Dead by Daylight Ptb Patch 7.7.0 Lets You Check out Fancy New Store, Twins Update

The 7.7.0 Dead by Daylight patch is now available to try out on the Public Test Beta. There’s a brand new version of the in-game store, which includes a very cool new feature that lets you mix and match various cosmetics in a preview mode before buying them. The new free gift, while an obvious “let’s get players to log in more often” move, is still pretty nice as well. You can also easily preview Powers and Perks of characters in the store, preview Moris, and even preview the Moris with the various outfits you’re trying out.

The Match Details menu has also gotten a buff, letting you see Perks and Offerings, and hover them to see their description. No more being confused about what the heck your teammates brought into the Trial! Most of the rest of the changes were mentioned in the last developer update, but one new update we spotted is that Survivors can no longer cancel the unhook animation to troll people. You can check out our TL;DR of the patch below, or read on to see the full update.
