When the dusk turns full dark, it comes. Dead by Daylight’s Roots of Dread Chapter features a new Killer – The Dredge – and a new Survivor, Haddie Kaur. A new map, the disturbing Garden of Joy, is available for all players. Purchasing this add-on also unlocks an exclusive outfit for Haddie: The Pale Piped Shirt.
The Killer is The Dredge. A formless mass of twisted limbs writhing in the shadows, The Dredge is a manifestation of repressed darkness. All light will drain in the presence of this unsettling abomination. Look no further than the once-idyllic Garden of Joy, left forever tainted by The Dredge’s gruesome appetite.
The Dredge's Power: Reign of Darkness
Special Ability – The Gloaming: The Dredge can activate The Gloaming, leaving a Remnant behind. While The Gloaming is activated, The Dredge can teleport to any lockers across the map, allowing for heightened mobility and surprise attacks. Be warned – Survivors can barricade lockers to impede your progress. Otherwise, The Dredge can return to its Remnant.
Special Ability – Nightfall: Whenever the Dredge teleports, places a Survivor on a Hook, or injures a Survivor, the Nightfall meter builds. The meter also fills when Survivors are injured, as well as when The Dredge remains in a Locker.
When the meter is full, the entire map darkens. Simple navigation becomes a matter of life and death as Survivors scramble to stay one step ahead. Meanwhile, The Dredge loses its Terror Radius, gaining the element of surprise, as well as a reduced cooldown on Locker teleportation.
The Dredge comes with 3 new perks:
Upon opening a locker, reveal the aura of all Survivors in the vicinity of any locker.
After injuring a Survivor, Dissolution activates for a duration. During that time, if a Survivor performs a fast vault on a pallet in your Terror Radius, that pallet is destroyed at the end of the vault action.
Whenever a Survivor heals within your Terror Radius, they are inflicted with Blindness and Exhaustion. Those status effects briefly remain after the healing action is interrupted.
The new Survivor is Haddie Kaur. Fuelled by courage, determination, and a dash of morbid curiosity, this explorer of haunted corners leaves no stone unturned in her quest for eldritch understanding.
Haddie comes with 3 new perks:
Reveal the scratch marks of all nearby teammates. Should a teammate lose a health state while in your vicinity, the Killer’s aura is briefly revealed.
After successfully blinding the Killer, the Killer will gain the Blindness status effect, briefly losing the ability to see auras. In addition, gain the ability to rummage through an opened chest once per trial for a guaranteed basic flashlight.
After cleansing any totem, your generator repair speed is slightly increased. The increase ends whenever you lose a health state.
NEW MAP: GARDEN OF JOY*
In this tainted garden, dreadful roots spread through blood-drenched soil. A withered mansion, twisted by unfathomable darkness, casts a long and maddening shadow.
*This map is free for all players.
