A new public test build (PTB) is available for Dead by Daylight. It adds a new killer from the Hellraiser series, as well as some improvements and bug fixes.

New Killer

Horror fans probably know the name Pinhead from the Hellraiser series, and what better way to make a survival horror game even more fun? Add one of the most iconic figures in the genre, a Cenobite. So, expect Pinhead, the Hell Priest, in the game.

His main ability is Summons of Pain, allowing him to open a gateway that summons possessed chains. You can control these chains to bind survivors.

Any survivor who is unlucky enough to be caught will be unable to sprint. In addition, their movement speed will decrease significantly if they are hit with the second and third chains.

The Cenobite’s perks include Deadlock, Hex: Plaything, and Scourge Hook: Gift of Pain.

Added Features

Aside from a new killer, developers added a new setting that allows you to enlarge all texts, thus increasing readability.

Further, those who will leave a Trial with a limited item, such as the Nemesis Vaccine, will be notified that they cannot keep it as it has been consumed by the Entity.

Patch Notes

Here are highlights of the PTB Update 5.2.0:

  • Movement speed while charging Tentacle Strike Tier 3 increased to 4.0m/s (was 3.8m/s)
  • Shattered S.T.A.R.S. Badge effect duration increased to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds)
