NEW KILLER – ALBERT WESKER (THE MASTERMIND)

A visionary as brilliant as he is ruthless, Albert Wesker’s strategic mind is unrivalled. While some plans require intellect, others call for brute force. Rush forward to seize Survivors in your grasp and give them the gift of Uroboros – a necessary step on the path to evolution.

POWER

Virulent Bound: Charge your Bound attack to launch forward and strike. If your Bound collides with a Survivor, they will be briefly seized and Infected with Uroboros.

From there, one of two situations will occur. The first: Wesker collides with a surface while holding a Survivor, and that Survivor becomes Injured. The second: Wesker collides with nothing and flings the Survivor forward – if they collide with a surface, they will become Injured.

Special Effect – Uroboros Infection: When a Survivor is hit by the Virulent Bound, they are infected by the Uroboros, obtaining the Hindered Status Effect when fully infected. If Wesker hits a fully Infected Survivor with a Bound attack, they will be instantly carried.

Wesker’s Perks:

Superior Anatomy: After a Survivor performs a fast vault in your immediate vicinity, your next vault gains a significant speed boost.

Awakened Awareness: When carrying Survivors, the Auras of all Survivors in your Terror Radius will be revealed.

Terminus: When the Exit Gates are powered, any Survivor injured, downed, or Hooked will become Broken until at least one of the Exit Gates are opened. Once the Endgame Collapse begins, the Broken Status Effect will linger for a duration.


NEW SURVIVOR – Ada Wong

Sometimes it’s safer to keep people guessing, and no one knows this better than Ada Wong. Dexterous and enigmatic, Ada’s survival skills make her a valuable ally, provided interests remain aligned.

Ada Wong’s Perks:

Wiretap: After moderate Generator repair progress, gain the ability to install a Spy Trap that remains active for a duration. If the Killer enters the vicinity of a trapped Generator, their aura will be revealed to all Survivors.

Reactive Healing: When injured, gain an instant surge of Healing progress if the Killer injures another Survivor in your vicinity.

Low Profile: The moment you become the last Survivor standing, your Scratch Marks and Pools of Blood are temporarily invisible.


NEW SURVIVOR – Rebecca Chambers

Never underestimate the value of an experienced field medic. Rebecca Chambers leads by example when all seems lost, sometimes facing grave danger to assist those in need. Her medical brilliance keeps teammates alive and inspired, even if it puts her own safety at risk.

Rebecca Chambers’ Perks:

Better Than New: After Healing another Survivor, that Survivor gains an Action Speed boost to Healing, unlocking Chests, Blessing Totems and Cleansing Totems. That Survivor's Bonuses are retained until they are injured again.

Reassurance: Your presence calms those in The Entity’s clutches. While next to a Hooked Survivor, activate this Perk to pause their Struggle progression for a duration. Their Struggle Skill Checks also pause during this time.

Hyperfocus: The bonus progression for hitting a Great Skill Check is considerably increased, with each success granting a token. Each token increases the Skill Check frequency and cursor speed, putting those reflexes to the test.


REWORKED MAP – RACCOON CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT

A former art museum turned bastion of justice, the Raccoon City Police Department was left shattered by the outbreak. Even the bravest officers were overwhelmed by the ravenous dead.

The Racoon City Police Department Map has undergone a complete quality of life update. Moving forward, it will be split into two separate Maps built around the West and East Wings, with each version featuring a different arrangement of rooms.

Navigation will be far easier than before. Not only has the Map seen a considerable reduction in size, but plenty of new entrances have been added, the many corridors have been widened, and removed several extraneous rooms – including the library’s infamous second floor.

JILL VALENTINE & CLAIRE REDFIELD:

CHARACTER MODEL REWORK

In June of 2021, Part 6 of The Realm Beyond featured character model reworks of Dwight, Meg, Claudette, Jake, Nea, Ace, Feng, David, Kate, and more. This new update features model reworks of two beloved characters from the Resident Evil Chapter: Jill Valentine and Claire Redfield.


ANONYMOUS MODE

Anonymous Mode is now available. Upon activating it in the options menu, your in-game name will be replaced by your character’s name both in the lobby and in-game. The option to view a user’s profile will also be unavailable while they are using Anonymous Mode. This option is currently only available on Steam.


CONNECTIVITY ISSUES

Ah, connectivity issues. Sometimes, you trip over the modem during a pivotal, game-changing moment. It happens. Of course, some disconnects are entirely player-driven, but those can be tricky to distinguish mid-game.

We’re providing players with more information about connectivity issues that may occur during a trial. Survivors and Killers will now be able to see whether they or another player is experiencing connectivity issues, with icons appearing on the HUD to indicate specific problems like bad ping and packet loss.


Resident Evil is a legendary horror franchise, and we’re thrilled to bring even more iconic characters into Dead by Daylight with this new Chapter. Whether you choose to play as Albert Wesker, Ada Wong, Rebecca Chambers, or the Legendary outfit additions Sheva Alomar and Carlos Oliveira, there’s plenty of Resident Evil content to discover.

Experience true evolution in Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil: PROJECT W.
