BHVR shared their plans for the upcoming Tools of Torment Mid-Chapter update today in a Developer Update. It covers a wide range of changes and improvements, including Bloodweb purchases, Killer updates, and an update to Autohaven Wreckers. Lots of things the community has been asking for appears in the update — plus plenty of other changes. As usual, we’ve distilled them all into an easy-to-parse list for your convenience!

Dead by Daylight March 2023 Developer Update TL;DR:

  • Bloodweb Improvements
    • Bloodweb Chain – Select a node, and the game will automatically buy all the nodes required to reach the selected node
    • Automatic Purchase – Select the new center node to automatically complete the Bloodweb (the game will prioritize Perks, then the cheapest option)
    • Press to Buy – You can now click to purchase a node (rather than having to hold it) by default — the old interaction will remain for those who want it

    • A visual indicator of the Terror Radius can be toggled in the Accessibility Options
    • The Visual Terror Radius will be modified by colorblindness settings
