Dead by Daylight PBE Update Explained

The player test for Dead by Daylight basically means that players can sign up to test features and patches early, helping the development team uncover potential bugs or glitches before it rolls out to a wider audience. Plenty of popular games use PBEs, like Valorant and League of Legends. There are some limitations for the PBE, with the development team only accepting Steam members to test as of right now. For those interested in signing up for the player test, here's the step by step guide:

  • Right-click the Dead by Daylight Application in your Steam library
  • Select "Properties"
  • Select "Beta"
  • Choose "public-test" from the dropdown menu
  • Restart Steam

And that's all. The dev team hasn't spoken quite yet about what patches will arrive in the player test first, so players eager to try out new features and fixes first should keep their eyes peeled for now. It could very well be the newest killer to be announced for the series, Trickster.
