Dead By Daylight New Chapter Adds K-Pop Killer On PC PTB
The new Dead By Daylight update adds two K-pop-themed characters to its roster for Chapter 19.
A new Dead by Daylight update is now live on Steam via the game’s Player Test Build (PTB), developer Behaviour Interactive announced. The full patch notes for the update, dubbed 4.6.0, are outlined below. The update makes some changes to the game, including adding two new characters--the killer Trickster and the survivor Yun-Jin lee--as well as implementing quality-of-life improvements, and putting in more chat features. Update 4.6.0 marks the arrival of Dead By Daylight Chapter 19: All-Kill.
At the top of update 4.6.0 are the two new characters: the killer The Trickster and the survivor Yun-Jin Lee. The Trickster is a K-pop star who now enjoys making music with the bones of his enemies. Yun-Jin, meanwhile, is The Trickster’s former producer. They both come with their own set of abilities and weapons, as well as a unique special. For example, The Trickster can activate his Main Event special once his Event Meter is full. This ability gives him unlimited access to his throwing knives, increases his throw rate, and boosts his movement speed.
There are also adjustments for two other killers: The Blight and The Wraith. The Blight's point of view has been better positioned to reflect where his eyes are looking and the collision detection for his abilities has been reworked. On the other side, The Wraith's movement speed while cloaked has been increased but he now moves much slower when uncloaked.
Update 4.6.0 adds some quality-of-life improvements as well. The game now has a new chat filter feature, which should help cut some of the inappropriate language that populates the in-game chat. There are also colorblind modes that let players switch between various visual capabilities, like deuteranope and tritanope filters.
Lastly, the perk Decisive Strike will now deactivate when players repair a generator, heal themselves or another player, unhook other players, cleanse a totem, or sabotage a hook. Behaviour Interactive said the change was to prevent players from exploiting the perk by activating it to gain protection while continuing to make progress on the objective.
