Dead by Daylight announces Tomb Raider DLC with Lara Croft

Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight surprise revealed their newest upcoming DLC featuring Lara Croft as a playable Survivor.

Dead by Daylight has been stepping up in recent years with licensed killers based on video games instead of just classic horror movies. To date, the game has Pyramid Head from Silent Hill, Nemesis and Wesker from Resident Evil, and the titular Alan Wake.

Most recently the game added a licensed DLC featuring Vecna from Dungeons & Dragons. Now Tomb Raider is joining the popular asymmetrical horror game.

Like all new characters, Lara Croft will come with three new unlockable perks that once unlocked, can be played with any Survivor. You can check them out below.

New perk: Finesse

  • This perk activates while you are healthy. Your fast vaults are 20% faster. This perk goes on cooldown for 40/35/30 seconds after performing a fast vault.

New Perk: Hardened

  • After you unlock a chest and cleanse or bless a totem, this perk activates. Anytime you would scream, reveal the Killer’s aura for 3/4/5 seconds instead.

New Perk: Specialist

  • Each time you open or rummage through a chest, gain 1 token, up to 3/3/3. When you do a great skill check on a generator, consume all tokens. Then for each token consumed, reduce the maximum required generator progress by 2/3/4.

The Dead by Daylight DLC featuring Lara Croft from Tomb Raider is set to release on July 16.

Dead by Daylight is available now on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, and iOS. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
