Stay sane...

The Last Breath is the first Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It provides a glimpse of the effect of insanity in its purest and most violent form, as players gets to visit the Crotus Prenn Asylum. You'll also meet a new Killer, the Nurse, and the Survivor Nea Karlsson.

Wretched minds, screaming in the dark can still be heard late at night. A Nurse with an equally distorted mind as those she treated. A Survivor with catlike movements. And an asylum that nobody left sane...or alive.

Killer: The Nurse[]

Main article: Sally Smithson

The Nurse's Info[]

NR charSelect portrait

Say Hi to Sally

To work close to pure insanity is something that consumes the mind – warping it into something odd and feral. Sally Smithson's futile attempts to remain civilised failed, pushing her over the edge, making her “treat” several patients in a much more fatal manner.

The Nurse's Power[]

IconPowers breath

"A powerful and violent last breath snatched from Crotus Prenn Asylum Warden Patrick Spencer.
Channelling its energy allows The Nurse to pierce and jump through the Spirit World in a blink multiple times in a row.
Doing so leaves her in a state of fatigue."

The Nurse starts the Trial with 2 Tokens.
Press and hold the Power button to charge a Blink.
Release the Power button to initiate a Blink.

Using Spencer's Last Breath consumes -1 Token per Blink / Chain Blink.

A Blink allows The Nurse to pierce the Realm of the Entity and teleport through obstacles and walls in a straight line:

  • Grants the ability to teleport for up to 20 metres.
    • The Nurse can adjust the Teleportation distance by aiming at any point closer to her.
    • The Nurse can teleport to other floors by aiming at the ceiling or floor of a room that has another one above or below it.

After the first Blink, if there is at least 1 Token available, the Chain Blink Window automatically opens for 1.5 seconds, during which The Nurse can initate a Chain Blink:

  • Grants the ability to teleport for up to 12 metres.
    • The Nurse can adjust the Teleportation distance by aiming at any point closer to her.
    • The Nurse can teleport to other floors by aiming at the ceiling or floor of a room that has another one above or below it.

After either the Chain Blink Window closes or the final Chain Blink elapses, The Nurse enters a state of Fatigue for 2 to 3 seconds, depending on how many Blinks she chained.

The Nurse's Perks[]

Tracking, Finding and Dismembering

The Nurse is a horrid creature with a power called Blink, making her able to teleport between two locations. The Nurse can only teleport in a straight line, but teleporting can be linked – making her move across a larger area. The Nurse also comes with 3 new Perks, emphasising on tracking and finding Survivors.

Survivor: Nea Karlsson[]

Main article: Nea Karlsson

Nea's Info[]

NK charSelect portrait

Nea from Sweden

Nea had a good upbringing, in a small, rural town in Sweden. She never thought she'd be one of those with baggy pants who's tagging government building in the night. But being uprooted does something to a human, and her parents weren't that understanding to how Nea's life changed. So Nea fled the “normal” life her parents wanted her to live, and took refuge to the streets.

Nea's Perks[]

Staying Under the Radar

Nea is agile and quick. Years on skateboards and duping cops have made her beyond streetsmart, and as she's often spending days away from her comfortable and safe home, she's clever than most. Nea Karlsson comes with 3 new Perks, emphasising on evasion and speed.
