It looks like the speculation was correct: the Dead by Daylight Hellraiser update has been confirmed by Behaviour Interactive. Best of all, you can play as The Cenobite on the test servers right now!

Late last week, Behaviour Interactive released a teaser that had some fans speculating that a Five Nights at Freddy's character was coming to the game. However, other people pointed out that the teaser had a better chance of involving the 1987 film Hellraiser. Welp, it turns out the people who guessed Hellraiser were right — the Cenobite is coming to Dead by Daylight.

Surprisingly, Behaviour Interactive revealed that the Dead by Daylight Hellraiser update is available to play right now — but it's not yet in the live game. Instead, you're going to have to hop onto the Player Test Build.

The Dead by Daylight 5.2.0 PTB Update patch notes are quite short at the moment; indeed, the most prominent feature is the addition of The Cenobite to the game. The Public Test Build is now live as of 11:00 AM EDT, so you can jump right in! Read this web page to find out how to get into the PTB and play as The Cenobite right now.

When is the Dead by Daylight Hellraiser Release Date?

Sadly, the Dead by Daylight Hellraiser release date has not yet been announced. Although The Cenobite is on the game's Player Test Build, it's not yet available in the live game according to today's tweet.

For now, all we know is that the Dead by Daylight Hellraiser crossover is coming "soon." You can get into the action yourself right now by buying Dead by Daylight for PC and consoles via its official website starting at $19.99 or your regional equivalent.
