Dead by Daylight Reveals Chapter 18 ‘A Binding of Kin’

by | Nov 12, 2020

It feels like an age since Dead by Daylight released their last chapter, Chapter XVII: Descend Beyond, in September, but the truth is that alongside Covid, the US election and everything else in between, it’s barely been a (Nurses) blink. 

This week started with a teaser of what was to come, which showed the peaceful woodland setting being broken with a shrill cry and a claw swiping. 



This had the community leaping at ideas of what it could be?





But we did not have long to wait as the teaser for Chapter XVIII: A Binding of Kin dropped in the days following. This revealed one of the most unique killers we have seen in a long time, with the introduction of Charlotte and Victor, known as The Twins. This unique killer is actually two, as Charlotte carys her parasitic twin, Victor, inside her. Charlotte’s killer power gives her the ability to release Victor out into the map to detect, hunt and even down the survivors.

and they have the following perks:


  • You protect what little you have and are perceptive to those rummaging through your stockpiles.
  • Receive a loud noise notification when Survivors interact with a chest or when they pick up an item within 24 meters of your location.
  • The trial begins with up to 2 additional chests in the environment. The rarity of items found in all chests is decreased.


  • Life has been difficult for you, so you’ll make it difficult for others.
  • When you damage a generator, up to 3 other random generators also begin regressing.
  • If the affected generators are being repaired, any Survivors repairing them receive a difficult Skill Check.
  • Oppression has a cooldown of 120 seconds.

Coup De Grace:

  • As the end nears, you go in for the kill.
  • Each time a generator is completed, Coup de Grace grows in power. Gain a token.
  • Consume one token to increase the distance of your next lunge attack by 60%.

The chapter also comes with a survivor called Élodie Beaumont

Who has the following perks:


  • You have a careful eye that notices what many overlook.
  • Start the trial with 3 tokens. When a chest has already been opened, consume a token to search it for an item.
  • You unlock chests 80% faster.


  • Your adventurous lifestyle requires moments of crafty misdirection.
  • Interacting with a locker while sprinting will trigger a loud noise notification at your location and cause you to leave no scratch marks for 3 seconds.
  • You no longer enter lockers while sprinting and while this perk is active.

Power Struggle:

  • You’ve never given up and you’re not about to start now.
  • While being carried by The Killer, reaching 25% progress activates Power Struggle. While Power Struggle is active, you can drop a nearby pallet to Stun The Killer.
  • Power Struggle is deactivated when it triggers successfully.


Sadly no new map, but this may be due to their current plan of updating all the current maps in the game. On the PTB several of the newly updated maps .

No news on when this chapter will be available, but expect it to hit in the next month or so.
