Gabriel Soma is a new Survivor who has a natural talent for repairing generators. He can also see the auras of generators that are close to being completed. Gabriel is a valuable asset to any team, and his skills can help Survivors escape the Killer more quickly.

New Map: Dvarka Deepwood – Toba Landing

Dvarka Deepwood – Toba Landing is a new map that is set on a lush, alien planet. The map is full of dangerous creatures and obstacles, and Survivors will need to use all of their skills to survive.

Killer Tweaks

The Artist, The Nemesis, The Trickster, The Ghost Face, and The Executioner have all received some balance changes in this update. These changes are designed to make these Killers more effective and fun to play.

Perk Updates

Pop Goes the Weasel and Déjà Vu have both been updated in this patch. Pop Goes the Weasel now damages generators more severely, and Déjà Vu now reveals the auras of generators for a longer period of time.


The loadout and customization screens have been updated with a new search bar. This allows players to quickly find the items, add-ons, offerings, perks, cosmetics, outfits, and charms that they are looking for.

Items have also been divided into three categories: Survivor Items, Special Items, and Temporary Items. This makes it easier for players to keep track of their items and to know which items can be returned to their inventory at the end of a match.
