Behaviour Interactive had a lot to talk about today during their special Sixth Anniversary livestream for Dead By Daylight. The team had a massive presentation in which they basically laid out all of the plans for the next chapter, new additions, quality of live improvements, and more. Chapter 24 is ready to go as it will be called Roots Of Dread. You're getting a survivor in Haddie Kaur and a new killer called The Dredge, which is the definition of nightmare fuel. You'll also be getting a new map added to the mix as it creeps you out close to home. That content will drop into the game on June 7th, 2022.
You're also getting an entirely new game as they have made a DATING SIM! Yes, that is correct, no lie. Hooked On You will be giving you the chance to hit on and date your favorite killers in a twisted kind of fashion. There are also new crossovers with Resident Evil and Attack On Titan, both of which will be coming out later this year. The mobile game will also be getting a robust upgrade as they will be bringing it back to life with a force of nature. We have more details about the major news below, along with trailers, and you can check out the livestream video here.
What is fear? What is it made of and what fuels it? That's what fans will try to answer as they meet the latest Killer to step into the Fog: The Dredge. A formless mass of twisted limbs writhing in the shadows, The Dredge is nothing less than a manifestation of darkness itself. With a "monster under the bed" approach, it comes with a very special Power: the ability to teleport between Lockers to catch unsuspecting Survivors when they feel safe out of harm's reach.
Those who prefer to play as Survivor will have their share of excitement as they get to personify the brave and bold Haddie Kaur. Born in India, Haddie moved to Quebec with her family as a child. After losing her biological parents in a tragic car accident, she was raised by a Quebec family who were close friends of her parents. Haddie's foray into the paranormal came early on, fuelling her with courage, determination, and a dash of morbid curiosity. Having fought monsters in the past makes her one of the few Survivors prepared to face off with Killers in the Entity's Realm. Fans may recognize her from her appearances in the Archives and can now take the reins of her destiny as a Survivor.
The Garden of Joy is the new disturbing Map players will get to experience – a scenic paradise set in a quaint American town hiding big secrets. The main building for this Map will be a classic family home, a ghostly symbol of domestic horror set against a cold and dreadful backdrop.

Will they find true love, forge friendships or get hacked to death? Only they can decide. As mystery unfolds, it's their job to make sense of it all. What brought them here? Where did these Killers come from? Why do they show so much interest? And, most importantly, if only one had to be chosen for love… who would it be?

This summer, fans will get to know Dead by Daylight's Killers like never before, and truly discover what makes each of them tick – beyond their general love of murder and mayhem, of course!
