NOTE - Dead by Daylight Chapter 25 'Resident Evil: PROJECT W' is now live!
Original Story Follows – Dead By Daylight Chapter 25 is the next major update planned for Behaviour Interactive’s hugely popular survival horror game and it’s giving fans more of what they love: Resident Evil themed content.
Sure a new original killer would be nice, but after the barnstorming success of the last Resident Evil themed DLC, you can hardly blame Behaviour Interactive for going back for a second bite of the cherry.
For everything, you need to know about what’s coming to the game in Chapter 25, read on!
Just below you’ll find a rundown of the latest news for this upcoming chapter.
Dead By Daylight Chapter 25 starts tomorrow, on August 30! Get ready for the full release of the new killer (Wesker), survivor, and map updates!
Behaviour Interactive has confirmed that Project W, Dead By Daylight Chapter 25, will release next week on Tuesday August 30. As with previous chapter releases we suspect the new chapter has a start time of 6pm BST.
A child prodigy, Rebecca Chambers graduated from college at age 18. As a Rookie Police Officer, she was the youngest member of the Special Tactics and Rescue Service assigned as a field medic with Bravo Team. Dispatched by S.T.A.R.S. to the Arklay Research Facility, her squad investigated a series of grisly murders. While exploring an abandoned train, she discovered undead monsters and mutated animals. She escaped to an even more horrifying place, an old underground Umbrella Corporation facility filled with shocking abominations.
Desperate to find the other members of Bravo Team, she followed their disembodied voices into a mysterious, black fog that seemed to appear from nowhere. As Rebecca pushed through the heaving fog, she suddenly heard menacing footfalls behind her. Instinctively, she reached for her sidearm, but her holster was empty. Her weapons were gone. As she turned, she heard a guttural roar and quickly evaded a massive club-like weapon. Clambering to her feet, she rushed toward a flickering light in the darkness.
Everything about Ada Wong was an enigma. Her history, her nationality, her allegiances, her motives, even her real name was a mystery. Was she a corporate spy working against the Umbrella corporation? Was she loyal to Albert Wesker? Or was she a double agent? And why was she after the Las Plagas parasite?
Clearly, she was a trained assassin. A weapon’s expert with advanced martial arts training. While investigating Los Illuminados, she was captured and nearly killed in a ritual sacrifice. But in the end, she escaped and was never seen again. That, too, was an enigma.
Albert Wesker was a high-ranking official in the Umbrella Corporation. While he made great strides with Umbrella, his ambition drove him to betray the corporation. Believing himself the best test subject, he exposed himself to the Prototype virus. Now with superhuman strength, Wesker faked his death and went underground with a new plan: expose the world to Uroboros, a biological weapon that would eliminate the weak and leave only the strong.
Wesker began to put his plan to action in Africa but was confronted by members of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance at a hangar stocked with missiles carrying Uroboros. Determined to be at the vanguard of evolution, he once again made himself a test subject. Exposing himself to Uroboros, he began to evolve in ways he could have never imagined. But as he felt his cells change, a strange black fog seeped into the hangar and filled his vision. When the fog finally dissipated, he found himself in another world surrounded by lesser beings that deserved to be put out of their misery.
Behaviour Interactive has at long last revealed Project W, the next chapter coming to Dead By Daylight.
This Chapter features a new Killer – Albert Wesker, The Mastermind – and 2 new Survivors, Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers. The Raccoon City Police Department Map has also been reworked.
No release date has been mentioned just yet, but we suspect it’s only a few weeks away.
Take a look at the latest CGI announcement trailer, just below or on the link:
Looks like we’ll get our first look at Wesker if we all tune in for the Behaviour Beyond livestream taking place on Wednesday, August 3rd.
Resident Evil Project W Chapter Announcement
Behaviour Interactive has now officially announced a teaser for this upcoming chapter. Although, they’re still being coy on exactly what it includes or entails. As part of the 6th Anniversary event Behaviour Interactive announced their second collaboration with Capcom as part of another Resident Evil Chapter and before the big reveal, Creative Director Dave Richard told Turtle Beach the following:
“At last year’s anniversary, we announced that we were collaborating with Capcom on a Resident Evil chapter and the reception was amazing. Players really enjoyed to be able to play with Nemesis, Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine and to play in the Raccoon Police Department. So we’re thrilled to announce that we’re collaborating again with Capcom with the development of another Resident Evil chapter. The Chapter will be named ‘Project W’, it will be will be coming before the end of 2022, and it will feature more iconic in characters of the franchise and we invite our fans to keep there eyes open for an announcement coming in the next few months.”

Chapter 25 Leaks
Right, let’s get into the good stuff, the leaks! As mentioned, Chapter 25 could see a return for more Resident Evil content.
Supposedly this will include Albert Wesker as the killer, alongside Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers as the two new survivors. Wesker, for those who don’t recall, is one of the game’s biggest reoccurring villains, and known for his superhuman strength and speed. Quite how he would work as a killer isn’t clear right now, since he doesn’t have that many recognisable traits like The Nemesis tyrant.
In addition to the survivors and killers, we could see more tweaks to the Raccoon City Police Station map. Reportedly it’s been noticed that as far back as November 2021 fans had spotted what looked like files relating to three new Raccoon City Police Station map variants on the PTB, which are currently unused. Presumably this would work in the same way as the Badham Preschool maps, which has up to 5 different layouts and variations. That said, we find it hard to believe that this would be the only new map addition.
I'm sure you remember this leak.

Dead By Daylight Chapter 25 Release Date
At the time of writing, there is no official release date for Dead By Daylight Chapter 25. In truth, we still don’t have a Dead By Daylight Chapter 24 release date! However, when it comes to new content and chapters, the game runs almost like clockwork, with each chapter lasting roughly three months, so working out when Chapter 25 will drop isn’t too difficult to predict.
With this in mind, it seems likely that Chapter 25 should arrive in roughly three months after Chapter 24. Chapter 25 will probably arrive around the start of September.
But don’t take out word for it, check out the table below to see how long each chapter has lasted previously to see how we’ve worked out when this chapter will start.
