Dead by Daylight Bugfix 7.2.1 Patch Notes

See what fixes are coming to Dead by Daylight with the newest patch.

It looks like the Xenomorph isn’t the only thing coming to Dead by Daylight, after taking a look through these patch notes. This popular asymmetrical multiplayer experience is surprisingly balanced, considering the sheer amount of content in it, but that doesn’t mean it’s always running at its best. Let’s see what the team at Behaviour is looking to fix and change, and let’s hope that there are no busted buffs this time around in Dead by Daylight’s 7.2.1 Patch Notes.
