Spread Uroboros with Albert Wesker in Dead by Daylight Resident Evil Project W

Dead by Daylight, the popular asymmetric multiplayer horror, launches its next chapter on August 30th, 2022. Called Project W, the new chapter once again sees iconic Resident Evil characters finding their way to the one-versus-four survival horror. Joining the long list of dreadful, brutal murderers of Dead by Daylight is Albert “The Mastermind” Wesker. The cold-blooded perfectionist is here with one goal in mind, to spread his Uroboros virus without stopping until every single survivor is infected. And for that task, he comes equipped with the following abilities:

  • Superior Anatomy – After a Survivor performs a fast vault in your immediate vicinity, your next vault gains a significant speed boost.
  • Awakened Awareness – When carrying Survivors, the Auras of all Survivors in your Terror Radius will be revealed.
  • Terminus – When the Exit Gates are powered, any Survivor injured, downed, or Hooked will become Broken until at least one of the Exit Gates is opened. Once the Endgame Collapse begins, the Broken Status Effect will linger for a duration.
  • Virulent Bound – Charge your Bound Attack to launch forward and strike. If your Bound collides with a Survivor, they will be briefly seized and Infected with Uroboros

Utilize agent Ada Wong and Dr Rebecca Chambers to Secure Victory over Killers

Luckily, mysterious secret agent Ada Wong and Dr Rebecca Chambers are here to help. To put a stop to the mad scientist, you’ll need all hands on deck. And Ada and Rebecca have quite a few tricks up their sleeves. Dr Chambers is a support-oriented character, which thrives from helping other survivors and from being in their vicinity. On the other hand, Ada uses her sneakiness and gadgets to outsmart and outlast brutal adversaries on her way.

And of course, for a perfect atmosphere and Resident Evil immersion, the update also comes with the reworked Raccoon City Police Department Map, waiting for you to explore it and unravel its secrets. For more details on the update, check out the official Dead by Daylight Project W page.

Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
