Common errors are inevitable in almost any video game, and Dead by Daylight is no different. But when we are talking specifically about the game updates, the Dead by Daylight is typically more susceptible to post-update bugs. The Version Mismatch error is somewhat players have been recently encountering a lot after the latest patch.
It generally appears when you are trying to join your friend’s lobby who has been playing on a different platform than yours. And, you’re more likely to see it often whenever a new Dead by Daylight update drops out. So the real question is, “How do you fix it?” Let’s find out in this article.
How to fix Dead by Daylight “Version Mismatch” error
As the error name suggests, the Version Mismatch occurs when you’re trying to join someone’s party who is running a different Dead by Daylight version than yours. And as we’ve mentioned earlier, this typically emerges for players who are not on the same platform.
The reason behind it is pretty straightforward. Dead by Daylight updates usually rolls out on different dates for the distinct platforms. For instance, Xbox players received the Dead by Daylight 5.2.2 hotfix patch on September 18, and it hasn’t been released yet on PC and PlayStation, at least not at the time of writing this article.
Hence, the crossplay between these two platforms is unfeasible and as a result, Dead by Daylight will return you the Version Mismatch error whenever you try to make a party with Xbox players. So there’s nothing you can initiate on your end to get rid of this.
But you shouldn’t disappoint as the developers behind Dead by Daylight work actively to keep all the platforms under the same version. Thus, the Version Mismatch error will eventually get a fix within the next couple of days. Meanwhile, you can always keep an eye on Dead by Daylight’s official Twitter handle for any further development on this topic.
