Over on the Dead by Daylight site, Behaviour Interactive tells us that new killer Ji-Woon Hak — known as The Trickster — is a "famed singer by day, calculating serial killer by night," and "thirsts for notoriety above all, treating both his music and his murders as high art." The Trickster comes armed with several different abilities and perks. His Showstopper ability allows him to throw "a fury of throwing knives with rapid-fire speed." The Trickster starts out with 60 Blades and can replenish these at lockers. Each time he manages to hit a survivor with a Blade, the survivor's Laceration Meter goes up until they are either injured or downed — but if the survivor manages to escape his attacks for a while, the Laceration Meter will start to empty. Plus, "hitting a Survivor with a basic attack immediately decreases their Laceration Meter." The Trickster, meanwhile, has an Event Meter which fills each time a Blade hits a survivor. When it's filled all the way, it triggers his special ability, Main Event, which allows him to throw endless Blades for as long as Main Event is activated.

Along with his knife-wielding skills, the Trickster also comes with three perks: Starstruck, Hex: Crowd Control, and No Way Out. Starstruck means that if you're carrying a survivor, nearby survivors will also "suffer from the Exposed status effect for a brief duration." The Hex briefly blocks any any window that a survivor "performs a rushed vault through." Lastly, No Way Out delivers tokens for hooking survivors. At the end, the Entity will block the Exit Gate switches — how long they are blocked depends on how many tokens The Trickster managed to earn. Facing The Trickster is new survivor Yun-Jin Lee, whose three perks include Fast Track, Smash Hit, and Self-Preservation. Yun-Jin also earns tokens when a survivor is hooked, which can then be used for a progression bonus "after successfully performing a great Skill Check on generators." Smash Hit lets you sprint away after stunning The Trickster with a pallet, and Self-Preservation will hide Pools of Blood, Grunts of Pain, and Scratch Marks for a short time if another survivor nearby gets hit.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
