Dead by Daylight Error Code 8012 is a server problem that many players may run into during the game. Error Code 8012 will most likely appear after a player is randomly kicked out of the game due to server errors. Here is what players can do in order to avoid running into the dreadful error code 8012.

Dead by Daylight's last update went live on Dec. 7, 2021, and unfortunately brought quite a few bugs into the game. With the mid-chapter update releasing on Jan. 25, 2022, players can expect a few of the technical issues, bugs, and server issues fixed. However, error code 8012 is still an issue players may be faced with.

This error code can happen at any time and will not allow a player to launch the game. There are several reasons why this may happen. These problems could be a personal connection issue that players can try to fix, or Dead by Daylight's servers could be down. In this case, the only solution is to wait and check on the game to see if Behaviour has solved the issue.

However, if the servers are running fine, here are a few solutions players can try in order to get back into the game.

  • Players should check on the status of their internet connection. An inconsistent internet connection could cause error code 8012 to appear.
  • Players should restart their device and internet router.
  • If the problem is a local server issue, players can try and use a VPN to join another server.
  • Finally, players can try to reinstall Easy Anti-Cheat. Error code 8012 can appear due to the anti-cheat.

If none of these solutions work, the only option is to wait, and try again another time. Although error code 8012 can be frustrating, the problem shouldn't last more than 24 hours unless the player is having connection issues. If a player is currently stuck with error code 8012 after trying these solutions, turn off the game and in the meantime, enjoy a different game.
