Developer Behaviour Interactive has released Update 5.2.1 for Dead by Daylight. It mostly contains bug fixes, but it does re-enable two maps: the Raccoon City Police Station and Dead Dawg Saloon.

Those who have been playing the popular Cenobite, Pinhead, will be happy to know that the devs have fixed some of his abilities. For instance, his Cluster of Chains will immediately respawn after a targeted survivor cancels the “solve” action before completing the Lament Configuration.

In addition, his teleportation interaction will now move Pinhead on the same level as the survivor he’s teleporting to. After playing the Cenobite for a while, his Bloody Hook and Chain may still appear on the menu. Although some people may mistake it as an intended feature, it is not. This has been fixed in the latest update.

As for bug fixes, the devs fixed several issues about shared DLCs. For example, there was a problem with the Steam version where players couldn't share DLCs via the Steam Family Share. Also, cross-progression between Steam and Stadia may cause players to no longer share DLCs. Fortunately, this has been fixed.
