Dead by Daylight (DBD) Update 6.2.0 PTB Patch Notes

Dead by Daylight, or DBD, is welcoming its latest crossover in the form of Resident Evil Project W. It's now live on the game's public test build (PTB) servers as of August 9, 2022. That means players can get their hands on the new Resident Evil-centric content before Resident Evil Project W releases in full.

This is the second Resident Evil crossover for the asynchronous horror game Dead by Daylight. Players are usually invited to test new content by way of PTB servers to offer feedback and test out the new additions before an official release date is confirmed. Downloading and playing on the PTB servers is free to everyone, though it's only available for PC players on Steam.

As of the most recent PTB update, Dead by Daylight players will be able to try out the new Killer, Albert Wesker. Survivors Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers will also be available. They're joining the Killer Nemesis and two existing Survivors, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine. Resident Evil has long been a favorite of Dead by Daylight and horror fans alike, so this new collaboration comes as no surprise.

If you're looking forward to testing out the new Resident Evil characters coming to Dead by Daylight, you can join the Resident Evil: Project W PTB environment now. Be sure to check out the official patch notes as well to get up to speed on what each character can do.

'Dead by Daylight' Update 6.2.0 Patch Notes: 'Resident Evil: Project W' PTB

New Killer - The Mastermind

New Perk: Superior Anatomy

When a survivor performs a fast vault within 8 meters of you, this perk activates. The next time you vault a window, your vaulting speed is increased by 30, 35, or 40 percent. This perk deactivates after vaulting a window. This perk has a 30-second cooldown.

New Perk: Awakened Awareness

When carrying a survivor, you can see the aura of other survivors within 16/18/20 meters of your position. Auras revealed this way linger for two seconds after you stop carrying the survivor.

New Perk: Terminus

When exit gates are powered, this perk activates. While the perk is active, injured, downed and hooked Survivors are inflicted with the broken status effect until exit gates are opened. When exit gates are open, Survivors will stay broken for an additional 20/25/30 seconds.

New Survivor - Ada Wong

New Perk: Wiretap

After repairing Generators for a total of 33 percent, this perk activates. After repairing a Generator for at least three seconds, press the Ability button to install a spy trap, which stays active for 60/70/80 seconds. The aura of the trapped generator is revealed in yellow to all Survivors. When the Killer comes within 14 meters of the trapped generator, their aura is revealed to all Survivors. Damaging the generator destroys the Wiretap.

New Perk: Reactive Healing

When another Survivor loses a health state in a 32 meters radius around you while you are injured, instantly increase your healing progression by 25, 30, or 35 percent of the missing healing progression.

New Perk: Low Profile

When you become the last Survivor, this perk activates. Hide your scratch marks and pools of blood for 70/80/90 seconds.

New Survivor - Rebecca Chambers

New Perk: Better Than New

Upon completing a healing action on another survivor, the targeted survivor gets a 6 percent speed boost to generator repair, healing, chest opening and totem cleansing for 25/30/35 seconds.

New Perk: Reassurance

When within a 6-meter radius around a hooked survivor, use the Active Ability Button 2 to pause their struggle progression for 20/25/30 seconds. If they are in the struggle phase, it also pauses the Struggle Skill Checks. This perk has a 40-second cooldown.

New Perk: Hyperfocus

After hitting a great Skill Check while repairing or healing, this perk gains 1 token, up to six tokens. Each token increases the chance of Skill Check trigger by 2 percent, the Skill Check cursor speed by 4 percent and the bonus progression for great Skill Checks by 10/20/30 percent of its base value. The perk loses all tokens in case of normal Skill Check success, Skill Check fails, or if you stop performing the action by any means.
