Dead By Daylight has made a name for itself by consistently churning out new content for players to either run from or massacre as. Yet the latest update… is a weird one to be sure. While bringing in a load of tweaks and balance changes, the biggest addition is a new survivor and monster: Yun-Jin Lee and The Trickster as Chapter 19: All-Kill makes its debut.
Sounds pretty straightforward, until you realise that The Trickster is a K-Pop star (Korean Pop, if you didn’t already know) who murders folks because he just really likes making music out of human bones. Yun-Jin Lee on the other hand used to be The Trickster’s producer. Emphasis on the “used to be”.
Look, this is a game that’s already gone out of it’s way to recruit every popular horror icon of the last 50 years, this level of weirdness was bound to happen at some point.
Both The Trickster and Yun-Jin Lee come with a unique set of skills and weapons that can be used to turn the tide of battle. The example provided by Gamespot is The Trickster’s “Main Event” ability that allows them to throw an unlimited amount of knives, increases the throw rate and then also increases their movement speed. Definitely doesn’t sound like something you’d want as a poster hanging above your bed.
Beyond those additions the 4.6.0 update has also brought with it changes to older monsters, namely The Blight and The Wraith. The former has been tweaked so players can see what they’re doing a little better (the camera level for The Blight felt a little low and has thus been raised) while latter has had their cloaked movement speed buffed and nerfed while uncloaking.
