Dead by Daylight received a new update recently that removes Anonymous Mode on most platforms.

Anonymous Mode is part of the streamer options introduced in a previous update. This feature replaces your account name with your selected character name. While other players cannot see your real account name, the people in your group can. Anonymous Mode was added to help reduce harassment, especially when streaming the game.

That said, the newly released Patch 6.2.2 removes this particular feature from most platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and the Windows Store and Stadia builds of Dead by Daylight. It seems that Anonymous Mode is still available on the Steam version of the game though.

According to Behaviour Interactive, the feature accidentally slipped into the build due to a data deployment issue and was never intended to be released on the aforementioned platforms. The removal of Anonymous Mode is to ensure that you’ll still be able to use some platform-level features, such as the ability to block or report players.

Although you can still report players harassing you no matter what platform you play Dead by Daylight on, you will no longer be required to input the offending player’s name or ID in the support form. This information is automatically indicated on the report that you submitted.

Anyway, Patch 6.2.2 also brings other changes and bug fixes. Here are some of them:

  • Updated Wiretap Perk description for clarity
  • Updated Bite the Bullet Perk description for clarity
  • Blast Mine: Requires 50% of a generator to activate (was 66%); trap stays active for 40/45/50 seconds (was 35/40/45)
  • Blast Mine: Updated description to clarify deactivation conditions
  • Fixed an issue that caused temporary ban pop-ups to not display the ban end date.
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused the game to crash when one survivor is left in a trial with The Mastermind.
  • Fixed an issue that caused The Mastermind's Uroboros Tentacle to become misaligned during the Mori of some female characters.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Virulent Bound to immediately let go of a Survivor caught from behind an obstacle.
  • Fixed an issue that caused exit gate entity spikes to appear incorrectly when The Mastermind slammed a survivor near the exit gate.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Forced Penance perk to fail to activate when performing a Virulent Bound.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Renewal perk to be activated while being Broken.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Renewal perk UI not to update while healing.

The full patch notes can be found on Steam.
