Dead By Daylight’s new Chapter 25 killer has been revealed and it’s the notorious Albert Wesker, who is also known as ‘The Mastermind’, in the game.
The first details about the new killer have already been revealed after the game’s new chapter hit the PTB build of the game. After a few weeks the killer will make his way to the main branch of the game on console and PC, along with new survivors Ada Wong and Rebecca Chambers.
For now though, here’s everything we know about the new killer, including his power, perks and lethal new memento mori
Albert Wesker Lore
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.
Wesker Killer Power – Virulent Bound
“The Mastermind can barrel forwards, infecting Survivors with the Uroboros Virus or leaping over obstacles.”
Wesker Special Attack – Bound Attack
Press and hold the Power button to charge a Bound Attack. While charging, The Mastermind moves slightly slower, as he prepares his strike. When charged, press the Attack button to Bound.
- Hitting a Survivor with a Bound Attack afflicts them with Infection.
- Hitting a Survivor already afflicted with Infection with a Bound Attack will increase their Infection.
- Crashing into something during a Bound Attack will slam a nearby Survivor, causing damage; if not, the Survivor is thrown and loses a Health State if they are thrown into any solid object.
Wesker Special Ability – Bound Vault
If The Mastermind hits a dropped Pallet or a Window while using Virulent Bound, he vaults over the obstacle.
Wesker Special Affliction – Uroboros Infection
The Uroboros Infection builds over time.
Upon reaching Critical Infection, the Survivor suffers from the Hindered Status Effect, reducing their Movement speed by -8 %.
If The Mastermind grabs and slams a Critically Infected Survivor while using Virulent Bound, he will automatically begin to carry them.
