A new patch for Dead by Daylight just dropped that fixed major problems in the game, so players should download the update once they have the chance.

Developer Behaviour Interactive hopes that Hotfix 5.0.2 will solve the performance issues that some players have with the Raccoon City Police Station map.

While the improvements to the map are already in effect, they are only applied to custom games at the moment. The developers said that they are continually monitoring the stability of the update and they may apply the changes to the live games soon if everything goes well.

Aside from that, the game's performance on Nintendo Switch has been improved. Sadly, this is done by reducing the game’s overall visual quality, but maybe this is a fair compromise considering a smoother gaming experience.

Here is the complete rundown of the bug fixes in Hotfix 5.0.2:

  • Fixed an issue that could prevent The Nemesis's tentacle from appearing in the menu during his idle animation.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent downed survivors from being picked up when near certain walls or corners.
  • Fixed an issue that could display the wrong Dwight's head icon in a Tutorial Hud if a legendary outfit was equipped before starting the Tutorial
  • Fixed an issue where no Player Statuses were displaying in Spectate mode
  • Fixed an issue with the analog cursor speed in the Onboarding menu
  • Fixed an issue in the Customization menu where multiple customizations could remain highlighted as selected
  • Fixed an issue where a synchronization error would sometimes occur when completing a Survivor tutorial.
  • Fixed an issue where players could load into a public match through a custom lobby.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes occur where players get a server connection error when opening their friends list.
  • Fixed an issue where the cursor pointer would change to gamepad mode too early.
  • Fixed an issue where completing a tutorial match with bots would cause customization and perks to be unequipped for all characters.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Nemesis's Tentacle strike to hit the Survivor through some of the windows and main building.
  • Fixed an issue where the generator cannot be repaired on one side on the Pale Rose map.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a global flicker in the environment while moving around the maps.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a Zombie to get stuck on a collision at the entrance of the foundry in the Ironworks of Misery.
  • Fixed an issue where players could walk on a pallet in the Yamaoka map by climbing a rock.
  • Fixed an issue where cleansed totem skulls remain floating at the back of the truck in the Junkyard map.
  • Fixed an issue where the Survivors can't be picked up by the killer near the logs next to the Mother's Dwelling building and the corner of Gideon Meat Plant.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause crashes due to the OOM (out of memory) issue.

The developers have stated that they’re actively working on more fixes across multiple platforms, so there might be another update very soon.
