Dead by Daylight All-Kill chapter release time and what to expect
After throwing in killers from Stranger Things, Scream and Silent Hill, Dead by Daylight is entering more unconventional territory for their next DLC offering. 

Released back in 2016, Dead by Daylight has become the go-to asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer horror game, which is set for a significant visual overhaul to mark the title’s fifth anniversary this year.

Before that, there’s the release of a new chapter to make the crossover between horror nasties even more absurd. So here’s what you need to know about Dead by Daylight’s All-Kill chapter.

The next chapter for Dead by Daylight will officially arrive on Tuesday 30th March, after it was previously playable on the test servers.

Developers Behaviour Interactive haven’t stated a time for when All-Kill will drop, although judging by past updates, it’s expected to release at the following times in each region.

  • UK - 4pm BST
  • Europe - 5pm CET
  • West US - 8am PT
  • East US - 11am ET

Behaviour Interactive has since confirmed the characters will be available through the in-game store at the above times, although the DLC pack will arrive on store fronts an hour later at 5pm BST/12pm ET.

What’s included in Dead by Daylight’s All-Kill chapter?

The All-Kill chapter features two main new additions; a new K-pop inspired Killer called The Trickster and new Survivor Yun-Jin Lee.

The former’s power is throwing blades, which he can either launch singularly or as a wave if you hold down the power button. Each successful hit with a blade fills up a meter on the survivor’s health status, which once full, starts damaging them. There’s also another meter for the killer, which allows him to unleash unlimited blades at a faster pace for a limited time once full.

Each character has their own unique set of perks to mess around with too, which you can check out below. 

The Trickster killer perks

  • Starkstruck - Activates when you are carrying a survivor. Survivors within your Terror Radius suffer from the Exposed status effect and persists for 26/28/30 seconds after leaving it. The perk cools down for 60 seconds once a survivor is no longer carried.
  • Hex: Crowd Control - The Entity blocks a window for 14/12/10 seconds after a survivor performs a rushed vault through it. The Hex effects persist until the totem is cleansed.
  • No Way Out - Each time you hook an unique survivor, the perk gains a token. When the last generator is repaired, The Entity blocks both exit gate switches for 10 seconds, with additional 4/6/8 seconds for each token in your possession.

Yun-Jin Lee perks

  • Fast Track - Whenever another survivor is hooked, you gain 1/2/3 tokens. You consume all tokens after a great skill check on a generator. Each token consumed grants a 1% bonus progression for great skill checks when repairing generators.
  • Smash Hit - After stunning the killer with a pallet, break into a sprint at 150% your normal speed for 4 seconds. Causes Exhaustion for 60/50/40 seconds.
  • Self Preservation - Whenever another survivor within 12 meters gets hit by a basic attack or a special attack, the perk activates. Your scratch marks, pools of blood and grunts of pain are hidden for 6/8/10 seconds.

From the test servers, the developers have also made numerous balance adjustments to the Trickster and Yun-Jin Lee, which you can check out in this Twitter thread
