Dead of Daylight gets slightly spookier today with the release of update 3.0.0. Developer Behaviour Digital has a new killer, The Ghost Face, in store for players alongside a number of different balance changes and bug fixes. Better yet, you'll also be able to rotate characters in the lobby.
To make sure you're up to speed for Dead By Daylight's newest content drop, let's take a look at when update 3.0.0 releases, how to get The Ghost Face and what abilities the game's newest killer brings to the table.
Dead By Daylight Update 3.0.0 Release, How to Get The Ghost Face and Abilities
Dead By Daylight's update 3.0.0 is set to release on all platforms at on June 18 at 12:00 EST. That is also when The Ghost Face is coming to Dead By Daylight on Steam, PlayStation Store North America, PlayStation Store Europe and the Microsoft Store. It'll land later today, at 21:00 EST on the Japanese PlayStation Store, while PlayStation Store Asia gets the DLC tomorrow, June 19 at 21:00 EST.
Most players will be eager to jump in, get The Ghost Face and lurk in the shadows, waiting for the proper moment to eliminate survivors. There are two ways in which you can do that. The first one is by purchasing the DLC from the stores mentioned above. The new killer can also be bought in the Dead by Daylight in-game store by using Auric Cells.
So what are The Ghost Face's abilities, then? His power is the Night Shroud. When the power gauge is full, activating this ability, completely hides the killer's terror radius. When Night Shroud is active, The Ghost Face can lean around corners and stalk survivors. Doing so exposes survivors, while attacking or being detected depletes the power gauge, ending Night Shroud. The killer can also crouch at will by pressing the active ability button. Doing so while Night Shroud is active hides your red stain.
In terms of perks, I'm All Ears Survivor sees survivors performing a rushed action outside of The Ghost Face's terror radius having their aura revealed for a short duration. Thrilling Tremors blocks all generators not being repaired for a short while after picking up a survivor, rendering them unable to be repaired for the duration. Affected generators will have a white aura around them. Lastly, the Furtive Chase sees The Ghost Face becoming obsessed with one survivor. When they're hooked, the killer gains a token reducing terror radius by several meters while in a chase. If a survivor rescues the obsession, the role is passed on to them. When the obsession is killed or sacrificed, all tokens are lost.
