Get ready for the Roots of Dread as it prepares to set in on Dead By Daylight. The game’s forthcoming chapter is bringing yet another ferocious killer and another survivor to the mix, extending its long roster of monsters.
In the Roots of Dread update, players will be introduced to The Dredge, a new killer who has the ability to teleport into lockers and kick off the horrifying Nightfall mechanic, bringing complete darkness to the trial as well as improving the Dredge’s powers.
Players will definitely get a nice kick out of this character as it should “feel like you’re the embodiment of darkness, of fear itself,” creative director Dave Richard said in the sixth-anniversary broadcast. Having the ability to teleport to lockers gives The Dredge a fair amount of mobility, and its Nightfall will gradually build upon the survivors, which will impair their vision and add another layer of fear to the trial.
In this article, we’ll be detailing some of The Dredge’s abilities as well as the release date.
The Dredge also has three distinct perks which can be taught to other killers as well. And as a sort of foil to The Dredge, the developers are bringing another survivor, Haddie Kaur, to the game. Kaur can see Bleeds—areas where the Entity intersects with our reality, said Richard—and has had a couple paranormal encounters of her own as well.
When does the Dredge release in Dead by Daylight?
The Dredge will make his Dead By Daylight debut alongside the Roots of Dead chapter, which is set to launch on June 7. Players who can’t wait to get their hands on the new killer can go ahead and give the test version of Chapter 24 a try, as a Public Test Build is currently available on Steam.
The Public Test Build serves as a place where players can give their respective feedback on the game’s new content before it debuts live on the servers. In other words, the chapters can play differently on the Public Test Build and on the live servers, considering how all elements of it are subject to change.
To add to the chapter’s already deadful ambiance, Behaviour Interactive is adding another map called the Garden of Joy, another trial that serves as a playground for the Entity.
