This DLC features:


The SAW™ Chapter is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight.

Life is the most precious thing we have. A gift we are given, but a gift some squander. We need to be alive and not just exist. This is where The Pig steps in - a teacher that provides those selected with an opportunity to appreciate life yet again. To fight for our own survival, or simply let go and die. David Tapp thinks otherwise. He believes that everyone is free to live their own life, without the threat of death in the shape of a trap. A seasoned detective that seeks The Pig - a search that brings him to the Gideon Meat Plant.

Puzzle me this

They say that it’s good for the human race to solve puzzles, to make use of our highly developed brain. To get some of that “positive stress”. But there’s a limit. A lethal limit where blood gets involved and we create memories of something we rather forget. The Pig is the puzzlemaster, and we are the test subjects.

The SAW™ Chapter™ is a Chapter for Dead by Daylight. It includes a new Killer, a Survivor and a Map.

The Pig

The Pig is a disciple of a mastermind known to the world as Jigsaw. In both The Pig and Jigsaw’s minds, they believe they are doing something necessary. Something that’ll make those placed inside their devious contraptions see life for what it really is once again. There are, of course, some sacrifices one must be willing to make, if one is to survive the “lesson”. Good luck…

  • Once the Death timer expires, the Active Reverse Bear Traps snaps open, automatically killing the Survivor.
  • A Survivor attempting to leave the Trial Grounds through an Exit Gate with an Active Reverse Bear Traps immediately trips the Reverse Bear Trap.
    • The trap will beep rapidly warning the Survivor of the active nature, even with the timer paused due to chase or downed.
    • The tripping occurs halfway between the gate and the exit.
    • Survivors can exit through the hatch with an Active Reverse Bear Trap.
  • The Death timer is paused whenever the Survivor is being chased by The Pig, is in the Dying State, or is on the Hook.

Press the Active Ability button to crouch and uncrouch.

Map's Info[]

IconMap Fin TheGame.png

The Abattoir

The Gideon Meat Plant is no longer a place of death designed for animals. Its focus has shifted towards the human race. You can still sense a scent of blood mixed with rust and fear. Thousands upon thousands of animals have met their end at this place, but those humans who enter the premises are not supposed to die. They are meant to survive and learn. But the majority of those who participate will fail.
