Dead By Daylight remains one of the best multiplayer games thanks to its dream collaborations. Last year was special for the community, and here’s hoping 2024 will be just as good. While Chapter 31 will come out in March, before then we are getting treated to the mid-chapter 30.5. Here is the DBD Chapter 30.5 release date and time countdown for when new survivor Alan Wake will come out

Chapter 30 is the latest episode of Dead By Daylight. It introduced Chucky as a killer along with the unique distinction of a third-person POV. No new killers or survivors have been announced beyond January, but there is hope that there will be a second collaboration with Stranger Things especially since Stranger Things came back to Dead By Daylight in 2023.

We hope the year will be full of great original and licensed killers. While killers will arrive throughout the year, new survivor Alan Wake is inbound for DBD Chapter 30.5.
