Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil PROJECT W

While little has been revealed about the upcoming expansion to Resident Evil in Dead by Daylight, a new Chapter entitled PROJECT W, we do know that as well as arriving in 2022, more characters from this now-iconic franchise will also enter The Fog in DBD.

As well as this, a rework of the Raccoon City map is planned, which is also slated to arrive later this year.

DBD Chapter 24: Roots of Dread

A brand new Chapter, Roots of Dread, is set to arrive in DBD on June 7, 2022. Featuring two brand new characters, Haddie Kaur and The Dredge, alongside a new Map, The Garden of Joy – the nightmarish Chapter 24 has lots to get excited about.

Hooked on You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim

Ever thought you’d hear these words? Us neither. The long-requested DBD Dating Sim has just been revealed! Developed by Psyop (the creators of the visual novel I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator), players can expect to explore this tale and what it has to offer later this year when it releases on Steam.

Focused on trying to establish friendships or find love with iconic Killers The Trapper, The Huntress, The Wraith, and The Spirit, this non-canon story will show a brand new side to some of the asymmetrical horror’s most familiar faces.

Perk changes, loadouts & matchmaking incentives in Dead by Daylight

A highly-requested feature within the DBD community, preset loadouts have just been revealed alongside a slew of Perk adjustments and matchmaking incentives.

Close to 40 Killer and Survivor-based Perks will be receiving a facelift soon, which are set to arrive “in the coming months”, including Barbeque & Chili and Dead Hard.

If you’ve ever wanted to save particular loadouts, now is the time to get excited, as this feature is available to try out on the PTB as of May 17, 2022. You’ll be able to do everything from configuring items to cosmetics and the particular Perks themselves.

Following in the vein of other multiplayer titles, DBD will also be adding matchmaking incentives in an effort to speed up times between matches. If you decide to play a particular highlighted role for a game depending on what’s needed, you’ll receive a Bloodpoints bonus that you can spend on leveling up a character’s Bloodweb.

Prestiging a character will also change, allowing players to unlock all of a character’s Perks by progressing through each of their Prestige tiers.

Moris are due a rework too, giving Killers the chance to perform them as finishers at the end of a match.
