There’s a new Dead By Daylight update ready to download and install, bringing the game up to version 5.4.1 (also shown as 2.38 on some consoles).

This is a smaller game update that focuses on fixing on number of bugs and issues reported by the Dead By Daylight community following the recent release of Chapter 22 “Portrait of a Murder”.

Don’t expect any new content of major balancing tweaks – these tend to arrive when developer Behaviour Interactive drops a big mid-chapter update.

Still, players will be happy to see some of the improvements made, including the tracking of Dead By Daylight archive challenges.
