Dead by Daylight: Patch 5.3.2 Brings Lots of Bug Fixes

Developer Behaviour Interactive has launched a bugfix patch for Dead by Daylight to give Killer mains a chance to destroy Boon Totems. Patch 5.3.2 has numerous bug fixes, including the one for the “Purchased Failed” error in the store where you can acquire a survivor without paying any Auric Cells.

Some people were naughty when placing Boon Totems because they did it in a way that Killers couldn't snuff them out.

Because of this, the devs decided to disable the animation restriction of these totems temporarily. It would be re-enabled once this issue is resolved. The restriction should let Killers destroy these totems through collision, but keep in mind that this is only a temporary solution. So, if you are a Killer main, enjoy this while it lasts.

Some notable fixes have been implemented on the Nintendo Switch version of the game as well. The text should no longer overlap in the key binding menu. Furthermore, the problem where performance gets a hit when moving the cursor while the console is docked has been fixed.
