Dead by Daylight Patch Notes: New Survivor and Killer in Shattered Bloodlines DLC Update

Dead by Daylight received a console update and PC patch along with a new survivor and new killer today. This coincides with the launch of the new DLC for the game, Shattered Bloodlines. This brings the game up to version 2.2.0, and alongside new content, the patch adds a host of quality of life and bug fixes. Read on below for more information on the new survivor and killer in Dead by Daylight, and update 2.2.0 patch notes.

Dead by Daylight Update 2.2.0: New Survivor

For those that purchase the Shattered Bloodlines DLC, you’ll get the chance to play a new survivor in Dead by Daylight. Adam Francis comes with three new survivor perks that will help you combat the killer in your quest to escape the map.

Dead by Daylight New Survivor Perks

The survivor perks added in update 2.2.0 are:

  • Autodidact: When starting a trial you’ll get a -20% progression penalty for skill checks to heal others. For each successful heal, you’ll get a token (which max out at three). When used, these tokens will then give you a +20% bonus progression for a successful heal skill check. Great skill checks are not available when using Autodidact, and the perk does not affect the use of Med Kits.
  • Deliverance: Once you perform one safe hook rescue on another player Deliverance will activate. This perk boosts your chance to unhook yourself to 100%. After executing Deliverance, the user will be affected by the Broken status effect for 100 seconds.
  • Diversion: You can activate this by standing within the Killer’s terror radius while not in a chase for 45 seconds. Once the perk activates, you can use the Active Ability button while standing still and crouched to throw a pebble. This will cause a loud noise notification for the Killer allowing you to slip away while they’re investigating it. This perk can be used once before you have to recharge it.

Dead by Daylight Update 2.2.0: New Killer – The Spirit

The Spirit, like her name suggests, has powers that center around the spirit realm. The Spirit comes with three new perks as well.

Dead by Daylight New Killer Perks

You can use the following three killer perks as of Dead by Daylight update 2.20 as long as you have the Shattered Bloodlines DLC.

  • Hex: Haunted Ground: When this perk is active, two trapped Hex Totems will spawn. When one is cleansed, all survivors will be stricken with the Exposed status effect for 40 seconds. However, the remaining Hex Totem will then become a Dull Totem.
  • Rancor: When Rancor is active your killer becomes obsessed with a single survivor. Each time a generator is repaired, your obsession will see your aura for five seconds. However, you’ll get to see the auras of all survivors after a generator comes on-line for three seconds. Once all generators in a level are repaired, your obsession is stricken with the Exposed status effect, and you can kill them.
  • Spirit Fury: After breaking four pallets, The Entity will break the fifth one immediately. However, you’ll still be stunned as usual.
