dbd ptb 5.5.0 featured image
Game: Dead by Daylight
Content Type: Gaming News
Date: August 10, 2022

The Patch 6.2.0 is now available on the PTB and adds several things to the game. Most notably, this patch brings a new killer and two new survivors, all from the Resident Evil franchise, which also adds 9 new perks to the game. While this patch won’t be bringing a new map, the Racoon City Police Station map is instead being split into two different layouts (East and West wings) and both of those will have new openings, wider hallways, and of course will be smaller than the original Racoon City Police Station map.

Lastly, other than different bug fixes, we are getting improved connection indicators to better understand the connection issues in-game and which players are affected, and we’re also getting new Streamer Options for PC players that will give streamers different ways to prevent harassment both in-game and/or on their streams.

For the full list of changes, make sure to check out the full patch notes below!

Progress & save data information has been copied from the Live game to our PTB servers on August 1st. Please note that players will be able to progress for the duration of the PTB, but none of that progress will make it back to the Live version of the game.

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%/40%. This perk deactivates after vaulting a window. This perk has a 30 seconds cool-down

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 2 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 open. When exit gates are open, survivors will stay broken for an additional 20/25/30 seconds

New Perk: Wiretap

  • After repairing Generators for a total of 33%, this perk activates. After repairing a Generator for at least 3 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%/35% 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 Perk: Better Than New

  • Upon completing a healing action on another survivor, the targeted survivor gets a 6% 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 on the struggle phase, it also pauses the Struggle Skill Checks. This perk has a 40 seconds cool-down

New Perk: Hyperfocus

  • After hitting a great Skill Check while repairing or healing, this perk gains 1 token, up to 6 tokens. Each token increases the chance of Skill Check trigger by 2%, the Skill Check cursor speed by 4% and the bonus progression for great Skill Checks by 10%/20%/30% of its base value. The perk loses all tokens in case of normal Skill Check success, Skill Check fail, or if you stop performing the action by any means
