The Realm Beyond

From Dead by Daylight Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Realm Beyond is a series of graphical updates as part of a massive rework of most of the assets and Maps found in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png, which started with Patch 4.2.0 in September 2020.

In a Developer Diary released mid-February 2021, the Developers expanded on their original plans and also include reworks to the Characters IconHelpLoading players.png, including animations, visual effects, textures, etc.


Overview[edit | edit source]

The update is split across several parts, each updating a handful of assets and Maps from the Game.
This may also include new animations, visuals and sound effects.

Midway Update[edit | edit source]

At the half-way point of the update series, the Developers also started addressing the Characters IconHelpLoading players.png, starting with new locomotion animations for Survivors and texture updates for Character models.
Updates to Characters are planned to include new animations, visual effects, 4K textures and more.

Colour-Blindness Support[edit | edit source]

Since Dead by Daylight heavily relies on the colour red, Players suffering from colour-blindness often experience difficulties with tracking Scratch Marks IconHelp scratchMarks.png, discerning Auras IconHelp auras.png from backgrounds, etc.

The Developers planned to implement a feature that will allow these Players to address their individual type of colour-blindness and intensity, which was ultimately implemented in Patch 4.6.0:
