • Teachable Perks have been removed from the Bloodweb 
  • Level 51 in the Bloodweb requires the character to Prestige, costing 20,000 Bloodpoints 
  • Characters can now each be prestiged up to 100 times 
  • Prestiging a character has the following rewards: 
  • Prestige 1: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 1 
  • Prestige 2: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 2 
  • Prestige 3: The character's perks are immediately unlocked for use on all other Killers / Survivors at Tier 3 
  • Prestige 4-6: Bloodied cosmetic items (when available for the specific character) 
  • Prestige 7-9: Perk Charms for the character's perks 
  • Existing players will have their characters granted prestige levels in the new system based on the following: 
  • +2 additional levels per existing Prestige level 
  • Example: A Prestige 1 character will receive +2 levels, resulting in being Prestige 3 in the new system 
  • If the character has 70 or more Perks unlocked (Counting each tier of a perk separately): 
    • +1 level for 70-119 Perks 
    • +2 levels for 120-169 Perks 
    • +3 levels for 170-219 Perks

  • Added unique Prestige Crest artwork for each prestige level 
  • Characters who are already at Prestige 3 on the old system will unlock a Bloody Prestige Portrait on the character selection screen

    • Tier 3 - 6,000 Iridescent Shards 
  • You must purchase Tier 1 before you can purchase Tier 2, and Tier 2 before Tier 3, unless you have already unlocked the Perk via the Prestige System 
  • Having the perk already available via the Prestige System discounts the price:  
    • Tier 1 via Prestige - 2,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 2, 4,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 3 
    • Tier 2 via Prestige - 2,000 Iridescent Shards for Tier 3 
  • The same Perk may be purchased multiple times on a single rotation of Shrine of Secrets

Matchmaking Incentives

    • Note: Players can also expect queues with a large Incentive bonus to have faster queue times! 
  • Matchmaking Incentives will appear on the Main menu and in the Lobby next to the Ready button. 

UI 

  • Made UI layout changes to accommodate the new Prestige Crest on multiple screens. 
  • Character Info button has been moved to the side tabs in the Lobby UI. 
  • Replaced Character Swap buttons/prompts with a Previous/Next button in the Lobby UI footer. 

Optimization 

  • Optimized the Doctor's performance. 
    • Dev Note: The Doctor currently has one of the largest impacts on performance for Killers. These performance optimizations should help improve that on all platforms. 

 Changes from PTB 

  • Reduced Prestige node cost from 50,000 to 20,000 
  • Increased Bloodpoint Category caps from 8,000 to 10,000 
  • Increased Global Bloodpoint soft-cap from 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 
  • Rules for converting Prestige levels from the old system to the new system have been made more rewarding, but with a maximum starting point of Prestige 9 
  • Reworked the Prestige Portrait reward for players who had already reached Prestige 3 on a character 
  • Reworked the Prestige Perk Charm visuals 
  • Reworked the Prestige Crest visuals 
    • Dev Note: We received a lot of feedback on the PTB about the grind not being reduced enough when only focusing on a few characters, especially in relation to the cost of the Prestige node on the bloodweb. In response, we have reduced the BP cost of the Prestige node as well as raising various BP caps to allow for more BP to be earned, stocked up, and spent. We've additionally adjusted the transition rules for the Prestige system in such a way that players who reached Prestige 3 in the old system will immediately be Prestige 9 and thus unlock all associated perks, cosmetics, and charms immediately for the character. 
  • Endurance no longer stops a Survivor from going down if they have Deep Wound 
  • Dead Hard's Endurance duration reduced from 1 second to 0.5 seconds 
  • Off The Record is now disabled when the Exit Gates are powered 
  • Overcharge's regression has been reduced from 100%-400% to 75%-200% 
  • Botany Knowledge now has a Medkit efficiency penalty of -20% 
  • Spine Chill now has additional Terror Radius visual feedback 
  • Inner Focus no longer has a distance restriction on viewing scratch marks 
    • Dev Note: On the PTB we saw many instances where Survivors were able to queue up several instances of Endurance one after the other, and being able to tank far too many additional hits. Changing Endurance to not trigger when a player has Deep Wounds will prevent this from being as effective, as Survivors will now need to mend the Deep Wound in order to benefit from Endurance a second time. Off The Record was also proving to be too strong during the end game, since there are no required Conspicuous Actions at that point, and will now disable once the gates have been powered.

6.0.0 Patch Notes

Features

  • New Killer - The Dredge
    • New Perk: Dissolution
      • 3 seconds after injuring a Survivor by any means, Dissolution activates for 12/16/20 second(s). While Dissolution is active, if a Survivor fast vaults over a pallet inside of your Terror Radius, the Entity will break the pallet at the end of the vault, and Dissolution deactivates.
    • New Perk: Darkness Revealed
      • When you open a locker, the auras of all Survivors within 8 meters of any lockers are revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds. This perk has a 30 second cooldown.
    • New Perk: Septic Touch
      • Whenever a Survivor performs the healing action within your Terror Radius, they suffer from Blindness and Exhaustion. These effects linger for 6/8/10 seconds after a healing action is interrupted by any means.
  • New Survivor - Haddie Kaur
    • New Perk: Inner Focus
      • You can see other Survivors' Scratch Marks within a 32 meters range of you. Whenever another Survivor loses a health state within a 32 meters range of you, the Killer's aura is revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds.
    • New Perk: Residual Manifest
      • After a successful Killer Blind action, the Killer is affected by the Blindness status effect for 20/25/30 seconds. This perk grants the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per Trial and will guarantee a basic Flashlight.
    • New Perk: Overzealous
      • After cleansing any totem, this perk activates. Your generator repair speed is increased by 4%/5%/6%. This Perk deactivates when you lose a health state by any means.
  • New General Killer Perk - Shattered Hope
    • When you destroy a Boon Totem this way, the auras of all Survivors inside the Boon Totem range are revealed to you for 6/7/8 seconds.
    • UI 
      • Layout change to the Main Menu - Allows more room to gaze longingly into the campfire.
      • Menu movement when using a Controller has been removed across all screens.
    • Presets - For Loadouts & Customizations
      • The ability to save your favorite Loadout builds and Customizations has been added to the Loadout and Customizations menus respectively.
    • The Ghost Face
      • Reworked Add-on - Driver's License
        • When Marking a Survivor repairing a generator, the generator explodes and loses 20% progress. The affected generator becomes blocked for 15 seconds. When Marking multiple Survivors at the same time, the loss of progress only applies once.
    • The Pig
      • Added an extra Jigsaw Box to all matches
      • Survivors are guaranteed to find the key for their Reverse Beartrap at a maximum of 4 boxes searched (It can still be found sooner, but you will never need to search more than 4 boxes)
      • The box system has been adjusted to be more consistent overall and have a slightly higher average number of searches needed, from 2.5 to 3 (Yes, this is a buff)

    Dev Note: Some Pig players have been camping out in front of the final Jigsaw Box, blocking a survivor from being able to get rid of their Reverse Beartrap. With these changes, this strategy will no longer work! We also tweaked the way box searches are determined to prevent extreme cases of very few searches / too many searches, as well as a small buff to the average number of searches required to escape the Reverse Beartrap. Overall, this should make the boxes more consistent and slightly more powerful for The Pig.

    • Miscellaneous
      • Changed the text for Entity Displeased on the tally screen. It now reads "The Entity Hungers..."
      • Added a warning message in the Custom Games Lobby to indicate that matches do not count toward Achievements.
      • Updated desktop icon.
