A new beta update for Dead by Daylight is now available on the public test build. Patch 6.3.0 brought a lot of new features, including a new accessibility tab and flashlight cooldowns.

Flashlights are an indispensable tool in Dead by Daylight because you can use them to blind the killer for a short time.

While flashlights are generally useful in the game, they can result in flash-induced seizures, especially when people deliberately turn them on and off in quick succession. To reduce strobing and the dangers that come along with it, developers imposed a slight delay between switching the flashlights on and off. Additionally, the sound effect has been adjusted to match the new speed.

This latest beta update also adds a new accessibility tab in the options menu that allows you to tweak and enable certain features, including:

  • In-Game Text
  • Dialogue Subtitles
  • Subtitle Background
  • Subtitle Size
  • Large Text
  • Colorblind Mode
    • Mode
    • Intensity
  • Motion Sickness
    • Last Survivor Standing FOV (Field of View)

Patch Notes

  • Inclusion of Stage 2 of our Prestige Catch-Up. Characters which were level 50 and prestige 0, 1, or 2 as of the 6.1.0 release will receive 2 bonus prestige levels, as if they had been prestiged.
  • Archives
    • New Challenge Slots in the Archives: Players now can select a Survivor and a Killer challenge at the same time. This will hopefully improve the experience for players who switch roles often, or want to take full advantage of the Matchmaking Incentives Bloodpoint Bonus.
    • Any challenges shared by both roles can also be assigned to the slot of your choice, or both slots, if desired.
    • Selecting a slot with an equipped challenge will navigate you to the respective tome and level of the equipped challenge.
  • Completed Challenges now remain in the Archives widget until either claimed or replaced. A new Challenge Complete visual was added to the archives widget minimized state to better convey when the challenge you are working on is completed. This will hopefully reduce the current issue of not noticing your challenge has been completed previously and entering a subsequent trial (or six) without an active Archives Challenge.
  • Removed "press and hold" interaction on challenge nodes.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the incentive bonus to not be given to players at the end of trial.
  • Fixed an issue that caused perks appearing to lose tiers when prestiging the character whose perks were purchased in Shrine of Secrets.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the camera to move down when a player presses the crouch input while being sprayed by the First Aid Spray.
  • Fixed an issue that may cause the Mastermind to retain maximum velocity for the rest of the trial after using Virulent Bound.

Dead by Daylight Patch 6.3.0 PTB is available on PC.
