Learn more about The Knight, Vittorio Toscano, The Shattered Square, and everything coming to Dead by Daylight with Chapter 26: Forged In Fog.
NEW KILLER – THE KNIGHT
A nightmare to behold with longsword in hand, many have fallen to The Knight’s unyielding fury. His Guards – The Jailer, The Assassin, and The Carnifex – obey his commands with unwavering loyalty. Use them to patrol routes, deal with obstacles, and steer Survivors directly into your blade’s path.
Special Ability – Guard Patrol: The Knight has 3 loyal Guards: The Jailer, The Assassin, and The Carnifex. Activate your Power to create a Patrol Path for one of your Guards to follow. While planning your Patrol Path, you can arrange for your Guard to engage in an action. Possible Actions include damaging a Generator and destroying a Pallet or Breakable Wall.
Guard Special Ability – The Hunt: When a Guard detects a Survivor in or around his Patrol Path, The Hunt begins. The Guard will begin pursuit, leaving a Standard on the ground, and attempt to Injure or Down the Survivor. The Survivor can end The Hunt early by grabbing the Standard, unhooking a Survivor, or outlasting The Guard. Guards will cycle one after the other in a consistent order, with each one having a different speciality. The Carnifex breaks and damage objects faster. The Assassin stays on the Hunt for the longest. The Jailer patrols longer and faster than the others.
The Knight’s Perks
Nowhere To Hide: Upon kicking a Generator, the aura of all nearby Survivors will be revealed.
Hex: Face the Darkness: Injure a Survivor to ignite a Hex Totem tied to that Survivor. When that Hex is active, every other Survivor outside your Terror Radius will scream intermittently, revealing their position. The effect fades when the cursed Survivor is Injured or Downed. It deactivates entirely once the Hex Totem is cleansed.
Hubris: Whenever you are stunned by a Survivor, that Survivor becomes Exposed for a duration.
NEW SURVIVOR – VITTORIO TOSCANO
A voyager from a lost age and willing wanderer of realms, Vittorio Toscano strove to unearth the mystic and arcane – a ceaseless quest that remains ongoing. Untold years of exploration in The Fog have forged him into an exemplary leader, frustrating Killers with intuitive instincts and a fearless disposition.
Vittorio Toscano’s Perks
Potential Energy: After repairing a Generator for a brief uninterrupted duration, this Perk can be activated. Upon activation, all repair progress will not contribute to that Generator. Instead, it will charge up to 20 Tokens, storing a considerable dose of repair progress.
Once gained, Tokens can be used to immediately transfer repair progress into a Generator of your choosing. All Tokens will be lost when injured, while some will be lost upon failing a Skill Check.
Fogwise: Hitting a Great Skill Check while repairing a Generator will reveal the Killer’s Aura for a brief duration.
Quick Gambit: When you are chased in the vicinity of a Generator, any Survivor repairing that Generator will receive a repair speed boost.
NEW MAP – THE SHATTERED SQUARE
Hear the tale of The Shattered Square, where the flames of dishonour smolder and the stench of decay hangs thick. Once prosperous and full of life, the village was ravaged by The Knight and his loyal followers. The Forged in Fog Chapter introduces this new Map – The Shattered Square – from a new Realm – The Decimated Borgo.

BOTS IN CUSTOM GAMES
We’re thrilled to announce that Bots are now available in Custom games. Moving forward, the host of a Custom lobby will have the option to add up to 4 Bot Survivors to their game. So next time you’re missing a player, or if you simply want to try out a new Killer in a low-pressure environment, look to the Bots for assistance. Note that at this time, Bots cannot equip Perks.
We hope you enjoy everything Chapter 26: Forged In Fog has to offer. It’s been an absolute pleasure going medieval with The Knight and Vittorio Toscano, and we can’t wait to see them in action.
See you in The Fog,
The Dead by Daylight team.
