Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Activating Blood Warden during the last quarter of the Endgame CollapseIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGameIconHelp endGame will guarantee that any remaining Survivors will be unable to leave the Trial Grounds before the Endgame Collapse sacrifices them, even if someone is bleeding out or hooked and thus slowing the timer to half speed.
  • The Exit-Gate area refers to the enclosed space between the gate's door and the invisible line Survivors need to cross to escape and that is blocked for the Killer.
