FEATURES

Survive With Friends (V1)

This initial implementation of Survive With Friends will allow for a group of survivors to be created and to matchmake into a ranked lobby together. It should be used in a similar fashion as the Kill Your Friends Mode:

  1. Have a survivor (host) created click Survive With Friends from the Main Menu
  2. As the host, invite other survivors to the lobby.
  3. Once the party is formed, have all players ready-up. This will triggered the matchmaking process and transition the party to an online lobby.

Note: After playing a game, the survivor group will be automatically disbanded and all members will be returned to their single player survivor lobby. We are working on maintaining the party between games, and you can expect this to come in a follow up patch.

Patch 1.0.5 - 4 August 2016

  • Fixed an issue which could cause Steam Stats & Achievements to get reset
  • Fixed an issue preventing the trapper from placing traps near sabotaged traps
  • Fixed an issue which could cause killer prestige weapons to flicker in game
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Saboteur perk to decrease sabotage speed when using a toolbox
  • Fixed an issue which could cause survivors to lose pips when the killer leaves the game (known issues with the Tally not properly displaying the pips & blood points status in such cases)
  • Fixed an issue which caused the perk "Whispers" to trigger when near dead or sacrificed survivors
  • Fixed an issue which could render a downed survivor unable to interact or be interacted with if a pickup interaction would fail


BALANCE CHANGES

  • Removed the ability for a survivor to disarm or sabotage traps while walking or running
  • Added a penalty to the wiggle build-up when a killer puts a survivor down

  • Bloodhound: Fresh blood marks can be for 2/3/4 seconds longer than normal (up from 1/2/3)

Our data indicates that Bloodhound is underpowered. In order to make this perk more viable, we have chosen to increase the duration of how long the blood marks are visible. With a longer blood trail, there are more chances you’ll pick up the scent and be able to start your hunt. We kept its powerful synergy with Sloppy Butcher in mind:

  • Sloppy Butcher: Increased the frequency of bleeding for tiers I and II. Decreased the frequency of bleeding for tier III.

We rebalanced the amount of blood spawned when affected by sloppy butcher. We feel the new balance is closer to the intended gameplay: being able to track a survivor. The injured survivor needs to use the environment to break the line of blood splatter using grass and other techniques to obscure their trail until they are healed (or killed). Overall this perk should be more a more viable option for killers’ loadouts at all levels. A good killer at this point should be able to follow the blood trail on most maps.

  • Brutal Strength: Increased barricade destruction speed bonus to 20%/30%/40% (up from 10%/20%/30%)

Brutal Strength is a good perk that is being picked, but not as often as the more popular perks. We have decided that a slight boost should allow for more dynamic play and enough of a boost to merit equipping this perk.

  • Insidious: Decreased time taken to become stealthy to 4/3/2 seconds (down from 6/4/3)

This is one of our favorite perks. However, in its current form, it can be too slow to use with the current pace of the game. The idle time required is often too high a price to pay, especially at level I. We have lowered time required to become stealthy for all tiers of the perk. Survivors, take your time to look around before you do you anything risky!

  • Iron Grasp: Fixed description and decreased wiggle reduction effect to 20%/40%/60% (down from 25%/50%/75%)

We want to add a bit more challenge for the killer when transporting a victim with Iron Grasp. As it currently stands (due mostly to sneaky sabotaging survivors!) we chose not to reduce the time required to struggle out. However, we did reduce the wiggle force reduction to allow survivors to fight back a bit better. We also updated the description of the struggle time effect to match the values that were already in-game.

  • No One Escapes Death: Added a time limit of 120 seconds and reduced movement speed bonus to 3%/4%/4% (down from 3%/5%/5%)

No One Escapes Death is probably one of the game’s most controversial perks, and certainly one of the most often picked. By adding a time limit to the perk, we’re encouraging killers to try a “berserker blitz” where they have to hunt and find survivors as fast as possible, rather than camp strategic points. The very slight movement speed decrease will help some survivors get away during these 2 terrifying minutes. With these changes in place, we believe that this perk will no longer be a “must-have” for every killer loadout, but still be a viable option.

  • Shadowborn: Reduced the field of view bonus for all tiers

This perk has was so strong that it was a no-brainer to always use it, especially given the rarity of flashlight experts out there. The FOV difference should still be high enough to be noticeable and give an advantage to those who use this perk, without being an automatic pick.

  • Spies from the Shadows: Increased odds to trigger the effect to 50%/50%/75% (up from 25%/50%/75%) and increased range to 16/24/36 meter (from 12/24/36)

We believe this perk is fine at tiers II and III but the first tier of this perk could use a boost. Increasing the chance that the crows give a visual cue and increasing the range should make this perk viable even at tier I.

Even though the numbers appear unchanged, they are now added to the base chance rather than acting as a multiplier on them. This will greatly increase the probability of skill checks being triggered when in the terror radius of the killer.

  • Changed "Iron Grasp" perk. In light of the Sabotage and hook repair implementations, we have changed Iron Grasp's values to their old values. Struggling is reduced by 25/50/75% changed from 20/40/60%. Time to struggle out of the killers grasp is increased by 4/8/12% instead of 15/27/36%. As noticed the numbers have been much higher for a while, this was due to Killers not having enough access to hooks on the map. The Auto Hook Repair mechanic should allow for smaller Iron Grasp numbers.

  • Changed Hex Totem cleanse scoring value from 800 - 1000
  • Changed Sabotage of Hooks to be 15 seconds instead of 20

  • Changed the "Hex: Devour Hope" perk at level 3. Removed the repair generator penalty given at 1 token and replaced it with a speed boost at 2 tokens. The reason we changed the bonus from the token gain was due to the fact that the repair penalty was a dead giveaway that the killer had Devour Hope.
  • Changed the "Hex: Thrill of the Hunt" perk. Removed condition that required a hook save for a token to be applied, instead tokens will be awarded for each remaining totem on the map. Additionally the killer will receive a notification when someone starts working on a hex totem.
  • Changed the "Lightborn" & "Shadowborn" perks. These perks have changed to match the 1.4 engine update lighting. Modified the recovery time to a constant 50% for Lightborn, light effectiveness has been reduced from 100% to 35% for both Lightborn and Shadowborn. Shadowborn gets you blinded at most 30% faster which is down from 50% and the time to recover from this condition was reduced from 75% to 50%.
  • Changed the "No One Escapes Death" perk (now called "Hex: No One Escapes Death"). We've modified NOED to be a Hex based perk instead of having a 2 minute timer starting once the gates are powered. The Hex will be applied once the exit gates are powered as long as there is a dull totem still intact. Survivors will have an option to destroy the totem or try and open the door to escape.
  • Changed the "Save the Best for Last" perk. Removed the flat successful and missed attack cooldowns from the perk and replaced them with a Successful attack cooldown that is triggered after chasing a survivor for 20 consecutive seconds.
  • Changed the audio cue used when the "Small Game" perk gets triggered
  • Changed the color of survivor auras in the effects of the perk "Bond". These auras were previously red, which generally indicates the survivor is in trouble. Changed the auras to yellow
  • Changed the progression bar color to make the visibility of the progression more noticeable (ie repairing, unhooking, healing, etc)
  • Decreased the penalty for failing a Sabotage action skill check from 25% to 10%. We believe the Sabotage fail skill check penalty was too extreme, we've reduced the fail skill check from 25% to 10% in addition to making the sabotage time for bear traps longer.
  • Increased Exit Gate opening time from 15 seconds to 20 seconds. We've increased Generator and Exit Gate unlocking times by a 10 and 5 respectively in order to add more time overall to matches.
  • Increased bear trap sabotage time from 8 to 16 seconds. We believe that sabotaging the Trappers traps/his power, was too easy, we've increased the time to sabotage as compensation.
  • Increased generator total repair time from 70 seconds to 80 seconds. We've increased Generator and Exit Gate unlocking times by a 10 and 5 respectively in order to add more time overall to matches.
  • Reduced the bear trap disarm time from 5 to 2.5 seconds. We've reduced the total time to disarm a trap, we believe that finding a trap should be the challenge, whereas once found disarming should be relatively fast.
  • Removed hook sabotage score event once gates are powered
  • Removed the ability for the Trapper to place bear traps under hooks. Traps under hooks have caused many issues for survivors trying to save their teammates and ended up with more frustration than fun. Traps can still be placed near the hook but there should always be enough room for the survivor to unhook their teammates without either survivor being trapped.
  • Removed the possibility for the "Chinese Firecracker" item to spawn in chests or in the bloodweb
  • Sabotaged hooks will now automatically repair after 180 seconds. This feature has been implemented to help combat the sabotage loop that results in slugging due to the killer having no hooks/ being too far from all the hooks.
  • Some Character custom Items rarity value have been modified
  • The "Adrenaline", "Balanced Landing" & "Sprint Burst" perks now use a shared cooldown for the activation of the speed boost (Exhausted Status Effect). Exhausted cooldown is paused while running. "Adrenaline" cause Exhausted Status Effect but is not impaired by the Status Effect.
  • Trapper and The Hag trap place times have been reduced by 2 seconds overall. There is an initial trap placement time which took 2 seconds, then the trap would be set for 2-3 seconds followed by an out animation which would take another 2 seconds. We've reduced the out and the in animation times to 1 second each which should help trappers and hags place their traps more dynamically/ in chases and perhaps allow killers to mind game by fake placing a trap.
  • Unhooking a Survivor with an Item underneath them has been made easier, unhooking has the priority. Picking up the item requires the Survivor to look directly at the item.

Patch 1.5.1b - 18 May 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Added support for a double bloodpoints weekend from May 19th to May 23rd


BALANCE

  • "Snap Out Of It" duration increased from 8 seconds to 12 seconds
  • All shock therapy zones have had their hitbox heights adjusted to better hit survivors at different elevations
  • Doctor add-on "Mouldy Electrode" charge speed penalty reduced to 10%
  • Doctor add-on "High Stimulus Electrode" charge speed penalty reduced to 30%
  • Doctor add-on "Order: Carter's Notes" special skill check chance increased to 100%
  • Doctor add-on "Order: Class I" special skill check chance increased to 25%
  • Doctor add-on "Order: Class II" special skill check chance increased to 50%
  • Doctor add-on "Polished Electrode" charge speed penalty reduced to 20%
  • Increased the default shock therapy attack range by 20%
  • Increased The Doctor's movement speed in Treatment Stance from 4.3 m/s to 4.4 m/s
  • Shared Hallucination aura color has been changed
  • Shared Hallucination auras are revealed to The Doctor in Madness III


BALANCE EXPLANATION

  • "Order" Add-on Special Skill Check Chance Increase: The chance of triggering this affliction was too small to make these add-ons an appealing choice. We have increased these numbers significantly in order to make its effects more noticeable and hopefully make it a more satisfying experience.
  • Changed Shared Hallucination Aura Color: The shared hallucination's aura colour was flashy, but not very fitting. It has been changed from "Notice Me!" Hot Pink to "I Indicate An Ally" Yellow.
  • Electrode Add-on Charge Time Penalty: We found the penalty to the charge time of Shock Therapy made these add-ons less fun to use so we have significantly decreased them. These add-ons should be more pleasant to use now!
  • Improving The Doctor's Base Kit: We have heard from players that The Doctor is too reliant on add-ons, and they would like to see improvements to his base abilities. We agree! Today's patch includes a change to the Shared Hallucination affliction to make its aura visible in Madness III by default to increase the incentive for driving survivors mad without relying on add-ons. Future updates to The Doctor will likely include new afflictions and changes to his base abilities.
  • Increase "Snap Out Of It" Charge Time: "Snap Out Of It" should feel like more than just a minor inconvenience. We have increased the time required by 4 seconds to give the killer more time to counter this action.
  • Movement Speed Increase in Treatment Stance: We have slightly increased The Doctor's movement speed in Treatment Stance to match that of The Hag. This change increases the consistency of movement speed across different killers, and gives the Doctor more mobility to land Shock Therapy attacks or patrol the level.
  • Shock Therapy Zone Adjustments: It seems very natural to chase a survivor and shock them as they run away. The default shock therapy zone was too small to do this reliably, so we have increased its range. Furthermore, it was very difficult to hit survivors on slopes or stairs; the hit detection zone has had its height adjusted to better handle these situations.


BUG FIXING

  • Fixed an issue with a locker in the hospital bathroom that could make it impossible for a killer to open while occupied by a survivor
  • Reworked Doctor texts to be clearer

Patch 1.5.1c - 31 May 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Added the ability for developers to change the active Matchmaking Systems (Steam to Dead by Daylight Services and the other way around).

  • Added the ability for the KYF Match Manager to toggle whether join permissions are limited to friends only or not.

    • Chance: Displays if the player has a better or worse chance at succeeding the performed action (only valid for actions that can fail, e.g. escaping a trap or a hook)
    • Efficiency: Displays if the player's Item Usage depletes slower or faster than usual
    • Progression Speed: Displays if the Action Progression Speed is slower or faster than usual
    • Skill Check Difficulty: Only displays after the first Skill check, and indicates if the Skill Check is easier or harder to succeed
    • Skill Check Probability: Only displays after the first Skill check, and indicates if Skill Checks happen more or less frequently than usual
  • Adjusted the color of the interaction bar when using perks, items or add-ons to properly reflect if there is a positive(yellow) or negative(red) speed effect
  • Adjusted the controller cursor speed and stickiness
  • Adjusted the font size of player steam names in the HUD. Font was reduced to compensate for names cutting off

  • Implemented a character info screen. This screen features each characters unique perks and their character biography
  • Implemented a new Help & Tutorials section
  • Implemented tooltips on the loading screen
  • Integrated additional status effects and modified some existing effects to use the new Proficiency system (see below). The current status effects are:
    • Blindness: Character’s vision is impaired.
    • Bloodlust: Killers gain bloodlust by maintaining a chase for at least 15 seconds. Bloodlust increases the Killer's movement speed
    • Cursed: The Survivor is suffering from a secret penalty due to a Hex Perk. Cleansing its Hex Totem will dispel the curse.
    • Endurance: The Survivor is hardened, and can resist a hit.
    • Exhausted: The Survivor cannot performs physically demanding feats of speed from perks such as Sprint Burst, Balanced Landing or Lithe.
    • Exposed: The Survivor is in peril and can be downed in one hit. (Will not show on chainsaw hit)

    • Hemorrhage: The Survivor gushes blood, making them easier to track.
    • Hindered: The character's movement speed is decreased.
    • Madness: The Survivor suffers various mental afflictions including hallucinations and uncontrollable screaming.
    • Mangled: The Survivor is heavily injured and requires more time to be fully healed.
  • The charge meter for items now changes colour when it is being positively or negatively affected. Red for negative affects (charge is depleted quickly) and yellow for positive affects (charge is depleted slowly)


BALANCE

  • Hex: Thrill of the Hunt Perk change: Changed values for blood points granted for hunting by 4%/6%/8% to 6%/8%/10%. Changed cleanse time from 4/7/10 to 4/5/6. The increased cleansing time was too high for what we wanted Thrill of the Hunt to do, we've reduced it to more manageable numbers.
  • Open-Handed perk change: Now affects teammates by increasing aura reading ranges by 4/6/8 meter range.
  • Quick & Quiet perk change: Added a cooldown every 30/25/20 seconds.
  • Removed Offerings which gives players addition Bloodpoints from the Kill Your Friends Inventory

ADDITIONAL CHANGES:

  • Update for Quick & Quiet, we didn't just add a cooldown to Quick and Quiet but rather we've added the much asked for Quiet aspect to our Quick and Quiet.
  • Quick and Quiet will now reduce audio and noise notification range by 100% instead of just noise notification range by 90%.
  • The cooldown was added as we felt like 100% Quick and Quiet is very strong even with a cooldown of 20 seconds.
  • Whispers change was made because we heard that it was too subtle for players. We tried something with the new audio, we'll see how you guys like it or not and gather that information and revise what we do with the audio!

Patch 1.5.3 - 4 July 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Feature - New Killer Win / Lose Condition: Prior to patch 1.5.3 Killer win conditions were determined through point gain: less than 7000 bloodpoints gained in a match resulted in losing 1 rank pip, 7000 to 9999 was considered a tie with no rank pips lost, 10,000 to 19,999 was considered a win granting 1 rank pip and finally 20,000 granted 2 rank pips. Unfortunately this did not satisfy most Killers as it does not directly reflect the amount of killing/hooking done in a match. As of patch 1.5.3 our Killer win/lose conditions change to reflect our Killers' visceral game play. Killers need to score Killer Goals to satisfy the entity.

For details: Victory Cube Changes

Patch 1.8.0 - 26 October 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Removed the Slightly and Moderately map offerings from Bloodwebs and from the Kill Your Friends offering inventory


BALANCE

  • Added the ability to unhook a survivor from all possible angles.
  • This is a step towards making the hook a happier place.
  • Adjusted Global Skill Check Chances, we believe they were currently a little too high when no item/perk was being used and we would like to encourage choice through items/perks and addons. As one of the first steps towards a *healthier balance we will be changing the following Skill Check Chances.
  • Heal Other Skill check Chance remains at 15%.
  • Heal Other with Medkit Skill Check Chance remains at 15%.
  • Heal Self with Medkit Skill Check Chance changed from 15% to 12.5%
  • Heal Self without medkit Skill check Chance changed from 15% to 10.5%
  • Repair with a toolkit Skill Check Chance has been changed from 8% to 10.5%
  • Repair without a toolkit Skill Check Chance has not changed, it remains at 8%.
  • Sabotage Hook with a toolkit Skill check Chance remains at 15%.
  • Sabotage Hook without a toolkit Skill Check Chance changed from 15% to 10.5%
  • Increased the time it takes to increase Bloodlust levels from 12 to 15 seconds. It has been brought to our attention that Bloodlust is currently triggering every 12 seconds. This is an error as Bloodlust is intended to trigger every 15 seconds. It is unclear when this issue occurred, Bloodlust should be triggering every 15 seconds as this should give an opportunity for survivors to lose the killer before they reach their next Bloodlust level. Bloodlust is intended to be an option for killers to use and it is not intended to be the answer to all situations.
  • Increased wiggle penalty for dropping a survivor from 25% to 33%. The initial intent was to cause killers to drop survivors after dropping them 4 times in a row. Due to recovery rates killers had 5 drops before the survivor was freed. This change should cause survivors to be freed after being dropped 3 times in a row when dropped in quick succession
  • Reduced "Good" healing skill check success reward from 1% to 0%. Good skillchecks are meant to continue progress as the skillcheck was not failed, Good skillchecks were not meant to advance progress.
  • Reduced the audio levels of The Wraiths growls while cloaked from the survivors standpoint
  • Removed some parts of the railing on the second floor of the Foundry in MacMillan Estate


BUG FIXING

  • Fixed an issue that caused items, perks, add-ons, powers, and offerings to have the incorrect inventory type text on the scoreboard

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Killer to become stuck in the boxes on the porch of the Strode house in Haddonfield when performing a window vault interrupt

  • Fixed an issue that caused the smoke VFX from the Nurse's Sally of the Lantern cusotmization to remain visible when looking downwards
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a hooked survivor to become broken for the rest of the match if a survivor got disconnected while unhooking them
  • Fixed an issue that could cause bear traps to float when placed in certain areas in the Grim Pantry map

  • Balance: Generator breaking time reduced to 2 seconds from 3 seconds

Patch 1.8.0b - 2 November 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Added additional analytics support
  • Integrated Simplified Chinese localization for The Nightmare on Elm Street chapter

Patch 1.8.1 - 9 November 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Content - Added new VFX when failing a generator skill check to wake up
  • Feature - Added a status effect on the portrait of a Survivor who is asleep
  • Feature - Added dissolve VFX on the Nightmare when a survivor is transitioning to the Dream State
  • Feature - Removed the in and out of Dream World transition when The Nightmare performs his memento mori kill. Now survivors who are being killed by the Nightmare will always be in the Dream State


BALANCE

  • A bug fix where we made the 0.3 seconds of the attack always play has made all lunges feel longer. In fact we are playing the full attack phase animation allowing the killer too fully swing before playing the blade wipe animation. We have made a tweak this patch where this is not true for the obstruction hit. An obstruction as soon as it is registered will go into the obstruction hit cooldown.
  • Changed the medkit add-ons Needle & Thread and Surgical Suture to have an additive increased skill check chances instead of a multiplicative one. Changed the Surgical Suture Skillcheck chance, increased it from Slightly(3%) to Moderately(5%). English only
  • Increased The Nightmare's terror radius from 16 to 24 meters. Increasing the Terror radius allows for survivors to have more room to maneuver around Freddy without having their aura seen. We've matched the Terror Radius and Lullaby to keep The Nightmare's presence consistent at a base.
  • Increased The Nightmares slowdown when successfully putting someone to sleep from 1 to 3 seconds. The slowdown will be more present and give survivors a slight window to put distance between themselves and Freddy before they are asleep.
  • Nightmare's Red Paint Brush add-on reduces terror radius by 16 meters instead of 8 meters, this is an adjustment since we increased the terror radius to 24 meters as a base for Freddy.
  • Removed the ability to wake up a survivor in crawl state. Now when healed to the injured state they will automatically be woken up. Also applicable when using the Unbreakable perk
  • Survivors with the Adrenaline perk at all Tiers will automatically be woken up from the Dream State when Adrenaline triggers. Adrenaline tiers 1 and 2 gain the ability to heal from dying as well as Tier 1 gains a 5 second sprint on activation. Updated description in English only
  • The Nightmare will now appear twice briefly during the Dream Transition instead of being visible throughout the Dream Transition. This change should help Freddy players to confuse their targets and encourage a disengage and surprise strategy.
  • Tweaked the Dream State VFX when a survivor is being pulled out of a locker when awake. Now the survivor is put to sleep at the beginning of the interaction rather than at the end


BUG FIXING

  • Adjusted the brightness when in the Dream State in the Treatment Theatre map

  • Fixed an issue that sometimes made it impossible for the Hillbilly and the Cannibal to use the chainsaw sprint in the main entrance of the Smokehouse
  • Fixed an issue where achievements tied to leveling up appeared in Steam after closing and restarting the game
  • Fixed an issue where the attack detection phase would be skipped as soon as a target is found. This affects the lunge, and makes it so that the full attack animation 0.3 seconds is played each time you swing, after the attack phase the character will go into the blade wipe, obstruction hit, or miss swing animation. This was done in the Nightmare DLC release. We have now adjusted the obstruction hit to not completely play, please see balance change for more details.
  • Updated the descriptions for all the Medkit items to reflect the healing speed is increased while healing others. English only

Patch 1.8.1a - 14 November 2017

BUG FIXING
  • Fixed an issue causing players to disconnect from the server while transitioning to a lobby through a Survive With Friends group

Patch 1.8.1b - 17 November 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Content - Integrated an exclusive customization for David King (torso) for the GStar Event

Patch 1.8.2 - 20 November 2017

FEATURES & CONTENT
  • Content - Removed the Halloween themed lobby and menu music
  • Feature - Improved the speed of Bloodweb animations to make the Bloodweb more responsive and easier to use
  • Feature - Removed pop-up when purchasing an element of the Bloodweb, except when showing the content of a Mystery Box


BALANCE

  • Adjusted the rate at which the Mystery Boxes can spawn in the Bloodweb. Previously the Mystery Boxes spawned at every level, now it will spawn at levels 3, 5, then every 5 levels.
  • Adjusted the speed curve while channeling The Nightmare's ability: He now moves at 95% speed for the duration of channeling. The movement penalty applied when continually casting the Nightmare's ability was quite intense, we have added a slight reduction to the Nightmare's movement speed when using his ability continually.
  • Changed the overall balancing of the Bloodweb to have a better repartition of items and rarities. We wanted to make the progression in the Bloodweb more rewarding and satisfying when reaching the higher levels
  • Changed the prices of all Bloodweb elements to be based on Rarity instead of position. Price based on position created variance and inconsistency in the value of the rewards. We want players to be able to make choices on what to invest in based on consistent rules.
  • Fixed the interaction & attack block during The Nightmare's power success animation. 0.5 seconds after successfully casting his ability the Nightmare can now attack or interact.
  • Raised the Rarity of Bloody Party Streamers to Rare (previously Common). Bloody Party Streamers used to be Common for the event they were part of, but leaving them as part of the normal game required to raise their Rarity to appropriately reflect their impact.
  • Removed Tiers 2 and 3 of all Daily Rituals and reworked the values to reach for Tiers 1. We want the Daily Ritual to be short, easy to achieve objectives that you can complete every day.
  • Removed the possibility for all Moonlight Offerings to spawn in the Bloodweb. The usage of these Offerings could have a lot of impact on the lighting of each map. We needed more control over the exact lighting we decide to set in each map in order to ensure a good experience, and these offerings were making this harder.
  • Removed the possibility for the "Will O' Wisp" flashlight and "All Hallows' Eve Lunchbox" medkit items to spawn in chests and in the Bloodweb
  • Several changes to to the Rarity of Add-Ons and Offerings :
  • Based on the new pricing rules of the Bloodweb, we felt that these items values were superior to what their Rarity suggested.
  • The add-ons Garden Rake, Prototype Claws and Paint Thinner now reduce the speed penalty during the 3 second slowdown after The Nightmare triggers the dream transition on a survivor. Prior to this update, these aforementioned add-ons were reducing the speed penalty while you continually casted. Now these add-ons will strictly be reducing the slowdown after successfully putting a survivor to sleep.

  • Fixed an issue with the textures on the Shape and the Nurse in the front end and in game
  • Tentatively fixed an issue that could occasionally cause no outdoor hooks to spawn in the MacMillan Estate maps. Due to the nature of this issue, it was difficult to reproduce and we will be tracking the status of the issue after this patch to confirm.
  • Tweaked the Flashlight blinding effects on the Nightmare. Was causing slight VFX corruption

Patch 1.8.2a - 22 November 2017

BUG FIXING

BALANCE

Wraith Changes

  • Changed the Wraith's Wailing Bell ringing audio to play up to 24 meters instead of map wide. Survivors, if you hear the bell it means that the Wraith is already decloaking near you!
  • Changed the Wraith's cloaking "woosh" sound to 40 meters, instead of infinite. Add-ons that reduced the Wraith's Wailing Bell audio range have been re-purposed for reducing the Cloaking woosh sound. Survivors, if you hear the woosh, the Wraith is near, but you are not in as much danger as when you hear the bell ringing!
  • Changed the blood pools and VFX from an injured Survivor to be brighter when The Wraith is cloaked. The blood color returns to normal when uncloaked.
  • Cloaking is now faster. Changed speed curve to be 100% of movement speed for 95% of the curve at which it increases to 110% of the Wraith's 4.6 movement speed. (5.06m/s). This should encourage cloaking during chases, we felt that it was rather penalizing to have a cloak reduced movement speed + a uncloak reduced movement speed.
  • Delay uncloaking sound by 1.5 seconds. (50% of the animation). Wraith's, use this delay of audio to try and surprise survivors. Survivors, actively look for the Wraith's shimmer while he is cloaked to make the most out of his decloak time/speed.
  • Increased the time it takes to Burn the Wraith out of invisibility with a flashlight from 1 second to 1.5
  • Increased uncloaking movement speed and adjusted the uncloak movement speed curve to feel smoother and give less ground to survivors. The decloak gave a lot of room for survivors to put distance between themselves and the Wraith, with these changes Survivors should be actively looking for the wraith shimmer to get a head start.
  • Interacting with a locker while cloaked should force the Wraith out of cloak if he finds a survivor. If he doesn't find anyone he should stay cloaked.
  • Odd Bulb has an adjusted consumption rate, from moderately (24%) to slightly (12%) increased consumption rate.
  • Reduced invisibility Burnout time when a survivor flashlights a cloaked Wraith from 4 seconds to 3
  • Removed the quicker blind and burn modifiers from the increased flashlight beam effects against the killer, and from increased the power of the flashlight beam add-ons and items as well as simplified the text to reflect these changes(Utility Flashlight, Focus Lens, High-end Sapphire Lens, Power Bulb, Intense Halogen, Odd Bulb and TIR Optic)
  • The Wraith can now damage generators and destroy pallets when cloaked. Doing this will force the Wraith out of invisibility during the animation, and the terror radius will play at full and then fade the Wraith back into invisibility.

Perk Changes

  • Bloodhound: Increased Tiers I and II so that all Tiers use the same blood intensity.
  • Shadowborn: Negative effects have been removed, FOV increased to 9/12/15 from 3/5/10.

Add-on Changes

  • All Wraith's Common add-ons are now "Soot" add-ons
  • All Wraith's Rare add-ons are now "White" add-ons
  • All Wraith's Ultra Rare add-ons are now "Spirit" add-ons
  • All Wraith's Uncommon add-ons are now "Mud" add-ons
  • All Wraith's Very Rare add-ons are now "Blood" add-ons

Add-on Rarity Changes

  • Adjusted the "Blink" add-ons that reduce The Wraiths disappearance charge time to 12.5/50%
  • Adjusted the White and Blood "Windstorm" add-ons for The Wraith's reappearance time to 10/15%.Adjusting the uncloak movement curve, we've made it so The Wraith exits the uncloak at max speed instead of having to accelerate to max speed after the uncloak. This effectively maximizes the Windstorm add-ons efficiency, in compensation we have increased the time it takes to uncloak.
  • Adjusted the range at which the Wraith's Wailing Bell can be heard with the "Coxcombed Clapper" add-on to 40%
  • Adjusted the time it takes for The Wraith to uncloak with the "Swift Hunt" add-ons to 10/15/20%
  • Changed the name of the "Ghost" Soot add-on to "Ghost" White to better fit it's rarity
  • Increased the aura reading range by 2 meters on the "All Seeing" add-ons. These are affected by other aura reading perks.

Map Changes

  • Moved the generator in the foundry in the Ironworks of Misery map
  • Re-integrated the adjusted pallet location next to the foundry window in the Ironworks of Misery map
  • Re-integrated the assets outside of the window on the bottom floor of the foundry in the Ironworks of Misery map

Bloodweb Changes

  • Mystery Box (Winter Gift) can never contain an Item below the box's Rarity
  • Mystery Box (Winter Gift) prices are half of the box rarity's
  • Reworked the spawn pattern of Mystery Box (Winter Gift) to be 1 at all Levels, and 2 every 5 Levels (except 50)

BALANCE

  • BloodWeb Changes
    • Changed the half price cost of the Mystery Box back to the original values
    • Readjusted drop rates of items from level 25 to 50
    • The mystery boxes appearance rate is back at what it was prior to the Winter Event.
  • Design Changes
    • Blindness status effect now blocks auras of hooked and downed survivors. (This includes Hex: The Third Seal and Huntress Add-ons)
    • NURSE: After blinking, the Nurse used to have a special attack with different speed values and detection zones. This has been removed. The Nurse will now have a regular lunge after blinking.
    • NURSE: Duration of the blink now depends on the how long the player charged the blink for, rather than the distance traveled during the blink. The time required to fully charge a blink (2 seconds), the maximum distance traveled (20 meters) and the time required to cover that distance (1.5 seconds) remain unchanged.
    • NURSE: Lunge speed has been adjusted: She will now accelerate to a maximum speed of 6.9 m/s during the lunge, like other killers. Previously, her regular (non-blink) attack was slower than other killers due to her reduced movement speed.
    • NURSE: Reappearance time is now much shorter and should be occurring as she blinks, this should remove the feeling that her collision is in place before she is visible, and allow for visual feedback in order to play against The Nurse.
    • NURSE: We've updated how much time it takes to blink and linked this timing to how long The Nurse Blinks. Due to the Blink mechanic improvement, Nurse's are now able to short blink instead of being forced to blink in relation to how long they have charged. Coupling the charge time for how long the nurse will take to displace herself will allows for survivors to always have a similar visual queue and timing to give them time to try and dodge The Nurse.
    • NURSE: We've updated how we calculate where the Nurse Blinks, this change allows the Nurse to blink upwards and downwards with more accuracy. This change has also enabled the Nurse to vary how far she Blinks, allowing her to blink closer when previously she would have committed to the distance she had charged. This will significantly improve the Nurse's ability to Blink. The following points will address the additional balance changes that should counter balance the improved Blink.
    • SCRATCH MARKS: We've adjusted how Scratch Marks are displayed, they should no longer be; showing up on a floor above a survivor and showing up on walls that are opposite of a survivor running. They will still show up under floors when a survivor is running above it.
    • Save The Best for Last's text and functionality has been updated. The successful attack cooldown will not be lost when changing targets during a chase, and will continue to be active as long as a chase is held for more than 20 seconds.
  • Map Changes
    • Added logic that limits the number of generic pallets that can spawn inside the Badham Preschool map to 3. Made the outside pallets procedural.
    • Changed the minimum and maximum number of procedural pallets that can spawn. Global change.
    • Fixed an exploit on the harvester object in the farm theme.
    • Implemented a new pallet management system that allows us to tweak the minimum and maximum number of procedural pallets that can spawn per map.
    • Increased the minimum spawning distance between procedural pallets from 8m to 10m. Global change.
    • Reduced the number of pallets that can spawn on the edges of the Backwater Swamp maps.

Patch 1.9.1 - 1 February 2018

BALANCE

BALANCE

DEV MESSAGE

Our first tests on the PTB with the hatch close mechanic have proved quite promising. We received a lot of varying feedback on the mechanic, and we believe the overall feeling is that the hatch close mechanic in itself solves the hatch standoff, but also comes with it's own set of frustration and issues. One of those issues in particular is a survivor who would be left in the match to complete at minimum 3 generators, in a one survivor versus one killer scenario, we feel like completing generators may be detracting from the main component of the game, the chase.

For the next iteration, when the killer chooses to close the hatch, we will complete all remaining generators, powering the exit gates. All end game perks will activate (ie: No One Escapes Death, Remember Me, Adrenaline, etc). The exit gates will NOT open automatically, and will still need to be interacted with by the survivor for 16 seconds in order to open the gate.

This is not the final version of the hatch close/ end game mechanic. This mechanic needs to work well with emblems, granting the proper gatekeeper score to killers, adding a scoring event for closing the hatch, in addition to new hatch close text to indicate that the killer is triggering the end game + a series of other changes.

This is a test to see if players enjoy this game play and to see what we can do to continue to improve the experience for everyone. The Hatch Close interaction is meant for testing and gathering feedback for the duration of the PTB and will be removed for the 2.0.0 update.

PALLETS

  • Pallet Interaction & Stun Zone changes
    • Adjusted the dimensions of the pallet stun hitbox. The hitbox was larger on one side than the other and encompassed both the standing pallet and the fallen pallet. It has been reduced to only encompass the fallen pallet.
    • Removed the ability to drop a pallet and rapidly cross the zone, what is often referred to as the pallet vacuum. With this change, a survivor will always stay on the same side of the pallet when triggering the interaction.
    • The way survivors drop pallets has changed, the interaction is now input based rather than velocity/ direction based. If you want to drop a pallet from a standstill, you simply need to be on the side of the pallet that you would like to stay after dropping the pallet, and press the drop pallet interaction key. If you would like to drop the pallet on the opposite side of you, as there is no longer a vacuum to take you from one side to the other, you must run through the pallet and press the drop pallet interaction key when you are on the other side of the pallet. *We are looking into fixing an issue where you cannot drop the pallet if you are holding the rush key (SHIFT key on PC) while dropping the pallet.

Patch 2.4.0 (PTB) - 27 November 2018

NEW MAP: THE ORMOND SLOPES RESORT

Welcome to Ormond, Alberta. Surrounded by an impressive mountain range, The Ormond Slopes Resort now lies derelict. The resort fell into disuse. Ormond’s resort was abandoned to decay, and then became a hideout for gangs of teenagers looking for trouble. Some people say it hid a darkness, a bottomless hole from where no one could return.


NEW KILLER: THE LEGION

When teenagers get involved with an impulsive mastermind, they discover an addictive kind of freedom. Together, they spiral out of control and become the wrong kind of crowd. Players will choose to embody one of the agile teenagers able to catch Survivors off-guard with their power, Feral Frenzy.


THE LEGION’S POWER IS:

  • Feral Frenzy. When active, The Legion can move at a faster rate, vault pallets, and missed attacks have a shorter cooldown. Successful attacks made during the Frenzy apply a new status effect – DEEP WOUND – and reset the power’s duration, allowing The Legion to chain their attacks to multiple Survivors.


THE LEGION COMES WITH 3 PERKS:

  • Discordance: Any time 2 or more survivors are working on the same Generator; the Generator's aura is highlighted for a short duration.
  • Mad Grit: While carrying a Survivor, you suffer no cooldown for missed attacks, and hitting another Survivor will pause the carried Survivor’s wiggle timer for a moment.
  • Iron Maiden: You open lockers faster. Additionally, when a Survivor exits a locker, their location is revealed, and they suffer from the Exposed status effect for a while.


NEW SURVIVOR: JEFF JOHANSEN

  • Jeff is an artist with a heart of gold. One morning, he got a phone call from Ormond, Alberta. Home. Jeff revisited the home he left behind, but he should never have looked back.


JEFF JOHANSEN COMES WITH 3 PERKS:

  • Breakdown: Any time you are removed from a hook (escaped or saved), the hook breaks and the Killer's aura is shown to you.
  • Aftercare: A 2-way link is created between yourself and other Survivors when you cooperate. When you heal or rescue someone, or when someone heals or rescues you, a link is created, allowing you to see each other’s auras across the entire map.
  • Distortion: You start the Trial with 3 tokens. When your aura would be shown to the killer, the perk activates, and a token is consumed. For a short period, your aura will not be shown to the Killer and you leave no scratch marks.


DEV NOTES

PTB INFORMATION

Your personal profile (save data, inventory, currencies) has been copied from the Live servers to the PTB servers at 8:15UTC on November 26th. Any progress or purchases made on the Live servers after this date will not be reflected on the PTB. All progress made during the PTB will not be transferred over to the Live servers. You can leave feedback of your experience here: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/categories/ptb-feedback


UNREAL ENGINE UPDATE

The updated engine has added support for many new features (especially in Audio & Rendering), but also caused some incompatibility with existing features the game relied on. As such, we have re-balanced a few very important components of the game (lighting, fog, sound & occlusion):

  • Added support for more realistic volumetric fog in all exterior maps.
  • Adjusted audio balance and occlusion levels across all maps.
  • Adjusted lighting across all themes and maps, quality settings (PC Only), as well as Killer specific lighting conditions (The Nightmare's dream world, etc).


NEW MATCHMAKING SYSTEM

We will be testing a new matchmaking system during the Chapter X PTB. For more info about the nature of this new matchmaking system and when it will roll out on the live environment, please consult this post.


DEEP WOUND STATUS

With our latest chapter, Darkness Among Us, we are introducing a new status effect to the world of Dead by Daylight: Deep Wound. You may already be familiar with the effect if you have ever been on the receiving end of a Borrowed Time save. The perk, Borrowed Time, has now been updated to reflect this new status effect.

Deep Wound indicates that a Survivor has been afflicted with a devastating internal injury and has a limited amount of time in which to be mended before being put into the dying state.

Survivors now have the ability to mend themselves, or others, without requiring a med-kit. Just find a safe place to stop running and spend a bit of time repairing those internal injuries. The Deep Wound timer now pauses while the Survivor is in a chase and The Killer is shown a location indicator if the Survivor goes down because of Deep Wound.

For these reasons, Borrowed Time’s bleed-out timer has been reduced to 10/15/20 seconds (previously 15/20/25 seconds) before putting the afflicted Survivor into dying state.

The portrait icon in the bottom-left of the screen indicates the amount of time the Survivor has before they go down. The screen effects while in Deep Wound have also been modified from the desaturated look of the original Borrowed Time to now incorporate more blood to make it very clear that you are still in peril.


FEATURES & CONTENT

  • Feature - Added a new status effect for Survivors: Deep Wound. Survivors afflicted with the Deep Wound status effect need to mend before being able to heal themselves, or be healed by others. Survivors can mend each other.
  • Feature - Added the theme, map and tile information in the Pause menu. This feature is to better help our players and the Dev team when reporting map specific issues. Please be sure to include that information when reporting any map issues.
  • Feature - Integrated an updated version of the Unreal Engine (4.20, from 4.13).
  • Feature - Map Scheduler: Added a server configuration to allow control of map frequency during Online Ranked matches. This will allow us to add or remove emphasis on certain maps or themes during specific periods. Map selection offerings will still normally take precedence over these.
  • Feature - Opening the Store from the offline lobbies will redirect the user to the currently selected character's catalog page.


BALANCE

UI UPDATES

  • Updated layout for the character information screen. Killer information screens now show basic stats (Max Base Speed, Base Terror Radius, and Height).


SURVIVOR PERKS

  • Borrowed Time: Unhooked Survivors are now affected by the Deep Wound Status effect. Changed the Bleedout timer from 15/20/25 seconds to 10/15/20 seconds. VFX have been updated. Please see the dev message: "Deep Wound" for more details.

This distance will ultimately be ignored in the case where the minimum number of hooks requirements are not fulfilled. The effect of each offering is as such: Moldy Oak (Uncommon) = -1.5m, Rotten Oak (Rare)= -2.5m, Putrid Oak (Very Rare) = -3.5m, Petrified Oak (Survivor Very Rare) = +1m.
  • Reduced basement to hook minimum distance to 16 meters.

The Game: Added a few extra signs to help players navigate to the stairs.

  • Leader: All action speeds, with the exception of repair speed, are increased to 15%/20%/25% instead of 3%/6%/9%. The effect now persists for 15 seconds after the perk owner is out of range. Only one Leader effect at a time.
  • Prove Thyself: For every other Survivor working on a generator within a 4m range, gain 10% repair speed bonus. This same bonus is also applied to all other Survivors within range. Gain 50%/75%/100% more Bloodpoints for coop actions. Only one Prove Thyself effect at a time.
  • Technician: All tiers reduce audible repair sounds by a distance of 8 meters, up from 0/-4/-8.


UI UPDATES

  • Hidden Killer Loadout: Removed the ability for Survivors to view the Killers perks, add-ons and offerings in the tally screen during an on-going match. Killer information will be revealed once all Survivors have exited the match.
  • Item Interaction: Items found in chests without already holding an item now require being picked up. This makes the interaction consistent with when you have an item already in hand and allows you to see what you have found before you commit to picking it up.
  • Mori Icon: If The Killer has played a mori offering, the offering's icon will be displayed in the in-game HUD when the conditions are valid and they are standing over a downed Survivor.


MISCELLANEOUS

  • Adjusted the Vault mechanic so that survivors come out of the vault with momentum, instead of being set to 0 movement speed after a vault.
  • After seeing the positive reaction to higher rarity items being looted from chests during the Winter Solstice, we've updated chest drop rates to support this after the event ends.
  • Changed the Medium Vault speed to last 0.9 seconds down from 1 second.
  • Created a new Medium Vault animation to distinguish the medium from the slow and fast vaults.
  • Renamed the "Hooked" scoring event to "Caught!" and the "Hook" scoring event to "Hooked". Fixed an issue that made it impossible to gain progress on coop Daily Rituals (The Initiation).

BALANCE

  • Audio adjustments:
    • Decreased the distance at which you can hear Survivors breathing and grunting while they are hiding in lockers.
    • Adjusted the basement occlusion audio balance. This will make sounds coming from the basement to be attenuated or muted in most circumstances.
    • Added / Adjusted audio occlusion for buildings with multiple floors.
  • Emblem changes:
    • Chaser Scoring: The proximity penalty has been increased. The longer a Killer stays within a close proximity (16m) to a hooked Survivor, the more points they will lose in the Chaser emblem.
    • Devout Scoring: The scoring thresholds have been modified. 3 kills now also result in a Silver emblem, whereas 4 kills results in Gold. To earn an Iridescent Devout emblem, you need to perform 10 or more hook events and sacrifice all 4 Survivors.
    • Gatekeeper Scoring: The scoring formula has been adjusted completely. Killers earn incremental points based on how few generators have been completed, each minute for the first nine minutes of the match - regardless of how long the match takes. The longer the gens are not completed, the more points they are worth. At the end of the match, the Killer also gains bonus points based on how few generators have been completed. Note: If the match is over before nine minutes is up, they receive points for the remaining minutes (up to nine) based on how few generators had been completed at the end of the match.

Patch 3.2.1 - 23 September 2019

BALANCE
  • The Demogorgon's Shred special ability now breaks pallets by default. Because of this change, we have re-worked the Red Moss add-on. Please see the changes below.
  • Reworked The Demogorgon's Red Moss add-on: Previously, with the Red Moss add-on, The Demogorgon could break pallets using Shred - now this is a default effect of Shred. The new Red Moss add-on reads as follows: Tremendously increases the duration of the Undetectable status effect applied to The Demogorgon when emerging from a portal (for a total of 10 seconds). Tremendously decreases power recovery speed of traversing the Upside Down (recovery now takes 24 seconds).
  • The perk Surge now grants the Destruction score event for each affected generator.
  • The perk Second Wind will now display the progress towards activating the perk.
  • Adjusted the matchmaking logic so that Survive With Friends groups are matched using the highest rank of all players in the group (instead of the average). The 3.2.0 patch introduced an issue that caused Survive With Friends group matchmaking to be skewed towards Rank 20, which is also fixed with this change.
