Demise of the Faithful is a brand-new Chapter for Dead by Daylight, which includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map.
Embrace the immense unknown and surrender yourself to the vast inexplicable: that is the oath of the faithful. When surrounded by darkness, they look inward for a beacon of light to follow, trusting it will lead them to safety. But when their light is distorted by pride and ambition, how long will they err in the dark?
Sold to a Babylonian temple as a child, she sought the means to repel the darkness she carried inside. She found solace in sacred rituals, where she felt safe and empowered. Faithful but proud, she began to rise in status and believed she was untouchable. But when a plague began to defile her body, she confronted her gods, realizing too late that they had no impact on her fate.
Jane Romero was striving to become a powerful icon, a voice that would inspire and support those in need. She fought against powerful executives to send out her message about owning up to your insecurities. Every day she would share her beliefs and practices with thousands of avid followers. One evening, she was driving home after a particularly stressful live show, and feeling drained, she closed her eyes for a moment that had lasting consequences.
Killer: The Plague
- Main article: Adiris
Devoted to the gods with unwavering faith, this former High Priestess of Babylon convinced hundreds to follow her lead. Hymns and amulets were created in her honor, praising her beauty and foresight. She gained influence during a time of despair, when a dark plague was gaining ground and rapidly spreading across Babylon. Her faith proved to be inconsequential against the disease, which she contracted. While she hid the blisters swelling from her neck, the sores crusting her lips, and the rancid smell of sick clinging to her skin, she continued to lead the prayers, hoping to appease the gods. But no ritual could save her. Growing desperate, she banished herself from Babylon with a small group of followers and traveled North. Her condition then took a turn for the worse, interrupting their journey, and they took refuge in a cold cave, where they met their end.
Killer Power - The Plague: Vile Purge
Hold down the Power Button to charge Vile Purge. Releasing the button unleashes a stream of infectious bile.
A Survivor hit by the stream becomes infected. A Survivor accumulates an amount of infection by being hit by the stream, running, or performing interactions. Environmental objects also become infected for a short duration when hit by the stream.
If the Survivor's infection indicator is completely filled, they are forced to vomit, and continue to do so at random intervals; they become injured, if they are not already, and gain the Broken Status Effect; and they pass on their infection to other Survivors, as well as environmental objects that they interact with.
Infected Survivors can remove all infection by interacting with a Pool of Devotion. This blocks it from further use by other Survivors. If the Survivor is injured, they become healthy. If all Pools of Devotion are corrupted at the same time, all Pools of Devotion revert to their clean state and The Plague automatically gains Corrupt Purge.
The Plague may consume the corruption at a Pool of Devotion that has previously been used by a Survivor. This removes the corruption from the Pool and transforms Vile Purge into Corrupt Purge. Corrupt Purge instantly damages any Survivors hit by the stream, but does not apply infection. This effect only lasts for a short duration.
Your prayers invoke a dark power that meddles with the Survivors' chances of survival.
3 Generators located farthest from you are blocked by The Entity for 80/100/120 seconds at the start of the Trial.
Survivors cannot repair the Generators for the duration Corrupt Intervention is active.
"It shall be known across the land that the Gods curse the unfaithful." (The Tablet of Adiris, 3.7)
The cries of the unfaithful make your heart leap.
Any Survivors that are within the Killer's Terror Radius while another Survivor is put into the Dying State with a Basic Attack will yell and reveal their current location to the Killer for 4/5/6 seconds.
"Horror overcomes the heart of infidels who cry at the feet of the fallen." (Hymn of Praise, 11.4)
The display of your Powers creates a whirlwind of panic that spreads throughout the land.
You are granted the Undetectable Status Effect for the duration. The Obsession hears the Terror Radius they emit for the duration.
You can only be obsessed with one Survivor at a time.
"And terror shall take hold of a defiant non-believer, who shall falsely announce my arrival." (The Tablet of Adiris, 48.9)
Survivor: Jane Romero
- Main article: Jane Romero
The Influential Talk Show Host
Daughter of a famous actress whom she had never met, Jane was raised by her father, a struggling visual artist. Her parents had separated when she was still a baby. Growing up, she sought to emulate her mother’s powerful on-screen presence. She built herself from the ground up, auditioning for commercials, leading radio-interviews, and guest-starring in variety shows. Her authentic delivery and sharp ad-libs, however, cost her dearly. While she encountered failures along the way, she kept believing in her skills, and eventually got the opportunity to co-host a failing talk show.
Live television meant long hours, a low salary, and no stability, but it also offered her a platform to broadcast her own values. She used the show to connect with her audience and deliver genuine material, often discussing her personal issues, gathering a loyal audience that broke records. Her success also generated an increasingly demanding schedule, which she managed all by herself. The growing pressure began to smother her self-confidence and one day she snapped, delivering a catastrophic live interview. That evening, she was driving to her father’s house when she closed her eyes to rest, and opened them moments later, in the realm of The Entity.
Sharing painful experiences has the power to heal.
While injured, healing a Survivor without using a Med-Kit also heals you at a 40/45/50 % conversion rate.
"Showing up when things get rough, listening to people's problems, and supporting those in need; that's how you become stronger, that's how you grow." — Jane Romero
Achieving goals boosts your confidence.
After a Generator is completed, you leave no Scratch Marks for 6/8/10 seconds.
"Ok, stay calm. Don't overthink it and just keep moving forward: you got this." — Jane Romero
When your mind is set, there better be no one standing in your way.
While standing in a Locker for 3 seconds, Head On activates.
While Head On is activated, performing a rushed action to leave a Locker stuns the Killer for 3 seconds if they are standing within range.
Causes the Exhausted Status Effect for 60/50/40 seconds if the stun was successful.
You do not recover from Exhaustion while running.
Head On cannot be used when Exhausted or when you have accrued Stillness Crows .
"People are remembered for the challenges they overcome. You can run away and forget what you're capable of or you can face your fears and remind the world of who you are." — Jane Romero
- Main article: Red Forest
The half-forgotten Temple complex dedicated to the cleansing of the High Priestess' followers. The vertiginous hypo-style hall was believed to hold the weight of the heavens. Stolen from the memories of The Plague, the Temple was planted in the howling Red Forest, whose winds eroded its smooth edges. It now stands as a beacon of fear, visible from all cardinal points.
