    After many months of speculation, a PTB of Dead By Daylight (DBD) Chapter 21 is finally arriving today with the brand new Hellraiser killer, Pinhead, also known as The Cenobite.

    Now that the upcoming Dead By Daylight Chapter has finally been confirmed, players can stop searching for hidden letters in images and jump into the PTB version before it officially releases.

    If you don’t plan on waiting for the official release of Chapter 21, here are the full patch notes and details for the PTB version of the new DBD update.

    At the moment, Dead By Daylight’s new Hellraiser Chapter is currently only available via a player test build (PTB). This can be accessed by opting into the PTB via Steam. Unfortunately, it isn’t available on console.

    To opt-in for the DBD PTB of Chapter 21, follow the steps below:

    Right-Click the Dead by Daylight Application in your Steam Library
    Access Properties
    Access the “Beta” Tab
    Select “public-test” from the dropdown
    Restart Steam (not required, but this updates the UI properly and kicks off the download)
    Below you will find the full patch notes and list of changes for the PTB version of Dead By Daylight Chapter 21. These notes were taken from the official DBD forum.


    Added an new Killer – The Cenobite
    Match Results – When players leave a Trial with a Limited Item (Example: The Nemesis’s Vaccine) they will now be notified that they do not get to keep it. It has been consumed by The Entity.
    Large Text Settings – The players can enable this option to enlarge all texts in the HUD, increasing readability.

    The Nemesis Update:

    Movement speed while charging Tentacle Strike Tier 3 increased to 4.0m/s (was 3.8m/s)
    Shattered S.T.A.R.S. Badge effect duration increased to 60 seconds (was 30 seconds)
    Iridescent Umbrella Badge effect duration increased to 30 seconds (was 15 seconds, but was erroneously displayed as 12 seconds)
    Ritual of The Nemesis reduced to reaching maximum Mutation Rate one time (was 4)
    Dev note: The Nemesis came out in a good state, but has been underperforming slightly in higher skill brackets. These players tend to hit Mutation Rate 3 more often, so a buff here should give him a slight boost at that level of play. Additionally, we have buffed two addons that were underperforming to make them more viable, and made the associated ritual less of a pain to complete.

    Various bug fixes and improvements to address performance issues on the Family Residence, Sanctum of Wrath and Midwich Elementary School.
    Blood Lodge, Dead Dawg Saloon and The Game maps are re-enabled
    Updated a variety of survivors hair and facial hair cosmetics.
