New Killer - The Good Guy

Killer Power

The Good Guy has two separate modes he can switch between; Normal Mode and Hidey-Ho Mode. Due to his short height, The Good Guy also has a fixed third-person camera positioned above and behind him, giving the player a better view of his surroundings. He is also much shorter than other Killers making him very stealthy, however he leaves fading Footfalls behind as he walks.

Special Ability: Hidey-Ho Mode

Press the Secondary Power button to enter Hidey-Ho Mode for 14 seconds. While in this mode the Killer is Undetectable, and "distraction" Illusory Footfalls and audio are spawned all across the map.

Special Attack: Slice & Dice

While in Hidey-Ho Mode, press and hold the Power button to charge up a Slice & Dice Attack. When fully charged, you automatically dash forward at high speed, triggering an attack at the end. The Power button can be released during the dash to perform the attack early.

Special Ability: Scamper

While in Hidey-Ho Mode, when you are near a vault or pallet, press the Interaction button to scamper through it quickly without breaking it.

Map Updates

The largest Maps in the game, The Mother's Dwelling and The Temple of Purgation of the Red Forest Realm, have been reduced in size. This will help both roles enjoy a play area that is consistent with the other maps. While we were making adjustments to the Red Forest Realm, we also did a pass on the gameplay of the tiles and improve the navigation and the readability of the map.

The Garden of Joy also benefited from a gameplay pass. The house has been revisited to find a better combination of obstacles and reduce the strength of some of the windows. A pass on the tiles has also been done, since the visibility was making it hard for players to enjoy a better navigation in the map and bring the focus on the chase, loops and all interactions. The Killer Shack was also very crowded around the walls and made the collisions known through all realms hard to run consistently, we have cleared the area.

PTB Feedback for the House in Garden Of Joy, we noticed that the position changes of the breakable walls, made it more difficult to deal with the Windows. We have removed the breakables, the structure of house is still problematic it is noted and will be part of a future pass on the building.

Autohaven Wreckers will be more festive this year with added holiday decorations in a few places within the maps.



Graphics Update

  • Added support for FSR 1.0 on all platforms.

Player Profile and Customizable Player Cards

Players can now expect to find their level and grades on a new screen - their Player Profile! Select the badge in the top right (of most menus) to open it. The Player Profile is where players can customize their Player Card.

Players now have a Player Card and can earn collectable banners and badges to customize it! New banners and badges come in a variety of rarities and appearances and can be earned from Tome and Archive rewards as well as Events. Players will be able to see their new customized player cards in a variety of menus including the end-of-match tally screen where they can show them off to other players.
