Update 5.0.2 has arrived for Dead by Daylight, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

A new hotfix goes live in Dead by Daylight, bringing in some well-desired fixes, stability improvements and an interesting change to Nintendo Switch’s performance. The team decided to decrease the quality of Switch’s visuals, in order to enhance the overall gameplay and make everything smoother. As the people behind the popular IP mention, this was a much needed action in order to avoid having the game crashing during a run in the Raccoon City Police Station map. It shouldn’t impact the game’s experience much, on the contrary, it should now enable a better game session for everyone who is trying out the survival game on the semi-handheld platform. For more details, make sure to check the official patch notes list below.

Dead by Daylight Update 5.0.2 Patch Notes

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.
