DBD Update 5.4.2 Patch Notes for December 15

A new hotfix is now live!

December 15, 2021

DBD update 5.4.2 is now live across all platforms and it fixes the performance drop issue when the Artist uses all of the Dire Crows at once.

Dead by Daylight Chapter 22 has been online for a while now, and players are pretty familiar with all the tricks and abilities that the Artists, the new killer, can use against other players.

One of the performance issues that the game used to encounter from the first day of the Chapter 22 release was when the Artist used all Dire Crows at once. Today’s update fixes this issue on all platforms.

Furthermore, the new hotfix wipes out many UI issues that you may have seen during your experience so far in this season. Have a look at the patch notes down below:
