Dead by Daylight Update Fixes Issues with Alien DLC, Patch Notes Revealed

Dead by Daylight's new Alien DLC gets some welcome bugfixes.

Dead by Daylight's Alien DLC is out now with players finally able to hunt Survivors as the Xenomorph from the Alien movie or survive themselves as Ellen Ripley. While that paid DLC spent some time on the test servers to work out any issues before its release, some problems still persisted or only became evident after the DLC was already out. Thankfully for those who've already bout the Alien Chapter, developer Behaviour Interactive returned this week with another update focused more on bugfixes with many of those fixes tied directly to the Alien Chapter, its new characters, and the Nostromo Wreckage map.

No balance changes were included in this update, so aside from any conveniences that have been added through resolved bugs, the power levels of the Xenomorph and the perks for it and Ripley remain the same. The full set of patch notes for the update released on September 5th can be found below:
