An original chapter: Roots of Dread

Although Dead by Daylight is known for its collaborations with other horror icons, Behavior does not neglect its original universe and characters. This new chapter will include a new killer, The Dredge, a new survivor, Haddie Kaur, and a new map, The Gardens of Joy.

Dredging is described as follows: “Composed of a fuzzy mass of sinuous limbs writhing in shadow, this Slayer is nothing less than darkness incarnate. With its presence reminiscent of monsters hiding under children’s beds. Dredging has a unique Power: the ability to teleport between Lockers to capture carefree Survivors who feel safe there, far from danger. »

Haddie Kaur, is a young Quebecer of Indian origin. “Haddie’s foray into the world of the paranormal occurs early in her life, filling her with courage, determination and a tinge of morbid curiosity. Being one of the only Survivors to have fought monsters in her past life, she is a formidable asset in fending off Slayers in the Entity World. »

Players who acquire this new chapter will be able to compete in The Gardens of Joy: “a picturesque postcard-like paradise, a quiet little American town with heavy secrets. The main building in this Map is a classic family home, a ghostly symbol of domestic terror set against a dark, gloomy background. »


We are very excited to offer our players an original Chapter for the game’s anniversary this year. Dead by Daylight has grown and grown enormously since its inception and with Roots of Dread we wanted to capture the essence of the game: the visceral fear and excitement of the hunt,” says Dave Richard, Creative Director for Dead by Daylight. . “The Dredge is a strange and creepy monster with a unique design, a first for Dead by Daylight. He hides and hunts in the shadows with the power to engulf Survivors in darkness. I think it will bring a very intense experience for all players.


Roots of Dread will be available on June 7 on Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, Nintendo Switch and Stadia.
