Good evening fog dwellers,

We are excited to introduce new content and functionalities to Dead by Daylight with today's patch. The full list of changes follows but we wanted to give you more detailed information on some of the changes.

Totems
A new secondary objective: the Totems. Starting today, strange objects known as totems will start appearing at random locations on the maps. You’ll quickly notice that they’re dull at the moment and don’t affect much. Nevertheless, survivors should learn to train their eyes to spot and cleanse them. Here are some details on the Totems:
  • 5 Totems appear at random positions.
  • Totems can be cleansed by survivors which permanently destroys them.
  • Cleansing a totem awards 400 Bloodpoints in the Boldness category.
Is that all there is to know about totems? Nope.

Spectator in Kill Your Friends
Starting today, a sixth player is able to join in Kill Your Friends mode. This is the first step towards the competition mode we are working on. The sixth player is especially useful to show runners who want to host and stream a tournament. The spectator can see the game from the point of view of all 4 survivors as well as the killer.

Report
The report functionality is now available in the Tally Screen after each match. You are now able to rate the match, report a player for bad behaviours such as griefing and farming, and you can also give props to players who helped in creating a strong game experience.
This first iteration of the report tool will be used to gather data and see how you guys use it. With this data we’ll be able to adjust (if needed) and then take some actions to create a safe environment within the game.

Score
This patch introduces Hard Caps on specific scoring events. This means there is a maximum amount of points you can gain from a scoring event. Additionally, some scoring events also have degrading values as you repeat the same actions (events) during a single game.
These scoring mechanics will allow us to control the total amount of points that can be earned in a match and help reduce friendly farming. It will also allow us to reintroduce old scoring events that were removed as well as integrate new scoring events without the worry of these events being too easily farmable.

Stay tuned for more scoring changes in the upcoming patches.

Perks
We have modified 9 perks this patch, you will notice that most of the modified perks are Survivor perks. This is due to certain technical constraints which limits us from reworking some of the perks.

Don’t fret! More changes are coming for perks in general for Killer and Survivor.
Try out new perk combinations and let us know what you think about them on the Dead by Daylight Steam forums & subreddit.

Infinites
In this patch we have modified the parameters for the Entity Window blocking mechanic. It is now set to 3 window vaults before it blocks, and we have also added a condition where the window block only occurs if the survivor has been in a chase during their window jumping sequence.

We have also increased Killer vaulting speeds (closer to The Shape's Tier 2 vault speed, for reference) as we have seen that this is an effective way to cut down on infinites. The Shape has been adjusted to reflect the new base vault speed (making him still slightly faster while tiered up).

Infinite areas have been reworked with the goal of each infinite having a counter play to them. From one side the survivor may be able to fast vault whereas going in the opposite direction should result in a medium vault as the fast vault is not possible. This means as a killer, choosing which direction to chase a target can be important to catch your target!

See you in the Fog!
