Dead By Daylight update 1.83 now live

There’s a new update now available for Dead By Daylight – the hugely popular online horror game from developer, Behaviour Interactive.

Patch 1.83 has landed on all platforms and you’ll need to download and install this newest update in order to access servers and multiplayer features.

There doesn’t appear to be any major changes with 1.83 though players should take note of the following gameplay balances and bug fixes. Here are the official patch notes:


  • Added “Gates Closed” for the Gatekeeper Emblem bonus when ending the trial with the gates closed.
  • Removed the “Generators Remaining” stipulation from the Gatekeeper Emblem
  • Treatment Theatre: Reworked the Totems spawn location to hide them better.

Bug Fixes

  • Treatment Theatre: Fixed an issue that caused the Survivors to be unable to unhook their teammate if the Killer is “facecamping” on a specific hook
  • Fixed the display of the “Sealed Shut” Archive challenge which erroneously read “Survivor Master Challenge”
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Rift progress bar to disappear from the widget when no challenges are available.
  • Fixed an issue that caused an infinite loading when opening various Overlay menus as the Lobby timer ends.
  • Adjusted the lighting in The Rift.
  • Fixed an issue in Hawkins Lab where the user’s screen would go dark when their camera is placed on a certain way.
  • Fixed an issue that caused an influx of Player Level update error
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Archives level 4 to open when fully completing level 1 of Tome 2.
  • Treatment Theatre: Fixed an issue that could push Survivors out of world after destroying a specific totem.
  • Treatment Theatre: Adjusted the collision on two stairway walls.
  • Fixed an issue that caused The Hag’s Red Stain to change when teleporting to a triggered trap.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Survivors to avoid getting trapped by a Bear Trap while performing an interaction.
  • Misc Cosmetics improvement

Dead By Daylight recently went live with its second season-like Tome, presenting players with new challenges to complete and rewards to unlock.

Admittedly, we weren’t too hot on Dead By Daylight when it originally made the leap to PlayStation 4 in 2017. When compared with Friday The 13th: The Game, we found ourselves siding with Jason.
