Dead By Daylight: Hellraiser Expansion Confirmed, Player Test Build Info Released

Although the Stranger Things content in Dead By Daylight is on its way out, after having already been teased earlier this week, it is now confirmed that Hellraiser will be the next expansion for the horror multiplayer phenomenon, and developer Behavior Interactive has also released information on how you can get involved in an early test build for player test build 5.2.0.

The confirmation of Hellraiser came in the form of another tease rather than a full trailer unfortunately, though you can get a hands on look at the expansion in action through the test build.

You can check out the teaser for yourself, here:

To access the build, for those who haven’t done so before, you won’t be able to do so on consoles, you’ll need to have a copy of the game on Steam. Once the game is in your library on PC you can right click the game, access the properties and then select ‘beta’ and ‘public-test’. Once complete it should work, but if not just restart Steam and you’ll be good to go.

As is the case with each early player test, there will be bugs and issues so expect that going in, but note Behavior Interactive is working quick as they can to scrub any issues out. You can check out the full patch notes for player test 5.2.0 for yourself, here:

Player Test 5.2.0 Patch Notes

  • Added an new Killer – The Cenobite
  • Match Results – When players leave a Trial with a Limited Item (Example: The Nemesis’s Vaccine) they will now be notified that they do not get to keep it. It has been consumed by The Entity.
  • Large Text Settings – The players can enable this option to enlarge all texts in the HUD, increasing readability.


The Nemesis Update:

  • Movement speed while charging Tentacle Strike Tier 3 increased to 4.0m/s (was 3.8m/s)
  • Shattered S.T.A.R.S. Badge effect duration increased to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds)
  • Iridescent Umbrella Badge effect duration increased to 30 seconds (was 15 seconds, but was erroneously displayed as 12 seconds)
  • Ritual of The Nemesis reduced to reaching maximum Mutation Rate one time (was 4)

Dev note: The Nemesis came out in a good state, but has been underperforming slightly in higher skill brackets. These players tend to hit Mutation Rate 3 more often, so a buff here should give him a slight boost at that level of play. Additionally, we have buffed two addons that were underperforming to make them more viable, and made the associated ritual less of a pain to complete.

  • Various bug fixes and improvements to address performance issues on the Family Residence, Sanctum of Wrath and Midwich Elementary School.
  • Blood Lodge, Dead Dawg Saloon and The Game maps are re-enabled
  • Updated a variety of survivors hair and facial hair cosmetics.
