Fans of Dead by Daylight and Resident Evil are in for a treat. With the debut of ‘Project W’, players can now get to enjoy the inclusion of Albert Wesker, Ada Wong, and Rebecca Chambers in the long-running Dead by Daylight survival game.

Continuing the Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil partnership, ‘Project W’ not only adds three iconic characters to the game, but players will also get to enjoy a rework of the Raccoon City Police Department Map. The latest chapter also brings new outfits to let players take control of even more RE characters such as Carlos Oliveira, Sheva Alomar, and Hunk.

Serving as a Killer, Albert Wesker is all about capturing Survivors by using his superhuman speed and infecting them with Uroboros. From what I can understand, the impact of the Uroboros infection will vary. As for the in-game skills, ‘Virulent Bound’ gives Albert a relentless burst of speed. ‘Superior Anatomy’ quickens Albert’s window vault (depending on circumstances). ‘Awakened Awareness’ reveals the auras of other Survivors in Albert’s Terror Radius while carrying a Survivor. With ‘Terminus’, once five generators are fixed, certain Survivors will become Broken until the Exit Gates are open.

Coming to the international spy Ada Wong, her character is supposed to be one who prioritizes survival (basically her own survival). ‘Wiretap’ lets Ada install a spy trap after repairing a generator to reveal a Killer nearby. ‘Reactive Healing’ allows Ada to heal herself faster when a teammate gets injured in her vicinity. ‘Low Profile’ enables Ada to hide scratch marks and pools of blood for a duration when she’s the last survivor standing.

Of course, Rebecca Chambers is a selfless healer. ‘Better Than New’ make Survivors, healed by Rebecca, complete their tasks faster by receiving a temporary action speed boost. With ‘Reassurance’, Rebecca can approach a hooked Survivor to pause their struggle progression for a duration. ‘Hyperfocus’ provides a repair progression bonus.

You can see these skills and more in-action by watching the video below!

Talking about the improved Raccoon City Police Department Map, players will get to see a complete quality of life update compared to when the map when launched in 2021. The Raccoon City Police Department will be split into two separate variations built around the West and East Wings, with both including the Main Hall. Level design and gameplay have been improved by adding more navigational paths inside and outside the building.

If you want to play as Carlos Oliveira, Sheva Alomar, and Hunk, you can do so via the Legendary Suits available in the ‘Project W’ Collection. Carlos is available as a Legendary Set for Leon S. Kennedy. Sheva is a Legendary Set for Jill Valentine. Hunk is a Legendary Set of The Legion.

There are other outfits available, too, including 7 Very Rare Outfits. There’s the Albert Wesker’s S.T.A.R.S. Outfit, Leon S. Kennedy’s Detective Noir Outfit, Ada Wong’s Undercover Espionage Outfit, Rebecca Chambers’ Cowgirl Outfit, Jill Valentine’s S.T.A.R.S. Outfit, Feng Min in the Jill Cosplay Outfit and Felix Richter in the S.T.A.R.S. Uniform Outfit.

The Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil ‘Project W’ Chapter is currently available via Steam, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Epic Games Store, Windows Store, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.
