The latest update for Dead by Daylight is now available on live servers. Killers such as the Legion and Ghost Face received some pretty significant changes. In addition, Patch 5.7.0 also changes how Hemorrhage works.

The Legion has a unique mechanic called Feral Frenzy. When activated, it gives him additional bonuses, such as increased movement speed and the ability to vault pallets without breaking them. In Patch 5.7.0, Legion now increases his movement speed by +0.2m/s for each successful hit of Feral Slash. This buff lasts for the remainder of Feral Frenzy. Besides that, after landing four successful hits with Feral Slash, the next Feral Slash puts the survivor into a dying state, also ending Feral Frenzy.

Danny Johnson, also known as the “Ghost Face,” wears the scary and familiar mask from the Scream movies. That said, Ghost Face can no longer be revealed by marked survivors. Furthermore, Ghost Face’s add-ons have been reworked. For instance, Olsen’s Journal now inflicts Oblivious to marked survivors.

As mentioned earlier, Patch 5.7.0 implements the Hemorrhage rework. Now, survivors affected by this status effect have their healing progression regress at a rate of 7% per second when not being healed.
