This bugfix patch comes just two days before the upcoming Public Test Build, which will release at 11 am ET (4 pm GMT) on Wednesday, 29th June.

The new Public Test Build will allow players to test out the new prestige system, perk overhaul, and other new features in Dead by Daylight's biggest update yet.

It's probably a good sign that Behaviour has taken the time to patch up all of these lingering bugs in the game before they release such a large update. With this bugfix patch and the upcoming PTB, Dead by Daylight players certainly have a lot to look forward to.

And that's all. For more Dead by Daylight guides, tips, leaks, and news, be sure to check out our dedicated section.
