New map – Garden of Joy

New Killer – The Dredge

  • New Perk: Resolution
  • 3 seconds after a Survivor is injured in any way, Resolution activates for 12/16/20 second(s). If Dissolve is active and a Survivor rapidly jumps over a palette within your terror radius, the entity will break the palette at the end of the jump and Dissolve will be disabled.
  • New Perk: Darkness Revealed
  • Opening a locker reveals the auras of all survivors within 8 meters of any locker for 3/4/5 seconds. This perk has a 30 second cooldown.
  • New Perk: Septic Touch
  • Whenever a Survivor performs the heal action within your Terror Radius, they suffer Blindness and Exhaustion. These effects last for 6/8/10 seconds after a heal is interrupted in any way.

New Survivor – Haddie Kaur

  • New Perk: Inner Focus
  • You can see the claw marks of other survivors within 32 meters of you. Whenever another Survivor loses health within 32 meters of you, the Killer’s Aura is revealed to you for 3/4/5 seconds.
  • New Perk: Remnant Manifesto
  • After a successful killer blind action, the killer is affected by the blind status effect for 20/25/30 seconds. This perk grants the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per trial and guarantees a basic flashlight.

  • After cleaning any totem, this benefit will be activated. Your generator repair speed is increased by 4%/5%/6%. This perk will be disabled if you lose a health condition in any way.
