Dead by Daylight is one of the most popular games to check out with friends right now, and the online portion features two sides to the table — Killer and survivor — and the former has just had another character added to its roster! 

The widely successful Dead by Daylight has been soaring in recent years, as the game has been consistently maintained over the years with new updates and content for players to dive into.

One of the frequent additions in the game has been new killers for players to try out. For those who don’t know, killers are one of the sides you’ll get to play during a match, and you’ll be locked in first-person perspective, while you try and hunt down the three survivors.


All killers within the game offer special perks and attributes that can be used to your advantage, and it’s good to know the newest killer within DBD.

We’re going to run over the latest killer added into the game along when we think the next one will drop!
