Alan Wake Joins Dead by Deadlight with Signature Perks

After teasing him with a mysterious Twitter post on January 8, 2023. Video game developer Behavior Interactive has posted an official reveal trailer for Dead by Daylight’s next crossover survivor: Alan Wake.

Alan Wake first debuted in Remedy Studio’s popular survival horror game Alan Wake and has since gone on to be a horror icon who has tied all of Remedy’s games together into a single universe. Alan’s most recent appearance was in the 2023 Game of the Year nominee Alan Wake 2.

Alan Wake Perks in Dead by Daylight

In a forum post, Behavior Interactive detailed how Alan Wake would play in Dead by Daylight and highlighted all of his avaiable perks. They are as follows:

Champion of Light

While you are holding a flashlight, this perk activates. When you are shining a flashlight, you have 50% Haste. When you successfully blind the Killer, they also gain 20% Hindered for 6 seconds. This effect cannot stack with itself. Then, this perk goes on cool-down for 80/70/60 seconds.

Boon: Illumination

Press and hold the Ability button 1 near a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a Boon Totem. Soft chimes ring out in a 24 meter range. Survivors inside your boon totem’s range see the aura of all chests and all generators in blue. If you have a lit boon totem, you cleanse or bless totems 6/8/10% faster. You can only bless one Totem at a time. All equipped boon perks are active on your Boon Totem.


This perk activates when you are injured. Skill Checks appear 6/8/10% more frequently when repairing or healing and appear in random places. The penalty for missing skill checks is reduced by 50%.

Fans of Dead by Daylight immediately noted how useful Alan’s Champion of Light perk seems and can’t wait to get their hands on him when he finally releases.

Alan Wake will be added to the game as a playable survivor on January 30, 2023. In addition to adding Alan Wake, Dead by Daylight will be receiving a path to further rebalance the generator system as well as the killer Onryo. Full details can be read in this forum post.

Dead by Daylight is currently available to download on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, Android, IOS, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
