A brand new update for Dead By Daylight will arrive today (June 29) for all platforms at 11AM ET.

Following on from the hugely successful Resident Evil chapter that was recently introduced to Dead By Daylight, this update looks to improve performance issues on the Racoon City Police Station Map.

As well as this, the update has almost 20 new bug fixes for various issues. Most notably, the visual performance has been decreased for those playing on the Nintendo Switch in order to improve stability.

The developers for Dead By Daylight announced on Twitter that further fixes were being investigated regarding the Racoon City map crashing for players. Further information on the update and Nintendo Switch changes can be found in the patch notes.

Dead By Daylight – June 29 Patch Notes

Below you will find the full details and patch notes for the Dead By Daylight update released on June 29. This update will go live at 11AM ET for all platforms. These notes were taken from the official Dead By Daylight forum.

Performance Issues

This update contains a few changes that should improve performance for many players. That said, some performance issues still remain. The team is still actively working on more fixes across multiple platforms, including consoles. We will be monitoring the changes made within this bugfix patch for stability.  

We’re hoping this update will also help performance on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but we want to ensure it is stable enough to be reinstated for live games. We will be monitoring how the map is doing in custom games with these new changes and provide you all with an update soon. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on further improvements to the game’s performance!  

Switch Performance

We have reduced the overall visual quality on Switch to help improve performance. The game may still crash when played on the Raccoon City Police Station map, but less frequently. Rest assured, we are still working on ensuring that the new map does not crash on this platform.
