New killer The Skull Merchant

DBD Chapter 27 release date 1

Along with this new killer is a unique killer power that we haven’t seen before: Drones. As detailed on the Dead by Daylight PTB, her powers and perks act as follows:

Eyes In The SkyThe Skull Merchant starts the trial with four Drones. Pressing the Power Button places a Drone, which enters Active Mode after a short boot-up period. In this mode, the Drone created a Detection Zone around itself. Within it, the Killer is Undetectable, and Survivors gain Lock On progress. The Drone reverts to Scouting Mode when no Survivor is detected for a while.In Scouting Mode, the Drone begins a sweeping scan, and if it finds a Survivor, it re-enters Active Mode. Survivors can interact with a Drone to disable it. If they fail, it enters Active Mode; if they succeed, it returns to the Killer, but the Survivor is stuck with a Claw Trap.
Special Effect: Claw TrapA Claw Trap broadcasts the Survivor;’s location to the Killer until its battery dies. If they get too close to a Drone, it enters Active Mode and the Claw Trap’s battery is recharged. The Killer can press the Ability Button to open a Radar to see the locations of Survivors with Claw Traps and those in a Detection Zone.
Special Effect: Lock OnWhen full, the Survivor is revealed by Killer Instinct while inside a Drone’s Detection Zone, and suffers from the Exposed status effect until the meter discharges or they are put into the dying state.
Game AfootWhile you are chasing the Obsession, this perk activates. Damaging generators and breaking walls or pallets gives you a 5% Haste status for 8 seconds. Whenever you hit the Survivor with the total most time in chase with a basic attack, they become the Obsession.
LeverageEach time you hook a Survivor, gain 1 token, up to 10. When you hook a Survivor, this perk activates. For each token, reduces the speed at which Survivors heal by 3% for 30 seconds.
THWACK!After hooking a Survivor, the next breakable wall or pallet you break will make Survivors within 32 meters scream and reveal their auras for 4 seconds.THWACK! is active for 40 seconds after the Survivor is hooked.

New Survivors

Not one but two new survivors arrive in The Fog in Chapter 27. These two characters will receive “Teamwork Perks,” which are said to “benefit those who choose to work together.” You can take a look at their perks below:

Cut LooseAfter performing a rushed vault in a chase, this perk activates. While active, your rushed vaults are silent for up to 4 seconds, and successfully performing a rushed vault during that time resets the timer.This perk goes on cool-down for 45 seconds.
Friendly CompetitionWhenever you finish repairing a generator with at least one Survivor, this perk activates. You and other Survivors who finished repairing the generator with you get 5% increased repair progress speed for 45 seconds.Survivors can only have one instance of this perk’s ability active at once.
Teamwork: Power of TwoWhenever you finish healing another Survivor, you both move 5% faster as long as you stay within 12 meters of the Survivor you healing, or until one of you loses a health state.Can only be triggered once every 180 seconds, and Survivors can only be affected by one Teamwork: Power of Two effect at a time.
Background PlayerAfter you unhook another Survivor, break into a sprint at 150% of your normal running speed for 6 seconds and gain Exhaustion for 60 seconds. This perk cannot be used while suffering from Exhaustion.
Blood RushThis perk activates once you are one hook away from instant death. While healthy, running, and suffering from Exhaustion, press the Active Ability Button 1 to lose a health state and recover from Exhaustion instantly, gaining the Broken status effect for 28 seconds.You are automatically healed from injured to healthy after 28 seconds. Being put into the dying state will cancel the healing effect. Activating Blood Rush will disable it for the trial’s remainder.
Teamwork: Collective StealthWhenever another Survivor finishes healing you, you both leave no scratch marks as long as you stay within 12 meters of the Survivor healed you, or until one of you loses a health state. Can only trigger once every 180 seconds.

So, that’s everything we know so far about Dead by Daylight’s Chapter 27: Tools of Torment.
