  • Right-click Dead By Daylight in your Steam library 
  • Select “Properties” 
  • Head into “Betas”, then select Public Test Build from the list 

Unfortunately, public test builds are not available to sample on PlayStation or Xbox consoles, and they are also not available on the Epic Games store.
