If you head over to Dead by Daylight’s Youtube channel you’ll see there is a new upload which could only mean…..
NEW KILLER, SURVIVOR AND MAP REVEAL
In the latest Dev stream we got to see glimpses of what the new map will entail as well as a new killer and survivor perk. Today, our anticipation has been laid to rest until the official release for The Saw Chapter.
A killer perk that was leaked and ultimately was floating around was called “Jigsaw’s Baptism” And it was described as this:
Forever devoted to her master’s cause, she punished the ungrateful and the guilty with slyness and murderous puzzles. The Pig can move stealthily, dash in ambush attacks and put deadly Reverse Bear Traps on Survivors’ heads.
Use the Secondary Power interaction to assume a crouching position. While crouching:
The Pig has no Terror Radius. Activate the attack interaction to dash and perform an ambush attack. Start the trial with 4 Reverse Bear Traps:
Reverse Bear Traps are put on Dying Survivors. Reverse Bear Traps automatically sacrifice the survivor when they trigger. Reverse Bear Traps trigger automatically beyond the Exit Gates. Reverse Bear Traps trigger once their timers expire. Reverse Bear Traps timer start when a generator is completed. Survivors can free themselves from Reverse Bear Traps by searching Jigsaw Boxes found around the map to find the correct key.
“You will give everything to me, every cell in your body. The marks on your arms, they’re from another life. We’ll leave that life behind. When you walk down that corridor there is no turning back. Do you understand that?” – Jigsaw’s Baptism
It was speculated that there was no way in hell that this could actually be a killer perk. But alas, when you read the description of the video it indeed mentions reverse bear traps. RIP to us all.
If anyone is familiar with the Saw franchise, the woman they are referring to is Amanda Young. She was beyond devoted to Jigsaw and did any and everything for him. And now she has come to carry on his legacy under the guidance of the Entity.
Also, EVERYONE can rejoice as the new chapter drops TOMORROW FOR PC, PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE USERS.
Another thing to note is the new survivor, David Tapp. While I’m annoyed there is another male character in this game (and why are there 2 David’s now?!) I am happy to see that it is someone of color. If you haven’t watched the official trailer take a look below!
Who are you going to play as? The Pig? David Tapp? Both? I’m excited to play as both and to see how this killer changes up the game that is Dead by Daylight. The Saw Chapter will officially release tomorrow, January 23rd on Steam, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
The Entity awaits.
