Dead by Daylight PTB Patch 7.6.0 – New Killer, Survivor, Invocation Perk Type

We hope you’ve already figured out how to play against Chucky, because today’s PTB update is introducing another new Killer! Patch 7.6.0 brings Survivor Sable Ward and Killer The Unknown, plus a new map, Greenville Square. Naturally, the patch also includes the changes discussed in the recent Developer Update — QoL and other improvements and changes to a number of Killers, and a nerf to Mangled. There’s also a very unique change specific to streamers (we assume) — you can now disable copyrighted music in the Audio settings.

The new Survivor brings with her a couple of new effects in her Perks: an Invocation Perk that requires you to go to the Basement’s new salt circle and pay a penalty for a benefit, and another perk that requires the basement.

As always, we’ve summarized the patch notes for ya below, or you can read on to see the full list of changes!

Invocations are a new type of Survivor Perk. Invocations require Survivors to activate a salt circle in the Basement; on activation, a penalty is paid in exchange for a large boost.

Perks

Invocation: Weaving Spiders

  • When in the Basement near the circle, press the ability button 1 to begin the Invocation.
  • Invocations take 120/120/120 seconds. Other Survivors will see your aura during this and can join an ongoing interaction, increasing the speed by 50/50/50% each. If they have an Invocation Perk equipped, they increase it by 100/100/100% instead.
  • Once the Invocation is completed:
    • You become injured and Broken for the rest of the Trial.
    • All Generators instantly gain 9/12/15 charges.
    • Completing the Invocation disables that Perk for all Survivors.

Strength in Shadows

  • When in the basement, this Perk activates.
  • Unlocks the Strength in Shadows ability, which allows you to heal without a Med-Kit at 60/60/60% normal healing speed.
  • When you finish a heal in the basement, you see the Killer’s aura for 6/8/10 seconds.

Wicked

  • NOTE: The PTB features an older version of the Perk which has since been replaced. The effects listed below are how the Perk functions on the PTB, but this effect will be changed before the update goes live.
  • This Perk starts with 1 Token, up to a maximum of 5/5/5 Tokens.
  • For each Token, you recover from Mangled 20/20/20% faster.
  • For each 15/15/15 seconds spent in the basement, gain 1 Token.
  • While affected by the Cursed Status Effect, you heal 8/9/10% faster.

Killer Power
Press the Power button to charge UVX. Once ready, press the Attack button to launch UVX, a bouncing Projectile which creates a Blast Area upon impact. Survivors become Hindered if touched by UVX while airborne. Survivors touching the Blast Area become Weakened. Weakened Survivors lose health states if touched by Blast Area. Survivors lose Weakened by successfully Staring Down The Unknown.

Special Ability: Hallucinations

The Unknown will intermittently create Hallucinations. Hallucinations cannot be created while charging UVX, performing interactions, or in proximity to map objects like hooks. Whenever Survivors are touched by Blast Area or otherwise become Weakened, the next Hallucination’s spawn time decreases by 10 seconds.

Special Ability: Teleport

The Unknown can teleport to Hallucinations, leaving behind a temporary Decoy. Survivors can remove Hallucinations from the Trial with the Dispel ability. Weakened Survivors take longer to Dispel. If Dispel is not completed, Survivors become Weakened and trigger Killer Instinct.

Perks

Unbound

  • This perk activates for 24/27/30 seconds after a Survivor becomes injured by any means.
  • After vaulting a window, you gain 5% Haste for 10 seconds. This effect cannot stack with itself.

Unforeseen

  • When you perform the Break action on a Generator, your Terror Radius transfers to the Generator for 22/26/30 seconds and its radius is set to 32/32/32 meters.
  • You gain Undetectable for that duration.
  • Then, this Perk goes on cool-down for 30/30/30 seconds.

Undone

  • When a Survivor misses a healing or repair Skill Check, gain 3 Tokens, up to a maximum of 18/24/30 Tokens.
  • When you perform the Break action on a Generator, if you have any Tokens, consume all of them. For each Token consumed, the Generator loses 1% total progress and then becomes blocked for 1 second.
  • Then, once the Generator is unblocked, it starts regressing.
  • This Perk goes on cooldown for 60 seconds.

A new section of the Withered Isle opened up to the players. The Greenville Square is a very different environment from what was previously seen from that Realm. It features a brand new set of tiles, including a new main building, The Theater. Make sure to explore all its layers! Look out for the Statue where two familiar friends would meet up and leave their mark. What does it mean and where will it bring us next? No one ever came back to tell us.

Mangled up until now has required Survivors to heal in order to remove the effect, while also slowing down healing speeds. To create more meaningful player choice, we’ll be adding a timer to every source of Mangled in the game, allowing players to choose to heal through it, or wait it out.
