Let’s celebrate Halloween and much more in the latest update for Dead by Daylight! Players and fans will be happy to know that a whole lot is coming down the pipeline in Dead by Daylight this October.
The Archives – Tome 5: Unleashed
A new Archive entry has arrived. Dead by Daylight’s latest addition to the game, Tome 5 Unleashed, will be available to players on October 21.
This Tome allows players to unlock memories for The Hillbilly, Nea Karlsson, and The Blight. The Blight’s story is explored deeper as players have access to the conclusion of the original Hallowed Blight event storyline from 2018, as well as all past Hallowed Blight lore content.
For the first time since The Archives’ inception, a brand new challenge type is introduced: the Pustula Plants. This fowl flora infects the body and mind and mutates the host until they are under the control of the plant. Once selected in the Auris Web, players will have to work with the plants to complete the challenge.
Within the Tome, players will be able to earn 4 progressively growing Pustula Plant Charms across the 4 levels. Players will also enjoy 30% off the price of Auric Cells on characters Adam Francis and The Clown between October 21 and October 28 to celebrate the release.
The Realm Beyond Graphical Update
Dead by Daylight is currently getting a complete re-mastery of its graphics. Over the course of the following year, with each new chapter, we will add a content drop featuring graphically updated levels, lighting, animations, etc. This way, as players and fans inch closer to our game’s5th anniversary in 2021, the game will continue to look and feel better than ever as new patches release with our regularly scheduled content updates.
Specifically, DbD will have more realistic modeling and texturing, related to and informed by character and narrative. Also, lighting and VFX improvements that make for a more immersive experience. Blood in the moonlight looks a certain way – these details matter!
Players can anticipate more environmental elements in the Killing Grounds, resulting in more immersive maps. Rooms themselves will possess a proper function and will therefore be more identifiable and informative to the player. It becomes easier for the player to understand and interact with their environment when the environment’s function reads clearly.
Finally, all these elements and upgrades come together and emerge with an emphasis on mood and ambience that serves to make the game more immersive for both Killers and Survivors.
It will be an ambitious year for DbD, but with our undying player base and our talented team of developers, it will be a new era of Dead by Daylight on an all-new generation of tech, and we couldn’t be more excited to exceed ourselves.
In the most recent update, we’re revisiting the 5 very iconic maps of the McMillan Estate, the original realm of the Trapper! Do you have what it takes to venture there?
The Eternal Blight
Starting now and running until November 4, players can enjoy an all-new Halloween in-game event called The Eternal Blight. This event features new Survivor and Killer add-ons including the very first universal Killer add-on: a dangerous chemical compound called the Blight Serum that allows Killers to use the power, Blighted Rush, after hooking Survivors. Players can also look forward to getting their hands on 4 unique Halloween-themed charms. Finally, players would be remiss not to take advantage of the giant Halloween sale on outfits in the in-game store.
