The changes included in this month's PTB mainly surround the game's new Finishing Mori system. It's important to note that the new system will not go live in the next update for live servers, unlike most PTB releases.

Here are all of the changes and fixes players can try out in the PTB.

Features

      • The Onryō's Power, The Executioner's Power, and The Shape's Judith's Tombstone addon still function as before.

      • Other Survivors on the ground are killed by the Entity.
      • Other Survivors on hooks are immediately sacrificed.
    • When a Survivor becomes the Last Standing, all Survivors and the Killer are notified that if this last one goes down, the game ends.

      • Self-recovery takes 45 seconds.
    • Blood On Your Face Achievement will change to "In public matches, kill 4 Survivors."

      • Unbreakable: Increases dying self-recovery speed by 80%/90%/100%.
      • Soul Guard: Gain the Endurance status effect for 4/6/8 seconds after being healed or having recovered from the dying state. Also gain a 10% Haste status effect for 5 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 30 seconds.
      • No Mither: You suffer from the Broken status effect for the entire Trial, but gain the benefit from the follow effects: Pools of Blood are suppressed, When Injured or dying your Grunts of Pain are reduced by 25/50/75%, Your Recovery speed is increased by 15/20/25%.

Once all Generators are completed, the Obsession's aura is revealed in red for 10 seconds and is permanently inflicted with the Exposed status effect.
      • Hex: Devour Hope: When a survivor is rescued from a hook at least 24 meters away, Devour Hope receives a token. 2 Tokens: Gain a 3%/4%/5% Haste status Effect,10 seconds after hooking a survivor, for a duration of 10 seconds. 3 Tokens: Survivors suffer from the Exposed status effect. 5 Tokens: Any Survivors who are placed on a hook die immediately. Survivors already on a hook are unaffected.
        • Once fully recovered, the Survivor will see a "Get Up" prompt.
      • Healing another Survivor who is in the dying state still takes 16 seconds, as before.
    • IMPORTANT NOTE:
      • Due to production constraints, the localizations of the updated Perks, Offerings, and any other text related to the Finishing Mori System will not be seen during the PTB.

The following features are planned to ship in the next release:

  • Added a new Accessibility tab in the Options menu. Includes the following sub-categories:
    • In-Game Text
    • Dialogue Subtitles
    • Subtitle Background
    • Subtitle Size
    • Large Text
  • Colorblind Mode
    • Mode
    • Intensity
  • Motion Sickness
    • Last Survivor Standing FOV
  • Inclusion of Stage 2 of our Prestige Catch-Up. Characters which were level 50 and prestige 0, 1, or 2 as of the 6.1.0 release will receive 2 bonus prestige levels, as if they had been prestiged.
  • Flashlight cooldowns
    • To reduce strobing and the associated dangers regarding flash-induced seizures, Flashlights now have a slight delay imposed between switching them on and off.
    • The Flashlight click speed is now slower. The sound effect has been adjusted so it matches the new speed.
  • Archives
    • New Challenge Slots in the Archives: Players now can select a Survivor and a Killer challenge at the same time. This will hopefully improve the experience for players who switch roles often, or want to take full advantage of the Matchmaking Incentives Bloodpoint Bonus.
      • Any challenges shared by both roles can also be assigned to the slot of your choice, or both slots, if desired.
      • Selecting a slot with an equipped challenge will navigate you to the respective tome and level of the equipped challenge.
    • Completed Challenges now remain in the Archives widget until either claimed or replaced. A new Challenge Complete visual was added to the archives widget minimized state to better convey when the challenge you are working on is completed. This will hopefullly reduce the current issue of not noticing your challenge has been completed previously and entering a subsequent trial (or six) without an active Archives Challenge.
    • Removed "press and hold" interaction on challenge nodes.

Optimization

  • Optimizations done to the Huntress.
  • Small improvements to animations and textures in Archives.
