After Dead by Daylight’s Hellraiser update added good ol’ Pinhead, players are finally getting a new survivor character to balance things out, and she’s appropriately dressed for the spooky season.
The Hour of the Witch update adds Mikaela Reid, a young witch who wouldn’t look out of place in something like Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She’ll be added sometime in October.
Survivor characters are understandably way less sturdy than the hulking murderers chasing them throughout Dead by Daylight, but their unique abilities are meant to make up for that. We don’t know specifics, but developer Behaviour Interactive tweeted “she brings light and life to a realm of darkness and death.” I’d wager she has some sort of healing ability or other support functions thanks to her supposedly magical heritage and spellbook.
