Dead By Daylight fans have had a terrific year so far. All of the newly released chapters have been great and soon we will be anticipating the arrival of Chapter 32. But, before then, we are set to receive Tome 19. Here you will find the DBD Tome 19 release date and time countdown so you know when it will come out along with the update 7.7.0 patch notes for Dead By Daylight.

We are currently in the middle of Dead By Daylight Chapter 31. This has introduced new survivor Sable Ward as well as arguably BeHaviour Interactive’s scariest original killer, The Unknown. Soon we will move onto 31.5, and then we will move onto Chapter 32 with leaks for the rest of the year pointing to a potential crossover with CastleVania involving Dracula along with Vecna from Dungeons and Dragons.

While we cannot wait to see the next killer and survivor for the inevitable Chapter 32, we still have a couple of months to wait before then. Fortunately, to give the community something nearer to anticipate, the release date and time countdown for when DBD Tome 19, Splendor, will come out is nearly over.

Dead By Daylight update 7.7.0 patch notes

Below are the Dead By Daylight 7.7.0 patch notes as highlight in the DBD April developer update:

The Twins:

  • [REVERTED] Victor no longer latches onto Survivors who are put into the dying state.
  • [REVERTED] Victor once again latches onto Survivors who are injured by his pounce.
  • [REVERTED] Charlotte no longer gains Haste when Victor is latched onto a Survivor.

Dev note: We have received a lot of comments about The Twins’ strength during the PTB. We have made the decision to revert the changes to Victor’s pounce and keep the various quality of life improvements (faster switching between Charlotte and Victor, ability to recall Victor, and Add-on adjustments & base kit inclusion). We may revisit The Twins in a future update, if necessary, but these smaller tweaks will make The Twins feel better to play for the time being.

The Blight:

  • [CHANGED] Summoning Stone Addon – this will increase the initial rush duration by 0.5s (was 1s)
  • [CHANGED] Soul Chemical Addon – this increases the initial Rush speed by 5% down from 10% on the PTB

Dev note: Feedback around The Blight often centered on the two addons and his improved collision detection. We made some adjustments to the addons to slightly lower their strength whilst still maintaining their usefulness. The Blight’s collision detection will remain as it was on the PTB, and we will continue with our ongoing efforts to improve this collision across all maps.

Decisive Strike:

  • [REMOVED] Decisive Strike no longer has a new animation.

Dev note: This PTB featured a new animation for Decisive Strike in which the Survivor would stab the Killer to free themselves. This animation had too much of an effect on the Perk’s expected behaviour (adding a delay before the Survivor wiggled free). We have decided to remove the animation for Decisive Strike before the update is released. The stun time for the Perk will remain at 5 seconds for the time being.

Ultimate Weapon:

Note: The following changes will be part of a future update. The Perk will remain as it was on the PTB in the meantime.

  • [REVERTED] Affected Survivors will once again scream instead of having their aura revealed.
  • [CHANGE] Now affects Survivors within 32m of the locker (previously inside the Killer’s Terror Radius).

Dev note: We received some mixed feedback during the PTB; while the Perk was less appealing for some Killers, it remained a strong choice for Killers with high mobility. To make its strength a little more even across more Killers, we’ve changed Ultimate Weapon to be based on the locker’s position rather than the Killer’s. This way Killers without traversal abilities or with a smaller Terror Radius can take advantage of the Perk more consistently without it being excessive on highly mobile Killers.
With this in mind, we have also brought back the scream to allow it to synergize with other Perks once again.
