Dead By Daylight update 2.02 lands – here’s what it fixed

Behaviour Interactive have risen from the crypt with yet another patch for their popular multiplayer hit, Dead By Daylight.

Dead By Daylight 2.02 dropped earlier today and is now available on consoles. For the PC crowd out there, this will be marked as version 4.2.1.


So what can horror fans expect from this fresh patch? Well, nothing in terms of new game content. Last week’s 2.01 update came tagged with a new Killer – The Blight – as well as Survivor Max Richter. Instead, Dead By Daylight 2.02 makes some quick fixes since the roll out of the new chapter, Descend Below.

You can read the full patch notes below. First, here’s a quick reminder that everyone who owns Dead By Daylight on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be entitled to a free next-gen upgrade on PS5 and/or Xbox Series X. Behaviour Interactive recently patched the game with cross-play and cross-progression on selected platforms.
