Change Log

Patch 3.2.0

  • Rework: Dying Light now gains a Token each time a Survivor is hooked that is not the Killer's Obsession and as long as the Obsession remains alive, all other Survivors will be affected by a penalty to their Repair, Healing and Sabotage speed. The Obsession on the other hand gains a boost to the speed of unhooking and healing other Survivors.
