dead by daylight 6.4.0 ptb patch notes news featured image
Game: Dead by Daylight
Content Type: Gaming News
Date: November 1, 2022

At 11AM ET today, patch 6.4.0 was added to the Dead by Daylight Public Test Beta, bringing with it a new Killer as well as a new Survivor. The new Killer, The Knight, doesn’t come as a surprise, given the leak of a For Honor crossover chapter last month. Many players speculated Apollyon would be the new killer, but as yet the Killer’s backstory has not been revealed. Same for the new Survivor, Vittorio Toscano, although from the picture that has surfaced, it appears he’s likely from the For Honor universe (the leather ties on his shirt certainly suggest he isn’t from modern times).

The new Killer’s perks include what sounds like two fairly strong detection perks in Nowhere to Hide and Hex: Face the Darkness, plus a perk that Exposes survivors that stun you. The new Survivor’s perks all focus on gen repair: one lets you repair generators faster, one reveals the Killer when hitting a great Skill Check on a gen, and the third increases ally repair speed when you’re in a chase near a gen being repaired.

This patch also features a number of exciting changes revealed in last week’s Dev Update, among them an update to Flashlights, bots in custom matches, and improved matchmaking (though the matchmaking in the PTB is already less strict due to lack of players). Read on to see the full patch notes!

New Perk – Nowhere to Hide

  • Whenever you damage a generator, reveal the aura of all survivors standing within 24 meters of your position for 3/4/5 seconds

New Perk – Hex: Face the Darkness

  • When this Hex is inactive and you injure a Survivor, a Dull Totem becomes lit and hexes that Survivor. When the Hex is active, all other Survivors outside of your Terror Radius will have a chance to scream intermittently, revealing their positions and auras for 2 seconds. Other Survivors also see the aura of the cursed Survivor for 12/10/8 seconds. When the cursed Survivor is downed or returned to full health, the Hex is lifted, and the Hex Totem becomes unlit. Cleansing the Hex totem deactivates Hex: Face the Darkness permanently

New Perk – Hubris

  • Whenever you are stunned by a Survivor, that Survivor suffers from the Exposed status effect for 10/15/20 seconds. Hubris has a cooldown of 20 seconds

New Perk – Potential Energy

  • After working on a generator for 12/10/8 uninterrupted seconds, press the Active Ability Button 2 to activate this perk. When this perk is active, repairing the generator will charge this perk instead of making the generator progress. For each 1.5% of generator repair, the perk will gain one token, up to 20 tokens. While this perk has at least one token and you are working on a generator, you can press the Active Ability Button 2 to consume all the tokens and instantly make the generator progress by 1% for each token. This perk then deactivates. If you lose a health state while this perk has at least 1 tokens, the perk will lose all tokens and deactivate. Missing a skill check will also result in some charges lost

New Perk – Fogwise

  • Hitting a great Skill Check while repairing a generator reveals the aura of the Killer to you for 4/5/6 seconds

New Perk – Quick Gambit

  • When you are chased within 24 meters of any generator, any other Survivor working on that generator receives a 6/7/8% speed boost to the repair action
