Patch 6.2.0 for Dead by Daylight is now officially live on all platforms. This update features three prominent characters from the Resident Evil franchise, namely “The Mastermind” Albert Wesker, Ada Wong, and Rebecca Chambers.

Some changes were made to Albert Wesker in the live version of Patch 6.2.0. First, the collision and Survivor detection of his Virulent Bound power has decreased to just 20 cm. Second, the movement speed between the first and second Virulent Bound is increased slightly to 2.76 m/s.

In terms of perk changes, the Reassurance perk had its restriction changed to once per survivor, per hook instead of a 40-second cooldown. The generator repair boost for the “Better Than New” perk is removed as well, but this is somehow compensated by the added totem blessing and increased speed boost.

Here are the other changes:

The Mastermind
  • Virulent Bound throws ending at a ledge will now result in the Survivor falling instead of stopping at the ledge
  • Survivors standing too close to a vault point or dropped pallet will now be injured when The Mastermind vaults it
  • Survivors used as collision for Virulent Bound will now always get Deep Wound (previously only applied Deep Wound to injured survivors)
  • Add-on: Loose Crank
    • Decreased the movement modifier to 8% (was 20%)
  • Low Profile
    • Added grunts of pain to the effects affected by the perk
  • Better Than New
    • Increased speed boost to 12%/14%/16% (was 6%)
    • Removed effect duration: Survivors now keep the bonus until they lose a health state
  • Hyperfocus
    • Increased Skill check chance per token to 4% (was 2%)
  • Reactive Healing
    • Increased healing values to 40%/45%/50% (was 25%/30%/35%)
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue that caused Jonah Vasquez to trigger Leon S. Kennedy voice lines and reactions from other Resident Evil characters
  • Fixed an issue that caused Rebecca’s grunts of pain to be louder than the one from other survivors

  • Fixed an issue that caused anonymous mode to hide player names from survivor group members

  • Fixed an issue that may cause the Mastermind to float into the air after throwing a survivor with his Virulent Bound
  • Fixed an issue that may cause survivors to float into the air when thrown by the Mastermind’s Virulent Bound
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Virulent Bound to be unusable for the rest of the trial after being used on a survivor with the Mettle of Man or Dead Hard effect active
