Dead by Daylight Update 2.98 Patch Notes – October 28, 2023

Dead by Daylight 1

Exciting news for all Gaming enthusiasts! The much-awaited update, Dead by Daylight Update 2.98, has been officially released. This latest patch brings an array of thrilling Game Updates, crucial Bug Fixes, noteworthy improvements, and comprehensive Patch Notes for your perusal.

The update is accessible for all platforms, allowing both new and seasoned players to experience the revamped gameplay. Please keep in mind that the file size may differ based on the platform you are using.


Killer – The Skull Merchant

  • Reworked Low Power Mode Add-on:
    • Now decreases Drone Rotation speed by 100%, effectively stopping rotation.
    • No longer decreases Power cooldown by 25%.


The maximum number of pallets spawned in the Shattered Square Map has been increased to 18 to prevent large areas of the map from spawning with no pallets. The quality of the loops were also updated to reduce their safety. We hope this adds better gameplay for both roles.

Note: The map is not guaranteed to generate with this many pallets and will instead prematurely stop spawning pallets if the minimum pallet requirement has been reached and there are no more valid positions far enough from other pallets.
