Alan Wake Officially Announced For Dead By Daylight

Alan Wake Dead by Daylight

After being teased on Monday, Alan Wake has officially been announced as a new survivor in Dead by Daylight.

He will be available starting January 30 on all platforms.

“Trapped in the Dark Place and fighting to escape, Alan’s attempt to write his freedom leads him into The Entity’s thralls, trading one Dark Place for another,” Behaviour Interactive said in the announcement.

Alan Wake’s perks in the game are as follows:

  • Champion of Light: While you are holding a flashlight, this perk activates. When you are shining a flashlight, you have 50% Haste. When you successfully blind the Killer, they also gain 20% Hindered for 6 seconds. This effect cannot stack with itself. Then, this perk goes on cool-down for 80/70/60 seconds.
  • Boon: Illumination: Press and hold the Ability button 1 near a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a Boon Totem. Soft chimes ring out in a 24-meter range. Survivors inside your boon totem’s range see the aura of all chests and all generators in blue. If you have a lit boon totem, you cleanse or bless totems 6/8/10% faster. You can only bless one Totem at a time. All equipped boon perks are active on your Boon Totem.
  • Deadline: This perk activates when you are injured. Skill Checks appear 6/8/10% more frequently when repairing or healing and appear in random places. The penalty for missing skill checks is reduced by 50%.

In addition to Alan Wake becoming a playable character, the game’s first limited-time modifier will also be launching. Called Lights Out, players will “find themselves in a terrifying atmosphere stripped of several of the key tools they’re used to.”
