Dead by Daylight x Resident Evil DLC available today; Is it worth it?

The next chapter of Dead by Daylight and Resident Evil is finally here, much to the delight of horror gamers. Dubbed as Project W, the newest DLC in Dead by Daylight adds more iconic Resident Evil characters to the game.

But with the release of another DLC in Dead by Daylight, there’s always the question of whether getting it is worth it or not. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest Dead by Daylight x Resident Evil DLC. Read on to find out whether it’s worth getting or not.

Dead by Daylight x Resident Evil introduces Wesker, Ada, and Rebecca to the game

Dead by Daylight is no stranger to crossovers. In the past, we’ve seen Silent Hill and Stranger Things added to the game. So it would make sense that they’re collaborating with Resident Evil again.

The first collaboration they had with Resident Evil introduced a new map. After it dropped, the Raccoon City Police Department became one of the maps in the game. Moreover, it added Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine as survivors. And as for the Killer, Behaviour Interactive chose to include Nemesis in the game.

And now we have the second time these games are collaborating with each other. Project W, the latest DLC in Dead by Daylight has been anticipated by fans of both the game and Resident Evil.

Although this is not the first time Resident Evil collaborated with Dead by Daylight, players have been looking forward to this release since it introduces three new characters to the game.

There are two survivors and one killer added to Dead by Daylight

  • The two survivors are icons from the Resident Evil franchise: Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers.
  • As for the killer, who else would be worthy of following in the footsteps of Nemesis other than Albert Wesker?

Aside from fresh faces arriving in Dead by Daylight, these characters have their different perks. And from the gameplay we’ve seen so far, Albert Wesker is definitely a must-have.

New Survivor and Killer perks are introduced in Dead by Daylight for the Project W DLC

The Mastermind is Wesker’s official title now that he’s part of the Dead by Daylight universe. Even though it hasn’t been long since he’s released, Wesker’s power is frightening.

Here are the official patch notes for the newest Killer in Dead by Daylight, The Mastermind:

  • Virulent Bound
    • Charge your Bound attack to launch forward and strike. If your Bound collides with a Survivor, they will be briefly seized and Infected with Uroboros.
  • Special Effect – Uroboros Infection
    • When a Survivor is hit by the Virulent Bound, they are infected by the Uroboros. Additionally, they obtain the Hindered Status Effect when fully infected. If Wesker hits a fully Infected Survivor with a Bound attack, they will be instantly carried.

  • Superior Anatomy
    • After a Survivor performs a fast vault in your immediate vicinity, your next vault gains a significant speed boost.
  • Awakened Awareness
    • When carrying Survivors, the Auras of all Survivors in your Terror Radius will be revealed.
  • Terminus
    • When the Exit Gates are powered, any Survivor injured, downed, or Hooked will become Broken until at least one of the Exit Gates are opened. Once the Endgame Collapse begins, the Broken Status Effect lingers for a duration.

For a Killer that powerful, it’s only reasonable for DBD to add two Survivors with perks that can counter Wesker, right? So even though Wesker is powerful, the new Survivors make up for it.

Here are the patch notes for Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers:

Ada Wong

  • Wiretap
    • After moderate Generator repair progress, gain the ability to install a Spy Trap that remains active for a duration. If the Killer enters the vicinity of a trapped Generator, their aura will be revealed to all Survivors.
  • Reactive Healing
    • When injured, gain an instant surge of Healing progress if the Killer injures another Survivor in your vicinity.
  • Low Profile
    • The moment you become the last Survivor standing, your Scratch Marks and Pools of Blood are temporarily invisible.

Rebecca Chambers

  • Better Than New
    • After Healing another Survivor, that Survivor gains an Action Speed boost to Healing, unlocking Chests, Blessing Totems and Cleansing Totems. That Survivor’s Bonuses are retained until they are injured again.
  • Reassurance
    • Your presence calms those in The Entity’s clutches. While next to a Hooked Survivor, activate this Perk to pause their Struggle progression for a duration. Their Struggle Skill Checks also pause during this time.
  • Hyperfocus
    • The bonus progression for hitting a Great Skill Check is considerably increased, with each success granting a token. Each token increases the Skill Check frequency and cursor speed, putting those reflexes to the test.

With all that being said, do you think getting the Project W DLC in Dead by Daylight is worth it? Personally, we think it’s worth it considering the new content introduced in the game with this DLC.
