Behaviour Interactive revealed its October schedule for Dead by Daylight including the release date for Hour of the Witch. Mikaela Reid will give the players a new survivor to use introducing a new perk, Boon Totems.
As described in the developer update, "Survivors will be able to bless a totem to change it into a Boon Totem and these blessings are designed to offer comfort to the Survivor Team, a small safe haven. However, unlike a Hex Totem, the Killer can also quickly interact with the created Boon Totem to completely remove the associated blessing, once again turning it into a dull totem, they will also be able to hear the Boon Totem when in its range. Each Survivor can only have one Boon Totem active at a time. This Boon Totem will combine the effects of all of their equipped Boon perks."
Behaviour Interactive Reveals 'Hour of the Witch' Release Date in October Calendar
While the community is testing our the new killer changes and survivor on the PTB, the actual date was unknown at launch. Behaviour Interactive has now given an official date. Players will be able to use the Light Witch on Oct. 19. This is if nothing game-breaking is discovered on the PTB. If a serious bug or glitch is discovered, they may delay the release.
The developers will also be paying close attention to the strength of the Boon Totems. While they won't delay the release for that, they may nerf the perks out of the gate.
