Dead by Daylight finally brings cross progression between PC and Consoles

Cross-progression update that everyone has been waiting for.

So far, the only progress you could share in Dead by Daylight has been between Steam and Epic accounts. Fans have been asking for cross-progression between PC and consoles for so long and developer BVHR has finally answered.

One of the major QoL updates announced during the Dead by Daylight 8th anniversary stream is an update to the cross-progression feature. While this change doesn't affect everyone, many can now rejoice as they get the ability to play the game on both PC and consoles without losing any progress.

To enable cross-progression, you must own the base game on any platform and have a Behaviour Account. The additional benefit of an account is the What The Fog game which you can get by signing up. You'll need to be fast, though, as it's only free for the first 2 million players that sign up.

Once you log in to your account, head to the Connections tab on your profile to link all of your platforms. When that's done, go to the Game Library and click Merge to synchronize all of your progress.

This feature has limitations, however. Unfortunately, Dead by Daylight mobile is not included since that game is essentially its own experience (I still want those cardboard box skins on the PC game but I doubt I'll ever get them).

Additionally, there are limits to what can be shared between platforms. I'm very interested in what that is and why it can't be shared. According to the live stream, we should get an FAQ very soon so we'll know exactly what to expect.

When will Dead by Daylight add cross-progression?

There is no exact date yet for when the Dead by Daylight cross-progression will be active, but you can expect an update later in the summer. The developers announced more information about the Castlevania chapter on August 6, so there is a chance that we get cross-progression progression then, too. You can keep an eye on the Dead by Daylight website for any new updates about it.
