Update 4.5.0 PTB


Features & Content

New HUD Layout - Several HUD elements have been moved or updated

  1. The player status widget (player names, health states etc.) has been redesigned. Along with a number of graphical improvements to animations, the player status widget is now positioned on the left side of the screen. While this change was not made lightly, it was necessary in order to make the player names readable across all platforms and resolutions as well as make room for new HUD elements like the Hook Count.
  2. The objectives have been moved to the top center of the screen to give us more room to display detailed instructions.
  3. Score events and status effect alerts have been moved to the right side of the screen. This was primarily to bring the status effect alerts closer to the status effect indicators they reference.
  4. The number of visible score events has been increased when multiple events are triggered at the same time.

New HUD Element - Hook Counts

  1. Killers see a new widget which displays how many hooks they’ve earned during the match out of the possible total hooks. This is only visible to the Killer.
  2. Survivors see a new set of markers above each of the Survivor player’s names. This lets the Survivor players know how many times each Survivor has been hooked. This is only visible to the Survivors.

New HUD Element - Survivor Portraits

  1. The healthy and injured health state icons have been replaced with each character’s portrait.

UI Scale Sliders
