Dead By Daylight Resident Evil Chapter: Release Date, Leaks And Everything We Know So Far

Dead by Daylight 5th Anniversary has been a decent celebration of the game thus far, but the release of Chapter 20 will be the cherry on top of the cake.

Chapter 19 launched not too long ago and introduced the Trickster and plenty of new content into the game.

But sure as day follows night, or killers follow survivors, we know that there's always another chapter on the horizon.

LEAK - New Legendary Sets

It would appear that a Steel Series Giveaway has more or less confirmed that the upcoming Resident Evil themed Chapter 20 will have two legendary sets for Leon and Jill. These Legendary skins will transform our survivors into fellow Resident Evil characters Chris and Claire Redfield.

Some Chase Music To Pass The Time

So how about some chase music to pass the time?

Nemesis Killer Lore

A third and final piece of DBD lore for everyone to enjoy before the inevitable launch. This time we're taking a look at the new killer, the Nemesis Tyrant. Plus, another piece of awesome artwork:

Designed by Umbrella Corporation, The Nemesis is a nearly unstoppable bio-organic weapon fixated on pursuing and eliminating its targets. Part of the Tyrant T-103 series, this specimen has increased intelligence and awareness due to the NE-α Parasite implanted within it. Its first mission unleashed it upon Racoon City, where it had a singular objective: exterminate S.T.A.R.S. members. Rampaging through the city, The Nemesis faced off against Jill Valentine multiple times, and though she managed to escape, he was never far behind. He nearly had his target, when a strange fog descended upon them, mixing with the smoke of a city in chaos. The phenomenon meant nothing to him—the frigid cold and decreased oxygen never posing a threat. All that mattered was soldiering on into the fog, continuing the mission: find S.T.A.R.S., exterminate S.T.A.R.S., and kill anyone who gets in the way.

Jill Valentine Lore

Another piece of DBD lore for you to enjoy, this time with a focus on Jill Valentine, along with yet more creepy cool artwork:

Excelling at lock picking and bomb disposal, Jill Valentine was a brilliant Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) agent. After bravely rescuing her team members from a devastating biohazard, she returned to Racoon City to save any survivors left behind. But a lethal and ruthless super soldier labelled Nemesis was on her trail. After dealing The Nemesis a few blows, Jill rushed to the basement and picked the lock of a cold room. Once inside, her body turned numb as a black fog engulfed her.

Leon S. Kennedy Lore

Here's a new piece of DBD lore and artwork to help keep you entertained until the new season launches:

Having faced hordes of zombies on his first day as a police officer, Leon S. Kennedy had to learn the job quickly. Investigating the biohazard that had ravaged Racoon City, Leon infiltrated an abandoned Umbrella Corporation laboratory where a sudden and unexpected black fog led him astray.

Confirmed: Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil Killer

Nemesis can infect survivors with his initial tentacle attack. Infected survivors cough and vomit, making them easier to locate, but they're also more susceptible to damage from Nemesis' second tentacle attack.

AI-controlled zombies accompany Nemesis on any map he appears on, and they, too, can infect and attack survivors.

Survivors can grab vaccines to counteract the T-Virus, but they'll be limited in number.

Confirmed: Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil Survivors

Behavior Interactive lifted the lid on the Dead By Daylight Resident Evil crossover during the fifth anniversary, introducing a new map, two new survivors, and a new killer.

Leon Kennedy and Jill Valentine join Dead By Daylight as the chapter 20 new survivors.

Jill's special perks revolve around her adaptability and resourcefulness, while Leon's introduce a new mechanic.

Under certain circumstances, Leon can craft a flash grenade in the match. It's not something you have to add in the loadout, but what those conditions are that make it possible, we don't know.

Dead By Daylight Jill and Leon Legendary Skins

Dataminers found evidence of new Legendary skins for Jill and Leon, each with their own voiced lines.

Some speculate it could be Chris Redfield and Claire Redfield thanks to a quirk when Nemesis kills Leon.

The code dataminers found shows Nemesis should say "S.T.A.R.S." when he kills legendary-skin-Leon, the same as when he kills Jill.

However, Leon's never been part of S.T.A.R.S., so unless it's Barry Burton, Chris would make sense.

Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil Map

The Raccoon City Police Department is the new Resident Evil map in Dead By Daylight, and Behavior made it as almost identical to the Resident Evil 2 remake version, with a few DBD twists.

Dead By Daylight x Resident Evil Release Date

Dead By Daylight Resident Evil PBT goes live immediately after the anniversary stream ends and the full chapter releases June 15.
