Dead By Daylight Roots of Dread coming June 2022

And is in the PTB now!

Dead by Daylight Roots of Dread is the asymmetrical horror title’s next chapter, due 7 June on all platforms.

The content, now available on the game’s PTB server, introduces new survivor Haddie Kaur and killer The Dredge. The chapter also adds a new map called Garden of Joy.

Thanks to the PTB, we know a bunch about both new characters, as follows:

Dead by Daylight killer The Dredge

  • New Perk: Dissolution
  • 3 seconds after injuring a survivor by any means, Dissolution activates for 12/16/20 second(s). While Dissolution is active, if a survivor fast vaults over a pallet inside of your Terror Radius, the Entity will break the pallet at the end of the vault, and Dissolution deactivates.
  • New Perk: Darkness Revealed
  • When you open a locker, the auras of all Survivors within 8 meters of any lockers are revealed to you for 3/4/5seconds. This perk has a 30seconds cooldown.
  • New Perk: Septic Touch
  • Whenever a Survivor performs the healing action within your Terror Radius, they suffer from Blindness and Exhaustion. These effects linger for 6/8/10 seconds after a healing action is interrupted by any means.

Dead by Daylight survivor Haddie Kaur

  • New Perk: Inner Focus
  • You can see other Survivors’ Scratch Marks within a 32 meters range of you. Whenever another Survivor loses a health state within a 32 meters range of you, the Killer’s aura is revealed to you for3/4/5 seconds.
  • New Perk: Residual Manifest
  • After a successful Killer Blind action, the Killer is affected by the Blindness status effect for 20/25/30 seconds. This perk grants the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per Trial and will guarantee a basic Flashlight.
  • New Perk: Overzealous
  • After cleansing any totem, this perk activates. Your generator repair speed is increased by 4%/5%/6%. This Perk deactivates when you lose a health state by any means.

In other Dead by Daylight news, a second Resident Evil chapter is coming alongside Hooked On You, a dating sim. Yeah — you read that last bit right.
