Days ago, Dead by Daylight’s developers teased a new upcoming killer that would be entering the test realm. Now, gamers can try out the new killer and survivor; The Clown Killer and Kate Denson.

The Clown uses a poisonous gas called The Afterpiece Tonic and his Power causes Survivors to suffer reduced movement speed, cough, and impaired vision. He will have 3 personal perks that include Coulrophobia, Pop Goes the  Weasel, and Bamboozle.

  • Coulrophobia causes Survivors within his terror radius to have a 30% penalty to healing progression speed.
  • Pop Goes the Weasel causes the next Generator he breaks to be instantly regressed by 15% of its total progression.
  • Bamboozle increases the Killer’s Vault speed by 5%, with a vault action calling upon The Entity to block that vault location for 8 seconds.

Kate Denson will have Windows of Opportunity, Boil Over, and Dance With Me. Each contains their own unique aspects to counter Killers.

  • Windows of Opportunity unlocks potential in her aura reading ability, with auras of pallets and vaults revealed when within a 20 Meters range.
  • Boil Over increases her struggling effects on the Killer by 25%.
  • Dance With Me will leave no scratch marks for 3 seconds when performing a fast vault or leave a locker in a sprint.

It seems fitting that Dead by Daylight would finally add a clown-themed killer. There’s many famous examples, with such as Pennywise from the novel It, the Batman franchise with Joker, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, and so many other examples of killer clowns.

Dead by Daylight is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
