Patch Notes - November 29, 2018
New character:

A new hunter, Mad Eyes (Burke) has joined the manor. Claim the S quality costume, Enraged to unlock this character for free;

  • External Trait - Console: Burke has full authority over consoles. He can use consoles on the map to operate any control monitor. Survivors can decode consoles and gain limited access to them when decoded. They can expend an increased amount of energy to use the control monitor in the console's area of influence. When a survivor is logged into a console, Burke is unable to access that console's control monitor and the console is unable to restore energy;
  • External Trait - Control Monitor: There is a control monitor in each console's area of influence. Drag the thumbstick to move across the monitor's field of vision and press the screen to raise a fence in that location. The amount of energy expended each time this action is performed increases with every fence raised;
  • External Trait - Fence: Raising fences inflicts half the damage of a normal attack upon survivors in the area. Survivors can vault fences using the action button, which will also cause fences to be lowered. Vaulting fences will inflict the same amount of damage as a normal attack. Survivors can also choose to wait for the fence to become disabled. Nearby fences are disabled ahead of time if the exit gate has been activated, there are undecoded cipher machines, active rocket chairs, consoles or basements in the area;
  • Shapeshift - Portable Console: Tier 1 ability. Burke can use the portable console to patch into a monitor directly, but using the portable console consumes more energy;
  • Shapeshift - Overclock: Tier 2 ability. Can be used on the control monitor interface after this ability has been unlocked. The cooldown time and amount of energy consumed will be greatly decreased. This control monitor will be unable to restore energy for a period of time after Overclock has been used.
