Dead By Daylight PTB Patch Notes: 5.0.0 Update Changes For Resident Evil Chapter

The Dead By Daylight 5th Anniversary event has come to a close, showcasing a multitude of new content coming to the game.

But lets be honest, it's Chapter 20 and the addition of Resident Evil inspired map, killer and survivors that are the true 'S.T.A.R.S.' of today's show.

Fans will have to wait a good few weeks before they can enter Raccoon City proper. But right now, the new Raccoon Police Department map, Nemesis killer and both Survivors in Jill Valentine & Leon S. Kennedy are available to play on the PTB (Player Test Build).

You might be wondering what other changes Behaviour Interactive have made. Well have no fear, the latest set of patch notes - for the PTB server - are here.
